The representation for the group, who have filed a lawsuit against their management, stated on December 5:

"Starting from March 21 of this year until June, the members traveled to Sendai, Osaka, Tokyo, the Philippines, New York, Dallas, Chicago, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Dusseldorf, Melbourne, Sydney, Taiwan, Singapore, Fukuoka, Nagoya, Chiba, and Bangkok to complete a murderous schedule. Due to their busy schedule, the members suffered mental and bodily fatigue, which was what the 'agency trust problem' referred to.

The first time the members received a settlement of accounts was on August 1, 2014, and the amount was 17,900,000 Won (~$16,058 USD). However, the members had to go through a lot in order to receive their first settlement of accounts. The reason was not because of the amount, but because the agency constantly changed their words and did not reveal documents.

What the members have wanted from their agency since 2013 is one thing, they want the documents of the accounts to be revealed clearly. However, the members' requests were ignored each time. Even now, the members don't know the payment or terms and conditions of the concerts they've fulfilled. Though they asked for an explanation about the cost of 1.55 billion Won (~$1.4 million USD), the agency has not responded for months. 

The agency needs to clearly reveal the usage of 1.55 billion Won for promotions. If the agency does not, it will be difficult to claim legal liability for the money or for reporting a false account to the members. If the costs were legitimate, it doesn't matter if the members are owed 0 Won. 

The agency has no evidence as to whether there are forces or a mastermind behind the lawsuit or what the situation is, and they're simply asserting the false claim that there is. The members are reviewing defamation of character and other legal action against the company for this."

What's your take on the situation?
