Mafia Records has made an official statement on Nada, Dain, and Jinju's lawsuits to cancel their contracts due to lack of payment.

On June 29, the 3 Wassup members' lawsuits were permitted to move forward, but the agency confirmed their contracts have not been canceled. Mafia Records cleared up reports saying Nada, Dain, and Jinju had successfully won their suits, stating, "It's not true that Nada's side has won. The court ruled that Nada, Jinju, and Dain can successfully terminate their contracts by paying 50 million Won ($43,749.50 USD) each."

However, reports further stated the courts found Nada, Jinju, and Dain's claims about the agency's lack of payment were legitimate, and the three are entitled to a record of accounts.

Stay tuned for updates.

A broke company that couldn't even fund a comeback... It was clear that the girls weren't going to get paid. Worse yet, Mafia doesn't have any solid acts, just a bunch of underground rappers, so they have almost no money coming in. This is a situation alot of nugu groups suffer, with members actually getting part or full time work outside of idol work.I feel for JDN but how exactly did they expect to get paid? They took all of Nada's earnings from UPRS for her solo comeback which did absolutely terrible despite her increase in popularity.

wtf? The courts accept that they have not been paid by their shitty company but rule that they can only leave by buying themselves out? With what fucking money?!?

This agency is a joke.

Huh? What a weird explanation. Doesn't make the company look any better. The girls got the right to terminate their contracts (even though they have to pay for it), and the court concluded that the claims of lack of payment were legitimate. And to think that four of the women still remain under the company despite how the company has treated them.

It's in the name.

So Mafia hasn't been paying them, yet demand payment for them to leave the company...

Mafia doesn't have anything though. Plus, idols have to break even to even begin earning income from albums. Wa$$up has quite some time before that happens. Endorsements are what kept idols afloat but nugu groups seldom achieve those without some ind of hype. Nari, Dain and Nada were the only ones who did some sort of modeling for magzines and Nari is the only one to have appeared on variety until Nada with UPRS.

Wow that's so ridiculous how does this company expect these girls to pay that much money when they filed a lawsuit for no pay.

L_catzzz OhMyGuy Thursday, June 29, 2017

Maybe bcoz they don't have the money to pay for anything at all. Lol. Probably they want the girls to pay to them so that they can use the money to pay to the girls back. xD

I think it's suppose to be a deter, to stop them from attempting to leave. And in some cases, you spend alot more in legal fees because the case will be drawn out (sometimes deliberately). Imagine paying not only 50,000 to the company but all you owe to a lawyer! Idols just wait it out rather than sue.
