Fans who found the contents of Sorn's live stream an interesting topic of discussion translated a portion of the stream, which you can find above. Sorn explains what royalty payments are and how her company manages them and revealed that she decided to check her personal royalty payment account after CLC's recent promotions came to an end. What she discovered was that while she and fellow CLC member Elkie did not receive their payments, the other 5 Korean members did. 


Sorn then recounted how she inquired about the late payment to her company. The company's response was that certain laws in foreign artists' native countries prevent royalty payments from being paid at the same time as other Korean artists, and the company had no control over the matter. The idol then began to question the said law, expressing her frustration about how to change or adjust it. 


According to fans, Sorn further talked about contacting foreign idols from other companies such as GOT7's BamBam and Black Pink's Lisa in the full live stream, and learned that Lisa deals with a similar situation. 


Do you sympathize with Sorn's frustrations? (Below is a longer clip of Sorn's live stream, but without English translations.)
