TS Entertainment announces legal action against Hyosung for signing with a new agency

Hyosung
TS Entertainment is taking legal action against Hyosung for violation of the contract. 

On October 29, TS Entertainment officially announced their plans to take strict legal action against Hyosung for signing with a new agencyTOMMY & PARTNERS

TS Entertainment stated, 

"Our contract with Hyosung is still valid. A court trial is scheduled to take place on November 14, 2018, regarding this matter. Therefore, Hyosung signing with a new agency is a dual contract, and clearly a violation of the contract. 

It's unfortunate how Hyosung signed a new contract and sent out a press release without having any discussion or going through proper procedures with us, in midst of our ongoing legal battle. We will take strict legal action against her for processing a new contract and announcing it to the press, and defaming our image and leading to confusion. 

We appreciate everyone who loves and looks out for our artists. We will work our best for our artists. 

Thank you."


Earlier, Hyosung announced she has signed with a new agency TOMMY & Partners. Meanwhile, Hyosung and TS Entertainment's legal battle on monetary issues is ongoing.

Funny how they can't pay their artist but they can pay their lawyers to sue their artist.

this is EXACTLY why you people need to remove user posted articles and let people only use forum instead, somebody already posted this today and you did not bother to check allowing your brand new website to become even bigger mess. smh. I miss old allkpop.

The previous (earlier) ARTICLE was also done by an AKP Writer @jennywill ... And that ARTICLE did NOT include the 'new' information in THIS AKP Writer ARTICLE (RED CHECK MARK Icon = AKP Employee) that TS Agency would be actively opposing this 'HYOSUNG & TOMMY Agency' situation via LAWYER activity (apparently) ... So, I do NOT see where there is any real complaint to be made about AKP here. MAYBE the first ARTICLE should have included informaton about TS Agency's active opposition. But anyway, this ARTICLE just UPDATES better the information about the full situation. NOTHING wrong in doing that for AKP, as I see it.

so you mean ychofficial is jennywill? and it is necessary to keep BOTH articles even if the second one states more facts? cuz... that makes everything simpler, cleaner, more professional? hmmmmm........ so I do not think you got the point which was to ONLY post VERIFIED employee articles and not random people with incomplete info.

You can start one yourself. Or even better buy over this site and as a owner you can change it back. As new AKP is here to stay. You either accept it or dont come to site again. Moaning is not going to do you any good. They have moved on, you are just struck in the past.

You broke your contract first by not paying her. Since that is so, it is not longer a valid contract. She can do as she please whilst sueing you.

Devil's advocate here, the article did say "Hyosung's contract with TS Entertainment has been temporarily suspended." not that her contract had been nullified or cancelled, the court order means she can get work without TSE interfering not that she can unilaterly join another company.

Just saying.

It's not fucking ONGOING the court already ruled the contract invalid and she's fully within her rights to sign with another agency.

Wow, they just don't want to let her go. She stopped going to them since forever ago and they expect her to respect the contract that they gave her. She hasn't been paid! For goodness sake, let her free of her contract. She deserves to be with a better company that actually pays their artists.

So not only do they not pay her or let her promote they are going to stop her from doing so with another company? Clearly they are just out to save their ass some coins.

Unfortunately I think TS Entertainment is right on this one and Hyosung messed up.


I'm no legal expert but what I'm reading seems to indicate that until the case is heard on November 14th and a final ruling is made Hyosung is still signed exclusively to TSE, a separate court decision was made that she could find work in the meantime without TSE and that is what her lawyer is arguing meaning she can join another agency however it seems to me that signing an exclusive contract with her new agency does indeed violate the terms of her original contract because it's still valid, she would have been better off signing a letter of intent with her new agency then have them represent her on a ad hoc basis until her court case is finalised then joining them fully after if she wins.

It MAY be that TS Agency has a Lawyer on 'Retainer' somehow. Meaning that they pay some 'monthly fee' (flat rate) to have the Lawyer do what is needed for TS Agency. Meaning that this may NOT be that much an 'out of pocket' cost situation for TS Agency. Maybe the LAWYER gets like 90% of whatever MONEY that he can 'Legally Squeeze' out of HYOSUNG and TOMMY Agency, via his activities. TS Agency MIGHT get a little MONEY out of it. And DEFINITELY TS Agency gets to annoy HYOSUNG somewhat.
