YG Entertainment claims providing a debut is not their must-fill duty in the first trial for the 'MIXNINE' case

Yang Hyun Suk
On October 31, the first court trial for the 'MIXNINE' case took place at Seoul Central District Court. 

Back in June, Happy Face Entertainment, the label to Woo Jin Young, sued YG Entertainment for canceling the debut of the winning teams. 


At the first trial, the legal representative of Happy Face Entertainment stated, "They promised to release an album if they become the final members. The exclusive management term was 4 months in the contract. It's impossible to extend that period to 3 years suddenly." 

To this, the legal representative of YG Entertainment said, "The contract clause on providing their debut is just a clause, not a duty (that YG must fill)." The lawyer continued, "They were originally planning a short-term of 4 months, but there was absolutely a no (good) outlook in the situation. (A contract extension was suggested because) they would've not been successful and have faced a loss."

Happy Face Entertainment's side refuted, "Saying they couldn't (provide debut) because of failure is just like saying they will only 'swallow when sweet, spit when sour.'"

The court plans to close the case after holding the second trial on November 28.

I was thinking that YGe could offer say $5000 USD to settle 'out of court.'

The MIXNINE TV Show was pretty much a FLOP overall. So, offer the $5K on that basis.

You could say "I am NOT admitting that you are right. But okay, the show FLOPPED. So, take this MONEY?" ... ;)

They could... but that would only serve as compensatory damages... it's the punitive damages that will do him in... unless it's too high that the court will deem it as frivolous and dismiss the case altogether... but I dunno if this is applicable to Korean laws.

Yes ; with S.KOREAN LAW, who knows. I would observe that mostly, a lawsuit between two fairly SIZEABLE Business Firms, would TEND to demand MORE compensation than $10,000 USD. BUT, as you suggested, MAYBE the significant MONEY involved has NOT to do with this $10,000 USD amount that has been reported by K-News Media.

The simple fact is Papa was an idol himself and should f*cking know better to mess with kids dreams. Rain and JYP are both idols who became ceos and treated their idols shitloads better because they too knew the hardships involved. All these trainees basically got treated like shit on Mixnine for nothing....


Papa is becoming more entitled every day and seriously needs to come off his cloud, he's third spot these days. Wake up before you lose it all....

Wow YG hitting a new low. The show's entire premise was for the winning team to be able to debut. So what if they are not successful? Seems like YG is trying to protect his ego since he knows the show flopped and didn't want to see a group debut out of it. Well done.....you've just lied to the 170 people on Mixnine and crushed their dreams and hopes.

What is NOT stated, is that the AMOUNT of MONEY that HAPPY FACE is lawsuiting YGe for it = $10,000 USD.

AKP has reported this MONEY amount in other AKP ARTICLE coverage of this.

Anyway, the MONEY is like NOTHING (meaningless to both parties involved). Some others have commented

about *THE PRINCIPLE* involved? Say the 'principle' of being a couple of TURDS in COURT ??? ... ;)

Maybe this is about 'exercising' your LAWYERS that you have them on 'RETAINER' anyway? ... ;)

Anyway, make of it what you will.

i don't understand with legal dispute or contract problem, but as far as i know if you put that kind of clause in the contract, then it's your duty to fulfill it, i mean you promised them a debut by putting the clause about it on the contract, but you didn't deliver, so it's just a common sense that they are suing you

YG is scum. A rich ass company that hasn’t even paid these small agencies for the expenses of the show yet. As YG stans know, a 3 year extension would have turned into YG doing nothing for the artists. I see how they have the authority to make these stupid decisions with their own trainees, but to avoid their responsibilties for a very clear contract with smaller agencies is beyond arrogant.
