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 Entertainmentfor 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.
