Court orders TS Entertainment to pay Hyosung the remainder of her contract fees + unpaid earnings

Hyosung

SECRET member Hyosung has been formally declared the winner of her lawsuit against her former label, TS Entertainment



On November 14, the Seoul Western District Court declared, "TS Entertainment shall pay Jeon Hyosung the remainder of her exclusive contract fees as well as her unpaid earnings, totaling approximately 130,000,000 KRW (~ $115,000 USD). The defendant (TS Ent.) shall also pay for the cost of the lawsuit." 


Hyosung, who filed a lawsuit against TS Entertainment with accusations such as the invalidity of her exclusive contract, withholding of her earnings from her solo schedules, management decisions made without her consent, etc in July of this year, has been on break from her promotions during the period of her lawsuit. 


Then, back in October, Hyosung signed on with a new label, TOMMY & PARTNERS, indicating her intentions to return to broadcast promotions soon. Shortly after receiving her court ruling on November 14, Hyosung took to her Instagram to express her gratitude at the results of the lawsuit, which you can see below.

TS Entertainment knows how to create groups but too shady to manage them.

Lol the amount of money wasted on going to battle with not paying her was so stupid. They just lost more money, when everything could have been solved from the very beginning by paying her salary. Good for her, she deserves the pay. What a sketchy company, wonder why they held her paychecks?

It's because they thought she would loose since she is a female and they a company!

YESSS! I'm so glad she's finally been vindicated and justice served. Too many people think just because someone signs a contract they have to become some sort of slave.

Congratulations to BOTH Hyosung and TS! TS scum of the earth withholding her earnings, that's great. Like really. *eyerolls* I hope withholding HER money and doing all that was worth it for you. The truth always comes out and karma comes around.

Bit surprised that for a 5 year period, one of the most popular girls in Kpop her earnings are only 100k+ That's 20k a year, which isnt that far from minimum wage.


Perhaps that's because they held her back at times, but still. Would've thought she made more money from all the pictorials alone, let alone several solos.
