On November 28, the second court trial for the 'MIXNINE' case took place at Seoul Central District Court.
The legal representative of Happy Face Entertainment mentioned YG Entertainment's new survival program, 'YG Treasure Box,' to refute YG's claims stating providing a debut is not their must-fill duty.
Happy Face's side stated, "We want to ask if they will also cancel the debut if the new, similar audition program 'YG Treasure Box' doesn't do well."
YG's side replied, "That's not the point and based on the contract (for 'MIXNINE'), we believe it's a decision that could've been made in this case." YG's legal representative added, "Also, it [YG Treasure Box] has no relevance to this case."
Back in June, Happy Face Entertainment, the label to Woo Jin Young, sued YG Entertainment for canceling the debut of the winning teams.
The next court trial is scheduled for January 16.
