TS Ent. plans to appeal court decision over Hyosung's contract, claims the court 'did not accept the label's explanation'

Hyosung

On November 16, TS Entertainment delivered an official statement to the press declaring their intentions to appeal the Seoul district court's decision regarding SECRET member Hyosung's exclusive contract with the label. 



TS Entertainment stated, "While it's true that Jeon Hyosung's exclusive contract was declared invalid during the first court trial back on November 14, the court also ruled that the label did not lawfully violate any exclusive contract rules related to balancing profits and income, management authority, etc; as a result, we certainly plan on submitting an appeal." 

The label continued, "Jeon Hyosung filed a lawsuit against TS Entertainment regarding issues of balancing profits and income, violation of management authorities, etc, back in September of 2017; [in the court trial,] Jeon Hyosung's claims were only partially recognized while in entirety, they were dismissed without properly being concluded as valid." 

Furthermore, TS Entertainment claimed that the monetary amount of 130,000,000 KRW (~ $115,000 USD) mentioned in various media reports is not money that they withheld from Hyosung; it is a combined amount of Hyosung's remaining contract fees plus payment Hyosung refused to accept after her lawsuit with the label began. 

Finally, TS relayed, "We are greatly disappointed that the court accepted this amount as the label's failure to fulfill payment duties to the artist, and therefore the label's contract was ruled invalid. We again express our regret toward the court's decision, and will do our best in the appeal case to right the wrongs."

I’m surprised they still get trainees. This company is going way too far. Just pay her for her work and be done with it.

The court "didn't accept the label's explanation"?


Am I missing something here or is it just too early in the morning for this to make sense to me?

yes, the title actually summarizes several yadda yadda paragraphs very well. In essence, the court didn't believe the label and the label went b-b-b-b-b-but!

TS-ent Agency has this newest Court Decision Appeal option available to them (apparently).

But it does seem like HYOSUNG's attempt to RID herself of TS Agency is a NEVER ENDING one.

I wish there was a law when a dumb ass label does the appeal, loses and has to pay twice the amount. if they appeal again - it doubles again.

You forgot the most important part, "plus payment Hyosung refused to accept after her lawsuit with the label began." Yeah, no shit she refused it because she was currently in a legal battle against them. Maybe they should have paid her on time so she wouldn't have to file a lawsuit to get her money.

Trainees probably know what they're getting themselves into. Most of the TS trainees are probably Big 3 cast-offs who are desperate just to debut.

Given TS Entertainment has a history of mistreating and not paying their artists, they obviously saved enough money to file as many appeals as they wish. I say go for it. Keep appealing until you go bankrupt, TS.

IANAL so If anyone is more knowledgeable, kindly correct me but I believe you can only appeal three times - the lower court, which I think this is where this happened; then the second level (the name escapes me) and then the supreme court.

EDIT: Counting is apparently hard for me. What I meant was a case can be heard three times and probably appealed twice - the court above the district one which I still can't remember and then the supreme court.

RE-EDIT: That's it! Appellate court. Thanks to @Kurare's wiki link below.

@krell should know. Tbh, I'm not sure about that, either. I'm merely saying since TS rarely pays their artists, they should have the money to waste on appeals. I feel sorry for Sonamoo, TRCNG and B.A.P. TS' CEO passed away just this April, so you'd think they would be focusing more on stabilizing the company and investing in their current artists, instead of wasting time and money on one of their former artists.

ENGLISH Language S.KOREAN LAW website ; S.K. Lawyer maintained ; GOOD!
S.KOREA COURT APPEALS are not all bad though ; for example -->

https://www.allkpop.com/artisttag/iron

(Rapper) IRON was going to do ZERO JAIL TIME ; until his *abused* ex-GF did COURT APPEAL that.
Finally, I am NOT S.KOREAN, and NOT that good on S.K Law and Legal proceedures.
I *am* interested in certain LEGAL issues as they pertain to S.KOREA though.
The reality that it is ILLEGAL for a S.KOREAN citizen to GAMBLE in a (USA) Las Vegas, NV Casino ; AMAZING! ... ;)

LET IT GO! Damn, they're just damaging themselves and it's looking really bad. It's showing that they're so salty over everything that's happened. Pay up and be done with it.

Knew it...... they won't just easily accept to pay 100+k. From TS pov, they can't just pay whatever the court says. If they can, of course they will appeal. I had hoped that everything will just move on quietly from now on but I competely expected this tbvh
