CoCoSoRi dealing with internal problems

Before I start, please realise this is only one side of the story. I actually deleted this article before, because people were very quick to jump to conclusions and it led to hate messages directed at one of the members. The public doesn't know what exactly is true and what is false. Only MOLE Entertainment, Coco and Sori know.


Afbeeldingsresultaat voor cocosori dealing with internal problems


Most people probably haven't heard, including some of their fans, but CoCoSoRi has had some internal problems.

On November 23, Coco talked about how the company had been treating her and her fellow member Sori different from one another with their solo promotions in a Twitch live stream. She started telling her story after watching her music video during the stream, when asked how long it took to learn the dance. She explained it had taken her two days to learn the dance, but to practice she got a week, because her company rushed her.

"They rushed me and I thought, like, they were just so excited to get my album out, like, fast, but the only reason why they rushed me was, they wanted to promote my other member right after me."

For a little bit, it seemed like she would leave it that and would continue her stream, but after she finished watching her music video, she went deeper into the subject after being asked if she missed promoting with Sori. She confirmed she did miss promoting with her fellow member. She stated they used to get a long really well with each other and that they had amazing teamwork. She went on to state that Sori had told her she didn't want to promote as CoCoSoRi anymore and wanted to go into acting, and that she understood, so she continued making music on her own.

She then expressed being upset over not being told about Sori's solo debut.

"Iit just happened like that. And even if it's like the company's decision to prevent her from, you know, doing acting and all that, I thought that she could have at least let me know that she was doing a solo, but she did not and I had to find out the same way as everyone else found out. (...) I literally found out when she posted the Youtube video."

She then went into how the company treated her different from Sori when preparing for the solos.

"I thought my company said they were broke. They didn't have money to support me, so I had to do a kickstarter, I had to ask all my close friends to do everything. But it was because they were preparing for hers. And they even raised a kickstarter for her, but they shouldn't have because they put in, like, triple or quadripple the money they raised on the kickstarter (Makestar) for her. For example, we raised the same amount of like $20K. My production was limited to the $20K. I couldn't max out over it, or they would tell me like 'No, we don't have money for that. We only have $20K'. They kept telling me that, so I did all the adjustments. (...) And then, I got everything under $20K and was like, so proud of myself. I was like 'Dang, I can do this! I could do this without a company. I can raise money and I can release music', you know? But then, yeah, I found out later it's because they were putting all their other money to hers. Her music video was shot by a really famous producer called Zanybros. They made a full set for her music video. And I found this all through, like, her releases. (...) I didn't even know what was going on, because they didn't tell me anything."




She did speculate as to why this was done behind her back.

"Maybe they knew that I wouldn't be okay with the concept that they wanted to do, but originally CoCoSoRi was supposed to be a childfriendly concept. (...) So, I think they just wanted to go a different route."

She ended the conversation her subject by revealing she wasn't going to renew her contract with Mole Entertainment when her contract ends in one and a half year, since they weren't doing anything for her, not even giving her classes, and that she would most likely become an independent artist, since this process has learned she can do it on her own and because she is a bit afraid of companies now.

Some fans are expressing their disapproval regarding the way Coco was treated by their company, while other fans are saying Coco should not be so greedy and just accept that more money went to Sori, since she made it into the debut line-up of two shows and Coco herself had the same amount of opportunities, but didn't make it, plus already having had her solo debut. Some fans are right out shading the members and other fans.



On the 11th of December, MOLE Entertainment released a statement regarding the issue.

It's bad enough when you're in a group of 7 or 9, and you feel left out compared to the attention the other members get, but when you're in a DUO and you're shunned (assuming what Coco is saying is true), then that really sucks. Plus, she has one and a half more years before her contract ends with Mole, meaning things are going to be really awkward between her and Sori, as well as her company, until then.

Frankly, CoCoSoRi has always seemed more like a project group, a duo put together for the purpose of occasional releases, based on the fact that the two women seem so independent. They have their own Youtube channels with a lot of individual material, and they both seem to have a lot of ideas for themselves and their careers.


They've always seemed to be interested in rather doing their own things, which has made it seem like the times they get together under the CoCoSoRi name is just to release something every now and then, while continuing with their individual projects which they seem more passionate about. I'm a subscriber of Sori's YT channel, and based on that she seems very interested in developing her own personal music and performance style, and she hasn't mentioned CoCoSoRi in months. If we don't see them together again, I'm just going to think that they're past their CoCoSoRi phase in their careers and that they are finally embarking on what they want to do as themselves.

Oh man this is so juicy, but to be honest even when the production was more expensive for Sori, Coco's song is better

"But this not where the story ends. Recently, Sori came out with her own statement, in which she contradicted Coco..."


Where is this statement? I assume it's in Korean which I don't understand, but I'd still like to know where Sori published it.

I could tell Coco wasn't being supported by her company, but for her to go and confirm it just really breaks my heart. It must've taken so much to speak up publicly. Honestly her company should just dissolve her contract and let her go if they don't even intend on doing the bare minimum of giving her classes and at least a few thousand dollars for her solo. It's not fair that she was limited to her kickstarter funds when Sori wasn't.

They should have sticked to the crazy child concepts because that was their best work. Besides there'd be plenty of room for them as groups like Orange Caramel and Crayon Pop are gone now. Too bad they wanted to get too serious instead :(

Not a fan of either of them, but if what Coco is saying then I do feel really bad for her. For her to come out and say this while she still has more than year under contract with Mole, then I feel like there is some validity to her story. However, as someone said, if you watch her youtube videos, you would know that she has a pretty wide network of friends that are pretty influential so that's an advantage for her. I feel like she would be much more successful as a youtuber than as a singer. Neither of them are great singers. I personally hate Sori's song (not that Coco's was much better), but I felt like Sori's concept was made to be "sexy" and lowkey pornographic LOL in order to make up for her vocals. Overall, my take on this is that their singing/idol careers will end sooner or later. However, for Coco at least she has youtube, twitch(?), and her network.

I think this wasn't the first time Coco opened about this. I think it was back in August when she first mentioned this on her Twitch stream. Knee-jerk reaction was to feel sorry for Coco but having read some counterpoint on kpop-related subreddits, I guess there's more to it but to be fair, it's sometimes hard to separate where the actual info ends and speculation starts unless you do your own digging and I wasn't really that invested with the story. Still messy though. Coco does seem to be quite serious with being a streamer and have networked well so she has that going for her.

BEFORE any of this info was out I watched the debut of Sori's solo and first thing in my mind was ... "wtf why is Sori's video so fancy and nice?" compared to Sori's... and yeah they were both kickstarted funded but clearly someone got more help from the company AND....... if Sori ends up leaving Mole entertainment I mean... she isn't losing much over a company that debuted a freakin weird broccolli dark circle concept that went no where.

so sori basically disbanded the duo coz she wanted to do acting...then comes back to do music all of a sudden? Even if she DID tell Coco about this, it's still a really douchy thing to do.

WOW, I really like them as a duo, and I was hoping for a new release together after their solo promotions. But it seems CocoSori is over... I don't know who's lying or telling the truth, but is obvious the company gave more money for Sori promotions and I believe that's unfair for Coco.

I don’t think she should’ve said anything about the company to the public. If it’s soemthing that could become a “he said she said” type of thing, people will just pick sides with no evidence, and this is going to hurt her relationship with Sori who’s still her partner. Sori has gotten a lot more exposure and she’s trying to venture off and get her name out there. I think Coco needs to figure out how she can do the same. Of course I feel bad though because shes nice and I like her YouTube channe

all those companies are shady af, i don't know how much truth said Coco, but i even didn't surprised. Coco really need to change company cause with here is the same as with Eric Nam. For a long years he released not much music, all know him as MC, but when he changed company, he bloomed, even i love him as witty MC, but he is good singer. And now there is no CocoSori activities, there is nothing, Coco working just as MC...

this is sad. though i am not in the fandom (just a casual listener) i liked cocosori sytle even bc there not much like them in kpop (just orange caramel and crayon pop but both are dead)

I love Coco. i started to watch her youtube channel bc of joan kim. she seems so sweet. I really hope coco leaves her company and become a independent kpop idol.

i dont know much about sori (i just saw her one or two times in coco´s channel but after that i never saw her again. so now is pretty obvious there is conflict between them)

About the songs frankly i liked more Coco´s song than sori´s one (i still liked sori´s song. i just think her mv is kind trashy though the song is about sex so ofc the mv would be trashy)
