Media Line CEO announces defense press conference to refute The East Light members' claims of violence and abuse

Media Line Entertainment's CEO Kim Chang Hwan has announced an official press conference being held on December 26 at 2 PM KST, with aims to defend his company against former The East Light members Lee Suk Chul and Lee Seung Hyun's previous claims of violence and abuse within the company.

In addition to CEO Kim Chang Hwan, another Media Line representative Lee Jung Hyun as well as former The East Light members Lee Eun Sung and Jung Sa Kang will be present during this press conference.

Media Line revealed in an official statement, "After our plaintiff's parents and legal representatives used their minor-aged children as the front-runners of their case in order to twist the truth with various lies through their press conference in October, as well as through numerous follow-up interviews, not only has our company but also the other 4 members of The East Light suffered serious defamation of character to the point that the company was forced to let go of the majority of employees with the danger of closing down permanently. And still, we were forced to take full moral and directorial responsibility for all of the consequences resulting from failure to properly manage our former employees; yet, we have remained silent for the past two months with the belief that the honest truth will be revealed in due time, as participating in more media interviews would only lead to further pain for The East Light members."

The statement continued, "However, while we expected the police investigation team to investigate this case properly without any bias, they chose to ignore most of our evidence, testimonies from individuals on our side, as well as evidence seized through two accounts of search warrants; instead the police are unfairly involving the media's false articles in the legal investigation, thus resulting in a conclusion based heavily on prejudice."

According to Media Line Entertainment, they plan to reveal "factual evidence" which they submitted during their police investigation during the upcoming press conference, in order to provide a proper defense against their legal opponents.

Back in September, The East Light's oldest former member Lee Suk Chul came forward in a testimony to the press, confessing years of violence and child abuse suffered at the hands of their producer Moon Young Il, while the company's heads including CEO Kim Chang Hwan watched without aid. Stay tuned for updates on the ongoing legal dispute.

Boohoo all I hear is the company whining and putting on a front after being caught in the act and realising they will be brought to justice.


Either way I hope a fair trial is conducted and the media is kept well out of this case as they have a tendency to shake things up which is the last thing anyone needs.

Korea needs to implement some kind of "duty of care" law for companies like these. When they accept minors as trainees or idols then the company should be responsible for protecting them and they should be able to be punished with jail time and huge fines if they're found to be negligent. It's ridiculous that these guys are trying to shift all the blame onto one person when,at the very least, it was THEIR RESPONSIBILITY to protect the minors whose parents were trusting them to take care of their children.

I hope they don't defend the company there is proof already which what happened etc they'd be idiots to defend the company and betray the former members :L. If they do they probably got forced into :/ or maybe did they bribed or threatened. At this point the parents would have gotten involved so maybe the parents perhaps got them to do it ?

They sound like politicians. No one will ever believe them. Their lawyers should have mum them so the public will not see them making excuses and filing up crazy reasons. I don't know what happened but I don't think those two boys will bet their careers to seek justice. They could've left the company and started anew but they chose a different path.

you were silent for 2 months trying to make fake evidence of how you are not as much of a POS, not because you cared about causing more pain cuz you know, the pain you already caused you won't even get close to with a press conference so stop lying.

Defamation of characters of the other members, are you serious, you just angry cause they left your ass because of what you did to them. I hope they take this all the way and let it be an eye opener for other companies that abusing your power and those under your company will get you jail time.

yes, something you call every male celebrity just for being male...you wished them all to die with your longan_lychee account on a daily basis, because according to you, theyre all criminals and rapists, who use their money and fame to get away with it...you showed nicely how disgusting you are when you were so happy when jonghyun died and became han seo hees biggest fan, when she used his death just to get some attention for herself...you also loved how she shit on top who was suffering from depression and called his suicide attempt fake and just something he did to get some attention...

that the disgusting sexist trash you are and you use such cases to further justify your hate for all men, while you dont care one bit about any victims, just for your own hate for men, because of your own ugliness, that makes all men throw up, when they look at you...
