The East Light members reportedly never received any payments

THE EAST LIGHT

The East Light's Lee Suk Chul and his brother Lee Seung Hyun have submitted a request of arbitration to Media Line Entertainment

On February 13, the Lee brothers' legal representative told Xports News"Today, we've submitted an arbitration application for payments to the Korean Commercial Arbitration Board."

The lawyer stated, "Media Line has never paid the kids. The agency didn't provide dorms, and they (the kids) paid the lesson fees on their own. We're in the process of checking how the finances worked," and added, "We also have to decide on how the earnings from albums, etc. will be divided in the future."

Meanwhile, the Lee brothers and Media Line Entertainment are in a legal battle surrounding abuse and physical assault.

I don't think they sold enough to make that big of profits to pay the singers but the fact they didn't provide neither dorms nor lessons makes them not only an abusive company but an incompetent one too.

while abuse is a very serious situation and a very serious allegation, its really hard at this point to know what side is telling the truth because things don't seem to add up on either side. as a sun it's really hard to see how both sides are like this now, especially when we don't know whats fully going on. i hope that whichever side that is telling the truth gets the correct justice because this is getting very suspicious to me (also due to the account that sagang and eunsung promoted called "tel factcheck")

The thing is every party involved in the case has admitted that the abuse occurred. The only thing that Media Line has said in defense of themselves is that the abuse was exaggerated not that it isn't true. So no matter what they are in the wrong. If the Lee brothers stretched the truth a bit that's unfortunate on their part b/c if that is revealed they could end up hurting themselves as well, but their statement that they were abused is solid.

The agency already admitted it, but after that they start retracting their statements for damage control. And they tried to put the blame only on the producer.

“It was approximately one year and four months ago that we first became aware of The East Light’s executive producer’s acts of physical abuse towards the group during their training and lessons. Afterwards, we spoke with the members’ parents to resolve the situation, and we promised that such acts would never occur again."
