DCTOM Entertainment is accused of having ties to the Burning Sun club.
On March 22, Kuki News reported the executives of DCTOM Entertainment operated club MU:IN, the "brother club" of Burning Sun.
According to the report, club MU:IN registered their business as a restaurant instead of an entertainment facility to avoid high taxes. In February, the club abruptly shut down.
Kuki News emphasized MU:IN and Burning Sun's connection, claiming CEO Park Seung Do of DCTOM Entertainment was the music director of Burning Sun, and every Thursday, the two clubs opened a collaboration party named 'MU:IN Sun.' DCTOM Entertainment artists including Shaun were DJs at the event.
In response to the report, DCTOM Entertainment stated, "It's true the CEO of DCTOM Entertainment owns a share of MU:IN but the two companies are separate businesses," and said, "DCTOM Entertainment DJs got paid to perform. There is no relation between the Burning Sun and DCTOM Entertainment."
Meanwhile, Shaun is a DCTOM Entertainment artist who was stirred up in a sajaegi (chart manipulation) controversy for "Way Back Home." The song became controversial for beating TWICE's "Dance the Night Away" and placing first on multiple music charts.
