On November 10, Black Swan's management agency DR Music released an official press statement, announcing legal action against individual 'A' who has filed a lawsuit against the girl group's member Hyeme.
Previously, it was reported that Hyeme is currently facing a lawsuit for allegedly scamming individual 'A' into lending her approximately 50,000,000 (~ $45,000 USD). Now, a representative of DR Music has spoken up with, "We are very flustered by the sudden news that Hyeme is facing a lawsuit. We would like to first apologize for causing a public disturbance. However, after confirming with Hyeme, we have learned that many aspects of this issue has been greatly exaggerated since the first initial report."
The label continued, "DR Music has hired a legal representative and intends on pursuing legal action against 'A' for defamation of character, spread of false and malicious rumors, threatening, and violation of sexual harassment laws. The individual will also face additional legal action for interference of business and false reporting, which not only damaged Hyeme's character but also inflicted damages on Black Swan's promotions."
Finally, DR Music revealed that Hyeme's exclusive contract with the agency has come to an end as of November 7. The idol member first signed with the agency in 2015 as a member of RaNia, and agreed to carry out Black Swan's debut promotions for 6 months before ending her contract. Despite the fact that they are no longer affiliated with Hyeme, DR Music stressed that they plan on representing Hyeme legally until the end of this ongoing issue.
Meanwhile, Black Swan will be halting all promotions temporarily.
