LOONA fans launch a petition to support the members in their legal dispute against Blockberry Creative

Following the results of the injunctions filed by 9 members of LOONA, fans of the group have decided to go beyond boycotting official LOONA content and merchandise by submitting a petition to provide direct assistance in the ongoing lawsuit to terminate their exclusive contracts with Blockberry Creative.

On January 20, the LOONA Union, formed by fans to unionize for LOONA, first posted an update on Twitter to announce their plan of submitting a formal petition to help end the exclusive contracts of members Haseul, Yeojin, Yves, Gowon, and Olivia Hye, whose injunctions were previously rejected. This decision, in agreement and collaboration with the law firm handling LOONA’s case, was made after receiving professional advice from lawyers closely following the case, who suggested that a petition could be of significant aid to the members in the lawsuit.

Read the entire update below.

The petition form was promptly released on January 27, giving all fans access to participate in the petition until the final submission day on February 9. The petitions will then be delivered directly to LOONA’s law firm.

Meanwhile, it was previously reported that Blockberry Creative was making plans to suspend the entertainment activities of Chuu, Heejin, Kim Lip, JinSoul, and Choerry through their own petition to the Korea Entertainment Management Association and the Korea Entertainment Producers Association.

Stay tuned for more updates on LOONA.

I'm so glad that the fan union is making thoughtful choices, after consulting with legal professionals. They are not playing around; these are serious actions with serious consequences. This is about more than some internet opinion war -- this is about the lives of the LOONA members! My full support goes to the members and the fans who are working so hard to free them.

People speak about wanting real changes in the K-pop industry, and maybe this whole saga is only one step, but I really think the example of LOONA can help bring about some measure of reform.

BBC will be outgunned and outspent going against Loona Union and Orbits. Their tactic now is Scorched Earth. They'll make it so that none of the girls will ever work outside BBC ever again. At this point they know it's a lost cause but they'll exhaust all other options this just to stick it to Orbits one last time...
