Fifty Fifty, the girl group that entered the US Billboard Hot 100 chart in the shortest period of time among all K-pop groups, is currently in a contract dispute with their agency, Attrakt. CEO Jeon Hong-Joon of Attrakt has appealed for a resolution before the August 5th court hearing, saying that the group’s future is at stake.

In an interview with the Munhwa Ilbo, CEO Jeon said that he believes the dispute was caused by “gaslighting” by Dugiverse CEO Ahn Seong-il, who was in charge of Fifty Fifty’s production. He said that the members of Fifty Fifty have not responded to his attempts to resolve the dispute, and that he is worried that the group’s career will be ruined if the situation is not resolved soon.
CEO Jeon also expressed concern that the dispute will be seen as a “good vs. evil” story, which could make it difficult for Fifty Fifty to continue their activities even if the situation is resolved. He said that he hopes for a “calm and rational” resolution so that the group can focus on their music.
The Fifty Fifty contract dispute is a complex and sensitive issue. It is important to remember that both sides have valid concerns, and that a resolution that is fair to everyone involved is essential. I hope that the parties involved will be able to come to an agreement soon so that Fifty Fifty can continue to pursue their dreams.
