The Quiett to serve 5 extra days in military for violation

Hip hop artist and producer The Quiett will be serving an additional 5 days for his enlistment in the military.

JYP Entertainment responds to issues of 2PM’s Clothes Album with subcontractors

On May 12, MBC‘s ‘News Desk‘ reported on the issue of small clothing companies that JYP Entertainment had contracted for 2PM‘s Clothes Album.

MBC interviewed various owners of the companies who had been subcontracted for this special production. Lee Dong Won, who runs a small clothing company with 4 employees, had a contract with JYP Entertainment and printed a quantity of 5,000 Clothes Albums. However, only 140 copies of the Clothes Album were sold, and JYP Entertainment had paid them only for what was sold, and didn’t pay for the remaining unsold products and consequent debt.

It’s not only Lee Dong Won’s company – every other subcontractor who had printed toothbrushes and t-shirts had a debt amounting to over 20,000,000 KRW (approximately $18,000 USD) and 100,000,000 KRW (approximately $90,000 USD) respectively

‘A’ drops lawsuit against Park Si Hoo and his hoobae

Although it seemed like a long battle in the courts was up ahead for ‘A’ and Park Si Hoo, it’s been revealed that things will actually wrap up as ‘A’ has dropped her suit against the actor, who has followed by dropping his own suit against her.

For cases of sexual assault, if the suit is dropped, then prosecution no longer has the authority to indict,” said a rep from the prosecution.

The suit against Park Si Hoo’s hoobae, Mr. Kim, has also been dropped as well, so now all that’s left are the counter lawsuits between the actor and his former agency, and ‘A’s friend ‘B’
