SEOUL - Attrakt, the music label responsible for the K-pop rookie group Fifty Fifty, has ended its exclusive contracts with three of its members—Saena, Aran, and Sio—effectively resolving a protracted contract dispute.
According to a new release by Yonhap News Agency, Attrakt notified the three members that their contracts have been terminated as of last Thursday. The label took this action citing a "serious breach of contracts" by the members, who have not made any corrections or apologies. The agency mentioned that it will also consider further responses to the members in the future.
The development comes one week after Keena, another member of the quartet, returned to the label and withdrew her legal case against it. The group had suspended its activities since June, when it sought an injunction to suspend their contracts with the agency. The members had claimed that the company failed to provide accounting data and ensure their physical and mental well-being. Despite the denial of the injunction request by a local court in August, the group continued the legal battle. Attrakt also recently filed a damages suit against its outsourced production firm, The Givers, and its co-CEO and music producer Ahn Sung-il, alleging his involvement in the contract dispute.
