Broadcaster Park Myung-soo talked about the conflict between singer and actor Lee Seung-gi and Hook Entertainment (hereafter referred to as Hook) regarding the music revenue settlement.

On the morning of the 25th, on KBS Radio Cool FM’s ‘Park Myung-soo’s Radio Show’, Park Myung-soo talked about the controversial and big data expert Lee Seung-gi regarding music settlement.

On this day, Park Myung-soo said about the controversy involving Lee Seung-gi, “This is what managers have done a lot in the past.” And they say, ‘I write everything for you’.”

He continued, “You have to hear both sides of the story, but as someone who has been in the entertainment industry for 30 years, it’s a mistake not to give it to you,” he stressed.

In addition, Park Myung-soo said, “Anyway, I hope you won’t go to court. Until then, you can come to an agreement, apologize, donate, and end cleanly.” Yes better to finish by doing well.” He added, “Lee Seung-gi asserts his rights, and I hope he will communicate correctly and share with each other in good condition.”

On the other hand, Lee Seung-gi has been active for 18 years since his debut in 2004 and has released a total of 137 songs, but he claims that he has not received even 1 won by the side of the hook for a music revenue settlement, which he recently sent proof of its contents to his agency.

Regarding this, Hook CEO Kwon Jin-young made a statement on the 21st and said, “If the legal responsibility of Hook Entertainment or that individual is clearly confirmed in the future, we will not go back nor avoid and take full responsibility.” He will be more careful not to cause any harm.”

Since then, the transcript of the conversation that CEO Kwon Jin-young met with agency director and manager Lee Seung-gi on the 17th was released on the 23rd, causing an uproar. In the transcript, CEO Kwon said, “I think I’m sending proof of the content on the way out, but I’m going to kill it with my name on it,” and “I will spend the rest of my life killing that XX.” Director Hook was stopped, but CEO Kwon’s anger did not subside.

Then, on the 24th, Lee Seung-gi’s side conveyed their position that it was true that they sent proof of content related to the failure to settle the music fee to Hook through a legal representative. Lee Seung-gi’s side insisted, “Lee Seung-gi asked for the details of the settlement several times, but the hook side avoided providing the details by making various false excuses such as ‘You are a negative singer’.” “During this process, Lee Seung-gi also heard insulting and threatening words from his agency representative, etc. We judged that the relationship of trust with CEO Kwon Jin-young could not continue, and after much consideration, we decided to send a certificate of content through a legal representative.”

On the 25th, Hook made a statement and said, “Hook and Lee Seung-gi ended their exclusive contracts in 2021 and when they signed an exclusive contract again, we confirmed the settlement history of both sides and settled the financial debt-debt relationship. We have written an agreement to confirm the content,” he said. “Nevertheless, according to the Lee Seung-gi matter, Hook is once again examining in detail the details of the settlement of the substantial amount of revenue that Hook has paid to Lee Seung-gi with experts,” he said. The agreement between the agencies (revenue distribution ratio, etc.) and the fact that Hook has never paid for Lee Seung-gi’s music is not true.”
