In November last year, B.A.P filed a lawsuit against TS Entertainment for an invalid contract, calling it a “slave contract” because it was apparently designed to benefit only the agency and was severely disadvantageous to the K-Pop idol boy group members.
The lawsuit has, of course, reminded us about the previous lawsuits that were filed by other idol group members including former EXO members Kris and Luhan as well as JYJ, the original members of TVXQ.
B.A.P’s lawsuit marks the first lawsuit that every member of the group have agreed to file, making fans believe that the company has breached a rule in the contract. However, the talent agency denied the claims and “counter-attacked” by releasing an official statement to explain about the contracts that the members signed.
Since that incident, the B.A.P members have laid low by stopping all promotions. They have also opened up their own fan cafe to communicate with and update fans who supported them through tough times.
On top of that, it was reported just a few days ago that B.A.P will finally be getting their first chance at retaliating against TS Entertainment as the first court trial date has been set for 13th March. This is because both parties weren’t able to come to a peaceful and amicable agreement, hence the court trial.
We’ll leave you now with B.A.P’s last Korean single prior to the lawsuit, titled, “Where Are You? What Are You Doing?” from their album, “B.A.P Unplugged 2014”. Listen:
