Lee Seung-gi’s battle for music usage fees is also criticizing Lee Sun-hee
Singer and actor Lee Seung-gi and his agency Hook Entertainment are engaged in a mud fight over the settlement of music usage fees. After Lee Seung-gi sent a proof of contents that he had not been paid for music usage fees for 18 years since his debut, Hook Entertainment (Hook) refuted, “It is different from the truth.” In the process, a recording of Hook Kwon Jin-young’s abusive language and abusive language was released, causing a stir, and the arrow of criticism was also focused on Lee Sun-hee, an agency senior who personally selected and raised Lee Seung-gi.
Hook said on the 27th, “It is different from the truth that Lee Seung-ki has never paid for the music.” “When we signed an exclusive contract with Lee Seung-ki last year and signed a (exclusive) contract again, we confirmed the settlement so far and settled the financial bond debt relationship,” he claimed. He added that an agreement was also drawn up to confirm this fact.
Earlier, Lee Seung-gi established a one-man agency, HumanMade, at the end of May 2021, and became independent, but he renewed his exclusive contract with Hook in 10 days, drawing attention.
Hook said, “We are closely reviewing the settlement of a considerable amount of profits paid so far with experts following Lee Seung-gi’s complaint,” adding, “If there is a clear arrangement and wrong handling of work, we will correct it and take responsibility.”
Regarding the proof of contents sent by Lee Seung-ki, a voice file containing abusive language and abusive language from CEO Kwon Jin-young was released, raising the repercussions. He also denied allegations that Lee Sun-hee, who directly selected Lee Seung-gi, was registered as a director and may be related to the incident.
Hook said, “He was listed as a nominal director as a courtesy because he was an artist from the beginning, but Lee Sun-hee was not involved in the company’s management or profit distribution. (Hook) was a single-person company that Kwon owned 100% of the shares from 2006 to last year.”
