Amid controversy over Lee Seung Gi being treated unfairly by HOOK, netizens mention artists who are under good companies

While Lee Seung Gi’s dispute with HOOK over revenue continues, singers who talked about their good companies drew attention.

Dispatch recently reported that singer-actor Lee Seung Gi, who released numerous hit songs such as “Will You Marry Me”, “Love Taught Me To Drink”, “Losing My Mind”, “White Lie”, “Because You’re My Woman” and “Delete”, did not receive any music revenue from his agency for 18 years.

Shockingly, it is known that Lee Seung Gi had to be self-conscious when eating at work. Lee Seung Gi had to report it to HOOK’s CEO Kwon Jin Young even when he spent 27,000 won for dinner with sandwiches and coffee, and pay for some meals himself. 

While HOOK is at the center of attention as a “bad agency” that treated top star Lee Seung Gi unfairly, netizens listed out “good agencies” that provide expensive meals and delicious food to their artists.
