HOOK Entertainment (hereinafter referred to as ‘HOOK’) released an official statement on November 18th, saying “We would like to refer to the media reports about HOOK’s artist Lee Seung Gi sending a content certification to the company”.
They continued, “HOOK has received the content certification from Lee Seung Gi and is reviewing related materials to prepare an answer according to related content.”
The agency added, “HOOK is trying to solve the matter smoothly without any misunderstanding between the two sides”.
Lastly, HOOK said, “We would like to apologize for not being able to express our positions regarding a series of incidents related to HOOK that have been reported on the media one by one”, adding “Due to the seriousness of the issues, it is difficult for us to say anything at this moment. As soon as the situation is settled to some extent, we will announce our official position on related matters”.
Lee Seung Gi recently sent a content certification to HOOK Entertainment in order to check the settlements of profits from his entertainment activities. In addition, actress Youn Yuh Jung reportedly parted ways with the agency on November 17th. As both Lee Seung Gi and Youn Yuh Jung are celebrities who have been with HOOK for a long time, attention is also focused on the agency’s position.
Earlier on November 10th, the National Police Agency’s Serious Crime Investigation Division conducted a seizure and search on HOOK office building in Cheongdam-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul for 5 hours. Many people speculated that the police raid might be related to the companies listed in controversies surrounding Park Min Young’s ex-boyfriend Kang. Some also raised suspicions of some executives of HOOK committing embezzlement.
