Seven-member female idol group GWSN is on the verge of bankruptcy due to agency

The 7-member female idol group GWSN won the first trial in a lawsuit to terminate the exclusive contract with the agency.

On the 22nd, Hankyoreh reported that the girl group GWSN had won the case without any arguments in the first trial of the exclusive contract termination lawsuit with the company.

According to the report, the 28th Civil Division of the Seoul Central District Court ruled in favor of the plaintiff in a lawsuit filed by 7 GWSN members against their agency The Wave Music on the 12th to confirm the non-existence of the exclusive contract.


GWSN is a multinational girl group consisting of Koreans, Taiwanese and Japanese members. However, after a year of debut, they started to have difficulties. When their former company, Kiwi Media, went through corporate reinstatement proceedings, they moved to their current company, The Wave Music, in July 2020 under an agreement.

According to GWSN, the agency has not paid the rent since February 2020, so all the members have been evicted from the accommodation. In July of the same year, the dance practice room was cleaned up, and all the staff and managers of the agency left the company.

They also neglected to apply for visas for Japanese member Miya and Taiwanese member Soso, both of whom were penalized with not only fines but also criminal records for overstaying their visas.


GWSN claimed that “The WAVE MUSIC has neglected care for the members since the last album promotion in June 2021, making it impossible for them to continue working in the entertainment business.”

Meanwhile, the agency did not respond to the lawsuit filed by the members of GWSN for more than 30 days even after receiving the complaint, so the lawsuit ended without an argument. If the agency does not appeal within 14 days of receiving the ruling, the ruling will be finalized and the members of GWSN will be able to work freely.
