On February 1, the Korea Entertainment Management Association revealed that LOONA’s agency BlockBerryCreative submitted a petition in December last year, asking for a suspension on Chuu’s entertainment activities.
In their request, BlockBerryCreative reportedly claimed that the actions that Chuu took to sign a new contract with BY4M STUDIO in 2021 is “tampering” (the act of making pre-contact prior to the expiration of the contract period) which is a violation of management contract.
In response, the Reward and Punishment Committee of the Korea Entertainment Management Association requested Chuu’s attendance, and Chuu’s legal representative reportedly expressed their intent on February 1 to attend the committee. The representative explained that the Reward and Punishment Committee requested Chuu’s attendance to confirm the facts regarding BlockBerryCreative’s claims and that they will investigate the case fairly.
Following the reports, a source from BlockBerryCreative confirmed that they had submitted a petition against Chuu and that they will also submit a petition against HeeJin, Kim Lip, JinSoul, and Choerry.
In November last year, BlockBerryCreative announced Chuu’s removal from LOONA, citing “violent language and misuse of power” toward a staff member as their reason. Chuu has since spoken out to personally deny the agency’s claims. It was also reported on January 13 that HeeJin, Kim Lip, JinSoul, and Choerry won their lawsuits against their agency BlockBerryCreative, terminating their contracts.
