On February 2, Chuu took to her personal Instagram account to address the slandering articles that were released. Read Chuu’s statement below:
Hello this is Chuu.
It’s really tiring and really sad that I have to keep releasing statements over these situations.
Recently, it seems that slanderous articles based on false reports have gone too far. In December 2021, I didn’t even know the company called BY4M that well. It is unbearable that they try to entangle not only me but also the [LOONA] members in lies, so I will sort out my position and respond soon.
Previously 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 based on their claims that Chuu’s actions 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 violated the management contract. BlockBerryCreative confirmed that they 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.
