4 members of LOONA win lawsuit to terminate contracts


On January 13, Seoul Northern District Court first Civil Division ruled that four won and five lost in an injunction filed by nine members of girl group LOONA against their agency Block Berry Creative to suspend the validity of the exclusive contract.

Among LOONA members, Kim Lip, Jin Soul, Choerry, and Hee Jin, won the case and will be able to engage in free activities for now until the results of the ruling are released. On the other hand, Go Won, Yeo Jin, Olivia Hye, Yves, and Ha Seul lost and the contracts will remain the same. ViVi and HyunJin reportedly did not participate in the lawsuit.

Originally, LOONA was scheduled to make a comeback with new album "The Origin Album [0]" on January 3, but they postponed activities in consideration of public opinion regarding the "Chuu's expulsion controversy."

As there have been problems with nine other members following the conflict between Chuu and Block Berry Creative, it has become unclear for the agency to maintain the group LOONA.
