Brave Entertainment expressed regret over the judgment of the lawsuit against singer Samuel Kim.
Brave, led by the producer Brave Brothers, said on the 22nd, “The court rejected all of Samuel Kim’s claims about forced work, violation of the duty to cooperate in education and higher education, conclusion of contracts for activities in Japan and China without prior consent, and forgery of private documents. “He said this.
“This means that Brave Entertainment has never forced Samuel Kim to do something he is not obligated to do, that he has not violated his obligation to cooperate in education and higher education, concluded an overseas activity contract without prior consent, and falsified private documents.” did.
He added that the reason for this judgment was “Based on the fact that some settlement data was provided a little late, the trust relationship between the two parties was damaged, so the decision was made to the effect that the termination of the contract is acceptable.”
Brave said, “For an artist who has not generated any profit for many years, we provided tuition, monthly rent, personal exercise, and even expensive clothing support in both material and material ways, and we wanted to go on the road to success together somehow.” Even if there is negligence in providing the data a little bit late, it is very regrettable that it can be judged that the relationship of trust has been damaged to the extent that the previous good faith and efforts have all faded and the contract is terminated in just a few months.”
In addition, regarding the ‘conclusion of a contract for activities in Japan and China without prior consent’ and ‘falsification of private documents’ that Samuel Kim’s side is claiming, “(Samuel’s) mother is proud of her activities in China that she posted on SNS, and now she agrees. To claim that there is no such thing, to be present at the site of signing a contract with the largest agency in Japan, to claim that the company did not agree to the Japanese contract even though many articles were distributed, to claim that the company forged a document signed by itself If you look at it, you will be able to know which side’s claim is true.”
Finally, Brave added, “I would like to receive the court’s judgment once more through the appeals court.”
Previously, Samuel Kim filed a lawsuit to confirm the absence of an exclusive contract in May 2019, citing Brave’s incorrect performance contract and issues related to settlement. The 25th Civil Agreement of the Seoul Central District Court (Chief Judge Lee Gwan-yong) won the judgment in favor of the plaintiff on the 17th.
In addition, the court dismissed the 1 billion won lawsuit filed by Brave against Samuel Kim, saying, “The company suffered damage because Samuel Kim unilaterally refused some schedules without any justifiable reason.”
Meanwhile, Samuel Kim signed an exclusive contract with his agency Brave Entertainment in 2014. In 2017, they debuted as a duo ‘One Punch’, and they made their faces public when they appeared on Mnet’s ‘Produce 101’ Season 2 in 2017. After that, he debuted as a solo singer.
The following is our position on the judgment sentenced in the case of non-existence of the exclusive contract filed by Samuel Kim against the company on the afternoon of the 17th.
The court rejected all of the claims of the plaintiff (hereafter Samuel Kim) as to ‘forced work without obligation’, ‘violation of obligation to cooperate in education and higher education’, ‘conclusion of contract for activities in Japan and China without prior consent’, and ‘falsification of private documents’. excluded. However, based on the fact that some settlement data was provided rather late, the trust relationship between the two parties was damaged, so the decision was made to the effect that the termination of the contract is acceptable.
We have provided tuition, monthly rent, personal exercise, and expensive clothing support for artists who have not generated any profit for several years despite a total investment of over tens of billions of won. We wanted to be together on the road to success. The Brave Girls members, who were together around the same time, were given the same affection and effort, perhaps even more, than the Brave Girls who were brave brothers generously supported and encouraged them to work hard until the end.
Even if the company that gave such generous support was negligent in providing some settlement data a little late, it is very difficult to judge whether the relationship of trust has been compromised enough to terminate the contract in just a few months, as all of the previous goodwill and efforts are fading. I’m sorry.
It is said that she has never agreed to the Chinese activities that her mother boasted about herself by posting on social media. By claiming that they did not, or by claiming that the company forged the documents signed by themselves, it is enough to know which side of the claim is true. Even if you wrote false information that is completely different from the facts, such as “the investigation agency must require submission”, “the court’s order and compulsory measures such as issuing a warrant are scheduled”, “requesting data on behalf of the court and the prosecution” There is no need to explain more about the illegal act of using documents to deceive and use third parties.
We would like to hear the court’s decision once more through an appeals court. Even if it is impossible to persuade the court without distorting the facts as above, I will explain with all my heart with only the facts as they are.
