Singer Lee Seon-hee (pictured above) recently sparked controversy over whether or not she is in an economic partnership with her current agency, Hook Entertainment CEO Kwon Jin-young.
On the 26th, entertainment media Dispatch reported that Hook signed a vocal training contract with One Entertainment, where Lee Seon-hee served as CEO, and paid 50 million won a month, or 4.3 billion won for about 10 years.
According to the report, it was said that about 4.3 billion won flowed from Hook to One Enter in the name of Lee Sun-hee teaching the songs of entertainers and trainees belonging to Hook.
It wasn’t just this that was suspicious. Lee Seon-hee sent some of her 4.3 billion to Hook, claiming that “Lee Seon-hee played the role of Kwon Jin-young’s personal pocket.”
In addition, it was said that Lee Seon-hee hired her younger sister and Kwon’s father and mother as full-time workers at One Enter and paid them a total of 900 million won in the name of wages and bonuses for about 8 years.
Mr. Kwon and his alumni raised the suspicion that they were a so-called ‘economic community’, claiming that they took tens of millions of won in the name of planning expenses for Lee Sun-hee’s performance.
Previously, on the 25th, Lee Seon-hee was summoned to the National Police Agency’s National Investigation Headquarters (noodle version) Severe Crime Investigation Department and was investigated for about 12 hours.
The police said that they asked whether Lee Seon-hee had falsely listed employees in the entertainment company One Enter, where she served as CEO, and whether the funds were misappropriated in an unfair way. In response, Lee Seon-hee is known to have completely denied allegations of her embezzlement to the effect that she was not involved in management.
In response, Hook Entertainment said on the same day, “A police investigation was conducted in relation to the company where Lee Seon-hee was the CEO. Lee Seon-hee will diligently participate in the investigation and actively explain the facts related to her,” she said in an official position, “I ask that you do not defame the artist by disparaging the artist with unverified content.” .
One Entertainment is a private company established by Mr. Lee in 2013, and is currently in a state of liquidation. Mr. Lee’s daughter, Mr. Yoon, and Mr. Lee’s agency representative, Kwon Jin-young, were listed as inside directors of the company. The two stepped down from their positions in 2019 and last year, respectively.
