The Korea Management Federation recently decided to step in to the current legal battle between former Wanna One member Kang Daniel and his agency LM Entertainment.
As a part of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the Korea Management Federation’s role within the South Korean entertainment industry is to ensure that the industry maintains a consistent and fair system for everyone working within the entertainment industry, while also aiming to improve the systems and culture of the K-Pop industry as well.
The organization released an official statement saying that they have been continuously receiving tips that one particular side in the legal battle between Kang Daniel and LM Entertainment has been reported to have been illegally abusing power and taking advantage of the entertainment industry’s system. In addition, the KMF has also expressed that the organization will make sure that the side responsible will be held accountable under the federation’s legal rights.
As it is their role to ensure that artists and their agencies work in a fair environment, the KMF has stated that they will strictly deal with the side that was making distorted claims and unreasonable requests.
However, the KMF has not revealed which side they have suspicions about at the moment, meaning it will take time until fans find out whether it is Kang Daniel or LM Entertainment that is currently being subjected to investigations.
Stay tuned for updates!
