Lawsuit Update: Mediation Failed Between FIFTY FIFTY and ATTRAKT – Will It Lead to Their Disband?
Kpop rookie group FIFTY FIFTY has been under the public’s spotlight for several months due to their ongoing lawsuit against the agency, ATTRAKT.
Previously, the Seoul court suggested a more peaceful resolution for the lawsuit between FIFTY FIFTY and ATTRAKT through mediation. However, apparently, the mediation had failed.
Wikitree reported on August 11 that FIFTY FIFTY and ATTRAKT failed to reach an agreement during the mediation process for their ongoing lawsuit. The mediation took place on August 9, overseen by the Civil Conciliation Division 50 of the Seoul Central District Court. In the mediation process, FIFTY FIFTY member Saena and Aran’s mother, as well as ATTRAKT’s board of directors were present, but there were no signs of any FIFTY FIFTY member attending.
Still, after 2 hours of mediation, both sides reportedly failed to reach an agreement. However, ATTRAKT’s representative explained that the court had suggested they meet again on August 16 to have an honest discussion. And ATTRAKT wishes that FIFTY FIFTY members will attend the dialogue to discuss their misunderstandings in person.
“The court suggested that everyone meet by August 16 to clear up any misunderstanding.
We still cannot reach the members yet, but our stance hasn’t changed. We believe that if there’s any confusion about the settlement, for example, we should discuss it back at the company.
If FIFTY FIFTY decides to return, we’ll fully support getting them back to how they were.”
But instead of personally answering ATTRAKT, the latest update revealed FIFTY FIFTY to allegedly make a public appearance on TV. Members of FIFTY FIFTY will reportedly appear on SBS’s program, “Unanswered Questions”.
