The duo TASTY met with their former agency Woollim Entertainment and their parent company SM C&C in court on March 17 at the trial held with regard to the lawsuit filed by the duo against the agency and the company for contract termination.
The attorney who represented the duo, brought in the argument that the contract TASTY had with the agency is invalid as SM C&C has failed to balance accounts and treat the artist fairly. It was further stated that the duo was discriminated comparing to other groups sheltered under the agency and they seek termination of their contract due to these reasons.
In response, SM C&M stated that the claims filed by the duo are meaningless. According to them, the twins had only made a loss to the agency during their promotions and failed to bring in any profit considering what’s been invested in them. They also stated that there’s no wrong in balancing accounts, because it was done accurately according to rules and conditions: thus there’s no valid reason to establish such contract termination.
It seems that the parties are not ready to come to a settlement yet. TASTY is a duo made of twins Soryong and Daeryong who debuted under Woollim Entertainment in 2012. They filed the lawsuit against their agency last year, ceasing all activities in Korea, seeking a contract termination.
