Singer MoonMoon Revealed To Have Been On Probation For Hidden Camera Crime + Agency Ends Contract
On May 25, singer MoonMoon was reported to be currently on probation for secretly filming a woman.
On May 24, according to a media source, MoonMoon was exposed after being caught secretly filming a woman in a public unisex bathroom in Gangnam on August 2016. The victim reported him to the police, and after MoonMoon partly admitted to the charges during police investigations, he was sentenced to a two-year probation.
MoonMoon’s agency House of Music, a new label under Starship Entertainment, decided to end their exclusive contract with the singer and cancel all his upcoming schedules. When MoonMoon signed with House of Music in November 2017, he did not disclose his criminal records and the agency had remained unaware of the situation until now.
The agency’s full statement is as follows:
“Hello, this is House of Music.
“We apologize for concerning many of you regarding the disgraceful reports of MoonMoon on May 25.
“The case took place before we signed exclusively with MoonMoon and we were unaware of the situation. As soon as we confirmed the facts, we ended the exclusive contract and canceled all schedules.
“We decided to terminate the exclusive contract based on the judgements that the said case would have a great social impact, and that our mutual trust in communicating with the artist cannot be maintained.
“Once again, we are deeply sorry for worrying everyone.”
MoonMoon debuted in July 2016 with his single “Moon, Moon.” “Contrail,” the title track of his first mini album, is his most successful song yet, having taken top spots in music charts including Genie and Olleh.
