Fantagio To Take Legal Action Against Kang Han Na For Breach Of Contract
Fantagio has announced that they will be taking legal action against actress Kang Han Na.
On July 25, the agency’s side stated, “After signing an exclusive contract with Kang Han Na in 2013, we have been faithfully managing her activities in terms of dramas, movies, advertisements, variety show appearances, and even her promotions in China. But in March of this year, we received from Kang Han Na a notice that contained a one-sided [decision] to terminate her contract. And though we have consistently tried to contact her, she has actually cut off contact [with the agency].”
They continued, saying, “Kang Han Na has been promoting independently for the past four months, even negotiating drama appearances. We have come to the conclusion that this action is clearly a breach of the exclusive contract. Hence, we recently filled out an arbitration application form to the Korean Commercial Arbitration Board and will be taking legal action.”
Fantagio had previously released a statement on the actress working independently from the agency and, at the time, had stated that they were trying their best to get in contact with her.
Currently, there are two years left in Kang Han Na’s exclusive contract, which is supposed to end in 2020. The actress is set to attend the press conference for tvN’s “Familiar Wife,” which takes place on July 25.
