The East Light Member To Hold Press Conference And Provide Testimony Of Abuse From Agency
The East Light will be holding a press conference to open up about the recent reports of abuse.
On October 18, it was reported by Xportsnews that members of The East Light had suffered from verbal abuse from Media Line Entertainment CEO Kim Chang Hwan and physical abuse by producer “A” since 2015.
The agency later released an official statement addressing the issue. According to the statement, the agency became aware of the physical abuse by the producer in 2017, and the situation was resolved with a promise to never let it happen again. They also stated that the producer in question had handed in his resignation to take full responsibility of his actions, and they denied that CEO Kim Chang Hwan had “instigated or abetted any acts of violence.”
A legal representative of The East Light has since released an official statement announcing that a press conference will be held on October 19 to address the initial reports of abuse from both the producer and the agency’s CEO. The lawyer stated, “Member ‘B’ [from The East Light] will personally attend the press conference to give his own testimony about the abuse. He will also provide relevant evidence and answer questions from the press.”
