The East Light’s Lee Seok Cheol And Lee Seung Hyun To Take Legal Action
The East Light’s members Lee Seok Cheol and Lee Seung Hyun will officially file a complaint against the violence that they went through.
On October 22, the brothers’ lawyer stated, “Today at 11 a.m., we (Lawyer Jung Ji Suk from Nam Kang law firm) are going to file a complaint against Producer Moon Young Il and more on the violence case regarding The East Light’s members. The brothers’ father, who is their legal representative, will submit the files while Jung Ji Suk will accompany him.”
Previously on October 18, there were reports about the physical and verbal abuse The East Light’s members received from their producer. Their agency soon released a statement saying that the producer got properly penalized while denying the CEO’s involvement in the case. The members moved on to hold a press conference to provide their own testimony. On October 19, The East Light’s leader Lee Seok Cheol attended the press conference to talk about the case. The agency’s CEO officially apologized, but denied his involvement. However, later that day, JTBC’s “News Room” revealed an audio recording from Lee Seok Cheol that contains the conversation between Lee Seok Cheol and the CEO after he made it known that he was going to go public about the case.
Lee Seok Cheol also revealed more evidence on the violence that affected the members on October 21. CEO Kim Chang Hwan stated that the voice in the audio recording is fake. He said, “The other four members of The East Light will prove that I did not hit the members or just stood by and watched.
