Migyo Speaks Up About Conflict With Company + Clarifies Misunderstandings Surrounding Music Distributor
Migyo has personally explained the situation surrounding her recent conflict with JG Star Entertainment.
In November of 2018, Migyo sent a certification of contents for the termination of her exclusive contract with JG Star Entertainment, and in response, the company lodged a damage suit against her in February. In addition, Migyo appeared on the April 6 broadcast of KBS’s “Immortal Songs” without consulting her agency, and announced that she will be releasing new music distributed under YG Plus on April 9.
When news of her dispute with JG Star broke, Migyo posted a lengthy message on her Instagram account on April 8 to explain the situation.
Read Migyo’s full statement below:
Hello, this is singer Migyo.
In January of 2018, I signed an exclusive contract with JG Star, and after promoting for a while, I sent a notice for the termination of my exclusive contract through a certification of contents on November 11, 2018, due to the company’s unfair treatment and monetary settlement issues. On December 3, 2018, JG Star sent a certification of contents which stated that my contract would be terminated for breach of contract on my part.
Both JG Star and I have confirmed our intentions to terminate the contract, and despite JGSTAR’s claims, the contract is the not valid due to the contract termination.
As a result, although there are no restrictions in regards to my contract, and there are no problems with my singing career, JG Star is taking issue with my singing career through the media. I’d like to express my regret because my image seems to be tarnished by incomprehensible and inaccurate information.
I would also like to make it clear that I am not in partnership with any company, and the place mentioned in news reports [YG Plus] is just in charge of distributing my music.
Both the company and I have no doubt that the contract has already been terminated, and our problems (such as compensation for damages) from within the contract period are currently in the process of a lawsuit, so I think the court’s ruling should determine the truth.
But it’s heartbreaking and terrible to do this at a place where we were a family together. Even if the agency and I do not have a beautiful ending, I hope we do not progress into bad situations any longer. Thank you.
