Updated July 20 8 p.m. KST:
Cube Entertainment has released an official statement on Lai Kuanlin’s request for contract termination.
Hello, this is Cube Entertainment.
It is true that we received a letter of notification about the termination of our exclusive contract with our artist, Lai Kuanlin, from a legal representative claiming to represent him.
However, nothing has occurred between the agency and Lai Kuanlin to give grounds for contract termination, so we are currently verifying the authenticity of the content in the letter of notification as well as whether Lai Kuanlin’s legal representative has the power of attorney.
As an agency, we have always carried out our duties in ensuring that Lai Kuanlin, ever since his debut, could come into his own as an artist that receives love from the public.
If there is no evidence of problems with the agency, then we will take legal action under due process of law.
Lai Kuanlin has reportedly requested to terminate his contract with Cube Entertainment.
According to an exclusive report by news outlet SPO TV News on July 20, Lai Kuanlin recently filed a certification of contents for the termination of his exclusive contract with Cube Entertainment.
A source from the entertainment industry told SPO TV News that Lai Kuanlin is currently pursuing activities independently after sending the certification of contents.
Cube Entertainment reportedly told the news outlet, “It’s true that we received a certification of contents from Lai Kuanlin. We’ll release an official statement later.”
Lai Kuanlin debuted as a member of Wanna One in 2017 and returned to Cube Entertainment after concluding his activities with the group. He then participated in various activities, including a unit debut with PENTAGON’s Wooseok. He was also cast as the male lead in the Chinese drama “A Little Thing Called Love.”
