Cube Responds To Lai Kuanlin’s Legal Reps Regarding Contract Termination Request
Cube Entertainment has commented regarding the statement released by Lai Kuanlin’s legal representatives regarding his request for contract termination.
On July 23, the agency released the following statement:
Hello. This is Cube Entertainment.
First of all, as the agency of Lai Kuanlin, we sent a request to the law firm claiming to be Lai Kuanlin’s legal representatives for evidence of their qualification of representation, but we have not yet received a response. However, there are points in the statement released by Lai Kuanlin’s law firm that are different from the truth, so we would like to reveal the facts below.
There are no grounds for termination according to our contract with Lai Kuanlin. While carrying out Lai Kuanlin’s management duties, we explained and received approval before carrying out any scheduled activities or signing contracts. We received Lai Kuanlin’s approval to sign a contract with a Korean third-party company for the selection of a management company in China that was necessary for Lai Kuanlin’s advancement into China. This third-party company signed a contract with the Chinese company that is in charge of Lai Kuanlin’s Chinese management, and he is promoting in China [through this company].
We provided our full support for Lai Kuanlin with our know-how, network, and an exclusive support team since he was a trainee until he got to this point through his appearance on “Produce 101 [Season 2],” Wanna One activities, and his appearance in Chinese dramas and variety shows recently via the third-party company. We also thoroughly carried out the payment distribution accordingly.
However, as Lai Kuanlin quickly achieves success in China, there is an influential party that is trying to incite Lai Kuanlin and his family to exclude our company and the Korean third-party in order to have sole power of the results of Lai Kuanlin’s success.
Lai Kuanlin is still a minor who is 17 years old (by international reckoning). With concern for the future of our artist Lai Kuanlin, Cube Entertainment has requested a meeting with Lai Kuanlin and his parents. We hope we can have honest conversations to resolve this matter peacefully.
We express apologies for unintentionally causing concern to fans, and we will greet you in the future as an improved [company].
