Song Ji Eun Shows Her Support For Sleepy On His Dispute With Their Former Agency TS Entertainment
Former Secret member Song Ji Eun showed her support for rapper Sleepy, who is currently locked in a dispute with TS Entertainment, which is also her former agency.
On September 21, Song Ji Eun shared the cover to Sleepy’s new single “Dispute,” which features B.A.P’s Bang Yong Guk, who left TS Entertainment when his contract with them expired last August. The song’s lyrics were written by Sleepy and Bang Yong Guk and are directly aimed at the agency, with lyrics like “Yo TS Rest in peace,” and “Those who have committed a crime, you must be punished. The media and the public, don’t believe their stories.”
Along with the cover, Song Ji Eun quoted the lyrics “Do the right thing,” and included the hashtags “Sleepy” and “Dispute.”
Song Ji Eun has also been involved in legal disputes with TS Entertainment involving her departure from the agency, as she filed a request to verify the invalidity of her exclusive contract with the agency in August 2017. The agency ended up terminating their contract with her in April of this year but stated that they would be pursuing legal action regarding her signing on with a new agency before the decision was made.
Sleepy terminated his contract with TS Entertainment in August and set up a new agency this month. He had submitted a request to verify the invalidity of his exclusive contract with the agency in April and the two sides came to an agreement in August to end their contract. However, TS Entertainment then accused Sleepy of embezzling funds from the agency, to which Sleepy personally responded and denied the claims, stating that he had been severely mismanaged by the company. He in turn stated that he would be taking steps to be compensated for the damages he incurred while under the agency.
