Lee Jin Hyuk To Participate In UP10TION’s Fan Meeting Event
UP10TION has been promoting as an 8-member group without the two members, Lee Jin Hyuk and Kim Woo Seok, who appeared as contestants on Mnet’s “Produce X 101.”
On December 18, it was announced on UP10TION’s official Japanese site that Lee Jin Hyuk would be taking part in the group’s upcoming fan meeting event for Japanese fans in February 2020.
The following day, TOP Media released the following statement:
Hello. This is TOP Media.
The “2020 UP10TION FANMEETING in SEOUL Sweet Valentine Day” is an event that will be carried out based on the “Lotte Hotel model contract” that was signed when UP10TION was promoting with nine members.
The eight members, Jinhoo, Kuhn, Kogyeol, Bitto, Sunyoul, Gyujin, Hwanhee, and Xiao, who are promoting with the group, as well as Lee Jin Hyuk, who is promoting solo, will be taking part in the event.
The attendance of the nine members as well as the details of the event are based on the contract.
While the UP10TION members are currently promoting separately as a group and as a solo artist, we could not push back the event further. We are carrying out the event after sufficient discussion with the members, and fulfilling a contract that was mutually agreed upon is a way to avoid damaging the artists’ reputation, so we ask fans for their understanding.
For the time being, the eight members of UP10TION will continue promoting as a group, and Lee Jin Hyuk will continue to promote solo.
We will carefully listen to your opinions, do our best for our artists’ activities, and continue to actively take measures against malicious rumors to protect our artists. Thank you.
