Core Contents Media sued for cancelling ‘K-Pop Power & Beauty’ concert in San Francisco
Core Contents Media, home to artists like T-ara, Davichi, Yangpa, and more, has found themselves in the middle of a lawsuit.
You may remember the ‘K-pop Power & Beauty’ concert that was scheduled to take place back in January of this year in San Francisco, California. The concert, which would have featured T-ara, Davichi, and Yangpa, was unfortunately postponed due to Visa issues, and later cancelled. Due to the cancellations, concert organizer, Namu Entertainment, has submitted a lawsuit against Core Contents Media.
On April 5th, Namu Entertainment sued Core Contents Media and First Creative Company for 390 million Won (~ $344,974 USD) as compensation for damages, at the Seoul District Court.
Namu Entertainment stated, “We had contracted a San Francisco concert featuring T-ara, Davichi, and Yangpa with Core Contents Media… However, with the excuse that they were unable to obtain the visas necessary, they cancelled the event with four days left til the concert.”
They continued, “With the concert being suddenly cancelled, we have suffered great damage, such as losing the trust of those within the industry.”
Core Contents Media fired back, “Preparations such as obtaining Visas were something that Namu Entertainment should have taken care of… We cannot comprehend why they have submitted a lawsuit against us when it was them who didn’t do their job properly.”
The agency further revealed, “We are currently obtaining related documents to counter-sue.”
