Posted: Monday January 8, 2018 @ 1:00 a.m PST

The quartet that we’ve always known to be T-ARA may not be called by that name anymore.

T-ARA’s former agency, MBK Entertainment has filed multiple copyrights to the name “T-ARA” as a trademark for their merchandise, performances, music, prints and more for the next 10 years.

They’ve filed for a copyright for nearly every aspect of the entertainment agency, making it virtually impossible for Eunjung, Hyomin, Qri, and Jiyeon to promote under the name T-ARA again.

Even if they re-debut under a new group name, the T-ARA members will have to pay royalty fees to MBK Entertainment should they wish to perform any of their old T-ARA songs.

IU‘s agency has released a statement revealing that they have taken action towards malicious commenters as well as those who are spreading composite photos of the singer.

LOEN Tree officials said on November 19th, “On the 17th, we have filed a complaint against the publishers of the malicious comments and the distributors of the false composite photos (of IU) to the Seoul Gangnam Police Station.”

In 2013, the culprit who spread a malicious rumor about IU was caught but upon an agreement, was given 200 hours of community service and the complaint was dropped. However, LOEN Tree warns that this time around, they will not show leniency towards the culprits this time around.

Earlier this month, a composite photo of IU began spreading but was proven to be photoshop. The photo was originally taken at IU’s fan meeting but was composited as if she was performing in lingerie. The agency has been busy tracking down the original poster since then.

Kim Hyun Joong was accused of hitting his girlfriend last year, causing injuries on her body following violence, to which the court has finalized their summary trials with Kim Hyun Joong being fined.

The controversy over Kim Hyun Joong’s physical offense towards his girlfriend was reported back in May 30, 2014, and on January 19, 2015, the court has settled the case, demanding the actor and singer to pay approximately 5 million won ($4,617 USD).

The prosecutors stated that, “Mr. Kim had shared his opinion on the case by saying that, ‘there was no intention of hurting her, the only purpose was to perform martial arts and in the process she was hurt.’ However, it was obvious that simple physical violence is the only cause. Therefore, accusations of physical violence and injuries caused were applied to his case. There had been a mutual agreement between the offender and the victim and Mr. Kim had sent in a written file of apology. For such reasons and the situation, we’ve decided to go through a summary trial.”

Kim Hyun Joong had injured his girlfriend and left bruises during the first incident at his apartment in Seoul. The injury took two weeks to heal, according to the doctor.

During the other case on July 12th, he told her that he was trying out martial arts; Kim Hyun Joong strangled his girlfriend’s waist and caused injuries such as broken ribs took six weeks to heal. He was later charged following this event.

The victim had stated that the two have dated since the year 2012, and was offended physically in May and continued until July in total of four events.

The victim cancelled her accusations for the other two events. However, the police forwarded the previously mentioned events to the prosecution with physical violence charges.

Kris (Wu Yifan) Former EXO Unable To Find a New Entertainment Company

Former EXO member Kris has yet to sign with any label or agency contracts after leaving the group and pursuing his career in China, despite approaching some of the largest Chinese entertainment companies.Industry officials estimate that Luhan, who also recently filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment for the nullification of his contract, will also face similar obstacles as Kris.

It has been five months since Kris filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment and left to China. However, Kris is currently unable to find a new entertainment company.

According to Chinese industry officials, Kris first approached YUEHUA Entertainment, one of the top entertainment company in China, but was rejected when trying to land a contract. Kris later also met with Huayi Entertainment, but it seems that it wasn’t easy for him to get a contract. It seems that even the large companies, having the ability and power to shed Kris’s image as a “deserter” and make him a star, are hesitant in signing with him.

Because China doesn’t have South Korea’s idol developing and marketing system, China’s few large corporate like entertainment companies have a great deal of influence and power in the industry. But it seems that the two largest companies’ decisions not to sign with Kris will be a bump on the road for him in chasing the dream to become the “second Hangeng”. Former Super Junior member Hangeng (Hankyung) has reached the peak of his stardom in China after filing the same lawsuit against SM Entertainment back in 2009.
