(NEW) 140922 Lee Hoo Twitter Update


To cap whats happening, Lee Hoo is taking over power of Star Empire Entertainment and will continue to expose the injustices of the industry. He is asking that you stay tuned and keep supporting ZE:A and himself!

"I finished speaking with PresidentShin Joo Hak, It has been decided that Star Empire will be operated by me, by us, as a ZE:A company. I promised all of you that ZE:A’s Day will be coming, I said I will either knock it down or absorb it … now is the time for you to protect us.. But the truth is…”

"Lastly, President Shin Joo Hak who lost everything and was left with empty pockets… I still deplore and hate you but you were our President for 8 years. You were my responsibility and.. that responsibility.. I’ll take the shaming from the public and the fans. Myself and President Shin Joo Hak will take the responsibility. The contract has been flipped, we now receive 7 to every 3 for the President."

 "What I want to say is, with this incident, I know that many other agency presidents are having problems with contracts. I will close my mouth so please fix the problem and treat your artists better. I will make this last request politely. If they can hear my heart .."

"We will start fresh from the very beginning.. put everything down and consider it my baby.. I humbly request that you do it one more time."

"And to everyone, the fans, the reporters, who helped us.. thank you. Thank you so much for revealing our truth. To everyone reading this… in the name of ZE:A, the singers, the actors, the dancers, the variety people, and in the name of our seniors, friends, juniors and all of the artists… putting ZE:A and my name, Lee Hoo, on the line, I wanted to tell you that we will live bravely."


ZE:A Lee Hoo


I’m actually pretty sad by the fact I haven’t seen this on my dash more than once. Everyone seems to be ignorant of the situation, or has chosen to ignore it. Yet, if it were an EXO member doing this, a kpop blogger’s dash would be exploding with news, support, and awareness. But because this is a group that is small, is not as big as other groups, and there are little translators for them, most of us don’t even know what’s going on.

ZE:A’s leader, Lee Hoo (Junyoung) is tweeting and revealing the corruptions of his company and the truth of the entertainment industry. Guys, there is actually someone, who is already in a group, finally taking a direct stand towards their shitty company. He is slowly revealing the poor treatment on his members and himself, his cruel CEO that has abused them, and their money situation. While AllKpop isn’t the best site, at least there are clear translations of his tweets here. Also here. Lee Hoo left to meet with his CEO and settle matters.

We’re all aware of the cruelty of the kpop industry. We all know of SM’s infamous treatment to their employees. ZE:A’s company is a small company. Imagine how big companies are, with more money to use to cover stories. Lee Hoo has revealed their money arrangement was 70:30. 70% for the company, 30% for them. If the group earns one million KRW, the CEO takes 700,000, and ZE:A takes 300,000. Thing is, ZE:A has nine members. They have to split the 300,000 over and over to the nine members. EXO has twelve members. Super Junior has more. Even if they make more money, they still have the split the money, give most of it to the company, and work even harder to get more. There’s a reason why Hangeng and Kris left (actually, one reason out of many).

"They signed up for this! They should suck it up!" "They make plenty of money, they’re just greedy." "There’s no proof that the company actually abuses them." I can’t tell you how much I’m frustrated by these words. Look! A k-pop member is exposing it all on his official SNS. How much more proof do you need? Lee Hoo even says that after they sign the contract, they are made aware of the money deal. He has had to lie to the public about how he broke his leg to save face for a program. 

They can’t say anything. They have to swallow their words, put on a flashy act for the public, and deal with the internal systems of the k-pop industry. EXO Lay has said this isn’t what he expected. Kris left under cruel and unfair treatment. The 9muses documentary showed us angering treatment toward the girls. Finally, someone is actually taking a direct, public stand.

From his latest tweet, he has come back now, and while I’m not sure of the correct translation, it seems he is winning, perhaps got the company under ZE:A? Please just make yourself aware, get #standbyzea trending, and celebrate your idols’ birthday while rooting for ZE:A :)
