Former Teen Top member L. Joe is undergoing a contract dispute with TOP Media.
On July 31, the Ethics Committee of CEMA (Korea Entertainment Management Association) stated that it received request for dispute mediation from TOP Media in February. They concluded that since the mutual interests of the two parties are significantly different, L. Joe is banned from making contact with other agencies or signing exclusive contracts until the dispute is settled.
L. Joe’s contract with TOP Media was supposed to end in January of next year, but L. Joe filed for contract termination in February in order to focus on his personal activities. The remaining Teen Top members renewed their contract with TOP Media in December of last year.
