DSP On The List Of Slave Companies

Credits: MyDaily ---(english translations)

On June 8 afternoon, according to the Korean media, the contract between the entertainment companies and their artists is also called the "slave contract". Although this have been gaining the people's attention and surveillance, abuse does not change and still exist. Recently, the South Korean Fair Trade Committee announced their investigation reports for 20 entertainment companies and found out that almost every company signed unfair contract with their artists. This includes the well known YG Entertainment and DSP Media.

Within a period of two months from April to May, the Fair Trade Committee carried out investigations on the contracts signed between the 20 companies and their 230 artists and discovered that majority portion of the contracts were extremely unfair to the artists. This includes: the artists must get the company's permission to go oversea and have to act according to what the company instructed them to do; companies have the authority to amend the contract. even after it was signed by both parties; without their company�fs permission, the artists are not allowed to end their activities; after the contract expires, the artists are not allowed to work in related fields etc. Some contracts even instruct the artists to faithfully report to the company wherever they are. The legal advisor said that these clauses have infringed the artistes' private life and hopes the investigation is done transparently so as to improve the artistes' career environment.

The 16 companies on the list:
  • IJ entertainment company ��
  • Peace entertainment company ��
  • YG entertainment company �
  • DY entertainment company �
  • barunson entertainment company �
  • HUMANE entertainment company �

DSP on slave compagnies top???
Wed at 4:27pm

I saw this things in others sites!!!
How can you attack DSP (and others compagnies)???!!!
Are you in artists' heart and head to decide for themself if their compagnies do slavery?!
All is right with DSP and SS501 members!
I do not think the state of Kim Hyun Joong is due to too much work ...
But I think too much stress du to his grandmother!!
So please, reconsider the current state of things.
The SS501 would not exist without the DSP...
I don't think too, that te artists have the same opinion as yours...
This is an horrible things that you did!!

The forum's admitrator of said it:

first, they are not slaves but singers.
yes,all the companies in the world do business for gaining money.
even their company(DSP) made(grew up) them for money.
as it is, when SS501 be paid for their labour(one of is money),
DSP get money more than SS501.
(usual is 70(DSP):30(SS501) or 60:40
but this is depend on their famous.
and if singer is new, could be 80:20)
but it is very very very right because
if DSP did not invest, there is no SS501 or something
and also SS501 know about this(include all Korean singer except few singers).
In Korea, sometimes there is something wrong between singer and Co.
but not between SS501 and DSP.
if there is, Korean fans will do something for this.


okay.. it was due to stress? who are they fooling? what do they think of KHJ's fans? stupid? this just made me angry! arrrrgggghhhh..
