In this regard, Shim Jae-hyup, CEO of Simtong Entertainment said, “If content produced by a small agency with enormous investment costs goes wrong, it is a reality that the company itself faces a crisis of existence. Also, it is out of common sense to want to terminate the contract unilaterally without any responsibility. I will go to lawsuit according to legal procedures,” he said.
