Let’s move on to Happy Face Entertainment’s hottest news as a closing. Do you guys remember the survival program, MIXNINE? Well, maybe this will remind you.
MIXNINE is a South Korean survival reality event aired by JTBC. In the program, YG Entertainment founder and producer, Yang Hyun-suk, visited music agencies throughout Korea to look for the new K-pop stars. This program is about a competition between a male team and a female team, and the winning group will debut as idols.
The hot news is that Happy Face sued YG Entertainment for MIXNINE’s failed debut. In June, 2018, Happy Face Entertainment submitted a lawsuit against YG Entertainment for 10 million won (~$9,000 USD). Happy Face claimed that YG Entertainment led the program, JTBC’s MIXNINE, with the influence of being a top 3 entertainment company, but failed to uphold the contractual agreements.
On November 28, 2018, YG Entertainment would face off with Happy Face for the arguments related to the lawsuit filed against YG Entertainment by Happy Face Entertainment for damages, and the proceedings were held at the Seoul Central District Court.
During the proceedings, a representative of Happy Face Entertainment brought up YG Entertainment’s newest survival show YG Treasure Box, as the show has a lot of similarities with MIXNINE, which didn’t end up well.
The court decided that it would proceed with the lawsuit and hold the next date of argument on January 16, 2019. So, what do you think about it guys?
