The members of OMEGA X have shared a group statement after creating a new Instagram account that is not under the control of their agency in order to explain the situation.
Last month, one of OMEGA X’s fans reported on Twitter that he had seen the CEO of the group’s agency, punching the members after their concert in Los Angeles. In addition, the fan posted an audio recording of the CEO yelling at the group.
The fan’s report drew increasing attention online and others came forward with their own accounts of the CEO’s violent behavior.
SPIRE Entertainment issued a statement claiming that OMEGA X and the agency had “resolved all of their misunderstandings“, and the CEO also denied that any abuse had occurred. Read the group’s statement:
“Hello. We created this small communication space to convey the current situation regarding the issues that have happened to us and to thank the fans who love and support us. According to Spire Entertainment, we have all signed a memorandum stating that we will take civil and criminal responsibility if uploading to SNS without consulting the company.
We ask for your understanding that although we wanted to communicate with the fans as soon as possible, we had to be very cautious.
We have had happy times since our group activities but also had to endure some painful times. When our situation became known to the public, we were worried that what we had achieved so far would be in vain.
But now we have put our fears behind us and decided to be brave.
The eleven members have decided to get back up and not give up on our dreams and take this as our second opportunity. The driving force that allowed us to challenge ourselves and stick to our plans was the fans who waited, believed, and supported us.
It was because of our fans that we were able to survive two years.
Although there were days when we wanted to cry because the agency was mistreating us, remembering our fans’ shouts and reading your messages before going to sleep was the only strength that kept us going.
From now on, we will continue moving forward toward our dreams as we always have. We will stand in front of our fans again with good music and performances.
The eleven members have the same goal, and the fans have the same dreams as us, and it is something that is the most precious to us that we don’t want to lose again.
We apologize for the delay, and we know that many people have been worrying and waiting for us.
Thank you for reading the truth that we took the courage to post.
Thank you. From OX. #오메가엑스 #OMEGAX #PROTECTOMEGAX“
