ILLIT’s agency BELIFT LAB has announced that they are taking a legal action against ADOR CEO Min Hee Jin.

On May 22, BELIFT LAB released the following statement:

Hello, this is BELIFT LAB.

Today (May 22), we have filed a complaint against CEO Min Hee Jin on the charges of interference with business and defamation for causing harm to our company and our affiliated artists with her unilateral false claims.

We clearly state that the plagiarism allegations raised by Min Hee Jin against our artist ILLIT are not true. We have submitted evidence to the judicial authorities that can prove these allegations are false, and even if this may take some time, we will clarify the truth through proper legal procedures.

The determination of whether intellectual property has been plagiarized should be made based on reasonable standards and procedures, not on unilateral and distorted interpretations. We express our regret that the efforts and achievements of our artists and members are being undermined by indiscriminate speculation and false information.

Furthermore, although this issue is unrelated to ILLIT, the members of ILLIT are suffering from severe malicious comments, ridicule, and personal attacks. We earnestly request that all the indiscriminate insults, malicious slander, spread of false information, and defamatory attacks against our artists to be ceased immediately.

We will do our utmost to protect our artists and members.

Thank you.
