Former TEEN TOP member L.Joe is prohibited from contacting other labels after filing to nullify his contract with TOP Media.
On July 31, CEMA (Korea Entertainment Management Association) stated that the ethics committee has reviewed the dispute and materials submitted by TOP Media and testimony by L.Joe. They noted that this case is important in regards to the issue of exclusive contracts between labels and their artists.
The committee stated, "We have also summoned L.Joe to testify for a fair arbitration. Until the legal matter is resolved, L.Joe will be strictly prohibited from making any contact in addition to signing an exclusive contract with other labels."
