We're in a discussion with Kim Tae Dong and in the process of resolving the issue."

JBJs Kim Tae Dong Requests Termination Of Contract With Agency, The Vibe Label Responds

According to a recent report by Ilgan Sports, former “Produce 101 Season 2” contestant Kim Tae Dong — who is a part of the group JBJ, a fan-imagined group consisting of “Produce 101” members who did not make the final 11 on the show — suddenly became unreachable and sent a certification of contents to his agency, The Vibe Label, requesting termination of his contract.

Because Kim Tae Dong is signed with The Vibe Label as an artist, not a trainee, there are possible legal ramifications for sudden termination of the contract. However, The Vibe Label has expressed that they are seeking an amiable resolution. On July 27, a source from the agency said, “It is true that we have received a certification of contents from Kim Tae Dong after he became unreachable. He seems he sent it because there are things that have made him upset with the agency, and we are doing everything we can to seek a peaceful resolution. We are working toward resolving the situation so that it does not affect JBJ’s promotions.”

The Vibe Label and 'Produce 101' trainee Kim Tae Dong are continuing to make conflicting statements.

Previously, Kim Tae Dong had accused his label of mistreating him to the point he had suffered. One of the accusations he made was that his manager would drop him off at a bridge in Han River at the middle of the night after practice, and he would have to find his way home by a taxi. By taxi, it would take him 1 hour to reach where he was living by himself, and 3 hours to go back home to his family.
