OH MY GIRL‘s sign CD for Lovelyz came out on the second-hand market.
On May 25, a sale of OH My GIRL’s signed CD was posted on a second-hand market, along with a message, “I’m selling signed ‘CLOSER’ CD.”
However, the handwritten signed CD seemed to have been given to K-POP girl group Lovelyz as a gift from OH MY GIRL. The writer of the post stressed the CD includes autographs and handwritten messages of OH MY GIRL members.
The attached photos also showed the words of OH MY GIRL left for Lovelyz. It read, “To Lovelyz. Found it! OH MY GIRL! Hello, we’re OH MY GIRL. ‘A-CHU’ is so fresh and cheerful! Please show a lot of love for our new song, ‘CLOSER!’ We’ll always be the hardworking OH MY GIRL.”
In response, Lovelyz’s agency, Woolim Entertainment, stated, “We are informing you of the illegal trading of an item owned by our artists posted online. We recently recognized that signed CD that Lovelyz had received as a gift was being traded on mobile apps, so we checked with business officials and outsourced companies about how the item was leaked. Our artists cherish the item, including CDs that they received as gifts from fellow artists. They will never hand them over to others. We judged the case to be stolen by outsiders and asked the police to investigate the case. We will do our best to check the exact route of the leak and retrieve it as soon as possible. We will take extra care not to repeat such a case in the future.”
