OMEGA X members have stated that they can no longer be with Spire Entertainment. Their claim is that they’ve repeatedly complained of psychological damages they’re suffering from CEO Kang, but the agency refuses to take action.

On the 22nd of last month, after finishing their concert in Los Angeles, OMEGA X members heard abusive comments from CEO Kang, such as, “I treated you so humanely, but you’ve lost your passion” and “Pay off the debt of 1 billion won (about $7.6 million) you owe the company.” The reason for her anger was that the members failed to “sincerely” read the thank-you note written on the prompter during the concert and did not express their gratitude to her and the agency.

Kang, in addition to threatening the members, tackled Jaehan, who was showing symptoms of panic, to the ground when the group returned to the hotel and proceeded to pound on the doors of the members’ hotel rooms until police arrived. The boys claimed, “Kang’s abuse didn’t just happen during his overseas tour.” One member said, “She called us at dawn even when we weren’t practicing and didn’t hang up for an hour or two. And when we didn’t reply to her texts, she was furious.”

Furthermore, it was revealed that OMEGA X’s agency compelled the members to go on stage while concealing the fact that they had been infected with COVID-19 during their world tour. The two CEOS, Kang and her husband Hwang, knew that four of the OMEGA X members tested positive through a self-diagnosis kit on September 28th, but they forced them to go on a tour the very next day after “steeling themselves mentally.”

Two of the four couldn’t go on stage due to high fever, but the other two even had to perform the rehearsals and were strongly encouraged to perform as many songs as possible.

Currently, the four OMEGA X members are receiving psychiatric treatment for panic, anxiety, and insomnia.

Meanwhile, SBS News has also reported that Spire Entertainment has recently forwarded a statement of accounts to 10 out of 11 OMEGA X members, saying that they owed the company up to 400 million won (about $300,000).
