ATTRAKT dropped a bombshell announcement today that they’re officially severing ties with three members of FIFTY FIFTY—Aran, Sio, and Saena. However, Keena will continue on as an ATTRAKT artist.
“On the 23rd, we officially terminated the exclusive contracts with FIFTY FIFTY members Aran, Sio, and Saena,” ATTRAKT stated. The agency had already sent official notices to the trio’s residences on the 19th, outlining the termination of their contracts.
The agency didn’t shy away from disclosing the reason for the split, alleging a conspiracy involving Aran, Sio, Saena, and the company The Givers led by Ahn Sung Il. Earlier, Dispatch had reported that the members used Ahn’s COVID-19 test kits to leave the group’s dorm without permission.
“The three had intentionally absconded from the agency, slandered us, and inflicted damage to our reputation. To date, there has been no rectification for these contract violations,” ATTRAKT stressed.
Amidst the upheaval, Keena has returned to the agency fold. Last week, Keena met with ATTRAKT’s CEO Jeon Hong Jun to extend an apology. Keena also penned handwritten letters to express remorse to the staff. “Keena has been trying to set things right by persuading the other members since July. And now, having returned to the agency, she has bravely revealed the truth,” ATTRAKT conveyed, showing appreciation for Keena’s actions.
