NC Soft, Chairman Kim Taek-jin has caught a contract issue with the Universe platform THE BOYZ
NC Soft (Chairman Kim Taek-jin) has once again been under fire for its K-pop application “Universe.”
At 6 p.m. on the 28th, NC Soft announced the end of the contract with boy group “The Boyz” through Universe. This was reported as an announcement titled ‘The Boyz Private Message Service Termination and Planet Usage Guide’.
However, The Boyz said it was not discussed.
IST Entertainment, THE BOYZ’s agency, said in a statement at 7:10 p.m., “The headquarters has continuously asked NCsoft to renew its UNIVERSE contract a month before the end of the contract with THE BOYZ.” However, he replied, “I have not received a clear answer, and I recognized that the notice of ‘end of service’ was uploaded at 6 o’clock today without separate consultation.”
In a subsequent statement, The Boyz clearly said, “The UNIVERSE’s notice of ‘end of service’ is a notice made without prior consultation with the company, and we inform you that we are currently grasping the situation.” 사설토토
The K-pop platform Universe, which launched its service in January 2021, is a service that allows users to enjoy various online and offline fandom activities on mobile.
In particular, through the paid subscription service, fans can watch unique paid content, and experience exchanging messages with celebrities through the “Private Message Service.”
THE BOYZ joined Universe during the pre-booking period in December 2020.
Meanwhile, the K-pop platform Universe, which had many rumors last year, is in charge of development and operation of the “NC Soft Enterprise Office,” and has been downloaded more than 10 million times through the Google App Store.
