We demand a formal apology to Lee Seung Gi, completion of the music revenue settlement for Lee Seung Gi’s singing career, termination of the exclusive contract with Lee Stung Gi for breach of duties by the agency, adherence to business ethics as the company’s entertainment manager, and an end to threats and slander against Lee Seung Gi “.
