After seeing a recent broadcast featuring 9MUSES‘s Kyungri, netizens became upset with her company’s CEO.
On the show, the 9MUSES member revealed that the CEO of her agency Star Empire Entertainment always ignores her greetings when she meets him, to the surprise of viewers. The singer further revealed the strange level of favoritism in the company by adding that the CEO Shin Joo Hak doesn’t do the same to her label mates Kwanghee, Siwan, and Hyungshik, and that on one occasion he even gifted Kwanghee with a bag. Upon hearing this, many netizens expressed pity for Kyungri and lamented on the importance of success and popularity to idols.

[+ 1029, – 16] If this is real the guy has no right to be a CEO~~!!
[+ 912, – 11] Even in university some seniors would make a big deal about greeting them and once you do just ignore you and walk by…..I hate those people that CEO probably has a bad personality too
[+ 837, – 11] I know people say idol agencies are bad but seriously they’re all better than this company. Even during Jewelry and VOS days there was so much trouble. He even slapped a 9muses member and punished ZE:A during their trainee days and even slapped the leader’s face.
[+ 74, – 5] Now I can understand why Kwanghee was so desperate to join Infinite Challenge. The CEO only treats you like a human being if you’re popular. He must have been so stressed out when the CEO only cared for Siwan and Hyungsik. This is seriously a problem with the agency.
