10 OCTOBER: In response to speculation regarding the BLANC & ECLARE corporate structure, capital investor Tyler Kwon responds on behalf of the Company's Board of Directors: 

"BLANC & ECLARE is a privately owned company. Founder Jessica Jung took the helm as Head Designer and sought support from Coridel Capital Partners, the only other party providing investment capital to the Company, to support the Founder's goals and ambitions. To date, the Company and its Board of Directors have not approached any other outside equity investors and there are no plans for the debt-free Company to do so in the near future. We have tremendous confidence and remain fully committed to the BLANC & ECLARE team that continues to be focused on and executing its global strategic vision."

To get the gist out of it, Tyler Kwon makes clear that only his company is investing to Jessica's fashion line and will not seek any further investor in the future. He also stated that there's no plan of pulling back and confident enough to continue their business partnership.

SM Entertainment releases official statement about Luhan's lawsuit

Posted: 09 Oct 2014 10:42 PM PDT

Earlier today EXO-M's Luhan was reported to have filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment to terminate his contract. Now the agency has come out with an official statement regarding the issue.

Here comes the statement,

"We learned of Luhan's lawsuit through the law firm today.

We are puzzled because of the sudden lawsuit while we were in the process of dicussing about his future plans after he expressed his wish to focus more on his individual activities in China rather than EXO group promotions due to to his health issues.

However, it's similar to Kris's case seeing how he filed a lawsuit without any reason by using the same law firm and manner after gaining popularity through group activities, we think that this is a case when one is prioritizing his own benefit and ignoring the understading of the contract with the company as well as all the relevant parties. We are suspicious about there is someone pulling the string behind the scene.

Regarding this situation, we are planning to actively take action with overseas partners including those in China and legal experts.

EXO will still proceed with their schedules as planned"

He admitted, "I have no idea that M.I.B wouldn't be successful for this long.It's the 4th year since we've debuted already and we've released seven albums yet we didn't gain success. I really owe a huge debt to our company."

When asked what could be the reason of not gaining success, Kangnam answered, "Our music might not be good. If we compare to EXO, they are really cool. We must do better stages but we are not dancing. We just do rapping and singing but no dancing so it's quite lacking."

Meanwhile, Kangnam is a mixed blood with Japanese father and Korean mother. He's getting attention after appearing in JTBC's 'Off To School' and MBC's I Live Alone." He has also new projects in line for JTBC new program 'Inside Story Salon' as host and will join as new member of 'MBC's 'Hello Stranger' with Fuji Mina.
