Welcome to another edition of SB Week in Review. Here’s all the news you might have missed over the past week:
- After spending nearly a decade with YG Entertainment, CL has left the company.
- After a 7-year lawsuit, Park Shi-hoo has been ordered to pay a fine of 370 million to a video production company. Due to allegations of sexual assault, the filming of a movie had to be ceased, for which the production company demanded payment. The court ruled in Park’s favour initially, before an appeal by the production company led to the case ruling in favour of the company.
