Earlier, Warner Music Korea was reported to have proposed a 20-billion-won buyout to The Givers during the dispute between FIFTY FIFTY members, Attrakt and The Givers. In this regard, both Warner Music Korea and The Givers refuted it, saying “The rumor is groundless”.

Meanwhile, FIFTY FIFTY filed an injunction against Attrakt to suspend their exclusive contract and the lawsuit is still ongoing. In the process, Attrakt accused The Givers CEO Ahn Sung Il, who produced FIFTY FIFTY’s hit song “Cupid” of being the external force that caused the dispute. However, Ahn Sung Il denied the allegation.

In the end, Attrakt sued three individuals, including CEO Ahn Sung Il, on charges of fraud and breach of duty. In addition, Attrakt later filed an additional complaint for charges of embezzlement and forgery of documents.
