Big Planet Made was accused of trying to lure EXO‘s Chen, Baekhyun, and Xiumin from SM Entertainment.
According to an exclusive report from Ilgan Sports, SM Entertainment recently sent a certified notice to Big Planet Made, where MC Mong was reported to be an internal director. The accredited information was sent because SM Entertainment found circumstantial evidence that Big Planet Made officials were approaching the three EXO members and trying to get them to sign with their company. SM Entertainment took issue with this as most EXO members already renewed their contracts and resumed their activities.
SM Entertainment responded to Ilgan Sports’ question, “Is it true that you sent a certified letter to Big Planet Made?”

Big Planet Made also responded to Sports Seoul’s report, claiming that MC Mong met the three EXO members as friends.
MC Mong only met his junior colleagues as friends and did not intend to recruit them.
Currently, MC Mong is also not an in-house director for the company.

Big Planet Made is a newer entertainment agency with Park Jang Geun, who made his name known through the producing duo Duble Sidekick as the CEO. They are home to many artists such as VIVIZ, Soyou, Ha Sungwoon, and Huh Gak.
It was revealed that Chen, Baekhyun, and Xiumin sued to terminate their contract with SM Entertainment.
