San E’s exit from Brand New Music started after the Isu Station incident, where he posted illegal footage taken from the scene on his social media.
Following this, he released a song called “FEMINIST” where he shared his thoughts on feminism in Korea.
He was “attacked” by two other rappers, through both social media and via a diss track. San E attempted to explain his thoughts on his ideas of feminism and his tracks, but the public still did not accept his reasoning.
Finally, San E took to the stage at Brand New Music’s recent concert, where he attacked feminists. It was so bad, the CEO of Brand New Music, Rhymer, came out on stage to apologize, and apologized again through the media the next day.
San E has also accused news outlets, namely SBS, for witch hunting against him and maliciously editing together clips to make him look like a misogynist.
