Hours after the first news was dropped about how Kang Daniel wished to terminate his contract with LM Entertainment and how BIGBANG’s Seungri may have been involved in this situation, Kang Daniel has personally confirmed that he is indeed at odds with his agency.
Kang Daniel took to his fancafe to reveal his thoughts on the situation, including how he is sorry to his fans, and how he is currently in a dispute with his agency, LM Entertainment. Read Kang Daniel’s full statement below:
“Hello, this is Kang Daniel.
First, I want to thank my fans who have believed in me and have been waiting for me for a month. I would like to apologize once more for bringing you all news through bad articles.
Just like the articles that were released today, I am currently in a conflict with my agency, LM Entertainment.
I asked my agency to transfer access to my social media accounts to me, so I would be able to provide my fans any updates, as I wasn’t able to let everyone know how I was doing through social media, and I thought my fans would be worried.
I have been waiting and waiting for my agency to honor my repeated requests, so I could show everyone a better side of myself, but my company refused all requests for transferring the social media accounts to me. Also, articles about my conflict with my agency were released today.
After seeing the articles and taking some time to think about it, I also felt very embarrassed due to the many articles that included malicious or groundless information. However, I was also worried about all of my fans, who could be hurt by such false rumors and stories. I’ve taken up the courage to open my new personal Instagram account at 12pm KST tomorrow (March 4).
I have thought long and hard about this decision, and this is my own decision that I am making, purely for myself and my fans.
I miss everyone so much, and I want to be able to stand on the stage again too.
I was able to overcome these difficult times due to the words of encouragement you all gave me, and the memories we have shared all this time. I will do my best so I can stand in front of you all with a good image.
Please believe in me, and wait just a little bit longer.
The truth will all be revealed.
