Previously, it was reported that LOONA‘s agency Blockberry Creative was facing massive financial difficulties. According to an industry insider, the entertainment company is reportedly facing up to “a million to a hundred million KRW (between $100,000 USD to $1,000,000 USD)” in unpaid fees to external companies, as well as their company staff.
As the sudden news about the group’s label began to make headlines all throughout the nation, LOONA fans began to worry about the girl group’s uncertain future. In an effort to “save” the girl group from the agency’s finance troubles, fans have turned to the richest person in the world — Elon Musk.
According Forbes‘ The World’s Real-Time Billionaires list, Elon Musk is currently sitting at number 1 on the list with a net worth of $202.2 billion dollars, beating Amazon‘s founder Jeff Bezos and Microsoft‘s founder Bill Gates.
In addition to this, LOONA and Elon Musk also have a former “relationship” due to the billionaire’s previous fanship for the girl group. Not only that, but Elon Musk’s former girlfriend Grimes once allegedly confirmed that LOONA’s Gowon was the couple’s child’s godmother, also showing her love for the girl group.
Maybe it’s these brief interactions or maybe it’s because Grimes previously worked on LOONA’s song “love4eva,” but following the news about Blockberry Creative’s financial hardships, LOONA fans have begun to ask Elon Musk to “save” the girl group.
Fans have been replying to Elon Musk’s 2018 tweet that said “Loona”, with this particular fan asking the billionaire to “fund LOONA bestie.”

While these tweets were made in a joking matter, the Blockberry Creative situation has put LOONA fans in an uncomfortable position as they try to figure out what’s next for their favorite girl group.
No updates have been provided regarding the ongoing situation, but we hope that it all gets resolved quickly for both Blockberry Creative and for LOONA.
