K-Pop boy group OMEGA X has recently made their long-anticipated comeback.

After 2022 OMEGA X WORLD TOUR [CONNECT: Don’t give up], OMEGA X’s former company Spire Entertainment‘s CEO, Kang Sung Hee, was exposed for physical and verbal abuse as well as sexual harassment against the members. Since then, OMEGA has successfully won their lawsuits and terminated their contracts.

FOR X (OMEGA X fandom) hoped OMEGA X would soon find another agency and make a comeback. Yet, their new agency, IPQ Entertainment, has a sketchy past. The company has produced dozens of erotic films.

There are concerns for their (OMEGA X) image.

Still, OMEGA X has recently released their third mini album, iykyk, on November 7. They also released title track “JUNK FOOD.”

Now, OMEGA X has embarked on their 2023 world tour, OMEGA X CONCERT in US & MEXICO <KEEP GOIN’>. This time, the group is working with promoter Studio PAV.

Those who have attended recent OMEGA X concerts reported that they witnessed Studio PAV manager, Kelly, mistreat both FOR X and OMEGA X members. FOR X claimed that Kelly put her hands on them.

At another stop, FOR X witnessed Kelly allegedly yell at Yechan for him to stop doing heart poses while taking photos. Taedong told another FOR X that he is not allowed to do heart poses.

Studio PAV does not have a good reputation with K-Pop fans. Most recently, Studio PAV was met with criticism due to what many have called the “worst event ever,” KBS‘ Immortal Songs concert.

Some FOR X are having deja vu as the previous tour, 2022 OMEGA X WORLD TOUR [CONNECT: Don’t give up], was “disorganized.” It was also there that FOR X witnessed OMEGA X’s former CEO abusing members.

Guys, I was waiting outside for the Uber Eats that I ordered and I saw the company CEO hitting the members. I really didn’t know what to do since my hands were shaking so much. They were being hit right in front of me but I couldn’t do anything.

CEO: What have you guys done for me? Did you take care of me when I was having a hard time?

CEO: Stop?

Member: [inaudible]… it was right

CEO: Who do you think you are? Who do you think you are?

Member: [A member] is going to faint

CEO: I’ve already fainted before!

*sound of someone falling down*

Member: Oh!

CEO: Get up! Now!

Member: What are you doing?!

*sound of a thud*

*sound of someone crying*

We certainly hope this isn’t a repeat of last year. We wish the best for OMEGA X!
