The H Entertainment (Kim Hyun Joo's management), stated that:
Kim Hyun Joo unilaterally cancelled her contract in the middle of June.According to SportsChosun, the management have filed a claim to the Seoul Southern District Court for approximately $274,000 USD.
This is what the H Entertainment wrote in the complaint:
we started off as a manager and actress in 2005 and the relationship lead to partnership starting from November of 2009. However, problem between us arose when balancing contracting fees for MBC's "Shiny Shiny Shining", and Kmi Hyun Joo notified us of unilaterally cancelling her contract with us around the middle of June. In ending our partnership, we request approximately $274,000 USD of which she exceedingly received from total profits.Kim Hyun Joo has gained much popularity ever since MBC's "Shiny Shiny Shining" has started airing. She returned to her acting career after one year and six months.
We have no idea why Kim Hyun Joo has decided to part ways with The H Entertainment. The management must have done something wrong that made her cancel her contract. We hope that the two parties will settle things down nicely.
