REVISED ARTICLE BELOW: 

Group CNBLUE's agency, FNC Entertainment, recently issued a public apology for the matter involving CNBLUE and Crying Nut.

Yesterday, CNBLUE's agency FNC Entertaiment posted on their website, "We apologize for the heated issue regarding CNBLUE recently. We had not been aware of such a thing happening under the chaotic atmosphere of live airing, and we accept that it was the agency's fault for sending CNBLUE on stage without verifying audio files due to the urgent nature of live airing"

They continued, "It was also unfortunate that we had not thought ahead for the possibility of a DVD publication.  We were not fully informed of the commercial situation, and we didn't participate in the DVD production.  Nonetheless, we sincerely apologize to Crying Nut for causing them trouble in this matter"

CNBLUE performed the disputed song in the 2010 Mnet "M! Countdown" with the song 'Deadly Offside' playing in the background. Crying Nut recently sued CNBLUE for using their song.  Crying Nut also sued MNET but the media company has already taken accountability and has settled with Drug Records (Crying Nut's agency). Hence, the indie group's agency has taken FNC and CNBLUE to court, wanting them to also be accountable for the alleged copyright infringement.
