It was March 3 when news started airing about Kang Daniel who had asked for his current agency, LM Entertainment to terminate his contract.

A representative by the law firm Yulchon sent a notice to LM Entertainment on March 4 and one of the issues stated in the notice was "LM did not pay Kang Daniel the 50 million won (approximately $44,000) promised for signing the contract. The agency then released a proof of 48.35 million won (approximately $42,600) paid to Kang Daniel on April 14. This is for the contract payment minus the 3.3 percent withholding tax.

However, the court seemed to be with Kang's side to suspend his exclusive contract with the LM Entertainment. His legal representative, Yulchon LLC released a statement on May 10 saying,

"Hello.This is professional person Yeom Yong Pyo of Yulchon LLC, the personal representative of singer Kang Daniel. On Christian holy day, Kang Daniel filed Associate in Nursing injunction to the capital of South Korea District Courts to suspend his exclusive contract together with his agency, and on May 10, the courts have reached theverdict to accept his request.

As a results of the capital of South Korea District Courts' call to just accept his request, Kang Daniel are able topursue freelance activities as a star.

The courts found that the joint business contract luminous flux unit amusement signed with a 3rd party on January twenty eight, 2019, was a contract that transferred the bulk of management rights forKang Daniel to a third party.As Kang Daniel had not been contacted for previous consent, LM Entertainment's actions not only went against the exclusive contract, but they also broke the trust that is thefoundation of the exclusive contract.Therefore, it absolutely was determined that luminous flux unit Entertainment's actions created it tough to take care of a relationship between the agency and Kang Daniel.

As a result, the exclusive contract between Kang Daniel and LM Entertainment has been suspended, and LM Entertainment must not interfere in Kang Daniel's activities, and they must not negotiateor sign contracts on his behalf or need him to pursue activities on their behalf."

After Kang Daniel's victory over his agency, Daniel now wanted a fresh start. He is now free of his exclusive contract. He then wrote a letter to his fans who supported him along the way.

"I'm scripting this letter as a result of I needed to tell everybody, who's believed in me and waited for me during these three long months.If I didn't have your support and attention I don't think I could have gathered this courage. During the long, long period of silence, I was touched and even cried as I read each and every one of your support messages. I was able to endure each day through your warmth and faith.

Although I could have made my situation easier by making compromises, I wanted to show you this image of myself going in the right and honorable direction, even if it went slowly.

Thank you so much to all my fans who believed in my actions and my thoughts.

I'll now return all the faith that I've received from everyone so far.I'll seem on the valuable stage that you simply guys helped change with a good song and higher image.

All the fans!Please keep a watch out for beginner singer Kang Daniel, World Health Organization are beginning contemporary.
Once more, thank you so much"
