On October 28, local media Kukmin Ilbo reported that Minzy had submitted an injection request to suspend her contract with Music Works on September 25. She also reportedly filed a claim of 50 million Won against the agency.
But according to a report by Xportsnews made on December 4th, the court recently rejected Minzy's request. This indicates that Minzy's exclusive contract with Music Works will continue as now.
A source from Music Works also confirmed this. According to agency representatives they will continue to work with Minzy and work together to find agreements and solutions for Minzy's future with Music Works.
This apparently did not make the former 2NE1 member keep silent. Through her Instagram account, Minzy expressed her feelings towards the cancellation of her contract's denial. In the upload, Minzy claimed that she would continue to fight out of Music Works by filing new demands.
"I think I should enter a new legal dispute with my agency that certainly won't be short. When I sign a contract, the agency promises at least four albums a year and promises to provide as much support as possible."
"However, I currently only have one album for the past four years, and they have barely provided support for my activities. I have never been shown an account report only once, and I haven't received a single won."
"More than money, the most important thing for me is to be able to continue to promote as an artist. As a result, I hope to resolve this quickly and settle with the agency or through orders, but that doesn't go well."
"So now I can only take legal action so that the truth is revealed. At least for my fans who always continue to support me, I will handle this with strength. I promise to always show perseverance and confidence both on and off the stage."
After debuting as a member of 2NE1 in 2009, Minzy left YG Entertainment in 2016. She then signed an exclusive contract with Music Works and promoted as a solo artist. (www.onkpop.com)

소속사와 짧지않은 법적 공방을 새로 시작해야 할 것 같습니다. 계약당시 소속사는 저에게 연 4회 이상의 앨범을 약속하며 최대한 지원하겠다고 약속했지만, 지난 4년간 앨범은 1개 뿐이고, 활동도 거의 지원해주지 않았습니다. 정산서는 한 차례도 보여준 적이 없고, 수익금은 1원도 배분하지 않았습니다. 저는 돈 보다는 가수로서 활동을 이어가는 게 무엇보다 중요합니다. 그래서 계약해지를 위해 소속사와 합의하거나 가처분을 통해서라도 신속히 마무리하길 원했지만 여의치가 않아, 이제는 소송을 통해 진실을 가릴 수밖에 없게 되었습니다. 항상 지지하고 응원해주시는 팬들을 위해서라도 의연하게 대처하고 이겨 나가겠습니다. 무대 위에서든 밖에서든 늘 성실하고 당당한 모습은 변함없이 보여드릴 것을 약속합니다.
