SS501’s entertainment company DSP Media is on the list of ” Slave companies”

Within a period of two months from April to May, the Fair Trade Committee carried out investigations on the contracts signed between the 20 companies and their 230 artists and discovered that majority portion of the contracts were extremely unfair to the artists. This includes: the artists must get the company’s permission to go oversea and have to act according to what the company instructed them to do; companies have the authority to amend the contract. even after it was signed by both parties; without their companyfs permission, the artists are not allowed to end their activities; after the contract expires, the artists are not allowed to work in related fields etc. Some contracts even instruct the artists to faithfully report to the company wherever they are. The legal advisor said that these clauses have infringed the artistes’ private life and hopes the investigation is done transparently so as to improve the artistes’ career environment.
