Agency apologizes to its idol singerAfter MBlaq member Lee Joon complained about being worked to the bone, his agency, J Tune, apologized in a press release Wednesday and said it would try to improve working conditions for the singer.
“The posting was indeed made by Lee Joon himself,” said the agency, once and for all confirming the post that was uploaded then deleted on Lee’s official fan site on Tuesday.
In response to his involvement in TV shows, films, recording and overseas promotion, Lee wrote: “Am I a robot? Who am I doing all this for? I think I’ve had about enough” The 24-year-old went on to say he was sick of putting in poor performances in all his work, “because I’m human and I can’t fake it.”
The latter comment seemed to be a stab at the mock-reality show “We Got Married” where he is paired with actress Oh Yeon-seo. Oh recently was found to be dating actor Lee Jang-woo.
As well as owning up to poor management on its part, J Tune announced that it will strive to improve life for Lee “so that he can give 100 percent toward work.”
