It is reported that OMEGA X booked a flight to Korea with its own money + security approached CEO Kang
Following the release of a video showing Spire Entertainment CEO Kang verbally and physically abusing OMEGA X members in Los Angeles, SBS News media released an exclusive report that contains additional information about the company’s official and K-pop idols.
On October 25, SBS News reported that OMEGA X booked a return flight to Korea with their own money and without financial support from their agency. They added that all 11 band members and one agency manager in charge of the overseas tour boarded a flight to Korea from Los Angeles on the 24th.
The media also stated that some participants, with the help of their parents in Korea, were able to buy a plane ticket to return home.
OMEGA X had previously planned to fly out of Los Angeles on the 23rd after completing its overseas concert as part of its first-ever “CONNECT: Don’t Give Up” world tour, but the flight was abruptly canceled due to allegations of abuse.
While they remained in the United States, Spire Entertainment employees who accompanied them throughout the world tour boarded a plane to return to Korea.
In a statement, CEO Kang told SBS News that the cancellation of the male group’s flight was scheduled a few days ago due to the fact that “fans were flying on the same flight” as the artists.
Now SBS News has revealed more information about what happened after the cancellation of the OMEGA X return flight to Korea. The media reported that CEO Kang continued to cause unrest among the participants.
SBS reported that Kang was approached by hotel security guards to prevent her from making a fuss in the hotel corridor, constantly knocking on the doors of hotel rooms where the idols stayed. The media also noted that they belatedly learned that the local police came to the hotel twice.
At the time of publication, neither Spire Entertainment nor CEO Kang had responded to the new information published by SBS News.
Meanwhile, OMEGA X is expected to arrive at Incheon International Airport today, October 25, and reveal its position on the situation.
