South Korean singer Minzy has expressed her frustration over the verdict of her legal battle with her agency Music Works on her Instagram handle on Wednesday. This comes after the Seoul Central District Court denied her request to nullify her contract with Music Works.

On Instagram, Minzy wrote that she will begin a new legal dispute with the company though it would be a long and arduous one. She stated that the contract promised her at least 4 albums in a year as well as full support toward the promotion but in the past 4 years only one album has been promoted. "They've barely supported me in any activities. I've never once laid eyes on documentation of earnings, and they have not paid me a single penny," she wrote in her post.

She, however, said that the most important thing to her is to continue her career as a singer, and not the money. This is precisely why the singer said she wanted to nullify the contract and reach some sort of settlement with the company or end it as soon as possible through the court's mediation. However, "it did not work out that way and so I have no choice but to file a lawsuit and unveil the truth through legal procedures," she said.

At the end she wrote, "I will fight through this for my fans who are always supporting me and cheering me on. I promise to show you an honest and earnest individual, whether on stage or off stage."

In September, Minzy had filed a request to nullify her contract with Music Works, and also asked for 50 million KRW as contract termination fees. However, on Wednesday, the court declared that Minzy's contract is still valid with Music Works and denied to entertain her request.

On its part, Music Works maintained that the contract termination was denied by the court but it is open to discuss with the singer about her future activities. A company representative told Xsports News: "It is true that [Minzy's] contract termination request has been rejected. We plan to discuss her future activities favorably."

After leaving YG Entertainment, Minzy signed with Music Works as a solo artist in April 2016.

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.
