LE SSERAFIM’s Agency Source Music Begins To Eliminate Traces Of Disgraced Kim Garam

As Kim Garam, a former member of LE SSERAFIM, was expelled due to controversy over school violence, the agency began to erase traces.

On the official website of LE SSERAFIM, the member introduction has been changed as of July 20th. Source Music, a subsidiary of HYBE, LE SSERAFIM‘s agency, introduced, “LE SSERAFIM as a girl group composed of 5 multinational members: Sakura, Kim Chaewon, Huh Yunjin, Kazuha, and Hong Eunchae“.

LE SSERAFIM, who debuted as a six-member group including Kim Garam, changed the team introduction with the termination of the exclusive contract in mind.

Changes were also made to some portal site profiles. It introduces LE SSERAFIM, a member of the five-member group, where Kim Garam left the group. One portal site also stated that LE SSERAFIM‘s career was “withdrawal as member Kim Garam“. Kim Garam also changed her profile to a “singer” rather than a member of LE SSERAFIM.

Profiles of other portal sites will be changed after self-examination. When an agency or a celebrity requests a profile application, it usually takes 5 to 7 days.

On July 20th, HYBE announced the termination of Kim Garam‘s exclusive contract. The agency said, “We have decided to terminate the exclusive contract with Kim Garam. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused to fans and many others due to the related controversy“.

This is the aftermath of allegations of sexual assault surrounding Kim Garam.

The allegation of school violence surrounding Kim Garam started in April when the online community revealed about her.

The agency refuted the allegations as “false facts”, but a new phase took place when victim A appointed a legal representative and took an official response.

Due to this, LE SSERAFIM continued their activities as a five-member group except for Kim Garam.
