Kpop Group FIFTY FIFTY Shares Shocking Revelation Amid Lawsuit Before Keena Returns
News and update of Kpop group FIFTY FIFTY member Keena and her return to the agency has been circulating on social media. But what the public mostly didn’t know was the fact that members of FIFTY FIFTY previously revealed long and shocking revelations about their ongoing lawsuit with ATTRAKT.
On October 13, FIFTY FIFTY posted a long disclosure on their new Instagram account. The post revealed their side of the story about the ongoing lawsuit with ATTRAKT. It also featured details of all the alleged abuse and unfair treatment FIFTY FIFTY members had endured during their time in the company as well as their perspective on ATTRAKT CEO’s statement.
Alleged Severe Neglect from the Company
FIFTY FIFTY’s fan Twitter account, @hunniesunited, revealed a translated version of the long disclosure on the same day.
According to FIFTY FIFTY members, during their time with ATTRAKT, they suffered severe medical conditions. The condition included seizures from panic disorder, fainting on the street, and chronic inflammation due to delayed surgery.
Member Saena experienced hormonal changes; she didn’t get her period without medication after 39 kgs (85.98 pounds) of weight loss. At the same time, Sio suffered from severe panic disorder and social phobia that she once woke up on a respirator due to the extreme diet. Meanwhile, Aran’s surgery got delayed. And even after her condition worsened when she eventually got the surgery, ATTRAKT allegedly pushed her to continue promoting while recovering.
Although the revelation shocked the public, FIFTY FIFTY’s fans, known as Hunnies, were already aware and had previously declared a boycott against ATTRAKT..

However, a while after their long and shocking exposure, FIFTY FIFTY members reportedly experienced unexpected internal discord. As a result, one of FIFTY FIFTY members, Keena, decided to return to the company, while the remaining 3 members continued their lawsuit.
What Happened to FIFTY FIFTY Members: Tragic News and Update on the Lawsuit
A few days after the long and shocking social media exposure, Kpop group FIFTY FIFTY lawsuit took an unexpected turn with tragic news and update. Apparently, FIFTY FIFTY Keena decided to change her legal representative and withdraw the lawsuit.
SPOTV News reported on October 16 that FIFTY FIFTY Keena changed her representative law firm from Barun to Shinwon Law Firms. Then, FIFTY FIFTY Keena submitted a withdrawal of the lawsuit with her new lawyer and announced that she would return to the agency, ATTRAKT.
The Korean media outlet initially reported that all FIFTY FIFTY members would withdraw their lawsuit. However, law firm of the remaining members, Barun, clarified that only Keena withdrew the lawsuit. The remaining members of the Kpop group FIFTY FIFTY would continue suing the agency.
While some Kpop enthusiasts felt relief from this unexpected twist, this news and update of FIFTY FIFTY lawsuit felt tragic for the remaining members.
After taking a dive from the world’s most famous Kpop rookie to an ungrateful idol group, FIFTY FIFTY members originally seemed firm and united to fight ATTRAKT. Even after all their bright opportunities got canceled and among the disbandment possibilities, FIFTY FIFTY members insisted to continue fighting ATTRAKT, and they even refused the peaceful mediation approach.
However, all the long and painful battles have now taken a tragic twist as Keena decides to drop everything and return. What really happened beyond the seemingly united members of the Kpop group members?
Possible Internal Discord: Will the Kpop Group Eventually Disband?
So, does this tragic turn of events mean an internal discord between FIFTY FIFTY members? And will the remaining FIFTY FIFTY members eventually disband?
As of today, there has been any official statement from both Keena and the remaining members’ sides. However, one might notice that throughout the long battle, Keena hasn’t been as actively involved as the remaining members.
Previously, during the failed mediation, the mothers of members Saena and Aran were the ones attending the meeting. And on the recent exposure FIFTY FIFTY members revealed on Instagram, there was no mention of Keena’s name. There was no explanation for the unfair treatment that Keena experienced during her time working with FIFTY FIFTY and ATTRAKT as well. This triggered more questions about whether Keena was only actively participating in the lawsuit simply out of her loyalty to the members.
At the end of the day, Keena was one of FIFTY FIFTY members who had the longest training of 7.5 years. Knowing that it was possible for FIFTY FIFTY to disband after such a gruesome lawsuit, she might have changed her mind.
FIFTY FIFTY Keena Returns: ATTRAKT CEO Reveals Her Regrets and Promises Her Future Activities
Still, amidst the ongoing speculations, there has been no official statement on whether FIFTY FIFTY members are having internal discord. The only official statement available today was from ATTRAKT CEO Jeon Hong Joon.
The ATTRAKT CEO revealed details of his meeting with Keena. He stated that Keena had sincerely apologized in tears, and CEO Jeon decided to welcome her return.
However, since he believed that Keena was going through a tough time, ATTRAKT CEO didn’t discuss further about future plans. He simply stated that the company had fully accepted Keena’s return.
“Keena is genuinely tired. It is hard to fathom the emotional challenges she has been going through.
She cried during our talk, apologized, and thanked me for addressing the issue. She also mentioned it took her some time to get there.
Keena is fully aware of her mistakes and needs time to think them over.
We at ATTRAKT will welcome her back, but due to her extreme exhaustion, we’ll hold off on more talks until she’s fully rested.”ATTRAKT CEO.
Meanwhile, fans of FIFTY FIFTY refuse to believe the CEO’s statement and will wait for Keena to make her statement independently. Still, they would continue supporting all four members of FIFTY FIFTY.
The Fifty Fifty lawsuit continues based on the original claims, the details of which are being released to the public via the members' Instagram account. As long as this continues, we continue to #Boycott_Attrakt and work to #FreeFiftyFifty.— HunniesUnited (@hunniesunited) October 17, 2023
We will not confirm anything until we get a statement from Keena herself. Furthermore, Keena's decision regarding the lawsuit is solely her own and does not reflect anything about the other members' legal situation. We will support all members in any decision they make.— HunniesUnited (@hunniesunited) October 16, 2023
FIFTY FIFTY Possible Future: Disband and Regroup?
Finally, with the recent news and updates in FIFTY FIFTY lawsuit development, it is highly possible that the group will eventually disband.
With the official trademark owned by ATTRAKT and Keena returns, it is way more difficult for the remaining members to promote as FIFTY FIFTY. Therefore, the most possible future for FIFTY FIFTY members is to officially disband the group and redebut with a new brand.
Still, with the tarnished reputation of the members, the future journey of all 4 FIFTY FIFTY members would be extremely rocky. Therefore, let’s support both FIFTY FIFTY and ATTRAKT as they work towards resolving their lawsuit and related issues.
