Annyeong! Reporter Taemi here! There have been an incident that Eric Nam and other artists under B2M Entertainment, got cheated out of their money! Seoul Central District Court revealed on May 13th that they have sentenced the former manager of B2M Entertainment name Jeon, to 8 months in prison! Until his resignation in 2014, he was in charge of securing TV appearances and managing events for the B2M's artists such as Eric Nam, Spica, Lee Hyori, Heo Young Saeng, Kim Kyujong, Nicole Jung, and more.
It has been told that former manager Jeon reportedly misappropriated the funds from B2M artists' profits a total of eight times, including 4.5 million KRW ($3,819 USD) from Heo Young Saeng's past photo shoot contract!
The court stated, "Jeon inappropriately used the company funds for himself, the damage for which is very severe and currently not being restored." This giving the reason for ruling.
I feel bad for Eric and the other artists , they didn't deserve that. Well I hope nothing like that won't ever happen again. That's why you have to be careful who you put your trust in because things like this could happen.

Do you think Jeon should get more than 8 months in prison? What are your thoughts?

omggg how dare they do such a thing. they all worked so hard and yet they do this. Better be glad it's only 8 months and not more. 馃槖馃槥 do not mess with Eric nor young saeng!
only 8 months??????? what the heck! that's absurd!!!
1. he better be happy Jackson didn't go ninja on his ass for messing with his partner in sassy crime. 2. 8 MONTHS IS LIKE FUCKING TIME OUT FOR ALL THE ARTISTS HE RIPPED OFF, AND WE'RE NOT EVEN TALKING NUMBERS YET! THE LIST OF ARTISTS HE RIPPED OFF ALONE SHOULD GET HIM LOCKED UP FOR LONGER! 3. NOW, LET'S TALK NUMBERS. THAT'S WAY TOO DAMN MUCH FOR HIM NOT TO GET YEARS!!!!!
sure, the artists won't die without that money since they make so much anyway, but this guy is all sorts of fucked up. if he wanted the money he should have worked hard for it like the artists did. this is where laws from other countries should be applied lol
Korea has always been like this when it comes to the unfair handling of artist's money. I think the most someone has gotten for a crime like this is 2 years. At the same time, it'd be nice to know why he did it before pooling so much anger or frustration towards his actions.
