On May 25, Lee Seung Gi made a significant appearance at the Seoul Central District Court, where he opened up about his grievances against his former agency, Hook Entertainment. The singer and actor, embroiled in a legal battle over unpaid earnings, expressed feeling betrayed by the agency during the civil suit hearing.

Lee Seung Gi, now under the management of Big Planet Made Entertainment, revealed how his former agency portrayed him in a negative light, labeling him as someone solely driven by money. He described feeling betrayed by the treatment he received, highlighting instances where CEO Kwon Jin Young allegedly used abusive language and assault, exploiting Lee Seung Gi's young age and lack of social experience.

The term gaslighting emerged in Lee Seung Gi's testimony, indicating a manipulation tactic aimed at making someone doubt their own reality. He expressed hope that such mistreatment would not be repeated and that others would not fall victim to similar experiences.
