GWSN Fans Trend #SaveGWSN to Bring Awareness of Current Conditions

From February 19 onward fans of GWSN have trended #SAVEgwsn on Twitter hoping to bring attention to the current condition of GWSN and their company and staff. 

Recently, the group's label The Wave Music came under fire as producer Swin Lee claimed he hasn't been paid for his work on GWSN's latest album, 'The Other Side Of The Moon' which was released back in May 2021. 

Previously, an anonymous account on Twitter explained that they were a former employee and that the staff was not being paid. Both parties stress that they have no ill will towards the artists.

I'm an employee who worked at The WAVE MUSIC an entertainment for about a year and five months.

I quit my job around June this year, but I still haven't received my overdue salary, severance pay, and 4 months' worth of expenses that I was supposed to pay after I quit my job.

GROO decided to band together to bring awareness to the situation by trending #SAVEgwsn over the weekend, which has gained the attention of fans of other groups. 

Fans have pointed out that crowdfunding project site MAKESTAR takes requests for projects and they encouraged other fans to put in a request. 

A Summary of Points 

  • Lost translators for content.
  • Japanese fan club shut down. 
  • Fewer photos of GWSN on social media. 
  • Member Soso is on hiatus without news.
  • Former employees left the company without being paid.
  • The producer of the latest album "TOSOTM" was not paid.

Hopefully, things can work out for the group and their company. Keep following @Kpopwise for more news about GWSN.
