Following an idol trainee under an unnamed company coming forward with the story that her CEO made them send him pictures in their underwear, another individual came forward on Twitter and named the company as LPA Entertainment. She described her experience with the company, which sounded similar to what the other trainee said, and provided screenshots of texts as evidence.
I sent the photos the same way. i couldn’t talk to them anymore then i felt dirty and insecure. I am only 16 years old. this is not done with minors.

Yeah, when I read the initial story, this was a concern. Even though there wasn’t evidence yet that it was done to minors as well, given the typical ages of trainees it wasn’t a stretch to assume it was. Sure enough, it happened to this person.
Regardless, glad she came forward with this as it provides a look at how these types of companies can try and normalize utterly ridiculous immoral requests. And hopefully she’s not been getting any backlash for this as the company doing this is obviously in the wrong and is abusing their power.
While I was wondering if this could actually help with the ongoing investigation, I saw a reply to her that alleges to be the writer of the previous exclusive, so I hope that’s legit and she can help with the case and/or the story.
