Release from FM Entertainment
Beohman, unfortunately, had his contract terminated by FM Entertainment on 6 September 2023. The announcement shocked fans, given his pre-debut fame, but their shock quickly turned to anger and frustration after reading FM Entertainment’s stern statement.
FM Entertainment accused Beomhan of distorting the truth and spreading misleading information during his live broadcasts, which led to concerns by other artists signed by the same agency. The contract termination was described as a mutual decision after extensive negotiations. FM Entertainment claimed to have solid evidence supporting their allegations of Beomhan’s contract violations.
While the precise details of FM Entertainment’s accusations remained unclear, fans suspected that they might relate to Beomhan’s candid confessions during his live streams, when he disclosed issues such as the lack of health insurance, financial support for shoulder surgery, and inadequate food provision. Fans had also grown increasingly concerned about Beomhan’s mental well-being, particularly after he revealed a past suicide attempt during a live broadcast in March, citing cyberbullying as one of the factors.
In response to FM Entertainment’s statement, Beomhan expressed gratitude on his Instagram for his fans’ continuous support, and addressed their confusion and frustration. Despite the setbacks, he has expressed determination to continue to pursue his goals.
Fans have sided with Beomhan, offering their love and support, and hoping for his future debut with another agency.
Nevertheless, he has come forward to his fans and admitted to having mental health problems during past months and that he was inflicting self-harm wounds. In a recent statement, Beomhan has said that the fans can expect new music soon, which will be different than his previous releases.
According to authoritative sources, Beomhan’s net worth is estimated at $5 million, as of late 2023.
