Oska once published a magazine called ‘the latest Hallyu Star Special- Big Bang’ but the photos that they used had not been authorized by YGE before.
The lawyer of Big Bang said, “The publishing company has admitted that they had used the photos without prior authorization. Moreover, the revenue that the magazine gained has been offset by the compensation that it has to pay.”
A staff of Okra said, “we have not explicitly said that we have reached a compromise.”
