He continued to say, “Most of the comedians have however not signed on with another company yet. No one came out and said, ‘let’s wait’ but like a lot of them said at the award show they are waiting for this problem to be solved rather than look for other companies.”
A comedian from Coko Entertainment also aired his side saying, “The biggest reason we signed with Coko Entertainment was Kim Jun Ho sunbae. Most are saying that we should stick together and try to wait it out. There are slight difficulties in going around and fulfilling our schedules but there have been no problems”
