what’s going on with the rose
According to fans on soial media – In March the 4 member band filed a lawsuit against their company J&Star cause they hadn’t been payed for 3 years, they were also severely overworked with a very heavy schedule and a lot of pressure to release unfinished songs .
The rose didn’t even ask for the money that they should’ve gotten,, they simply wanted their contract to be terminated so they could go on with making music .
We didn’t hear from them for a while until they slowly started posting again on their personal insta,, and when dojoon, one of the members, enlisted on 6/7.
later they made new social media acc (all under the name @TheRoseSound ) and they released a song called black rose on 24/8 that wasn’t linked to the company.
We were hoping that the lawsuit went trough however today the article linked below got released, this states that the lawsuit has been rejected by the court.

This means that the rose is stuck with a company that only sees them as money and treats them awfully, they’re 4 amazing guys who’s passion is making and performing music and they deserve better. J&Star would be nowhere without them and they know it.
