OMEGA X’s CEO Reportedly Physically And Verbally Assaulted The Members Following Their LA Concert — Company Response

A fan of 'Omega X' claimed on Twitter that he witnessed an assault after the performance....

Boy group OMEGA X‘s company CEO, was reportedly caught physically and verbally abusing the members following their concert in Los Angeles.

OMEGA X held the final stop of their concert tour, 2022 OMEGA X WORLD TOUR [CONNECT: Don’t give up], last night (October 22 local time) and was excited to be able to meet with their fans for the last time this round of concerts.

Following the concert, Xen posted on the group members’ accounts, thanking their fans for attending the show. The post was made on October 22, 11:45 pm PST.

However, an individual’s post on October 23, 1:48 am PST, shared an audio recording of a person suspected of being their company (Spire Entertainment) CEO Hwang Seong U (also known as Peter Hwang) allegedly screaming at and physically abusing the members.

Guys, I was waiting for the Uber when I called outside and saw the company CEO hitting the members. I didn’t know what to do since my hands were shaking. They were being shot before me, but I couldn’t do anything.

In the audio recording, the individual claimed to be Hwang Seong U could be heard screaming at the OMEGA X members. However, it is believed that the individual hitting and screaming at the members may not be Hwang Seong U, but instead, a different person within the company as the voice is a female voice and Hwang Seong U is a male voice. Even still, SBS News has also included in their report that the CEO was allegedly the perpetrator. Below is the transcript of the recorded audio.

CEO: What have you guys done for me? Did you take care of me when I was having a hard time?

CEO: Stop?

Member: [inaudible]… it was right

CEO: Who do you think you are? Who do you think you are?

Member: [A member] is going to faint

CEO: I’ve already fainted before!

sound of someone falling

Member: Oh!

CEO: Now get up!

Member: What are you doing right now?

sound of a thud

sound of someone crying

Celuv Media attempted to contact Spire Entertainment for a statement regarding the incident but could not secure anything other than “we will look into it.”

They are still in the United States, so we are unable to get in contact with them. We will clarify our position as soon as we can confirm the situation.

Fans of the group and non-fans attempt to draw attention to the staff member’s wrongdoings to ensure the artists are adequately taken care of.

Fans were also re-sharing previous instances when the company mistreated their artists, such as when the members were blocked from interacting with fans on V LIVE and uploading content on Twitter.

Another fan posted an encounter on October 4, where a woman was seen yelling at the OMEGA X members on two separate occasions on the same day. This anecdote seems to corroborate that the person in the newly released audio is not Hwang Seong U but a different staff member, as it is mentioned that a woman was doing the screaming here.

No matter who the person screaming and physically abusing the OMEGA X members was, it is simply unacceptable.
