#SaveLoona

Orbits (Loona’s fandom) are showing their online presence once more to help the iconic girl group.

Following a report that alleges the K-pop group’s agency, Blockberry Creative, is suffering financial difficulties, fans took to social media with the hashtag SaveLoona in support of the band.

The NME stated the news stems from a report by Sports World, which cites information from “multiple music industry sources”, and claims Blockberry Creative owes “hundreds of millions of won” to external contractors.

Another website, Meaww, alleged units in charge of hairdressing, make-up and wardrobe had received a notice of shutdown from the company.

It stated outsourced staff had been working without pay for months, which had started to “affect the label and Loona”.
