if there is one member of the BlockBerry Creative girl group, Loona that is known to the world outside of the girl group it is Chuu. Born as Kim Ji-woo (Jiwoo), Loona's Chuu shot to fame as an 'ulzzang' girl. Ulzzang also called eoljjang is a popular South Korean term meaning "best face" or "good-looking". Being so popular even before her debut, Chuu seemed to be working very hard to achieve the success she has in her career but it seems like the rumors about Chuu having a tiff with her label BlockBerry Creative are still ongoing. Over the last few years, Chuu's agency has been under fire for mistreating the Loona member.

Back in 2021, it was announced that Loona’s Chuu had filed a lawsuit against her label, Blockberry Creative, after she was being overworked by being made to take up multiple TV shows and solo events. This was believed to be because the label, which was going bankrupt, was banking on Chuu’s solo gigs to stay afloat. After the lawsuit was filed, future reports suggested that Chuu received partial victory over her lawsuit against her label. It was stated that Chuu could choose the activities she would like to participate in after a certain clause from her exclusive contract with Loona’s label was terminated.

Not only that but last month it was stated that Chuu would sit out the girl group's upcoming concert following their comeback with 'Flip That' leaving fans concerned about how the label was managing Chuu.
