Ex-CEO of Melon operator jailed for pocketing billions in royalties from musicians

The former CEO of a company that ran Melon, South Korea's No. 1 music streaming service operator, has been sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison for siphoning off music royalties worth billions of won from musicians.

The Seoul Eastern District Court handed down the jail term Tuesday to the 58-year-old former chief of Loen Entertainment, surnamed Shin, on fraud charges. Loen Entertainment, which was renamed Kakao M Corp. in 2018, was the former operator of Melon. The music service is currently run by local tech giant Kakao Corp., the mother company of Kakao M.

The court also sentenced the company's former vice president to 2 1/2 years in prison, suspended for four years, and its ex-head of operations to 1 1/2 years in prison, suspended for three years, on the same charges.

Prosecutors indicted the three in September 2019 on charges of illegally pocketing royalties worth 18.2 billion won (US$16.4 million) from some of the musicians who shared their work on Melon.
