Former Stray Kids member Woojin recently had his agency, 10X Entertainment, make a statement regarding the sexual assault accusations made against him, but some netizens think it’s a bogus agency, one he even made up himself.
Following the release of his statement via his agency, netizens immediately began to take a deeper look into Woojin’s new agency, and they discovered some things that didn’t sit quite right with them.
To begin with, they questioned the validity of the entertainment agency, as the company’s official Twitter account was created on September 8, 2020, the same day the scandal broke out, and only follows one person, Kim Woojin.
Shortly after the statement was released, an entertainment company with the same name was rumored to be his new agency, but they confirmed they had no relationship with Woojin, and are simply a DJ duo that is based in the Chicagoland area in the United States.

Netizens also began to take a look at the logo created for his agency, and discovered that the 0 in the 10X exactly matches a logo used by an Argentinian furniture and design company, Hanford.

A simple Google or Naver search for 10X Entertainment also results in zero relevant results. Putting all of these hints together, many netizens think Woojin created a bogus agency in order to try and defend himself, and now they are calling him out for it.

so woojin follows 10x.ent on instagram but it's possible that he created the account, which he wouldn't need to if he was already under an entertainment company, meaning he could also be lying about getting into a company and just trying to scare the victims with "legal action"
