SEOUL: After some three years and four months, it’s finally over.

Korean pop-trio JYJ’s management agency C-Jes Entertainment announced Wednesday that JYJ has resolved its differences with SM Entertainment, and that both parties have dropped all lawsuits against one another, reported Korean media.

JYJ and SM Entertainment have also signed an agreement which recognised that JYJ’s previous employment contract with SM Entertainment ceased to be in effect on July 31, 2009, and states that both parties will not interfere in each other’s activities from now on.

Formed in 2010, JYJ’s members Kim Jae Joong, Park Yu Chun and Kim Jun Su (all former members of SM Entertainment’s boy band TVXQ) had previously taken SM Entertainment to court on July 31, 2009 over allegedly unfair contracts that bound them for 13 years and penalized them heavily if they wanted out of their contract.

What followed was years of legal wrangling between JYJ and SM Entertainment.

But all that is now history.

A spokesperson for SM Entertainment told Korean media on Wednesday that the Korean entertainment giant no longer wished to hold JYJ to their earlier contracts, since they have no intention of performing under the TVXQ moniker.

He added that breaking the legal stalemate was the best solution as it allows TVXQ’s remaining members Jung Yunho and Shim Changmin to conduct their activities without any further complications.

Baek Chang Joo, CEO of JYJ’s management agency C-Jes Entertainment claimed that the trio’s victory was assured since the very beginning of the legal saga, and thanked fans for their support.

Baek said he hoped the agreement would mean the lifting of the restrictions placed on JYJ by various media outlets, due to SM Entertainment’s massive influence.

[NEWS] Case closed: SM Entertainment finally sets JYJ free from TVXQ

Finally after a long 3 years and 4 months, the legal war has finally met its end; or has it?

On November 28th, SM Entertainment and JYJ have come to a mutual agreement after a long period. The fight that began in July 2009 when the current JYJ, who was part of the 5-member group TVXQ, wanted to cancel their existing contract with SM Entertainment. Both sides continued to clash with each other as there was no mutual agreement that could be established.

In the morning of November 28th, SM Entertainment announced, “It has been decided that the three (Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, Kim Junsu) do not want continue to be active with TVXQ, and therefore we made a decision that there is no need for us to manage the three. So, we have concluded that we will not be further involved with them.”

The statement continued with, “We thought this would be the best decision, so that the remaining members U-Know Yunho and Max Changmin who are working very hard, will no longer have any issues holding them back.”

JYJ’s agency C-JeS Entertainment’s CEO Baek Changju said he was “thankful” for the ongoing support from fans despite the lawsuit. “We are going a path that only JYJ can uniquely go. After the lawsuit’s end, we will start to be active on broadcasts more often now.

Now that the lawsuit battle has come to its conclusion, both parties, JYJ and TVXQ, can move forward without any barrier that will hinder and continue to pull them back.

Let’s look forward and anticipate as both groups have become ‘free’ of this legal case.

Updated: As this case comes to an abrupt end, some fans remain unconvinced.

One fan commented, “Most are extremely happy but some are very suspicious of not only how abrupt this is but how fishy it sounds after 3 years and 4 months of fighting, everything just suddenly dropped.”

[NEWS] JYJ And SM Entertainment End Lawsuits Against Each Other


JYJ and SM Entertainment’s legal battle against each other has come to an end as the two sides drop all charges against each other.

The two sides have been at war with each other since 2009, when the members of JYJ, all formerly members of TVXQ, filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment due to the unfair nature of their contract. The two sides have not been able to come to an agreement since, with judges unwilling to make a verdict regarding the situation.

A representative for SM Entertainment explained that the company is no longer interested in holding JYJ to their contractual obligations because the trio do not plan on becoming part of TVXQ again. The statement has caused disappointment among many fans who had been hopeful that a reunion was a possibility.

With SM Entertainment finally letting go of the JYJ trio, Baek Chang Joo, CEO of C-JeS Entertainment, hopes that restrictions from Korean media outlets against the group will be lifted, allowing the group to hold promotions for the first time.
