JYJ and SM Entertainment’s legal battle comes to an end

The legal battle between JYJ and SM Entertainment has finally come to an end!

After what seems like forever, the two sides are reported to have come to a mutual agreement on the 28th.

It is said that SM Entertainment and JYJ have both withdrawn all lawsuits against one another, and have agreed to not interfere with any of each other’s activities.

The long drawn out fight was started back in July 31st, 2009 when the initial lawsuit was filed against SM Entertainment by the three members of JYJ, who were part of TVXQ, requesting for the cancellation of their contracts. Since then, the two sides failed to reach an agreement every time and was due back in court again later this year.

It seems the legal battle is now over, and both sides, especially JYJ, can work towards moving forward free of the legal issues that had been holding them back.

They are finally free!!! We will just have to see if they can actually go on shows like running man and promote and if not and we are given a stupid excuse then we will know SM hasn`t cut the bullshit yet.
soft_daisy 28th-Nov-2012 04:22 am (UTC)
omg, i really want to see junsu and jaejoong on rm (i don't think chun will really care lol)

Stations lose the excuse of the lawsuit now, unless backdoor deals still happen. We shall see. I'd hope that people realize they can have their cake and eat it too. I never expected it to be over this soon though. I thought I'd be done with pharm school by then and I haven't even taken my exam yet! lol

It's an agreement but JYJ doesn't have to pay anything, so congrats. Using this icon BECAUSE.

Finially. I hope that when they release a new album they can somewhat promote it.

I legit cried when I saw this. I understand this won't change much, but right now I don't even care, I'm just the lawsuit is over.
lazmy 28th-Nov-2012 03:28 am (UTC)
nothing's changed though... they still won't be able to perform without people pissing themselves
luvey 28th-Nov-2012 03:28 am (UTC)
About time...but the real factor is to see if JYJ will be able to truely promote freely ....
xxhna 28th-Nov-2012 03:29 am (UTC)
After everything that happened, I'm a bit surprised at how this ended. But either way, Ill believe its over when I see them on shows, etc.

it just seems so hard to believe that it's OVER.
really hoping that they can finally start promoting their future stuffs and appear on running man, really *.*
line_genrou 28th-Nov-2012 03:30 am (UTC)
After the tension left between them and other SM idols, I wonder how awkward it would be to have them on a show together with Shindong or Sungmin, for example lol
lysblack 28th-Nov-2012 03:30 am (UTC)
i hate that this article says nothing at all, i want to know what were the tearms agreed!

There were none. Literally. SME said your contract was concluded in 2009 since JYJ said they didn't want to promote as TVXQ. SME said management over them was pointless. They both agreed to withdraw and "stay out of each other's lives".

ceecile 28th-Nov-2012 03:31 am (UTC)
Got to laugh at "Both parties agreed not to interfere with each other’s activities." How has JYJ ever interfered lol

Hopefully they can promote freely now. JYJ hwaiting!

mina22 28th-Nov-2012 03:32 am (UTC)
I am so happy for them. I am going to try and stay positive and hopefully they will now be able to promote on shows.
istalkalert 28th-Nov-2012 03:32 am (UTC)
please let them appear on shows, that is all im asking for
rinn1e 28th-Nov-2012 03:33 am (UTC)
I need JYJ's lawyers to speak some genius shit right now. Cause I don't trust whatever shit SME is saying. ( to my believed that it's SME that throw out this news)
fadeintoyou 28th-Nov-2012 03:40 am (UTC)
[i]"I need JYJ's lawyers to speak some genius shit right now."[/i]

this. pretty much.
pepper 28th-Nov-2012 03:33 am (UTC)
Is it really over though? Will JYJ finally be able to promote freely?
We will see... Jesus, I'm still shaking tbh.
ceecile 28th-Nov-2012 03:33 am (UTC)

Somethings fishy here...

i agree :/ it's like too abrupt???
honeyfunnybunny 28th-Nov-2012 03:35 am (UTC)
wait, what?
i never thought i'd live long enough to know how it ends, considering how drawn out it was. i'm feeling so weird, is it time to celebrate? what is going to change? what what what
11th_dance 28th-Nov-2012 03:38 am (UTC)
mte. my euphoria wore off after 2 mins. now i'm just filled with more confusion T^T
baboboy 28th-Nov-2012 03:35 am (UTC)
I just want to see them in running man ;;
jaejoong 28th-Nov-2012 05:01 am (UTC)
Jaejoong/Yoo JaeSuk OTP for life.

Also, i think all 3 of them and JiHyo would be the cutest thing ever.
yingmoon26 28th-Nov-2012 03:36 am (UTC)
seriously? is this actually it?

we shall have to see...because i still feel like JYJ will be restricted in everything they do. even if SM says they won't interfere i feel like shows and channels will still prevent JYJ from going on just in case SM gets pissed off. a silent order, or something like that.
