JYJ - SM News Round Up


JYJ-SM Come To An Agreement: SM “It Was For The Best”, JYJ “A Battle That Had Already Been Won”

The legal dispute between SM Entertainment and JYJ (Kim Junsu, Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun) has finally come to an end through an agreement after three years and four months.

According to judicial circles, SM Entertainment and the three members of JYJ came to an agreement on the 28th to settle the termination date of any and all contracts between the two parties as the 31st of July, 2009, the date that JYJ filed their injunction of nullification. Also, it has been found that they have decided to drop all related lawsuits and have signed an agreement stating that they will not interfere with any activities that the other party pursues.

SM Entertainment said, “The trio stated that they have no intention of performing as members of the group ‘TVXQ’, so SM has come to the decision that we no longer have a reason to be in charge of management for the trio. We have come to a mutual agreement to not interfere with the other party’s activities as our paths will not cross in the future, and the lawsuit has come to an end through this agreement. Also, we have come to the decision that the best course of action was to end this lawsuit to ensure that there will be no more additional damages or unnecessary issues that arise because of the lawsuit that may harm U-Know Yunho and Choikang Changmin, who are currently active as ‘TVXQ’.”

CEO Baek Chang Joo of C-JeS Entertainment stated, “We believed that this was a battle that had already been won three years ago when the courts accepted our injunction. To be honest, we don’t believe that there will be much change to JYJ’s activities after the verdict because the interference of JYJ’s activities isn’t a legal issue, but a battle between David and Goliath.” He also added, “We are currently walking down a path that only JYJ could take, and we will continue to pursue our own activities, as planned,” and “We hope that the success of this agreement will rectify the various limitations placed upon JYJ that used the lawsuit as an excuse, and we would like to once more sincerely thank the domestic and international fans who have given JYJ their unwavering support from the start.”

SM and JYJ Put an End to Their Long, Winding Legal Suit

SM Entertainment and JYJ′s long three-year-and-four-month-long legal fight has come to an end with a mutual agreement.

Through an official press release issued on November 28, SM Entertainment said it decided to wrap up the issue “to avoid bringing additional harm to U-Know Yunho and Max Changmin, who are active as TVXQ (DBSK), and to avoid making any more unneeded issues.”

It added, “The three (JYJ) have confirmed that they are not willing to be active any longer as TVXQ, and so SM Entertainment has decided that there is no need for the company to continue to manage the three. We have also decided not to interfere in each other′s matters in the future, and this is how the trial has come to an end with today′s hearing.”

With the end of the long legal journey, attention has been paid to whether JYJ will be able to appear again in the three major channels.

About the reason JYJ has not been appearing in KBS2′s Music Bank or its variety shows such as Win Win, KBS has previously said, “Because the issue between JYJ and its former agency isn′t finished, KBS has been keeping its eye on the results of the trial with as objective an attitude as possible. Normally, celebrities involved in a legal battle refrain from appearing [in such shows], as their appearances can affect the results of the legal processions. We plan to invite them or book their appearance in shows depending on the results of the trial.”

Ever since JYJ filed for a cancellation of its contract against SM Entertainment on July 31, 2009, Kim Jae Joong, Park Yoo Chun and Kim Junsu haven′t been able to appear in variety or music shows on the three major channels. They have, instead, made appearances in dramas produced by outsourced productions.

Now that the legal battle has come to an end, there is a chance that the group will start to appear on main channel shows as singers again.

After filing their suit against SM Entertainment, the members of JYJ have signed a new management contract with C-JeS Entertainment, and have since been active in film, drama and musicals.

Contract dispute between SM Entertainment and JYJ finally ends

The contract dispute between SM Entertainment and JYJ (Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, Kim Junsu) has finally ended after 3 years and 4 months.

According to several reports on November 28th, SM Entertainment and JYJ have resolved the contract dispute, with both sides deciding to end the files for injunction that were filed on July 31st, 2009.

In addition, both sides withdrew all related litigation, signing a contract that they will not embark in mutual matters again.

A representative from SM Entertainment said through a press release on the 28th, “The three no longer wanted to be part of TVXQ as there is no reason to be under the management of SM Entertainment. And so, it was decided to end the case and negotiation today with the agreement that there will be no mutual connections.”

“In order to prevent any further discomfort and unnecessary issues for the current TVXQ members, U-Know Yunho and Max Changmin, who have continued to proceed with their activities, the judge decided that it was best to end this trial.”

C-JeS representative Baek Changju said, “Three years ago when the court accepted our injunction, we thought that this was a fight we had already won. The legal situation isn’t what interfered with JYJ’s activities, but this was more of a David vs. Goliath situation. We don’t see it as a big change in their activities. JYJ is going to continue with their future plans and activities as planned.”

“With this final court verdict, we hope that the restriction that was involved in this case will improve. We want to send our sincere thanks to fans who have been continuously giving their support without any changes.”

JYJ first made their entrance into the music industry as part of the 5-member group TVXQ, until the trio filed an injunction at the Seoul Central District Court against SM Entertainment on July 31st, 2009, disputing their contract with the agency. Since September 2010, they formed the group JYJ under C-JeS and have been relatively active in the music industry, going on world tours, and achieving high success in the acting scene since then.

2. [+854, -393] Honestly speaking, vocal talent = JYJ

3. [+639, -385] Congrats.. ^^ and to the haters, how about you guys live your own lives instead of spreading hate here… Y’all should be studying at this time ㅠㅠ

4. [+188, -74] SM should stop blocking them from broadcasts. What is such a big company doing? It’s pathetic. Scared of JYJ winning fair and square?

2. [+106, -24] I’ve hated SM since they let H.O.T. go like that. I really want to see JYJ on public broadcast soon.

3. [+92, -24] SM’s really scary ㅋㅋ Imagine how much worse it is for their artists… Every day must be like walking on thin ice for them

JYJ’s Lawsuit with SM – The Reactions of Chief Directors & Other Directors of KBS, MBC and SBS

SUMMARIZE: The Reactions of Chief Directors and other directors at the entertainment part in the Broadcasting Company…- about end of the ruling and the future

KBS:
(Chon Jinkook-Chief Director)
I heard the news this afternoon..
I think we can tell about our position after the taking and arranging the situation..
As the main reason was ruling..
So, in my opinion, there's no reason to block their appearances on our programs if it is clearly solved.

MBC:
(Won Mansik-Chief Director)
Although the ruling was over.. I think their appearances need the time.

(and other officer said...)
We have no discussion about their appearances on our programs (including our music programs and entertainment programs) until now..
I think the whole entertainment part should think about this for now.

SBS:
(Park Seungmin-SBS ingigayo PD) It's the problem of the whole entertainment part. We still have no discussion about this. So I have no words about this.

Source: OSEN | Translated by: Min (@theyoungestmin) | Shared by: JYJ3 

I am confused. If they're not expecting any changes then why settle at all? Unless they got more out of it that they are letting on? There's probably a gag order so we'll never know.

idk, OP. Maybe they're just tired as hell or they don't expect the outcome to be much better even if they win (maybe yes in terms of money but not when it comes to freedom in the entertainment business). And I think they don't expect changes the way we don't either: yeah, stations won't have 'the excuse' of the lawsuit anymore, but they'll probably won't have JYJ on their shows even then, so whatevs.

Still hoping to see JYJ on Running Man one day. FOREVER HOPING, K. Even if just Jaejoong :(
laeryn 28th-Nov-2012 07:32 pm (UTC)
Also, SM: we all noticed that there was no need for you to be in charge of JYJ's management about, idk, THREE YEARS AGO? Yeeeeeah, js.
benihime99 28th-Nov-2012 07:31 pm (UTC)
"I think their appearances need the time".

I see
istalkalert 28th-Nov-2012 07:52 pm (UTC)
I think it's enough time already. You know with it already being 3 years and 4 months.
honeyfunnybunny 28th-Nov-2012 07:35 pm (UTC)
I'm excited to see what exactly will change though. Though I doubt much will change at all, sment may have an agreement with them to not interfere in each others activities - but now it's all on the broadcasting companies that will have to consider if they'd like to keep their bond with sment intact or let jyj get on ;___;

Just because you sign something and agree on not doing something, won't mean they won't turn bitter towards a third party if they ever make it that far tbqh. This is so bad, I've turned so skeptic lol

kinda ot, but i was reblogging all these ot5 pictures on tumblr and then my itunes started playing 'i dont want to miss a thing - aerosmith'.. and i realized i had tears in my eyes. WTF.

but anyways, just gonna copy and paste what i said on twitter yesterday:
it was like a blessing in disguise. without the lawsuit, we wouldn't have known how much potential each person had. and how much they could actually achieve when there were things they couldn't do, and only a few things they could do to appear on tv and like, finding their own sound. getting comfortable with their new roles and filling out where they felt they were weak... and then there were us, growing closer through desperate times and maturing with the years TOGETHER. you know whats funny? how we all found ways to get through it, but the keyword was always never going through it alone. i took comfort in knowing that everyone involved wasn't going through it alone, no matter if it was 3 or 2, they were never fighting/dealing with it alone during those times - even if the conditions they were going through were different.
blu_eyezz 28th-Nov-2012 08:28 pm (UTC)
it was like a blessing in disguise. without the lawsuit, we wouldn't have known how much potential each person had.

I agree you with you on that sentence!!Im soo glad that Yunho has had a chance to improve his vocals and sing more parts!It shows he is not just a handsome face and a good dancer guess SM realised that too! xD

just maybe one day we will see them on one stage..
glenda_ices 28th-Nov-2012 07:39 pm (UTC)
The whole "they don't want to be part of TVXQ" thing kinda stung tbh. But I honestly can't see JYJ back in SM. Why would they want to go back?

And this is just so anticlimactic. A lot of wasted money for nothing.

So KBS yes? MBC & SBS are gonna wait it out?

Imagine JYJ on Running Man though??? T__T the ratings would probably skyrocket (not that RM's ratings aren't high already)
p3rk3le 28th-Nov-2012 08:06 pm (UTC)
The whole "they don't want to be part of TVXQ" thing kinda stung tbh
what bothers me is what does that mean. like, if they disclaimed all their rights in any profit the could/would make from previous DBSK albums...? and if yes, then did they do that so that they could make an agreement and something does change and they can promote freely? but will they? all those reports say the same thing and none of them actually answers anything important.
dbskthskjyj 28th-Nov-2012 07:42 pm (UTC)
"as our paths will not cross in the future"

Err....except when TVXQ and JYJ appear on Music Shows, right? Whenever that happens, shits going to get loose...
bunica1990 28th-Nov-2012 07:57 pm (UTC)
They'll probably going to try and avoid that.
teukattack 28th-Nov-2012 07:59 pm (UTC)
anyone else saying WHO CARES

anyone else think JYJ and TVXQ are kinda old news????? I thought TVXQ was old news back in 2009 when this happened!
dippz 28th-Nov-2012 08:55 pm (UTC)
I kinda agree too

The new generation of idols are already here (infinite, Teen top, Beast, block b, etc)
liaison_alley 28th-Nov-2012 08:04 pm (UTC)
From reading some other translations I think the 'activities won't change' sentiment from CJeS is not so much about the blocking continuing. I think they're saying that JYJ aren't going to drastically change how they do things now that the lawsuits are over. They'll probably keep doing world tours and writing their own music and participating in dramas/musicals. They're successful and seemingly happy with what they've achieved on their own. No need to re-integrate with the typical Kpop system.

KBS seems to have the best outlook, but it's not the first time they've made promises and screwed JYJ over. But if they go through with it the other broadcasters will probably be encouraged to follow. Ratings will skyrocket, of course.

SME's statements are so obviously crafted to make them seem like the better party. It implies that JYJ's intention was to split from Changmin and Yunho and now SME is kindly releasing them from their contracts, because JYJ no longer need their managerial services.
Big old heaping pile of bullshit, but what else would you expect from SME? Lol.

Whatever, I'm just prancing around all stupid happy today because of this. I can't imagine that this will be worse for JYJ than what they've already dealt with. I think they have nowhere to go but up from here... even if it's slow, it'll be sweet.

Sweet sweet victory.
ceecile 28th-Nov-2012 08:10 pm (UTC)
Idk the guys have been really open about wanting to appear on broadcasts (music & variety shows). And the part about "the interference of JYJ’s activities isn’t a legal issue, but a battle between David and Goliath." is pretty telling imo.
scubajr 28th-Nov-2012 08:20 pm (UTC)
This still feels surreal to me.
I'm hoping that they will be able to appear on TV shows again but I feel like SM will use the back door to still block them.
I got all excited when I read the statement by the Chief Director of KBS but the other two kind of bummed me out.
biberss 28th-Nov-2012 08:40 pm (UTC)
I am wondering though. Since they settled like this, nobody gets any money at all, or?

aand I am happy for all the boys, this has been hanging over all their heads for far too long...
now we just need to fatten up Jaejoong + burn Yunho and Changmin's "Dior trackpants outfit" from Catch me and I will be perfectly happy <3
erbalurbal 28th-Nov-2012 08:41 pm (UTC)
I don't think there were any secret deals . SM is childish and they would probably rather blow up their company than give JYJ anything. Lawsuits are mentally and financially draining. I'm sure more was happening to them behind the scenes than we realize. It probably just wasn't worth it anymore, the amount they were asking for from SM really isn't that much and they probably make way more than that each year, it was probably best to just let it go.

dippz 28th-Nov-2012 08:50 pm (UTC)
“The trio stated that they have no intention of performing as members of the group ‘TVXQ’,

So can we now stop calling Yunho and Changmin "Homin" and start calling them TVXQ/DBSK/Tohoshinki whatever

Honestly speaking, vocal talent = JYJ

Yoochun cant sing for shit though.....
istalkalert 28th-Nov-2012 09:13 pm (UTC)
You're obviously a Homin stan...
And in my opinion, I find Yoochun's singing better than Changmin and Yunho.

And I don't care. I will forever call Yunho and Changmin as Homin.
My freeedommmmmmm to call them whatever I want.


(Sorry if I sound mean, just that the past weeks made me kind of bitchy...)

as our paths will not cross in the future O_o Okaaaaay.

SO all of this really was over the name 'tvxq'; because that's what it sounds like to me. I guess we'll really see how this will go next year between the two.
dippz 28th-Nov-2012 09:22 pm (UTC)
Nothing is gonna change....

We still ain't gonna see JYJ on Tv unless its in a drama and Yunho and Changmin's talents and popularity are still gonna be questioned
asnindie 28th-Nov-2012 09:30 pm (UTC)
It's fucking nearly 2013 and JYJ and Homin fans are still arguing like little children about it.
tokidoki88 28th-Nov-2012 09:33 pm (UTC)
It's fucking nearly 2013 and YunJae is still real.
earthequality 28th-Nov-2012 09:48 pm (UTC)
I think an edit from tumblr says it best for me. Don't cry because its over, smile because it happened. There where so many times when DBSK almost didn't happen or we would have been short a member. All things come to an end or evolve. I'm sad that they parted like this, but I'm glad they can continue to do what they love. AllI want is their freedom to promote, HoMin and JYJ happy, and a personal reconcile in later years. Because the bond they had was something you don't find every day.

lovelyxbeauty 28th-Nov-2012 09:55 pm (UTC)
thank fuck this is over, but I am weary, espcially about KBS, they said they would let them perform before but they never did :/

However I am glad it is finished and I am glad it was mentioned that JYJ don't want to perform as TVXQ, maybe some OT5 will stop acting like Junsu and Yoochun cry every night and Jaejoong sits around thinking of killing himself -_-
asnindie 28th-Nov-2012 10:10 pm (UTC)
Jaejoong cries about the Yunho ass he's not tapping anymore.

But no really some people have their imaginations going overdrive.
yasmine2009 28th-Nov-2012 10:11 pm (UTC)
All I know is that any and everyone that calls TVXQ, Homin. Can take many seats.

It is disrespectful as every type of fuck to take the name that Yunho and Changmin spent years, blood, sweat, and tears into from them. JYJ decide that they wanted to leave that name and it's just fine. I don't care if you have all these memories of 5 people as TVXQ/DBSK. Today, right fucking now they are 2 and their name is still TVXQ.

Be mad at me all you want...
benihime99 28th-Nov-2012 10:27 pm (UTC)
I honesty don't think people are denying them the name.
For me SM and thus them own the name (and yes they're still working hard and with guys like Yunho they'll always work hard) but when I say DBSK/TVXQ/Toho to most of my friends they think DBSK5 so using HoMin is an habit to avoid misunderstanding.
I think a lot of people do the same without meaning any disrespect.

For me it's like when I talk about NEWS with my j-pop friends, if I say NEWS my friends think NEWS6 and I actually have to say 4nin
adorkable_bunny 28th-Nov-2012 10:13 pm (UTC)
wow.. i'm really glad it's finally over. hmm.. looking into the future.. i cannot wait to watch their first live performance where they can finally promote and perform on their domestic stage in front of their loyal fans ^___^ . it will surely be a day to remember <33.
tiggie0307 28th-Nov-2012 10:19 pm (UTC)
ngl I expect to see either member of JYJ or the whole group on Running Man by next fall or winter.
yuukihitohira 28th-Nov-2012 11:18 pm (UTC)
It better be sooner than that. Like....January.

I just want Jaejoong or Junsu or all three to go on and fawn over Jihyo and make Gary jealous and just be...them :(
yuukihitohira 28th-Nov-2012 10:29 pm (UTC)
Honestly, I'm just glad that both companies don't have to waste money on this lawsuit anymore. They both can go their separate ways and focus on the more important things.

I'm especially talking about SM because now that they don't have to pay lawyer fees and what not, they can actually spend more $$$ on DBSK and their other groups and bring back the quality they use to have in MVs and albums ;\ And now maybe C-Jes can cut some of the prices of the JYJ shit they release so I'm not tempted to buy a damn $300 DVD =_=

All in all, it's been 3 and a half years and I'm just glad it's done. It hurts, yeah, but now we can all just start taking the first real steps to move on now that it's official.
tiggie0307 28th-Nov-2012 10:33 pm (UTC)
YES TO ALL OF THIS

$300 DVD?! The hell are they smoking!
jaejoong 28th-Nov-2012 10:42 pm (UTC)
Give them at least one round of legit music promotions, an unblocked concert in Korea, and a couple of episodes of Running Man and I will ask for nothing more!
besides a Jaejoong solo rock album, ofc

Seriously, just music shows and Running Man. That's all I want.
SM can keep Strong Heart and WGM and whatever other flop variety shows they want!
laeryn 28th-Nov-2012 10:45 pm (UTC)
besides a Jaejoong solo rock album, ofc

yes.
please.
god.
yes.
soramai 28th-Nov-2012 10:51 pm (UTC)
meh, I want to see Junsu performing on music show :/
benihime99 29th-Nov-2012 09:43 am (UTC)
me too ><
pepper 28th-Nov-2012 11:04 pm (UTC)
Give me Jaejoong on Running Man. NOW.

The trio stated that they have no intention of performing as members of the group ‘TVXQ’, so SM has come to the decision that we no longer have a reason to be in charge of management for the trio.
So... was SM still expecting JYJ to come back to them (and perform as TVXQ) after all this time? Until yesterday? Was that the reason why they dragged the lawsuit for 3+ years? Pfft.
lee_chikin 28th-Nov-2012 11:13 pm (UTC)
My best friend's words: "I don't want to say that I hoped they'd come back as five, but... I HOPED THEY'D COME BACK AS FIVE DAMMIT /cries".
anconeous 28th-Nov-2012 11:44 pm (UTC)
It's freaking almost 2013 and there is still name wank. HoMin, DBSK, Twinshinki, whatever. Let people call them whatever they want. At the end of the day, everyone knows they're the only DBSK members left and no one is invalidating that. No need to call someone disrespectful for a preference.
earthequality 29th-Nov-2012 01:34 am (UTC)
Thank you! TVXQ! is what they typically use besides when they're introduced in Korea in a sentence. I use HoMin to talk about them as people, but people keep getting hella pressed over the damn name. Seems SME was the same.

The original line up was five. It isn't that hard to realize that they're only two official members now, so people can sit down when they call me disrespectful or the like, we know how hard they worked.
supplanter 28th-Nov-2012 11:58 pm (UTC)
Also, we have come to the decision that the best course of action was to end this lawsuit to ensure that there will be no more additional damages or unnecessary issues that arise because of the lawsuit that may harm U-Know Yunho and Choikang Changmin, who are currently active as ‘TVXQ’.

The only thing I'm wondering about is why this one reference has "Choikang Changmin" when every other time this is quoted it's "Max Changmin" (as, you know, it should be... right...?)
ceecile 29th-Nov-2012 12:03 am (UTC)
