Remember last month about the supposed false rumor" that TVXQ / DBSK / Tohoshinki was breaking up?
Well, it seems that information may have actually been true. According to this source, it states that on July 31st, 3 TVXQ Members, specifically Micky Yoochun, Jaejoong, and Xiah Junsu filed an injunction against SM Entertainment in the Seoul Central District Court to remove the "non exclusivity clause" in their contract.

Yunho and Changmin have decided not to file an injunction. Basically in a nutshell, the three of them supposedly had meetings with a Chinese cosmetic company and launched a new cosmetic line called CreBeau. They invested some of their own money and also in turn received some lucrative gifts from the Chinese company as an incentive package for signing up and investing. Some of the rumored gifts includes Micky's Audi R8 and the townhouse for Xiah's parents.
SM Entertainment supposedly got wind of this news and because SM Entertainment has the "exclusivity clause" in their contract, SM Entertainment tried to prevent this from happening. Unhappy with this, and already unhappy that they feel they're being underpaid profit-wise from album sales, you can understand why they're trying to terminate the "exclusivity clause" in their contracts. There's also rumors that if a favorable agreement isn't met, the three will be leaving the group for good.

SM Entertainment via phone to one of the Korean news media outlets stated that they are aware of the situation, the board of directors is having an emergency meeting and are discussing what to do. They'll have an official statement soon.

Update:
Update from the lawyers representing Micky, Jaejoong, and Xiah: The three and the lawyers have been discussing this for over 2 months. They tried to settle this with SM Entertainment through negotiations behind closed doors, but they broke down therefore the injunction. The contracts are for 13 years and the profit splits are 80% to SM Entertainment and 20% to TVXQ (divided by 5 for each member). The three are prepared to go to court and file a lawsuit if the exclusivity clause isn't dropped.

i read this on allkpop and i was like wtf
i hope they don´t break up over money but
i think this was something waithing to happen since they have become
mature older and wiser so sm better watch out and pay them what they
deserve since they work so hard for it
and i think lsm doesn´t want to lose his gold mine they are making big bucks for him ( that bastard)

that would be the most stupid thing DBSK ever did if they disband..think about it, there is no WAY, DBSK will disband..believe me^^ i am 100% sure about this. the worst scenario probably , they leave SM. But i doubt SM will let them leave SM after Tokyo dome and all their success that DBSK had. SM will take everything into a consideration and i believe it will be win-win situation for both. No one can did better than SM did for DBSK, they are good at making a group, YG or JYP are not the one that suitable for DBSK, plus if DBSK go to YG or JYP i doubt what will happen to their no.1 artist , there is no way, the companies can focus for 2 group at the same time. YG with BB plus 2ne1 and JYP with WG and 2PM..DBSK should just open up their own company like rain did..
but some how i really love to see what will happen if DBSK join YG....kekeke it would be fun for me to watch it that is only my imagination

GUYS ! DBSK prolly WON'T break up.
Because they can ALWAYS sign another contract.
Jeez. Think Optimistic.

Just because they are suing SM Entertainment doesn't
really mean they are breaking up. They are JUST leaving
SM Entertainment.

They are not leaving SM (though I wish they would)
they just wanna renew their contracts..since SM benefits way too much.
and if things don't go smoothly, maybe they'll leave..?

The reason why people think they will break up it's
because only Junsu. Micky and JaeJoong wants to file a lawsuit.
Yunho and Changmin aren't (maybe because both have an upcoming drama?)
The split between members makes cassies think they they will break up.

Also, if they ever leave SM ent., a possibility of them breaking up is high.
Remember what happened to ever famous group Shinhwa?
All boybands who signs up a new contract to a
new company usually disband.
But with so many cassies out there, DBSK will do fine with any companies.
(..Still wishing it wouldn't end up like Shinhwa...)

DBSK are SM's money makers. I bet they'll do anything to keep the boys.
But i bet the boys are fed up with it.. i dont blame them.
SM interferes even in their private life.
Hopefully, it will all be resolved soon...

There is another article posted a couple of hours ago in allkpop.
___________________________________________________________
Expert says “very difficult for all 5 members of TVXQ to remain together”

A bad day for fans of the most popular idol group in Korea, Asia and the world. The day started off with rumors of TVXQ/DBSK disbanding, which was followed swiftly by SM Entertainment representatives stating, that they will pretty much do whatever it takes to keep TVXQ together.

This major conflict resulted in Lee Soo Man, owner of SM Entertainment, to fly back home to Korea from his America headquarters, to try and resolve the matter personally. At this time however, there are still no new developments about the progress of the negotiations. There's only speculation and rumors of what's to come

A Music Industry Expert stated, "Usually when an issue like this arises, it's very difficult to come to a resolution. Currently the 5 members of TVXQ are split into two teams. In addition, the animosity that has come about between SM Entertainment and TVXQ, will make it very difficult for all 5 members of TVXQ to remain together."

a fan mailed the lawyer,

-------------------------------------------
"Thank you for the mail.

The contents of the article by Daily Sports have been extremely exaggerated, and I myself am also currently discussing this issue with the reporter.

I, especially, never stated that the only three of the members will be active together. In contrast, there does not exist any ill feelings between the members, and the members wish that the 5 will always remain together.

I will be careful with my words from now. I hope that the fans will continue to support the members.

Sincereley, SangHyuk Im"
