TVXQ's LAWYER MAIL

"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"

Phone Interview with TVXQ’s Legal Representative

Here's the report of Daily News that Hilary posted...

The following is phone interview with legal representation of the three members of TVXQ, Im Sang-hyuk from SEJONG law firm:

- What is the core of conflict?

“The irrational exclusive contract. If we review the contract standard from Fair Trade Comission (FTC), the longest duration of a contract is not to exceed 7 years. Of course, if the singer themselves who choose to develop the contract, it might be an exception, but some of given terms in TVXQ’s FTC case, the proposed standards are so unfair in many ways. It is the best way to realize these points quickly than later”

- Also the cosmetics enterprise which three member and their parents running became known as one axis of the conflict.

“The cosmetics company could be one of the reasons for the discord but not what ultimately convinced the three members to go to court. We have examined the official statement from SM this morning and noticed that SM had painted the cosmetics company as the cause in a negative light on the surface of their statement. If they think that the additional business of the members is the legal case, then it’s a mistake.”

- There’s a conclusion appearing about the crisis that the activities of 3 members who file the lawsuit will be stopped?

(I cant understand this one in details, but basically he said that the members would continue if their disposition is approved, and he hoped it would be soon. The court’s desicion is now in the middle of the most important and difficult variables and he had goal to finish the case within 6 months.)

- The possibility of winning?

“To see it on the bright side… SM Entertainment has in the past been ordered by the Korea FTC several times to reform contracts for violating the standard contract limits. TVXQ are now appealing for the parts that are different from the FTC terms.

- Before taking the legal action, it’s said that the members did not try to make consultation with the agency before.

“We have tried to solve the problem through dialogue. Members had even met directly with the agency. While I was also trying to resolve the problem through multiple channels. However, the agency ignored members opinions, therefore a legal appeal finally made. The members are very sorry to the fans as well.

- What is the conflict regarding to cosmetic issue?

“Should an agency has a fight with artists who are having family’s personal investment? Other celebrities are common to have additional business. Moreover, the three members had already made consultation process with agency representative, Kim Young-Min before they started the cosmetic business, but we feel betrayed then as the company told another story later on.

- TVXQ has already taken the step, but eventually dismantled

“We have already tried many ways, but all the efforts finally bring us here. We’re not too hasty to be in this position. We create legal procedure first before we present every single new plan. The 5 people based their activities together in SM Entertainment, therefore it will not be easy to be in our situation now. “

- Is there a plan for press conference?

It’s necessary but as for now, we don’t have any plan yet. The members are really sorry now to the fans. Actually we want to proceed this case undisturbed.

Contact Me If You Want To Be A Star! (Yunho excerpt)

[Contact me if you want to be a Star!] (1) SM Entertainment

-part edited out-

Asia super group TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho auditioned with his friends in 2000 for the title of ‘Best Dancer’ in the Best Teenager Audition/Competition and ended up on the road of a singer. At the time, when a judge asked “Can you do any other dances?” Yunho asked, “Can I take my shoes off and dance?” and received high marks for his passion for dancing that didn’t seem to end. Actor Ara also partook in the ‘Best Dancer’ part of the Best Teenager Audition/Competition in Gwangju with five of her friends. But Ara stood out because of her white complexion and trendy look and captured the attention of the judges. She also sealed her chance of debuting as a celebrity when she received high marks for her ability to think fast during an interview even though she was very young.

-part edited out-

Q: Please tell us in detail of the SM Trainee System

A: We can say that our casting, training, producing and marketing systems rival those of America and Japan. Casting is done in various ways in many cities and our training is altered to fit each person’s abilities and talents. We give trainig for singing, dancing, acting and speaking other languages and we have debuted all of our current stars using our own producing and marketing systems. Regarding BoA and TVXQ, we are going for a global approach with both capturing the Japanese market, which is the second largest music industry in the world, through a global management system. They are living proofs of SM’s superiority.

Q: What kind of stars is SM looking for?

A: We started the off with the teenage market with H.O.T. and defined the term ‘Hallyu Singer’ with our appearances in China. We’ve made BoA and TVXQ role models of global management. We are looking for and will be debuting stars who will be one step ahead of social trends and who will take SM one step further.

Nikkan Sports Daily: JUNSU’s Interview

Junsu, the one in charge of comedy

He was so happy that he cried at Budokan Hall

Being in charge of comedy, he bring smiles by creating a warm atmosphere, Junsu “Actually I wanted to do this last year already, but because of saying cold gags in front of the members and on television programmes, I couldn’t take it back. (A/N: had to continue)


Behind that smile, he has shed a lot of tears.

“When we just came to Japan, it was very tiring to sing in Japanese because we were not used to it. We also needed translators when we were interviewed, so we were all very nervous.”

To improve their Japanese, and catch up with the pace of things, shorten the gap between the fans and them.
“My mind was focused on the Budokan Hall’s stage, for our fans love we worked hard, the feeling was good. The first time that I cried because of happiness in Japan was at the Budokan hall.”
Actually, coming to Japan was already hard from the beginning, but they were not afraid and practiced hard even before they debuted.

“My voice change took 3 years.”

I went to over 10 hospitals for check ups but they couldn’t find a reason to it. Our debut was canceled. It felt I had no chance to continue singing, I cried everyday…”
Dreams of performing on the stage were fulfilled when the news came of the formation of Dong Bang Shin Ki.

“Even though my throat wasn’t cured yet, if I didn’t grab this chance, my life would have come to a close (in singing)
I couldn’t let that happen! That provided me the strength and hope. From that time on, my voice slowly recovered. It’s incredible. It was like a miracle!”

Even though he faced a bitter past, he still carries a smile

Behind that smile is a strong will.
From 3 years ago, he has controlled himself from eating after six in the evening.
“This is so as to have a good body condition after waking up in the morning, it’s also good for the skin!”

To give the fans the best stage ever
“Budokan Hall and Tokyo Dome still makes my heart beat quickly. To be able to come here is thanks to the fans support.
We will continue to work hard!”

- To you, what is TVXQ’s existence?
Always by my side, no matter what, they’re just like my brothers that will always be by my side.

- If you weren’t in TVXQ?
I will be an athelete. I love soccer players and baseball players.

- Specialities?
Soccer, I loved soccer from young and wanted to be a soccer player.

- Favourite singer?
Ken Hirai. I love his voice when he sings love songs.

- Good and Bad points?
I’m good in sports. I’m good in dancing and anything to do with flexibility of the body. My bad points is my sleeping habits. Because of that, I take very long to arrange the bed sheets in the morning.” (A/N: meaning he kicks around and all the stuff)

Fans Fight Back, "Disbandment Fears Are Just Rumors". They say, "All they are doing is fixing the unlawful clauses,"

They say, "All they are doing is fixing the unlawful clauses, they are not disbanding."

Is TVXQ Infinite Challenge? "TVXQ and their fans will be together forever."

Popular group TVXQ's members Micky Yoochun, YoungWoong Jaejoong, and Xiah Junsu filed a Exclusive Contract Validity Suspension and Provisional Disposition Request Form against their agency on the 31st.

Because of this, doubts of the group staying together after the trial were raised, but the fans, including fan club Cassiopeia, fought back and stated that these doubts were only "rumors with no credible sources."

The fans stated that, "Just because they filed this lawsuit, doesn't mean they are disbanding. And it was also wrong to state that the dispute with the company was because of conflicts between the members and the cosmetic company."

Also, they said, "They did not file this lawsuit because they wanted to disband, they filed it because they wanted to fix the unlawful clauses in their exclusive contract. The only reason they are capable of using such a strong method is because they are TVXQ."

The fans finished by stating that, different from HOT and SES, TVXQ would not disband easily.

SM Entertainment's Lee Soo Man returned to Korea from the States as soon as he heard of the 'TVXQ lawsuit' and it was found that TVXQ (U-Know Yunho, Choikang Changmin. YoungWoong Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun, Xiah Junsu) will follow their original schedule and partake in the the 'a-nation' performance on the 1st and the 'SM Town Live 09' on the 16th.

Jaejoong and W-INDS Keita Tachibana



An update after 2 months. Sorry for the wait!

Until the tour ended, I didn’t have intention to update anything, but because I already promised to write an update during the LIVE, well, then I update (laughs)

But there are people who haven’t seen the MC’s yet, so when all the lives are over..

Here’s a close friend of mine,

The hot handsome guy with skillful singing and has the same age as me,
JEJUNG.

He’s a person that seems to be flawless.
He’s a really good person.

While my feeling of appreciation of each and every person around me piling up, I feel so touched.

I don’t think of him as someone who is currently ranked as the 23rd or 24th handsome guy. (laughs)
He’s a friend to whom I can talk about music passionately

When we start talking about singing, he’s the type of guy that gets excited. (laughs)

The picture is taken when the two of us went to Tokyo Tower together. (laughs)

When I was thinking about the interesting things that we’ve done together, I thought about when we went to Tokyo Tower. (laughs)

It was so interesting that I wanted to post about it, so I did.

When I feel like updating, I’ll update sometime.
Look forward to it.

Title: a-nation Kumamoto

Today, my summer started!

In the middle of it, there were some troubles that made everyone worry, so I'm using this space to apologize.

I won't spoil anything, so I won't write the details, but this was the feel of the location~

Every year, a-nation goes to many different places, but the feeling of exhilaration changes with each place.

The next live is at Ehime.

Last year was memorable so we won't lose out to the heat and try our very best.

Kanjani8 Mentions Tohoshinki in Their Concert

Was reading some blog reports on Kanjani8 (a band from Johnny’s Ent) having their latest concert in Kyocera Dome. It was mentioned that during the MC, they talked about Tohoshinki. I read Yokoyama Yuu even commented that they all look the same/they all look alike and they even parodied the gags that Tohoshinki does. This was done in jest though. Kanjani8 also commented later on that to Tohoshinki, Kanjani8 must look alike as well.

This supposedly happened during the July 29 Concert at the Kyocera Dome. Tried searching for an English fan report that mentions the same thing so here is one.

DBSK's Lawyer's Statement to Fans



As said by DBSK's Lawyer:

I apologized,

Right now, the news reported weren't what I had said, they (reporters) would be spreading 100 sentences when I had merely said one.

5 of them really wanted to be together, and they had never thought of living with only three persons.

To be letting the fans worry, I felt very guilty, and I hope that all of you can encourage them more.

TVXQ's Japanese Contract

It has been confirmed that three members of TVXQ, YoungWoong Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun and Xiah Junsu, have filed for a Exclusive Contract Validity Suspension and Provisional Disposition Request against SM Entertainment and have also filed for a Preservation of Evidence Request.

The Preservation of Evidence Request refers to, "Any account books, contracts, receipts, transfer slips or any other documents that will aid in calculating the exact income and expenditure of the requester," and this was done to calculate the exact amount of money TVXQ earns.

There is more controversey to come as a statement was released that the members of TVXQ, till now, have never received information about the contents of their Japanese contract.

In 2005, TVXQ signed a contract with Avex Entertainment, one of the largest agencies in Japan, through SM Entertainment and have been working with both entertainment agencies ever since.

However, till now, the members of TVXQ have no idea what kind of contract the two agencies formed, and how their income is being divided in Japan.

A representative of the law firm that is helping the three members had a phone conversation with this reporter and stated, "Ever since TVXQ started their activities in Japan, they have never been given any information about how their income is divided or what their contract consists of."

He also said, "We have tried numerous times to tell the agencies that what they are doing is unlawful and tried to convince them to show TVXQ the contract, but both agencies have been ignoring us," and "The members have been diligently working for this company without even knowing exactly what kind of contract they are under."

The Sejong law firm lawyer who is in charge of this lawsuit informed reporters in an interview of the problems regarding unfair division of income and complete honesty with the members and also stated that "We have not discarded the notion of filing for compensation later on."

Avex Entertainment, who is in charge of all of TVXQ's Japanese activities, wrote on their ofiicial website on August 1st and stated that TVXQ will continue on with their activities regardless of the current lawsuit.

"The TVXQ Situation" - 4 Articles

090802 TVXQ, They Cannot Disband!, A vast majority agree with the statement that TVXQ cannot disband now.

TVXQ, they cannot disband!

TVXQ's Micky Yoochun, YoungWoong Jaejoong and Xiah Junsu have filed for a Exclusive Contract Validity Suspension and Provisional Disposition Request and have had people speculating a disbandment of the group. Right now, however, the opinion that TVXQ should be preserved and not disbanded, voiced by SM, the members and the fans, is gaining a lot of support. [cont.]

SM stated on August 1st that TVXQ is a representative group of, not only the members or SM, but of Korea and Asia as a whole and they must fulfill that by continuing on with their activities as a group. It could be seen clearly that SM would stop any notion of a disbandment.

They have gone into finding a resolution for this dispute with Lee Sooman returning to Korea as soon as he heard the news. The key to fixing this dispute is how much Lee Sooman is willing to listen to the members and how much he is willing to concede to the members' demands.

He has been noted to be very disappointed with the fact that many are seeing Micky Yoohcun, YoungWoong Jaejoong and Xiah Junsu's lawsuit against their agency as a means of breaking away from the agency and disbanding.

When lawyer Lim Sang-hyuk, who is representing the three members in this lawsuit, releases their official statement on the 3rd, the exact details of the lawsuit will be revealed. But as of now, the three members have voiced their opinions that they truly want to stay together as the five members of TVXQ and have never thought of going off as a group of three as rumors have implied.

This means that if conflicts about the cosmetic company and the exclusive contract are resolved through a compromise, there will be no chance of the group disbanding; even a small step will suffice in this.

The three members' willingness to participate in the SM Town Concert on the 16th and the numerous A-Nation performances shows that there are no conflicts amongst the members that are big enough to cause worries or doubts and have significantly slowed down fears circulating about a disbandment.

The efforts of fans who wish to keep TVXQ as it is can be seen everywhere. On Daum Agora, a petition that was created to keep TVXQ as it is has already gained 13,000 signatures in one day. There are even talks of silent protests. However, some fans are saying that too much involvement from the fans may in fact hurt TVXQ's lawsuit and have warned other fans to just wait and watch quietly.

There is a growing concern that too much attention on TVXQ may continue on to create rumors that will make the entire process more complicated than it should be.

There have been rumors that there is a deep rift between Micky Yoochun, YoungWoong Jaejoong and Xiah Junsu's side and U-Know Yunho and Choikang Changmin's side and that the dispute between the three members and their agency ever since last April has become so irreperable that there is no hope for a solution. However, these rumors are only rumors and will only create more misunderstandings between the members and the agency and will only become a hindrance, not a helper.

The K-pop industry has been watching this sitation with concern, and many have stated that they wish this situation will end well and cut the continuous cycle of the disbandment of groups because of disputes between celebrities and their agencies that causes a lot of pain to the fans.

Many Asian fans are watching the situation closely to see if Hallyu group TVXQ, a group that has gathered countless numbers of fans across Korea, Japan, China, Thailand and other Asian countires, will be able to bounce back from the disbandment fears, their first in five years, and shine brighter than ever.

090802 The Three Members Will Confer Tonight, TVXQ returns to Korea, "We will continue on with our planned schedule

Idol group 'TVXQ', who are amidst a disbandment speculation, returned to Korea on August 2nd around three o'clock in the afternoon through Kimpo Airport. They finished their Japanese performance yesterday and hurried back to Korea. There were rumors that the group would arrive in Korea divided into two groups, but TVXQ smashed those rumors by entering Korea with all five members together and no signs of strains between them. [cont.]

However, their activities after arrival are split. Micky Yoochun, Xiah Junsu and YoungWoong Jaejoong, who have filed for a Exclusive Contract Validity Suspension and Provisional Disposition Request against SM Entertainment, will be holding a conference tonight with their team. Sejong law firm, who is in charge of the three members' case, stated that "The three members, along with their parents, will be meeting with lawyers to talk about future actions."

According to lawyer Lim Sang-hyuk of Sejong, TVXQ's future activities will be done together, yet apart. Since the already planned performances are promises to the fans, those will still be done. However, the new activities that have not been confirmed will have to be conferred about with the members to see if all of them will participate or some of them will participate.

Lawyer Lim Sang-hyuk stated that, "They think of the promise they made to their fans as the most important thing right now. With reference to the performances outside of Korea, those are all promises they made to their fans so those will continue regardless of this case." and also said, "The performances on the 8th in Ehime, 22~23rd in Tokyo, 29~30th in Osaka and the tour will continue on with all five members on one stage."

However, the activities in Korea are undecided. It is highly likely for the members to be divided into a group of 2 and a group of 3. Lawyer Lim said, "We have asked SM Entertainment to tell us what they have planned for TVXQ future activities," and "When we get the schedule, Micky Yoochun, Xiah Junsu and YoungWoong Jaejoong will discuss it with the law firm to decide upon anything."

Also, Sejong has pinpointed SM Entertainment's unlawful contracts as the cause of this lawsuit. Sejong stated, "There are no strains between the members. The cosmetic company is not a big issue either," and "But SM has taken the focus away from the real issue by pointing out the cosmetic company. The core of this problem is SM's unlawful contracts, and they filed this lawsuit to fix this."

090802 TVXQ Disbandment? It's Different From The Past!, SM states, TVXQ must continue with their activities

Group TVXQ's YoungWoong Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun, and Xiah Junsu filed for a Exclusive Contract Validity Suspension and Provisional Disposition Request against their agency SM Entertainment and sparked rumors of disbandmnet. However, it can be seen that the only thing we can do is wait and see to know of the outcome. [cont.]

Lee Sooman returned to Korea to speak directly with the members, and SM Entertainment has stated that, "TVXQ is a group that represents not only Korea, but all of Asia. Therefore, all their activities must continue as planned." These actions suggest that SM's main focus is to find a solution, not to cause a disbandment of the group and it can be said that it is difficult for the lawsuit to transform into the disbandment of TVXQ.

Also, the three members have stated that they will keep their promise to their fans and participate in the Japanese performances and the SM Town Live 09 Concert that had already been set, and have been gaining support as many believe that the three are aiming for a fix of their original contract, not a complete separation from SM.

On a side note, in TVXQ's fan club 'Cassiopeia''s Daum cafe, one fan stated that SM is using the 'three members' cosmetic company' to remove the fault away from the agency and create conflict between the members as it had done with HOT.

Although HOT, a group that used to be under SM Entertainment, was garnering huge popularity in Korea and abroad, such as China, they suddenlt disbanded in 2001 for unclear reasons.

090802 Reasons Why The 'TVXQ Situation' Must End Well

The Korean music industry is in a muddle due to the current 'TVXQ Situation.' There are rumors of disbandmnet and rumors that TVXQ will come out of this a newly improved group; the vast number of predictions and rumors are getting muddled up in the minds of K-pop fans. However if there's one thing for sure, it is that TVXQ cannot fall now.

We can see the reasons for this at a domestic-foreign level. [cont.]

# Domestic reasons - Don't steal the dreams and hopes of the young fans who are all living in a difficult generation

Let's look inside of our country first.
Amongst the idol groups in Korea, there is no group that can follow TVXQ when it comes to garnering fans. Many fans are hoping for their success and improvement. TVXQ's failure is their failure, TVXQ's disbandment will only lead to the fans' dreams being shattered. Considering the fact that the vast majority of TVXQ fans are teenagers, TVXQ cannot fall now. TVXQ must get back on their feet and move on if they wish to preserve the hopes and dreams that their fans keep deep in their hearts.

TVXQ must know what to do for their fans who have gone through as much as the group has.


# Foreign reasons - Are they just going to let the best Hallyu group fall?

What about outside of Korea?
TVXQ is now undisputably a global brand. They are no longer an 'internal brand.' To grow as a global brand, they must show leadership in domestic and foreign markets. In the foreign markets, TVXQ has already been labeled as a Hallyu force to be reckoned with.

To reach such a level of success, TVXQ has worked extremely hard till now. They stayed in Japan for more than one year and started from the bottom all the way up.
They made themselves be known to Japanese fans by riding on the subway, and slept four hours everyday so they could star in all of Japan's TV programs, and worked extremely hard to be accepted by the Japanese public. They knew of the 'bread of tears,' and knew that they had to work extremely hard to be known in a foreign country. Now they are the best Hallyu group in Japan. 8 in every 10 Japanese people know who they are.
Now they can 'harvest the fruits' of their hard work. But if they fall and separate now, what becomes of the hard work and tears they suffered through?

Right now, there is a dire need for more Hallyu stars in the Korean entertainment business. They need to protect the fast-falling Hallyu Wave, and open up new doors to foreign markets. But to do so, the need a 'ticket power' who is accepted by foreigners as well as the Korean people.

# TVXQ no longer belongs to one person. TVXQ belongs to everyone.

TVXQ does not belong to one person, nor does TVXQ belong to one agency. The group is now Korea's TVXQ, and Asia's TVXQ. One person cannot sacrifice the majority for their own personal reasons. TVXQ's agency SM must now do their share by giving things that should have been given, but weren't and having heartfelt discussions with TVXQ to protect our TVXQ.

We are all waiting anxiously for 'Global Brand' TVXQ's 'New Chapter'.

There is no limit to the size of the picture.

Where to send: [email protected]
