[Pic] 100419 Hero Jaejoong makes successful acting debut in Japan

Hero Jaejoong of Korean idol group TVXQ has made a successful acting debut in a Japanese TV series which premiered on Fuji TV last week.

According to statistics released by a local research firm, the first episode of drama “Hard to Say I Love You” scored a 11.9 percent viewership rating, coming in second behind Asahi TV’s popular crime drama “Omiya-san” with 15.4 percent.

“You”, which airs every Thursday evening at 10 p.m., is a story of friendship between five young men and women who became acquaintances through Twitter, a popular social networking and micro-blogging service around the world.

Hero Jaejoong appears as a Korean medical equipment salesman alongside top Japanese actors Eita and Ueno Juri of smash hit TV series “Nodame Cantabile”.

Hero, whose real name is Kim Jaejoong, debuted in 2004 as part of five-member boy band TVXQ. The group became one of the most phenomenal K-pop acts in the country and throughout Asia, selling numerous records and recently making history in the Japanese music scene.

TVXQ has been making headlines as of late for announcing that they will no longer be working in Japan as a group and that the members will go their separate ways to pursue individual careers.

The band had officially stopped working as a group in Korea since last July due to a legal dispute between three of its members — Xiah Junsu, Hero Jaejoong and Micky Yoochun — and talent agency SM Entertainment over their 13-year exclusive contract.

The three members had asked the court to nullify their contract with SM, claiming that their contract period was “too long”, and the court had ruled in favor of them, ordering provisional disposition of the contract.

However, the legal battle heated up again when SM filed an objection against the court’s decision and sued the three singers for KRW 2.2 billion won, demanding financial compensation for damages the agency allegedly suffered from the members’ investment in cosmetics business and their cancelled concert in China.

Last Thursday, Xiah, Hero and Micky announced through their Japanese management agency AVEX that they had formed a new group through which they will be pursuing their music careers.

[Trans] 100507 Yunho’s Note To Everysing+ Fanaccount
Today, I went to SM to “accidentally encounter” oppa, but it was unsuccessfully
I only saw Sungmin, Kyuhyun, and Heechul

Later, me and my friends went to everysing, and realized that the arrangements had a small change to it
DBSK’s official stall isn’t up anymore, so there were only albums being sold

I didn’t see this signature before, and judging from the color of the ink, it feels as if it was just signed~
And it was placed in the front!

To Everysing…

Don’t always say we have to be happy, you guys have to be really really happy too~!!

[Trans] 100507 TVXQ 3 Members Vs SM Hearing ‘On Parallel Sides’
TVXQ 3 Members “The unfairness of the contract is grave” vs SM “The way we treat TVXQ is not bad compared to other agencies”

Three members of TVXQ (Xiah Junsu, YoungWoong Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun) and SM Entertainment had their first hearing today regarding an objection to the verdict on a contract suspension injunction that was made last year, and were unsuccessful in closing the gap between their conflicting stances.

The legal representatives of the three members of TVXQ and SM met at the Seoul District Courts at 5 p.m. on the 7th to state their stances on the lawsuit made by SM Entertainment regarding an objection to the contract suspension injunction verdict.

This hearing was held after SM filed for the lawsuit on April 12th as an objection to the partial acceptance verdict made by the Courts last year.

At the hearing, SM’s representative stated, “Compared to other agencies in Korea, TVXQ’s income division is not unfair,” and emphasized that TVXQ’s income division was not a pressing issue in the exclusive contract.

The representative also strongly questioned the three members’ action of signing a separate contract with their Japanese agency AVEX although only the contract suspension injunction, not the actual lawsuit, had been partially accepted by the Courts.

On the other hand, the three members’ representative stated, “The length and the income division section of the exclusive contract between SM and TVXQ is so unfair that the situation is very grave.”

The judge in charge of the hearing (Judge Choi Sung Joon) questioned both sides of the possibility of a settlement, but no groundbreaking outcome came of it.

The Courts asked both sides whether a settlement could be made if the contract was fixed but received different answers.

When the Courts asked both sides if a settlement would be possible if the Courts shortened the length of the exclusive contract and if the income division was made more equal SM’s representative said “Yes, a settlement would be possible,” but the three members’ side gave a skeptical answer and said, “The three members have lost their faith in SM and they think negatively of the prospect of working with the agency again.”

However, the three members’ side stated near the end of the hearing that, “If SM’s desires for a settlement are sincere, then I will talk to the three members and will report back to the Courts.”

On the other hand, Kim Young Min and Nam So Young attended the hearing as SM and SM Japan’s representatives respectively but none of the members of TVXQ attended. The Courts will examine all files submitted by both sides till the end of this month and reach a verdict regarding SM’s objection to the contract suspension injunction verdict.

[Trans] 100507 Seki Megumi, “JeJung is the moodmaker”

Q. What is your impression on JeJung?

A. He’s the moodmaker. Just one word by JeJung can make everyone laugh and feel energetic. Not only that, sometimes he also shows us his forceful and powerful eyes… there are times that he makes some observations, and during those times, he looks really manly. He’s someone who is loved by everyone, but at times when he shows us that expression, I realize that JeJung and Doctor do have something in common.

[Trans] 100506 SM Vs TVXQ 3 Members’ Lawsuit Begins, First Hearing On The 7th

The lawsuit between TVXQ members, YoungWoong Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun and Xiah Junsu, and SM Entertainment will begin on May 7th.

SM Entertainment took action against the three members of TVXQ and filed for an objection to the verdict on the contract suspension injunction as well as a verification of the continued existence of the exclusive contract. The first hearing for this lawsuit will be held at the Seoul District Courts on May 7th in the afternoon.

On this day, only the legal representatives of the two side will be attending the hearing. As this is a civil suit, the three members will not be participating in the trial.

The three members of TVXQ filed for a contract suspension injunction against SM Entertainment on July 31st, 2009 to the Seoul District Courts and were rewarded with a partial acceptance verdict on October 27th.

At the time, the Courts stated, “SM can no longer sign contracts regarding any TVXQ activities without notifying the members beforehand. SM must also not interfere with any individual activities the members of TVXQ wish to pursue.”

Then, SM filed a lawsuit against the three members on April 12th, 2010 objecting the verdict to the contract suspension injunction and asking for a verification of the continued existence of the exclusive contract. SM also called for the three members to pay 2.2 billion Won in compensation.

SM’s representative stated, “After the injunction, we have tried hard to continue TVXQ’s existence so we have kept this lawsuit aside. However, as the three members did not give an official statement regarding future TVXQ activities and as TVXQ’s Japanese activities were suspended, we have decided to go ahead with the lawsuit.”
