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.”

SM Entertainment’s lawsuit against TVXQ trio begins May 7thBack in April, SM Entertainment filed a lawsuit against TVXQ / DBSK / Tohoshinki members Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun and Xiah Junsu (Jaechunsu). The first trial hearing for this will be held on May 7th at the Seoul District Courts. The members (defendants) won’t be present as the presence of both defendant and plaintiff isn’t required in civil case hearings.
In this lawsuit, SM Entertainment basically asked the court to:
1. Revoke their disposition where they allowed the three members to act freely while the case is under way,
2. Confirm that the contract between SM and the three members is valid, and
3. Make the three members pay 2.2 Billion₩ (around $2,000,000) in damages incurred for the cancellation of the Shenzhen concert.
An SM Entertainment representative stated, “After the trio filed their injunction we did everything to continue TVXQ as a group so we tried to avoid the lawsuit. However, with the recent suspension of TVXQ’s activities in Japan and the uncertainty of TVXQ’s future and their activities, we’ve decided to pursue this course of action.”
