SM Entertainment, an agency locked in a dispute with a few of the members of TVXQ, has called for these members to pay 2.2 billion Won (approximately 2 million USD) in compensation for damages while the three members’ side has stated that they were expecting this action and were calmly preparing against it.
According to the Seoul District Courts on the 14th, SME filed for a lawsuit to confirm the continued existence of the contract and an objection to the verdict of the Exclusive Contract Suspension Injunction against Micky Yoochun, Xiah Junsu, and YoungWoong Jaejoong.
SM stated, “The three members started this lawsuit only for ‘money’,” and “After the verdict for the injunction was given, the three members avoided their set schedules which caused considerable damage to the other members. We call for a compensation for damages of 2.2 billion Won for the cancellation of the Shenzhen concert and the fees for the cosmetic advertisements.”
In refutation to this, Lawyer Lim Sang Hyuk of Sejong Law Firm, who is in charge of the three members, stated that, “This was something we’ve been expecting,” and “We should be the ones filing for compensation for damages. We will calmly form our rebuttal against this lawsuit.”
After learning of the lawsuit on the 13th, Lawyer Lim stated, “Since we saw this coming and prepared for it, we will carry on calmly.”
It can be said that the legal dispute between the three members of TVXQ and SME are about to become more heated.
