[TRANS] 091231 tvN ENEWS ‘Blackbox’, Celebrities’ Annual Earnings Ranking Revealed

TVXQ, who is currently in a dispute with their agency, caught the attention of many by having the highest annual earnings this year dispite the unfavorable conditions they are currently in.

TVN ENEWS’ ‘blackbox’ corner that was aired on the 20th ranked the celebrities with the top ten annual earnings this year.

The celebrity with the highest earnings was TVXQ, followed by Rain, Big Bang, Super Junior, Kim Hyun Joon, Go Hyun Jung, Girls’ Generation, Lee Byung Hun, Yoo Jae Seok and Kang Ho Dong.

It was found that TVXQ earned at least 126.4 billion Won (equivalent to approximately 109 million USD) this year when their 90 billion Won earnings from Japanese album sales are taken into account.

However, this news is overshadowed by the fact that TVXQ is currently fighting a legal dispute with their agency SM Entertainment over an ‘unfair contract’ and have even been driven to the brink of a disbandment.

Newsway announcer/reporter Jung Soo Ryang stated, “TVXQ was able to reap such earning regardless of the fact that they are in such unfavorable conditions with the legal dispute,” and “If their had been no legal dispute, they would have earned much more than this amount.”

She also added, “If TVXQ, who has evolved from just a domestic star to a Hallyu star of Asia, cannot overcome these unfortunate conditions and disband, not only will this be a huge loss to our country’s entertainment industry, it will also be a loss at a nationwide scale,” and “I hope to see TVXQ come to a reasonable agreement with their agency and return to the stage in good spirits.”

ENEWS’ ‘Blackbox’ airs every Wednesday and brings experts of many fields to the panel to discuss controversial events of the entertainment industry.

We media were able to see the rehearsal from the monitor screen. The 5 members hardly looked at each other while singing “Stand by U”.

Tohoshinki’s activities in Korea has stopped since Jaejoong (23), Yoochun (23), and Junsu (22) had filed against their Korean management company SM Entertainment regarding their exclusive contract in late July. The five performed together after 3 months’ susupension in “Best Hits Music Festival 2009” at “Kobe World Hall” in November. On this occasion, the 3 members who have filed the suit and Yunho (23) & Changmin (21) traveled on different planes.

Other than the Kouhaku, the five will perform in “Japan Record Award” (TBS) on Dec 30, and also scheduled to have a live performance in the “CDTV SPECIAL! New Year’s Eve Live 2009 → 2010”. Though they have cancelled the fan club meeting scheduled to be held in Janauary, they will release a new single “BREAK OUT!” on January 27. They will also release their first best album on February 17. Their activities afterwards in Japan are not fixed yet.

T/N: There were similar information posted in other sites (from different sources), but since this is from the credible source Mainichi Shimbun (one of the largest daily newspapers in Japan) website, I’ve translated the article again.

[TRANS] 100101 ‘We Want To Keep Doing Our Best!’ – TVXQ

The popular Korean group Tohoshinki, who is in the midst of having break-up rumors, performed on “60th NHK Kouhaku Utagassen” on the last day of the year, and later appeared on TBS’ special program “CDTV SPECIAL! New Year’s Eve Premium Live 2009→2010”. When being asked by MC TAKAHIRO (EXILE) what their aspiration for this year is, Jaejoong stopped a moment and only said, “We want to keep doing our best like last year.”

After the three members of Tohoshinki – Junsu, Jaejoong, and Yoochun – filed a lawsuit to request for a provisional disposition to terminate the exclusive contract with their managing company, there have been rumors of them breaking up floating around. There are also rumors that the members cannot communicate normally and that their actions are being observed. However, in fact, on the rehearsal day of Kouhaku, it has been reported that the three members and Yunho, Changmin returned to their waiting room in two separate groups.

After performing “Stand by U” at Kouhaku, they chose to not answer the press corps’ questions. At CDTV, they only said, “Good evening everyone, we are Tohoshinki” and sang the song which contained a message in its lyrics.

[TRANS] 091229 TVXQ’s Chinese FanClubs Takes Legal Action

It has been confirmed that Chinese fans are planning to take legal action against SM Entertainment and the Chinese sponsoring company for the cancellation of the Shenzhen ‘TVXQ Thrid Asia Tour-MIROTIC’ concert that was to be held on November 21st.

A representative of Chinese TVXQ fansite Baidu BAR said in an e-mail interview that, “We were severely hurt by this event,” and “We could have understood if the concert had been canceled for reasons beyond anyone’s control, but we cannot sit idly by and let these deceptive tricks go,” and stated that they are receiving legal counsel for this case.

The representative highlighted the forged note of confirmation from the members to state that they would participate in the concert and said, “This case includes fraud. This is the thing that we find hardest to accept,” and “We are beginning to take legal action against SM Entertainment and the Chinese sponsor company by asking for Perpetuation of Evidence and other actions.”

They stated, “The Shenzhen concert was set by SM and the Chinese sponsor company without consultation after the three members handed in their provisional disposition request so it was an unfair to the members of TVXQ.”

Regarding the forged signatures, the Chinese fans showed their disappointment by saying, “In the end, SM did not give us a proper answer.” They also directly criticized SM by saying, “They do no respect their singers, hurt their fans and use media play in their favor. Therefore, we will no longer cry to understand or trust such a company.”

They said, “We are fans who support TVXQ and we hope that this cancellation of the concert does not affect the members in a bad way,” and “We will not let the company put all the blame on the members of TVXQ.” They also showed their unwavering support by saying, “We are Chinese fans who grew with TVXQ for six years and we believe in them.” They also stressed that, “We hope that this concert does not put any more stress on the members who are already strained from the legal dispute.”

They also said, “We hope that people, like the media, do not get fooled by rumors and partial explanations that switches black and white and make the wrong assumptions. We hope that they judge this event thinking of what is the real problem of this whole situation.” They also said, “We hope that the public loves them and keeps a fair and understanding eye on them.”

The Chinese fans also said, “We are not strong, and we lack experience but we will unite and let the truth be revealed.”
