I know I don’t usually post news about Super Junior here but since I’ve already posted about Hankyung’s lawsuit against SM, I might as well post this one too. Besides, this is in a way DBSK related they are fighting for the same thing that JaeChunSu are fighting for and Donghae – my most favorite SuJu member – might be involved in this so of course, I would care about this issue.

Not Just Hangeng; 6 Members Of Super Junior File For Lawsuit Against SM

[Sina Entertainment News] The day before, Hangeng, the only Chinese member of Asia’s super popular group, Super Junior, filed for a termination of his “exclusive contract” with SM Entertainment. According to the latest news from Korea, Hangeng is not the only one who filed the lawsuit. Other Super Junior members have also filed a similar lawsuit, and they include: Lee Teuk, Yesung, Kangin, Eun Hyuk and Donghae. The only reason why news about Hangeng was exposed first, is because of his nationality.

According to the lawsuit, Hangeng has not had any rest in 2 years, causing him to suffer from fatigue, which also resulted in chronic gastritis, illnesses related to his kidney, lumbar disc herniation, as well as a visible decrease in body strength. However, SM Entertainment rejected Hangeng’s requests for rest, and continued to schedule activities for him, which caused Hangeng to suffer a lot of pain.

According to the contents of the lawsuit, since the time of his debut, Hangeng didn’t even have one day of rest per week. For 2 years, Hangeng has continuously done his overseas schedules as well, and had no choice but to continue with his schedules without any rest. In his contract with SM, there are clauses stating that he has to pay the company monetary damages should he be unable to fulfill the schedules arranged for him. Thus, even when he was in poor health, he had no choice but to follow through with his schedules.

Once the news broke out, many fans have expressed the wish for SM and the members to be able to make peace, and make changes to their contracts, as well as expressed hope that Super Junior will not face the threat of disbanding.

I would like to remind everyone that this news is UNCONFIRMED as of now. It’s a report from Sina (Chinese News) which they “claim” to have gotten from Korean sources. I guess we should wait for further articles to come out confirming this but fans of Super Junior should also be ready to accept this should this news be real. After all, Sina was the first to report about Hankyung filing a lawsuit against SM and it turned out to be true.

I know IF this  news is real, Super Junior fans will be in a difficult situation just like what we, DBSK fans are experiencing at present. Having your favorite group divided into 2 is really, really hard and depressing. But all I can say to all ELFs out there who might be reading this, don’t let your belief and love for the SuJu members falter. We, DBSK fans, know how hard and frustrating this could get but believe me when I say that this will only make you and your relationship with SuJu stronger. This is just one of the challenges that your relationship with them has to go through. It is like a test of how far your love and support for Super Junior is. There may be some fans who would be choosing sides on this issue but I hope you could be like majority of us, DBSK fans, who still support and love the our five boys no matter what their decision may be. My advise is to just believe the SuJu members and no one else. Trust them and, as what Cassiopeia’s battle cry says, always keep the faith no matter what happens. :)

    hankyung’s revealed first because of his nationality?hmm…*raises a brow* if this rumor is true,what i can see is,all the ones filing lawsuit against SM are those whom DBSK are closest with.I mean,as much as i know, Donghae is Yunho’s besfriend, Yesung = Jaejoong, Junsu = Eunhyuk while LeeTeuk and Kangin (if i’m not mistaken,he’s pretty close with Changmin) are very close with the boys,, makes sense somewhere.
    looking at the bright side,it’s quite a relief that hankyung wont go through this alone.i’m afraid it’s a bit too much to handle it on his own without his members.*sighs*

    Suju is always no.1..

    wow,,,that’s great!

    I mean at least he’s fighting not alone

    the most important thing is the leader of SJ whose Leeteuk also fights against this lawsuit and Hankyung is the leader in China >>2 leaders

    So, i hope SJ will be there for each other forever, or just when someone has a hard time bout something

    I dont know bout KH’s post,,,i dont know what it’s supposed to mean
    I dont wanna think either in positive or negative way yet,,caz noone is sure about it,,,,he gotta say it first what he’s trying to tell in his cyworld

    Just think about the time that u guys have been working together and when u guys got awards or sth,,,dont let ya frends down SJ,,,
    Go with ya team,, fight with ya team,,i believe that u guys will get through this time really well if u guys go together

    I dont care anyway whatever u guys r gonna do if u guys can get rid of the freaking stupid contract
    I’m just gonna support u guys nomatter what it is gonna happen
    Even u guys cant sing anymore, if u just make some cute, funny or whatever video about SJ,,,,I’m just gonna buy it anyway
    The thought is like more than anything
    “I trust u”

    WTH SME?! a lot of groups have already been disbanded because of the contract and this is STILL going on? first DBSK and now Super Junior. i really really really hope they would shut down, and DBSK and Super Junior will get signed to another company that would treat them with respect and appreciation like they deserve to be.

    cassiopeia + E.L.F = <3
