I’ve been out of the country for 5 days and I wasn’t able to access the internet (basically the reason for my long absence from the blogging world) and this news has been one of the best news that greeted me when I got back last Friday night. I just hope this court ruling will help JYJ to be able to appear on Korean broadcasts again.
110224 Courts State, “SM Must Pay 20 Million Won For Each Interference in JYJ’s Activities”
The Seoul District Courts have decided to lay down a mandatory compensation injunction to SM Entertainment for the interference of JYJ’s activities.
According to the official documents released by JYJ’s agency, the Courts laid down an indirect mandatory injunction that states, “SM Entertainment must not interfere with JYJ’s activities in the entertainment industry, doing so will result in a 20 million Won compensation fee per offense.
The Courts verdict explained their reason as they stated, “We have laid down this indirect mandatory injunction against SM Entertainment as it has been recognized that there is a possibility that they will interfere with JYJ’s activities in the entertainment industry in the future as they held a press conference on November 2nd, 2009 demanding that JYJ follow the exclusive contract and as they sent a certification of contents to Warner Music Korea on October 2nd, 2010 demanding that they halt the production and distribution of JYJ’s Worldwide album, regardless of the fact that the Courts laid down the verdict to accept the injunction to suspend the validity of their exclusive contract on October 27th, 2009.”
The Courts have already sided with JYJ before on the 17th, laying down the verdict, “The Courts dismiss both the formal objection and exclusive contract suspension injunction filed by SM against Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu, as the exclusive contract between SM and JYJ is invalid,” and “SM must not interfere in JYJ’s independent activities in the entertainment industry.”
C-JeS Entertainment’s CEO Baek Chang Joo stated, “There are still many mountains we must cross. JYJ are caught up in a frustrating situation in which they must overcome countless obstacles other than those stated by the Courts in order to approach the public. We hope that the public and fans take interest in this situation and help us create a more reasonable and developmental entertainment system.”Source: [hankyung+Yuaerubi]
