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. :)

I just thought you guys might be interested with this news (especially Super Junior fans). Looks like SM’s most feared consequence of the whole JaeChunSu lawsuit against them is finally coming to reality. Another SM artist – Hankyung,  the only Chinese member of Super Junior – filed for termination of his contract with SM. More or less, this is similar to what JaeChunSu want to happen.

Exclusive: Hangeng Files For Termination Of Contract With SM

T/N: Translating this because it might turn out to be relevant to the TVXQ case in the long run.

According to Korean news sources, Sina reports that Hangeng from Super Junior, one of Asia’s top idol groups, have applied with the Seoul Central District Court for the termination of his ‘exclusive contract’ with SM Entertainment. This is another bomb that dropped on SM Entertainment since the 3 members of TVXQ, Park Yoochun, Kim Jaejoong and Kim Junsu filed to terminate their contracts in July this year.

In 2001, Hangeng was chosen out of 3000 participants for the “H.O.T China” auditions held by SM Entertainment based on his looks and talent in dancing. After years of training in singing, dancing, acting, instruments and languages, Hangeng debuted as the only Chinese member of Super Junior in 2005, and became the first Chinese to officially debut in South Korea. In April 2008, he was appointed the leader of sub-group SJ-M and began activities in China. Due to his outstanding work, he played an important role in aiding SM in breaking into the China market.

Amongst the youth and media, Hangeng has very high EQ and speaking abilities, and his ‘sunshine’ and hardworking image left a deep impression. Before this, there were many speculations, and even expectations, that he might go solo. His lawyer has expressed that the full details of the case cannot be revealed yet. However, according to the informant, it might be because there are interference to his solo work progress, and thus resulted in his unhappiness with SM Entertainment.

Up until now, no definite statement of what reasons of why Hankyung wants his contract to be terminated is released yet. But I guess for someone as shy, reserved and patient as Hankyung to go this far, maybe has valid reasons. Maybe SM was doing something that he “swallow” anymore, just like what happened to JaeChunSu. But that’s only my guess. Let’s wait for Hankyung’s official statement. Meanwhile, SM has released a statement saying that they will try to talk to Hankyung and “solve” this whole issue. All I can say is: WHATEVER.

I know I sound cruel by saying this but why am I actually HAPPY to hear this news? I guess it’s because I’m glad that little by little, the “oppressed” (SM artists)  are beginning to have the courage to stand for themselves. JaeChunSu’s courage to be the first to take a stand against SM sure did give the other artists the “push” they need to fight for their rights. Now, all I’m waiting is for the other SM artists especially Yunho and Changmin to do the same. I hope that will happen very soon.

Anyway, I just hope E.L.Fs and the other Super Junior members would support Hankyung (although seems like Kyuhyun has a different opinion). This will be very tiring and pressuring for Hankyung especially since he’s doing this alone. JaeChunSu are fighting as three and yet they still look so stressed so I can only imagine how hard this will be for him should this continue on to a lawsuit. Even if the other members do not join him in this, I hope at least they give him the moral support he needs. And the E.L.Fs, support and protect Hankyung because we all know that should this end up in court, SM would do anything to ruin him. More than anything, Hankyung needs the support of the fans. Don’t let him down.

Below is an excerpt of Super Junior’s interview after winning at the Golden Disk Awards 2009 where Leeteuk was asked some questions about his DBSK dongsaengs. I personally think the “tone” or the way the questions were constructed was a bit rude to Super Junior since someone who reads it (especially people who tends to over analyze sometimes) would think that the interviewer is implying something. I don’t know if you get what I mean but I won’t elaborate on this thing too much. All I can say is that I love both DBSK and Super Junior. I believe they both have their own strengths and they are both hardworking groups who deserve all the love and recognition they are getting from the fans.

ANYWAY, let’s look at the bright side of this interview. From what Teukie said, we can sense his care for his dongsaengs. I’m so glad that our boys have friends like the Super Junior members. DongBangJunior is the best! :D

Super Junior Interview After Golden Disc Awards: “I feel bad for TVXQ disbanding crisis”

– only translate the part that is related to TVXQ –

Lee-teuk “I feel bad for TVXQ disbanding crisis”

– To be able to finally escape from the shadow of TVXQ, is that maybe the reason of your tears?

“TVXQ might have debuted a little earlier than us, but when it comes to age, they’re my dongsaengs. In fact, TVXQ is a subject at which SuJu has been so envious. Watching the feature of them jumping as the best group in the world only from aside, there was a thought ‘when will our turn be?”

– In relation to that, do you really care about the disbanding crisis of TVXQ?

“Sure, it hurts me too. They’re all my good dongsaengs. Especially Junsu. I’ve been knowing him for 3-4 years since our high school trainee, he has been a friend and a hoobae who shared happiness and sorrow with me. He consulted to me when he faced a difficult problem. I feel that we’re the same and don’t have much difference. I really want them to compromise their hearts to each other.

Some behind the scenes and NGs of DBSK, Super Junior, and SNSD during the filming of their Hi, Seoul CF. Our DBSK boys are just so random. I was LMAO of Yunho’s NG. Is he already sleepy or what?! Even Junsu can’t help but laugh at him. Hahaha! And OMG, I haven’t seen my Donghae in ages! My fishy is still so cute and adorable! I miss him so much! I really need to watch more recent SuJu videos because I don’t seem to know what’s happening to them lately. :D

I think the list is not yet confirmed (or is it?) but more or less this will be the flow of the concert. OMG, 43 songs?! And a lot of them are DBSK and SuJu songs. :D I really hope to attend an SMTOWN concert one day because it seems to be so much fun (any event with DBSJ is love. <3). To all those who are going to the concert, you are so lucky!

Awww, another SMTOWN concert. I wonder if they’ll have a tour this year, too? How I wish I could see an SMTOWN concert this year. It looks so much fun. :D

I’m not sure but if I think these are ads for the Korean Tourism where the boys of DBSK were chosen to be the endorsers. Rain/Bi used to be the one participating on these kinds of CF.

CF 1 – MIROTIC PERFORMANCE

LOL @ the post-it that was posted on Yunho after the performance. Hahaha! :D

CF 2 – INFINITELY YOURS (w/ Super Junior & SNSD)

This was the CF they were filming when they went back to Korea while Junsu was nursing an injury. Pictures and fancams of the shooting of this CF  floated in the internet and many fans speculated on what CF was this for. Finally the question has been answered. The boys look so cute sitting on top of the roof and messing around with the couple by making throwing leaves as “confetti” at them. LOL.

CF 3 – SHANGHAI (w/ Super Junior)

OMG, if DBSK were to be hairstylists, I’d willingly go to the salon everyday and have my hair styled or cut. I don’t care if it becomes too short or damaged due to constant haircut and styling as long as I see my dear boys everyday, I’m willing to sacrifice my hair. LOL.
