Already siding with JYJ and Cjes Entertainment on the last court hearing last 17th of February, The Seoul District Courts have decided to lay down mandatory compensation against SM Entertainment in case they try restricting JYJ’s activities. According to the official documents released by JYJ’s agency, they released statements stating : “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 court verdict’s official statement between SM Entertainment’s restriction on JYJ’s activities:
- “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, 20009.”
- “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,”
- “SM must not intefere in JYJ’s independent activities in the entertainment industry.”
More on, Cjes Entertainment Agency’s CEO has also had few words released to the press today. And according to him: “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.”
