The court has gave out the final ruling on the lawsuit between the 3 members of Dong Bang Shin Ki and SM Entertainment.

Seoul Central Court revealed on 27th October a citation of their ruling for the lawsuit between the SM Entertainment and TVXQ Hero JaeJoong, Xiah JunSu and Micky YooChun.

It was revealed, “We see that part of the terms in their contract has much destroyed the good morals of the whole contract. SM Entertainment should not interfere with its singers’ independent unique activities and also contract to perform and other entertainment activities.”

Previously in July, the 3 members of Dong Bang Shin Ki has revealed their 13-year long contract under SM Entertainment, which meant that they will possibly be working under SM Entertainment for life, and has applied for the effect of provisional disposition of the terms in their contract. And the 2 parties have engaged in a lawsuit as SM Entertainment insist that the terms under their contract are reasonable.

The court also revealed, “Through the individual agreement, there is high possibility for group activities to continue, but for the provisional disposition of the existing activities and the profit allocation, it is invalid and difficult. We will have to dismiss the application for the full provisional disposition of the effects of the exclusive belonging terms in the contract.”

The court ruled partial disposition of the exclusive contract terms – to dispose of the SM Ent’s interference to the members’ independent unique activities and also contract to perform and other entertainment activities

But the part about profit allocation will still have to stay

Updates: The 3 members have announced that they will agree to the court rulings on this lawsuit


121 Addition-

Addition from 121:

this the news that I read in soompi the courts in favor of the boys, and they stated that the boys should be able to be more independent (meaning they can reject schedules that SM proposes and can do their own businesses without interference) but not move companies (meaning all the boys will be under SM!) However! This is not a final decision, and the exact, absolute one will come out in the near future. I hope u are no longer confused


JJPortia12 @Dbsknights:The lawsuit is not finish yet,this is only a part of it.
The court stated the Provision Disposition of Profit will take a longer time to solve.

so for now DBSK's human rights is somehow solved but the money problem is not yet finished

Always Keep The Faith !!!!! :)
