Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun and Junsu, the three members of TVXQ / DBSK / Tohoshinki who took legal actions against SM Entertainment, have been sued for fraud in China along with Chinese subsidiary of the controversial cosmetics company CreBeau.
The plaintiff is a firm which is the distributor of CreBeau products in the Shanghai, Jiang Su and Sanxi region. A representative of the plaintiff stated:
"We were told by CreBeau that the three members were the board members of CreBeau, so we naturally believed that they will partake in promotions, which is the reason why we invested in this business. However, the three members did not appear on product announcement in Shanghai last July, resulting in fans complaining to us and returning the products. The overall loss that we suffered amount up to 1 million Yuan ($150,000). Yoochun and Junsu apologized to us regarding the matter but this fraud left us with too much damage, so we sent CreBeau a notice on October 22nd telling them to pay for the damage caused by their misrepresentation. However, we did not receive an answer and CreBeau closed their office in Beijing, so we had no choice but to sue them."
To this claim, CreBeau answered:
"We are analyzing this matter right now but it appears that they are making unreasonable claims. We have warned them about overly promoting the involvement of TVXQ members and it appears that they are suing them because we have stopped our ties with them due to various reasons. They say that we closed our office but in fact it just moved to another district of Beijing. Other distributors are doing fine in China."
This certainly is a crazy year for TVXQ. Stay tuned to allkpop as more information on the lawsuit becomes available. Also remember to check out the ONETVXQ Forums
