[TRANS] 091108 There’s a need for respecting the artist and also the efforts from the company to clean its own name

SM Entertainment’s CEO Kim Young Min stated during a press conference, held on the second of November, that “In 2002, 2007, 2008, the company under the correct and impartial advice of the Exchange Commission had amended the exclusive contract damages and it had contained the time of the contract and also the contents" "Yet, after such an amendment of the contract, it had been described as ‘slave contract'"

But there were raised objections regarding the statement, "After three revisions of the contract yet it was still like this, then we could imagine how badly this contract was previously."

After the press meeting, a fan stated, "The nature of this incident is obviously unfair and an inappropriate treatment, SM has always been ambiguous” "How could they really believe that today's contract is legitimate and conventional?"

The new representative for the cultural development, Kim Myeong-Sin expressed his own views regarding this confusion, "There’s a need for respecting the artist and also the efforts from the company to clean its own name," "For the sake of our performing arts and cultural development to go further, it is required from the company's own efforts to develop a better contract, as well as practices and protocols."

Representative Kim stated “Such a large company like SM acts as the precursor for our country’s cultures." "I hope to see the industry recognize a real sense of responsibility, and to strive for reasonable contract practices and performing arts industry aiming for a common development."

Representative Kim also added "The entertainment industry should not treat this lawsuit as a legal dispute between artists and the company; it should be treated as a fight for the rights of the artists and the establishment of a reasonable distribution of income in a contractual relationship with a transparent structure and other advanced management system opportunity."

There were also people who expressed that with the complains that had emerged from the society, both the company and the artists are not gaining anything, they should work together to find the solutions regarding this matter.

Professor Lee Dong-Nyeon stated, "The company should not look at their artists from the perspective of goods or capital, but as collaborators and companions, artists should also be conscious that they should seek for the short-term self-interest and generate them into something which promotes the cultures."
