[TRANS] 091030 The Need For Change In The Entertainment Agency

First of all, the Courts have sided with the three TVXQ members. In reference to the exclusive contract suspension request submitted by Xiah Junsu, YoungWoong Jaejoong and Micky Yoochun, the Courts laid down the decision that 'SM Entertainment is not allowed to interfere or question any individual activities of the three members or create contracts regarding group activities without the consent of the three members.'

This dispute between the group that is the Hallyu Wave's key player and king of the Asian market and the group's agency, the nation's top entertainment agency, is said to bring large waves of change not only to the entertainment industry, but to the entire nation as well. Many have said that the Courts' ruling has kick started the battle against unlawful contracts while others have said that the decision has completely ignored the trainee-raising method of most entertainment agencies.

The TVXQ case can be seen as a result of SM's 'Failure At Management.' However, that is only the evaluation based on the results. The reason the TVXQ dispute has come so far and deep is because there was a charge forward with a lack of 'communication and respect' on both sides.

One of the reasons that this dispute cant not be the center of attention in the entertainment industry is because the Courts have sided with the members of TVXQ and completely overturned the traditional method of agencies' formation of their contracts. We cannot blatantly say that all 13 year contracts are slave contract. As long as 'communication and respect' is prevalent and a fair income division is put in place, it will be a happy contract. They would be willing to sign onto a contract longer than 13 years at will. They would not think of moving to a different entertainment agency.

If TVXQ's birth is inspected, the process is a system with no room for 'communication and respect.' TVXQ is a team that was created by picking the best out of hundreds of trainees and forming a group. Even the members themselves would not have known what lay ahead of them in the future of their music careers. They were able to snag the title of 'Top of the Korean Music Industry' under the system of a large entertainment agency, and their entrance into the overseas market was probably calculated meticulously. The entire process would amount to a total of 10 years.

As this much time has passed, the members are bound to have looked back on themselves. They are also bound to have increased their musical control and bettered their abilities to select their paths. There were times when they had to stand on a stage regardless of the fact that they did not want to, and they would have had to handle the agency's actions to stop any activities that may 'endanger the group' with a feeling of oppression. This is where 'communication and respect' is needed. As the two sides are the bests of the best, there probably was the need to approach the situation calmly and after much thought. If things have come so far, there were bound to have been instances unknown to the public that pushed it so far. To become irreparable.

In truth, the members are preparing to 'sue for the nullification of the contract and compensation for damages incurred from the income division' while SM is submitting an appeal. SM has also stated that they will be revealing information that has not been told before and releasing an official statement.

When seeing all the big and small disputes that have erupted in the Korean music industry, they all originate from income division problems (unlawful contracts), failure to communicate (respect for human rights), natural limits (musical limits, lack of responsibility as a celebrity), and a interference of the family (interference from a third party).

But the income division problems have been the biggest disputes in this industry. Income division is important to gain trust and investments. If income division is not transparent, that is what a slave contract is. The lack of transparency in income division is what started the lack of human rights for celebrities in the music industry in the mid 90s.


The music industry must use this dispute as a stepping stone towards a change in 'communication and respect'. What can gain more trust than a contract is'communication and respect' and 'a transparent income division'. There is no other 'road to a solution'.

[TRANS] 091031 TVXQ Dispute 'SM's Dilemma'

Much attention has been put on SM Entertainment and its future actions as the Courts have sided with the three TVXQ members YoungWoong Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun and Xiah Junsu on the legal dispute between the three and their agency regarding their exclusive contract.

On the 27th, the Seoul District Courts partially accepted the exclusive contract suspension request against SM Entertainment submitted by Xiah Junsu, YoungWoong Jaejoong and Micky Yoochun.

To have the Courts partially accept the exclusive contract suspension request is to have the Courts decided that the contract between SM and the members of TVXQ is in fact unlawful. According to the decision of the Courts, SM is not allowed to interfere or question any individual activities of the three members or create contracts regarding group activities without the consent of the three members.

For now, SM has stated that the agency cannot accept the Courts' ruling. SM Entertainment released a notice stating "Although the entire contract was not suspended, the Courts stated that some parts of the contract was questionable and that is why we are submitting an appeal," and "Till now, we have kept some information from the media as the Courts requested that neither side be interacting with the press during the trial. Now we will reveal that information and release an official statement.

Unless an extremely controversial secret is revealed by SM Entertainment that could turn the tables, it can be said that the contract between SM and TVXQ has already been nullified.

The dilemma that SM faces now is the fact that the agency's other singers may attempt to leave the agency in the same method. TVXQ is not the only reason why SM is being so adamant and firm of their stance in this dispute. To state that conclusion first, there is close to no chance of TVXQ disbanding or ending their activities. This is because all three members involved in this dispute have no thoughts of leaving the group names TVXQ. Some representatives to the entertainment business stated that, "There is a high chance that SM and the three members will become equal partners regarding activities such as the release of a new album in the future."

The problem is how the two sides will fix the contract and the income division. Although the income SM receives from album sales or commercial activities will reduce, it is not so much that the company will run into bankruptcy.

The biggest problem for SM Entertainment is the fact that the majority of agencies works under a system that invests money to raise trainees into singers in a span of 1~7 years that does not guarantee profit after the singer's debut. In the case of TVXQ, if they are allowed to leave the agency stating that the contract was unlawful after gaining popularity, the agencies will have no incentive to continue on with this method of raising stars. This is also why the Fair Trade Committee constantly fails to come to a consensus with agencies when it comes to creating a basis contract.

The reason that SM is being carefully watched for its future actions regarding this trial and the consequences that follow is because this is not merely a problem between SM and TVXQ.

[INFO] 091029 SM-TVXQ Contract w/r/t/ Income Distribution

The Court has granted the injunction filed by the members of TVXQ against SM Entertainment.The Court found that the Contract between SM and the Members was unconscionable and against public policy. Following this victory, the Members are proceeding with the main suit to ask for the rightful shares of all income generated from their activities.

The following is a summary of the outrageous terms of the Contract that relates to the distribution of income. The clear conclusion is that the TVXQ members have received next to nothing for their six years of work, and that virtually all money we spend to buy SM products stay with SM. Please read the below to see the extent of the injustice.

Please keep in mind that SM's contract with TVXQ has been amended five times and therefore the applicable terms have varied over time. Accounting for all the resulting complexities, the truth adds up to the following:


I. TVXQ has received $0 for their album sales prior to July 2008, and only a negligible amount after that date.

Prior to the fifth and final round of amendments on July 1, 2008, the Contract read that for any album or single with sales not exceeding 500,000 copies, SM would be entitled to 100% of the profits, leaving the members with nothing. From the time of TVXQ's debut in late 2003 and until TVXQ's release of their 4th Korean album "Mirotic" in September 2008, no Korean album had sold more than 500,000 copies. Therefore, prior to July 2008 TVXQ has had absolutely zero income from their album sales.

On July 1,2008, SM amended the Contract to give each Member 1% of total sales for each album that sells over 200,000 copies. For any albums that sell fewer copies, the members are to receive 0.6% to 0%. SM has not honored even these outrageous terms, as it has not paid TVXQ a single cent since February 2009.

In sum, SM has kept 100% of all sales that TVXQ has generated with the sales of their albums and singles prior to July 2008, and has kept 95% or more of the sales after that date.


II. TVXQ has received $0 for the sales of concert DVDs and albums featuring recordings from such concerts.

Under the Contract, the Members are not entitled to receive any share of the profits generated from sales of concert DVDs and "live" albums.


III. TVXQ has received $0 for their appearances on TV programs.

Under the Contract, Members are not entitled to receive any share of the profits made through their TV appearances if the appearance is of a temporary nature. As all programs on which TVXQ appeared have featured the Members as "guests"and therefore by nature have been temporary, SM has kept all profits that TVXQ has generated from these TV appearances.


IV. For all other possible sources of revenue, SM subtracts from the total revenue all expenses, including salaries of other staff, stage preparation expenses, rent, travel expenses, food expenses, and the like, then gives TVXQ only a fraction of the remaining amount.

As for all other sources of income, the Contract states that TVXQ is entitled to varying percentages of the "net income." The Contract defines "net income" to be the amount remaining after the applicable "operating costs". The "operating costs" are defined to include such expenses that are traditionally expected to be covered by the employer, including but not limited to 1) salaries of the staff (manager, clothing coordinators, makeup artists, dance crew, and the like), 2) performing stage preparation costs, 3) living expenses, including rent and water/electricity bills, 4) travel expenses, including plane ticket costs, 5) meal expenses, and the like.

Even after all these "operating costs" are deducted from the net income, the Members are only entitled to a small percentage of the remainder while SM keeps the rest.


In conclusion, please realize that SM has kept virtually all of the profits that our Members have generated over the past six years. Our Members have received, literally, next to nothing.

Following thevictory of the granting of the preliminary injunction, the Members now prepare for a suit to claim their rightful share of the profits that they themselves generated. Please help them win the lawsuit by boycotting all SM-made products and merchandises (this excludes all Avex-made products, which includes Japanese albums and singles released in Japan).

Please remember that every cent you spend on SM will be used to fuel SM's efforts against our Members in the main suit. We as fans support TVXQ in their rightful fight fortheir rights.

[NEWS] 091030 "Heading To The Ground" to be Early Cut After 16th Episode, Flooding Criticisms from Viewers

MBC drama "Heading To The Ground" will call its early ending after the 16th episode airing this November 4th. The drama was previously planned to have 20 episodes, however due to the poor rating record, finally its episodes are cut and will finally have an early ending.

“Heading To The Ground” crew on the 29th after the broadcast of the 15th episode said, "The final episode will be aired next Wednesday," announced such caption informing the viewers.

The drama ending episode is too early even than the previously expected, caused many dissapointment from the viewers.

Earlier before, on last November 14th, "Heading To The Ground"crew confirmed, "The final is planned to happen after 18th episode." Therefore, "Heading To The Ground’s" successor "Heroes" would kick off its first broadcast on November 11th, a week earlier that it’s previously scheduled.

Nevertheless, after the episodes were cut by 2, it went another further drop to only 16 episodes which is shorter than it’s first announced, gathering strong complains from the viewers.

After the announcement of "Heading To The Ground" early final, the drama message boards was flooded with many dissatisfaction messages from netizens. "20 episodes were cut to 18, and now to 16… it’s really too much. Next time I won’t watch drama which has low TV rating anymore." "With the unfinished problems being left in the drama, I really don’t know how they’re going to solve it. This sudden reduction will leave the storyline development being absurd." "If the rating is good, the episodes are extended, when the rating is bad, they’re cut. The viewers seem to have no rights at all."

Meanwhile, "Heading To The Ground" is starring popular idol group TVXQ’s Yunho who is starting his acting career for the first time. Modern actors Ara, Lee Yoonji, and Lee Sang Yoon have been co-starring with Yunho in the production and received lots of anticipation. However the series has been receiving much criticism of acting skills, uncreative story development, etc and been ignored by netizens.

Especially since the recent drama "Iris" starring Lee Byung Hun and Kim Tae Hee has been broadcasted, it has recorded a shabby viewing rate of 3~4% and received an insulting review such as "The Viewing Rate is Heading to the Ground".

[NEWS] 091030 TVXQ Resume Careers in Japan!

TVXQ to Resume Careers in Japan

By Ryu Seung-yoon

Korean boy-band TVXQ will visit Japan in autumn in an attempt to resume their music careers
after being mired by a legal battle with their management agency.

Japan's Daily Sports reported on Oct. 29 that TVXQ will come to Japan
to participate in year-end TV programs.

The sports newspaper did not mention the Korean idol group's schedules in Japan,
but said the group is expected to appear on major entertainment TV programs such as
Japan's TBS record awards and NHK's song competition.

TVXQ's move came at a time when three of the five-member group is in a legal battle with
their agency, SM Entertainment, over the validity of their contract.
The three -- Hero, Micky and Xiah -- claim that the contract is unfair.

On Tuesday, the Seoul Central District Court said parts of the contract should be invalidated.
The court also paved the way for the three to stay in the five-member group
and continue with their solo activities (as well).

Rumors had it that the boy band may be disbanded as the three are expected to leave
SM Entertainment. The agency revealed its intention to appeal the case.

But news reports said that despite the legal battle, the group will unlikely be disbanded.

Fans are expressing stiff objection to a possible dispersal of the group.

Junsulv: This news is written based on an article from Daily Sports News
which I had posted here yesterday. This news came from Korea written by
The Korea Herald News Paper Company, which has been Korea's No.1 English news paper
company for decades. And I believe this is the first time ever a reliable news source from Korea
had written, "The group will unlikely be disbanded."
(Meaning, "TVXQ will not disband most likely.")

The title of this news article is "TVXQ to Resume Careers in Japan."
Let us continue to keep our faith that they will resume their careers as DBSK
all five members together in Korea as well!

◆ 4th Live Tour 2009 〜the Secret Code〜 Saitama Arena Day 1 - "Together with Junsu's recovery..."

Well then, we have talked about various things, but as the main topic of this series, let's look back at the journey of Tohoshinki from the Arena Tour to Tokyo Dome last year, at the transformation from Kobe to Saitama Arena. With nostalgic feelings, let's look back at their journey together, step by step.

Right after the light was turned off, Saitama Arena's hall was dyed with a bright red color. Such a spectacularly magnificent scene!

Taking a deep breathe, I realized that the number of fans have increased since last year, and the seats were all full. What a magnificent thing.

Then, as the opening movie ended, the first song "Secret Game" started. When the members came on stage one by one, I saw something shocking. Junsu was standing! The whole assembly hall was mixed with cheering voices and gasps of surprise. Just a few days ago at Kobe, he was still sitting on the wheelchair the whole time, so we couldn't believe what we were seeing...

Junsu was standing in the same line with the other 4 members, and they greeted us in harmonization like they always did!

That, just that... Saitama Super Arena burst out with cheering!!! I was so touched that I lost my words. He held such a strong will that made him recover surprising fast.

Whenever they performed dance songs, Junsu either sat on the chair or stood by himself singing on the main stage. Other than that, whether it was on the main stage or sub stage, the members were always singing together. It was such a spectacular sight that made me feel so happy.

Then, we got so touched to see Junsu walking from the main stage to the audience! Seeing him walking, everyone cheered for him passionately.

When they first walked to the main stage and headed for the sub stage, two members would walk first, following by the other three. Since his injury was not fully healed, Junsu had to take it step by step. Therefore, the other members also slowed down so that they could walk together with him, and everyone was moved by that scene.

Moreover, this time, the other members were totally different from last time.

In Kobe, because they knew what Junsu was feeling, they were also standing on stage with restless emotion. However, this time, even if Junsu was only able to stand or walk together a little bit, the other members looked so much different from before. They had become much more relaxed, and the stage was filled with smiling faces. Especially Yoochun, he was completely different (LOL). This time, we were able to feel how great Junsu's existence was.

In Kobe, we only saw Junsu on the wheelchair, but this time, he was able to change to different costumes. Just something trivial like that made me happy. When Junsu finished changing and came on stage, everyone was cheering with a big "Oh~!"

Because of Junsu's injury, last time, his part "Sexy Lady, A~n" in "Choosey lover" was done by Changmin. However, since he had somewhat recovered this time, the other members had the "What should we do this time?" look on their faces, but Junsu made a "You do it today too" face to Changmin, so in the end Changmin was the one who did it.

Then for "Summer Dream", when it came to Junsu-sensei's dance session, everyone was having the "What should we do?" look on their faces again. Jaejoong suddenly came up from nowhere and said "Today Jaejoong will do it!". However, although he was supposed to come up with three dances, he was only able to come up with two. Good job anyway (LOL)

This time, we didn't really feel that Junsu was away from everyone anymore. Moreover, Junsu looked like he wanted to dance, thus from the beginning to the very end, I felt like he was really trying to dance. Jaejoong also said, "When we were rehearsing, Junsu would say that 'I'm fine now [so let me dance]' all the time". He just wanted to dance that much, didn't he?

When the members asked about the current condition of his injury, Junsu answered, "I can totally walk now". When asked when he would be able to dance again, Junsu said, "Sorosoro, coming soon!" [T/N: sorosoro=gradually] and laughed out loud.

I think that the members would not be able to raise their tension without these kinds of comments from Junsu.

For the first time, I saw every seat in Saitama Super Arena filled with audience, and that was just admirably amazing. And like always, the red ocean was always the best!

With Junsu's quick recovery, everything started to change and the stage looked more complete. Little by little, the tour had become much more delightful. Successful performance after performance, we were able to feel that something would come up, and the remaining story of their road to Tokyo Dome will be continued next time.

[T/N: I didn't add the LOL parts, the author did ^^]

[NEWS]091029 TVXQ's New Song "Break Out" will be released in Japan!! NHK's New Drama Series Theme Song!! On Air From January 2010!!

New Song's Title: "BREAK OUT!!"

It is revealed on October 28th, 2009, that TVXQ will take charge of the main theme song of "Break Out!" which will be used at NHK's New Drama Series, "Tomehane (Let us jump together)! Suzusato High School, Calligraphy Club".
(The Drama will start to air on January 7th, 2010; 8 PM on Thursdays.)

It is the first time for TVXQ to sing the theme song in Japanese production work of NHK.
They sang "Beautiful You", the theme song of the historical Korean Drama, "The Legend", broad casted at NHK (2007-2008). ( xU : I think it should be the Song Thousand Year Love Song ~ Senne Koi Uta (which released in the Single Beautiful You) that DBSK sang as the theme song of "Legend" Listen To It )

NHK chose TVXQ because they are:

"The group which has the most power right now (by NHK).

TVXQ participated last year's "Kohaku Utagassen, (Red and White New Year's Music Special by NHK)"; they also performed two nights in Tokyo Dome very successfully."

The song will be a light pop music.

It is connected to the story line of the drama, which displays the love story and the competition of the small calligraphy club
at the High school.

"Grab your own future, be positive and keep on going, then your destiny will become bright! It is all up to you!"

That kind of message is included in this theme song.

TVXQ's leader Yunho (23) said,
"That will be nice if we could support young people who are trying their best to achieve their dreams in their lives."
(T/N: That is who our TVXQ are!)

[TRANS] 091028 “This kind of member is a must-have for idol groups!” Breakdown of Idol Group Members' Characteristics

With the current inflood of idol groups into the Kpop zone, there is an article which breaks down the composition of an idolgroup – what kind of members are typical throughout all idol groups and their characteristics.

▶ Outstanding looks, the face of the group… Flower idols

In every team there is the ‘flower idol’. These people are the characters who will help the group increase their popularity through the early stages of their debut due to their outstanding looks.

There are the ‘Thai prince’ 2PM Nich Khun, ‘Boys Over Flowers’ JiHoo seonbae Kim HyunJoon, So Nyeo Shi Dae YoonA and Tiffany,Dong Bang Shin Ki Hero JaeJoong, WonderGirls SoHee, After School UEE, KARA Goo Hara, T-ara JiYeon, Super Junior ShiWon etc

▶ Power sexy and charisma… Beasty idols

You cannot miss out the members who are proud of their sexiness and charisma, or we call them the ‘beasty idols’.

Some examples are 2PM JaeBum, Dong Bang Shin Ki UKnow Yunho, Big Bang TOP for boybands.

For girlgroups, there are also ‘beasty idols’, for instance there are So Nyeo Shi Dae HyoYeon, 4Minute HyunA etc.

▶ Talents over looks… Artsy idols

There are also members who may not be as outstanding in terms of looks as compared to the other members in the group but are as talented as or even more talented than anyone for their vocals.

We call them the ‘artsy idol’, and our representative idol members are G.O.D Kim TaeWoo and Fin.K.L Ok JooHyun.

For our younger idols there are 2AM ChangMin, SS501 Heo YoungSaeng, Big Bang DaeSung, Dong Bang Shin Ki JunSu etc.

These members are the voices of the group and are as important as the ‘flower idols’ because they deliver good performances on stages.
