[TRANS] 091106 Unfair Contract Dispute, SM has Changed its Stand?

SM Entertainment CEO's Kim Young Min, who is involved in the ‘unfair contract’ dispute with his artistes, has recently announced a new contract policy, and that it will be put into action once it gets approved by the related authorities.

SM Entertainment Representative, Kim Young Min, who attended the press conference which was held on the 2nd of November 2009 at 63 Tower, has expressed, “We would collect all comments from music and entertainment industries, related government departments, cultural and tourism board, fair trade departments, educational circles and legislative bodies, based on the law to adjudicate a new contract policy. After the approval from the respective authorities, we would then put it into action. Then follow it (new contract policy) enthusiastically.”

Kim agreed, “If we are able to come out with a new exclusive contract policy based on the law, SM would like to re-contract with all current artistes based on it.”

Kim also expressed, “Under the new exclusive contract, the moment it’s signed it would be protected till the contract ended, if not the current situation would repeat over and over again in the future.”

“In order to prove that what have just I said is nothing but the truth, we would first like to take the advice from the impartial committee,” he said.

But, everyone was not able to fully believe this announcement by SM Entertainment. Professor Lee from Korea Art University stated, “If SM do not wish to have what they have just said to turned into nothing, then they should assure them.” He continued, “Based on what SM have said, they do not wish to fully take on the advice from the impartial committee, but to forcefully come out with a new contract policy, which was questionable (their announcement).” Professor Lee ended, “If SM was really sincere about this, they should work on the new contract based on the advice and not vice versa, and then to get it approved by the representative authorities.”

TVXQ's YoungWoong Jaejoong, who is caught in a legal dispute with agency SM Entertainment over the group's exclusive contract, is holding the spotlight as it has been found that he will be attending the preview of on the 9th.

As the second film of 'Telecinema', "Postman of Heaven" has confirmed its press conference as the 9th and it was revealed on the 5th that lead role YoungWoong Jaejoong would be attending the event.

[TRANS] 091105 U-Know Yunho's Rediscovery through 'HTTG' - 'His Passion For Challenges Shone Through'

Nowadays, the critiquing of dramas takes its basis from ratings.
When the rating are high, a drama is seen as successful and good, while low ratings make a drama, as well as the actors, a failure. This is why the deciding factor of most of the media's critiques of a successful actor and a failed actor depend on whether that actor was in a drama with high or low ratings.

U-Know Yunho of MBC's 'Heading to the Ground', which ended on the 4th on a gloomy note with 16 episodes, received such appraisal as well. But U-Know Yunho was different. U-Know Yunho, who temporarily left his title as leader of idol group TVXQ that swept all of Asia of its feet to try his hand at acting, grew as an excellent actor despite the fact that his drama received low ratings. Instead of drawing the limit from failure, he worked harder to improve his acting skills.

U-Know Yunho was rediscovered through 'Heading to the Ground'. During the drama, he showed the viewers who actor Jung Yunho, not singer TVXQ's U-Know Yunho, was. According to those involved with the drama, U-Know Yunho matured and grew rapidly as an actor in 'Heading to the Ground' from episode 1 to 16. The insufficiency of episodes 1 and 2 were filled by episode 3 and 4 and he began to show a more mature acting through episodes 5 and 6 and began drawing the viewers' attention.

The decision to partake in 'Heading to the Gorund' in itself was a great challenge to Jung Yunho. In the case of most rookie actors, they choose characters that will continue and better their popularity and image such as flower boys, business tycoons, charismatic guys, bad boys, or geniuses. But U-Know Yunho broke out of his image as an idol on stage and showed a quite different side of himself. He wanted to be reborn as an actor. To overcome the handicap of it being an idol star's first acting attempt, he went head on with situations in the drama without the use of a stunt double and won.

His character Cha Bong Goon was more memorable because he was not a cool character, but one who seemed to be lacking in some way. He showed everything from bizarre facial expressions to comical dancing. Although the charisma of TVXQ he had built up since his debut had disappeared, he was able to show everyone the birth of Actor Jung Yunho.

TVXQ's U-Know Yunho, who now has five years of a singing career under his belt, has evolved into a talented singer but has just begun to mature as Actor Jung Yunho. His youth and passion for challenges are beautiful, there are hopes to see what else Actor Jung Yunho has to offer in dramas and in movies.

[FACC] 091107 I Went To The "TOHOSHINKI THE LIVE 2009"!

I went to the TOHOSHINKI THE LIVE 2009 on Nov 6!
My theater was TOHO CINEMAS Kawasaki.

First of all, of course I had to check on the goods.

They are really doing good jobs here, selling magazines, CDs; and DVDs. Looking at the cover of the magazines, you could catch the whole of TVXQ's History in Japan!

There weren't posters of the event anywhere, we just went to SCREEN 7 and there was a small picture of Tohoshinki

The SCREEN 7 where the movie was shown holds up to 240 people, a middle sized screen for the TOHO CINEMAS KAWASAKI.

My seat was on the right side. If it was a concert, that would have had been truly lovely, oh, I'm a great fan of Yunho! Changmin is also my favorite

For the contents of the movie, please refer to linh-chan's wonderful report:

The first part of the movie was of course some parts of the TOKYO DOME LIVE. I went to the DOME FINAL on July 5th and was part of the red & blue ocean on the day. I was very much excited, I know that I'll treasure the memories all my life. (Oh, here, I can hear "LUCKY smiley!" calls )

But looking afterwards in a movie with very good quality images and clear audio sounds in a theater was another special experience that I will never forget.

For your information, the image is just the same as the DOME DVD.

Looking at the 5 members on a big screen you can feel their power, liveliness, and wonderful dancing! Kya~~~~~~~~~ they are so cool! I wish I can express my feelings more, but sorry, my english vocabulary is very limited

Looking at the Dome Movie, I was especially impressed with Junsu. His singing, dance, and well all his performances were sooooooo wonderful, they are beyond words. Oh, I miss charismatic Junsu very much...

The second part of the movie was of fans' selected favorite PVs. I was happy to see Purple Line, MIROTIC, and Survivor, which I've personally requested.

The most exciting part was the third part. It was the total performance of a-nation Tokyo (Aug 23). I was at the a-nation in AJINOMOTO STADIUM on that date and a part of the purple ocean (here it comes again, "SUPER LUCKY Smiley" calls from our friends ), but my seat was in the very rear. There seemed to be an approximate 150-170m distance from my seat to the stage (AJINOMOTO STADIUM is a soccor stadium).

On that date, even though I was using binoculars, the 5 members seemed to be little dots far away.

But in the movie you can see them in such a close up! They were laughing, playing, dancing and of course there was always the lovely harmony. During the song "Doushite~", the members close-up images were taken. Junsu was singing and moving his lips even when it was not his part, Yoochun was forever smiling, JaeJoong is only a super beauty with lovely eyes, Changmin was sweating as always and Yunho was earnest looking~~ Kya~~~~ cannot expressed in words.

Since only two songs have been officially broadcasted, I thought I truly wanted the DVD of their full a-nation performance.

Last was the wonderful endroll song “Tokiwo Tomete”. Please refer to

After seeing the movie, I truly thought that the 5 should perform together. Tohoshinki is perfect and complete by the 5 members! Oh, I miss seeing them together very much, I know everyone misses them.

Afterwards, my friend and I went to the CD shop (HMV) in the same building as the theater, and of course there was a special corner selling Tohoshiki goods.

It was a truly exciting day!

The movie, "Heaven's Postman", is shown in a movie theaters in November of this year in Korea,
it seems to be broad casted on TV in January through February of the next year in Korea.

The main star of this movie is Jeajoong from TVXQ.

I want to hear it! (I myself want to know about it!)

I think that the details are not yet decided.
There is no communication from them coming to me.

This coming Friday, I intend to contact the person who are in charge of this project.

I must have courage to ask them!! (Be bold Eriko!)

Well, it is not me who directly contact them.
(T/N: It sounds like that she has to go through someone to deliver her request
to the official of this project.)

I recieved the final product. It is really well done.
All in Korean, no Japanese sub titles yet.
If no one does it, I myself will do it!
(T/N: So she is fluent in Korean?? Or she would hire someone? ^^)

It is really a good product, please watch it everyone!!

[TRANS] 091104 Information Related To NHK KOUHAKU

1. NHK announced on November 3, that the MC for 60th KOHAKU UTAGASSEN (broadcasted on Dec.31) will be Yukie Nakama (30) and Masahiro Nakai (37, member of SMAP). The two MC in a set will be the third time this year, previously it was on 2006 and 2008. Nakai will be the host for the 6th time, this will be the MC record excluding NHK professional announcers.

2. NHK will re-broadcast “MUSIC JAPAN Tohoshinki Special” on November 18 (Wed) 26:35~27:25 (actual broadcasting date will be Nov 19, 2:35~3:25).

The program was first broadcasted on Nov 30, 2008

T/N: This is just my personal opinion, but I find these two news a very good omen for the Tohoshinki to participate in the 60th NHK Kouhaku Utagassen this year. (Kouhaku Utagassen is the biggest Japanese music program broadcasted on December 31 every year.)
The reasons are:
1) NHK has selected Nakai of SMAP (a famous group of Johnny’s) for the MC, which means that they have first flattered Johnny in order for them to agree with their stars participating together with Tohoshinki. (Please refer to the article for information concerning Johnny’s idols and TVXQ, especially that groups from Johnny’s have been a tight grip on Japan’s male idol market)
2) Last year’s broadcast for “MUSIC JAPAN Tohoshinki Special” was on November 30. (The PD introduced the broadcast on EYESBLOG on Nov. 25, and on the same date, Tohoshinki’s participation for the Kouhaku Utagassen was officially announced.)  The news that NHK will re-broadcast this program at this timing this year means that NHK is in favor of Tohoshinki!

If Tohoshinki really participates in the Kouhaku Utagassen this year, our international friends will also be able to watch them on-time through NHK WORLD (satellite , cable TV)!!

[NEWS] TVXQ members threatened with expulsion

The ongoing legal feud between three of the five members of the popular boy band TVXQ and their management agency, S.M. Entertainment, has now entered a critical phase.

In a press conference held Monday, S.M. Entertainment issued an ultimatum to the three band members - Xiah Jun-su, Micky Yoo-chun and Hero Jae-joong - saying they must decide whether to return to their original contract by Nov. 12 or quit the band altogether. The management agency added that they would appeal a recent interim court ruling made in favor of the three band members for a provisional disposition, which temporarily terminates the exclusive contract between the group and the agency for the duration of the dispute.

In the dispute that started this summer, the three band members claimed their contract with the agency is akin to a lifelong agreement and is therefore unfair.

The other two band members - Max Chang-min and U-Know Yun-ho - spoke out against their bandmates for the first time through a written statement released by the agency at the Monday press conference.

“We think that TVXQ cannot exist anywhere but in S.M. Entertainment,” the statement said. “S.M. is the only agency that understands and can make TVXQ the best - it would be unthinkable for TVXQ to work under a different agency,” it added. “We hope that the three band members will return quickly so that we can perform together as TVXQ again.”

[NEWS] 091104 TVXQ: Slave contract or ingratitude

"It is a case of national fraud which has been concealed by words such as 'human rights' and 'slave contract'," SM Entertainment CEO Kim Young-min calmly read from a press release stating the agency's position regarding three members of TVXQ applying for provisional disposition of their contract with SM. But the remark, made during a press conference Monday morning, were beyond expectations. Kim went on to argue that the legal dispute came to light because of a cosmetics business which Micky, Hero and Xiah took on without discussion with SM. "They violated the contract first for their own gains and took legal action to cover it up," he said, adding that the court "will be protecting their individual egoism and ingratitude" if it rules in favor of the three singers.

But even more surprising was TVXQ members' U-Know and Max's position on the issue, revealed through a press release during the press conference. The statements, signed by the two, read: "We cannot believe that TVXQ may collapse because of a cosmetics business" and their fathers said the other three members were using the issue as "an excuse to cover up the fundamental reason (cosmetics business)". The statement by the two members are meaningful in that they could turn around the focus of entire case. Below are the main points at issue.

I. Background on legal dispute

Micky, Hero and Xiah applied for provisional disposition of their contract with SM in late-July, stating it was actually a 'slave contract' for the following reasons: ▲ TVXQ had signed a ten-year contract with SM which was renewed to a total 13 years ▲ TVXQ would not receive any profit from album sales unless over 500,000 copies were sold (altered after February 2009) ▲ If any member of TVXQ cancelled their contract with SM, that individual would have to compensate by paying twice the amount of the profit they would make in the future. The three declared the contract was not fair and wanted it corrected.

Meanwhile, SM argued during their press conference this week that the three members' business with cosmetics brand CreBeau was at the root of the dispute. SM said through a press release that the singers took legal action after starting to clash with the agency over their cosmetics business. According to SM, the three members requested a court to nullify their exclusive contract with the agency after the following incidents: ▲ The three signed a contract with CreBeau which would entitle them to five percent of the company's sales as royalty and held a promotional event as TVXQ without consent of their agency and ▲ The three declined to shoot a commercial for a major cosmetics brand because of their own business. SM's logic is that the three did not take legal action because of the contract they call unfair but to fulfill their bigger desires. CreBeau filed a lawsuit against SM for libel soon after, stating that "each members invested only a certain amount of money in the business, their intellectual property such as their names or photographs were never used, and they do not have a say in management of the business at all."

II. Legitimacy of their contract

Last week, the Seoul Central District Court made an interim court ruling, saying SM cannot sign contracts in opposition of the opinions of the individual's of TVXQ and will not interfere with their activities as a celebrity until a final verdict is made -- acknowledging there could be problems to the contract, based on legal standards. The three have also declared they have not received any of their share of profits since February this year.

But SM stated it had accepted most of the members requests to have their share in profits increased. According to SM, ▲ TVXQ voluntarily made the decision to sign a 13-year contract with SM who had guaranteed investment and support in their vision ▲ SM corrected the terms regarding compensation over cancellation of the contract in 2002, 2007 and 2008 upon recommendation by the Fair Trade Commission and ▲ SM agreed to greatly increase TVXQ's share of profits starting February 2009 and applied the term retroactively to the profits they made starting late 2008.

SM also stated that a wrong decision by the court could "bring the downfall of the industry's system which made 'hallyu' possible through long-term investment and raising stars". They went onto argue that, "If a contract, originally signed between two parties upon their consent and free will, is not valid after the success (of a singer or actor), this will bring confusion to the entire entertainment industry...... Many similar cases in the future will arise where they will try to come up with some sort of reason or excuse not to stick to their contract." SM emphasized on the special nature of the industry which invests large amounts of money to create a single idol group and that the contract was signed upon mutual consent.

III. Future of lawsuit

``The court's recent decision has temporarily granted the three members the rights to do their individual activities, but they can only work as TVXQ under the agency,'' SM said during the press conference. They also declared that they will ask the three for financial compensation for the losses and damage incurred upon the group and the agency with the ongoing legal action. And SM gave the three members a 10-day deadline, till November 12, to decide on whether they will be part of the team to resume their activities in Korea next spring.

But it is uncertain how much of an influence SM's argument will have on Micky, Hero and Xiah. Even if SM's remarks are true, the ongoing legal dispute is over provisional disposition of the contract itself and the court has already made an interim ruling based on whether their contract with SM is unfair.

IV. Will TVXQ continue to exist?

The biggest incident during the press conference was that U-Know, Max and their fathers revealed their stance on the issue -- showing their support for SM which widened their gap with the other three members. Till then, both parties had refrained from making emotional reactions toward each other because they both wanted their group TVXQ to last. But now, the dispute may turn into an expose. If the dispute up till now was about the contract between SM and the three members, there is a chance that they now might battle over whether the group will continue to exist. Of course, both sides have said they wish to remain in TVXQ but it seems impossible that they will be able to do without scarring each other. Will they be able to continue to exist? The case is now set at an important crossroad.

[TRANS] 091105 Yunho's HTTG Shooting Completed

Tohoshinki’s YUNHO (Jung Yunho) has finished the last shooting for the Wed & Thurs drama “Heading To The Ground” (MBC).

A related person said on Nov 3 “The last shooting was a soccer scene. It was piercingly cold so that it was much difficult than previously shootings. The staffs wore thick jackets, but all the actors playing soccer (including Jung Yunho) only wore soccer wear (short pants), so it should have been difficult.”

This day, Jung Yunho shot a scene being accidentally toppled by another player, committing many fouls. But he did not forget to smile till the end, and have done his best. All were very impressed. The other actors was influenced by Yunho, and pumped up thinking “Let’s take care of ourselves not to be injured, and hang on till the end”.

[NEWS] Lawsuit may lead to TVXQ split

By Ryu Seung-yoon

The possibility of Korea's top idol group TVXQ disbanding is increasing, after their agency sent an apparent ultimatum to three of the five-member boy band to return to the agency.

Speaking at a press conference on Monday, SM Entertainment chief Kim Young-min accused the three members -- Xiah, Hero, and Micky -- of having sued against the company out of greed to make more money.

Kim was speaking about the ongoing legal battle between the three members and the company. The three band members claim the contract signed between TVXQ and the management agency is unfair.

Last month, a lower court sided with the three and ruled that parts of the contract should be invalidated, paving the way for them to resume individual music and advertisement careers.

The agency vowed to bring the case to a higher court, saying the three must follow the contract as long as they continue to be part of TVXQ, and should get paid according to the current contract.

The other two members -- U-know and Max -- rendered their support for the management agency's claim, expressing hope that the other three would return quickly.

In their statement, the two stressed that all members have worked under the same contract with SM Entertainment for the past five years.

"We believe that TVXQ would not have been in existence without SM Entertainment, which created the group. We are also not willing to resume our career as TVXQ without our current agency," the statement said.

In a related movement, SM Entertainment chief Kim made it clear that although the court granted freedom to the three members to pursue individual activities, they are allowed to work as TVXQ only under SM.

The company demanded that the three members reply to its request to return to the agency by Nov. 12.

But it is widely viewed that the three are unlikely to continue to work with the management agency due to deep distrust between the two sides.

[TRANS] 091104 Romantic Guy 'YoungWoong Jaejoong' Shows Off His Charm Through Film

Global project 'Telecinema 7' was brought together by Japan's best writer and Korea's famous drama role caster along with Korea's top stars to create seven movies in total. Heaven's Postman, which was TVXQ's YoungWoong Jaejoong's first attempt at acting, is garnering much attention before it's screening date on the 12th of November; many are curious to see if he is as good on screen as he is on stage.

Romantic Fantasy Heaven's Postman

Heaven's Postman, which is included in 'Telecinema 7', is the romantic fantasy tale of the 14 day love between Hana (Han Hyo Joo), a woman who cannot forget her deceased lover, and Jejun (YoungWoong Jaejoong), a special man who delivers the letters people write to their deceased love ones.

Through his acting debut of Asia's top idol star TVXQ's YoungWoong Jaejoong, viewers will be able to see the soft and romantic side of him in his portrayal of Heaven's postman with a riddle-like mysteriousness about him.

The image of Heaven's postman YoungWoong Jaejoong standing in a green field where the letters are mailed to Heaven draws everyone's attention with his looks resembling that of a romance comic book character. A necklace with feather decorations and bland colored clothes add to his mysterious air and he has shown prospect of becoming a great actor with his warm gaze and steady flow of emotion directed towards those who cannot forget their deceased loved ones. He also showed a romantic charm never before seen on stage by showing a warm, caring side to Hana who is hurt by and despises her dead boyfriend.

His acting skills of showing a man who begins to love but cannot approach his lover, and his special charm that was shrouded by secrets will captivate the audience and the hearts of women.

Heaven's Postman showed that YoungWoong Jaejoong was as successful on screen as he was on the stage.

[TRANS] 091104 Mnet Secret - "The Miracle of Tohoshinki", what Mnet writers think about what's going on right now

T/N: In Japanese, a music sheet is written as gosenshi, which literally means a paper with 5 lines. In this post, the author refers the 5 lines of the music sheet to the 5 members of Tohoshinki.

I was going to write something on the second day of Saitama, but I think everyone is now confused and worried about what's going on with the contract dispute after the news came out on 11/2.

A few days ago, after the partial decision of the lawsuit came out, SM Entertainment hold an interview. As for this interview, each person had each own understanding and judgment, thus each report came out with different information. I am not here to make any comment regarding this matter.

Only when the 5 of them are together are they called Tohoshinki. Tohoshinki is a group that its members keep on moving forward with the unshaken emotions that they want to protect. Even now when the members have different standpoints, I believe that the path that they're heading towards is the same.

Do you know the B-side song of the single "Lovin' You" that is called "Gosenshi" (五線紙 - music sheet)? Yoochun once said, "When I listened to this song, I thought of Junsu's smile."

Yoochun does love Junsu a lot, doesn't he? Even though this song is a little bit simple, it is a really heart-warming song with hidden meanings. When you listen to this song, you will be able to see the image of the 5 of them heading towards their dream together. This song was written by H.U.B., who is also the lyricist of "COLORS ~Melody and Harmony~". I am sure that he always thought of Tohoshinki and used them as reference when he wrote the lyrics.

【Gosenshi】 lyrics (excerpt)


With the song that we are humming
Someday our feelings will pile up to become one
Into the flowing wind of tomorrow
We'll be walking on this path together like the 5 lines of the music sheet
With the blue sky stretching out forever.

Clouds are still clouds no matter how their shapes change
Aren't they very similar to us
Who keep on living today?

More than someone who is just by my side sighing together through the hard times
The ones who keep waiting for me no matter what are my true best friends.

I'm thankful that I met you
Now I'm able remember the strength that can help me to overcome anything
We are not alone
One by one, we are walking on this path like the 5 lines of the music sheet
And you are by my side.

No one knows what would happen 10 years later
But even then, when we gather together
We would become youngsters again.

The flowers' colors sway in the wind
Like they're trying to give us their melodies
While watching the trail of vapor left behind by airplanes
We are walking on this path like the 5 lines of the music sheet.

With this random song of ours
Someday our feelings will pile up to become one
Into the flowing wind of tomorrow
We'll be walking on this path together like the 5 lines of the music sheet.

With the blue sky stretching out forever
And our voices streaming out with no boundary,
You are by my side~♪』

The path of the 5 of them...
It's needless to say how happy we will be if the 5 of them are able to walk together like the 5 lines of the music sheet.

The members that you've been watching up until now
Are the only truth that you should believe in.

Right now, fans are wishing for only one thing.
They want to see the members smile wholeheartedly...

I believe that such feelings will keep overflowing forever.

[TRANS] 091104 Max Matsuura's blog entry, regarding rumors of Tohoshinki leaving SM and moving to avex

Regarding the wrong information about Tohoshinki

The following article has been floating around, but I myself haven't said or written anything about it.

I believe this was made up by someone.

Please be careful not to be confused and misunderstand about the following content. [T/N: aka the following content is FALSE]


An email with the following content, titled 『From president's blog~』, has been sent around...

『This is avex's Matsuura.
Thank you for always supporting Tohoshinki.
Starting from the end of this year, not only Tohoshinki's Japanese activities, but their activities in Korea and Asia will also be under avex's management.
Since everyone has been worried about the contract dispute, I am here to announce that the 5 of them will be moving from SM Entertainment to avex completely.』

T/N: Today some people have received an email claiming to be from Max Matsuura saying that the boys are moving from SM to avex, and even my friend who's not in Japan knows about it. Max Matsuura probably heard about that rumor, so he made a blog entry to clarify that it is NOT true. In other words, do NOT believe in anything regarding the boys and avex unless it is announced on their official website.
