[Trans/Summary] Avex sues the venue that held JYJ’s Japan Charity Concert

Posted on July 25, 2011 by jyj3

Summary of the article in “Shukan Gendai” –Weekly times- Newspaper

On the 10th of May, a warning was sent to the Sumo Organization, clearly requesting the suspension of the event.

Then, a representative from the side of the Sumo Organization called on the 12th of May, saying “figure out your trouble between the involved parties (T/N: JYJ and Avex) because we’ve already allowed the use of the venue, and received the rental fees” the representative informed them rudely. (T/N: the quotes from the representative were written in informal speech that can be considered rude when spoken in such a formal situation.)

“Right before the concert on the 2nd of June, we sent them another warning, but it was useless” a person from Avex said. Avex took all the temporary methods to stop the concert but, it is now forced to take legal actions against the Sumo Organization, the management company and others seeking compensation of 143,400,000 Yen (T/N: approximately $1,834,200) and is taking the case to Tokyo district court.

The compensation was estimated based on the calculation of the profit that Avex would have gained if they held the event as the management company. “All the other concert venues in Japan knew about the trouble between us and the Right-wing gangster organization, and refused to host the concert.

Why was the Kokugikan (T/N: sumo hall) the only one to accept them? You start to suspect that they have connections to the other side (T/N: Right-wingers)” says a member of Avex management.

(Part not related to the lawsuit omitted)

Concerning this lawsuit, the Sumo organization stated, “The petition for the lawsuit has not been confirmed yet, therefore we cannot answer any questions”

For a sumo organization who is covered in scandals and barley managing to finally hold a tournament, the opportunity of hosting a concert for such a popular idol group was an irresistible temptation, but the final result was that they made an enemy of such a huge recording company.

Ok, i have taken some personal notes regarding this act by AVEX:

– personally, i thought AVEX really have lost their mind by suing the venue. for my understanding, as i dont familiar with Japan Law, the so called. ‘contract problem’ is between AVEX and THSK/JYJ. so it doesnt concern the venue at all. if JYJ and Cjes decided to hold the charity concert in a public parking lot or public garden or in a forest, they will sue those places too?

– this event was for charity, as in non-profit event. i believe people already knew, that CJes n JYJ themselves even asked fans to didnt bring any gift for them, bcoz the even was meant for charity, to help Japan. but AVEX, as a company in Japan, who supposed to support any activity helping their fellow citizen who, even until now still need help, suing the venue with a compensation “estimated based on the calculation of the profit that Avex would have gained if they held the event as the management company” so for them, its not ‘contract problem’ like they said as a reason why they keep blocking this charity event, but because they wont gain any profit from the event. i mean, really AVEX? its for charity to help your people and all you can think is the profit?  i believe this shown true face of AVEX.

– “Why was the Kokugikan (T/N: sumo hall) the only one to accept them? You start to suspect that they have connections to the other side (T/N: Right-wingers)” says a member of Avex management.”

its so funny, how AVEX keep saying about the ‘right wingers’ (as in yakuza) in everything that related to JYJ. first they accused CJes CEO have a connection with yakuza. but we all know that it was AVEX who introduced JYJ to him and how Matsuura even praised him alot. then as we all know, now he keep saying bad thing about CEO Baek.and accused him have realtionship with ‘yakuza’. and now, the accused Sumo Organization also have a relationship with ‘right wingers’ (yakuza) also. i mean, come on AVEX, must you accused everybody who dare to refused u as they have a relationship with yakuza ? beside, even if they do, what is the relation between them having relationship with ‘right wingers’ with them let JYJ having a charity concert? at least they have a heart to let the charity to help their own people happened.

“You start to suspect..” well, avex, i believe it just you who suspect like that, since all people care is how the event could help people in Japan who in need and still need help.

and i believe people also heard the news that in fact it was Matsuura himself that the one who have connection with ‘the gang’ (1) (2)

really, Avex, how low can you be???

why at last i chose to support JYJ

with 24 comments

ok, before i start rambling, i have to admit that english isnt my first languange. so this ramble might contains lots of grammar mistake n misspell words. but hey, i warned u before, so, dont complain! for the grammar, or for the very looooooooooooooonnnnnggggggggg rambling…

i never plan to share about JYJ in here. as i say quite alot in every news about jyj. but then, even with the boys doing fine, with sme’s lies being open in the SK court, lots of people still bashing jyj n saying they are greedy, etc, etc.

so, here’s my stand in these situation, and why then i chose to support JYJ. what i share in here is from my experience n my thoughts during those times. thus, its not a made up to justify what i felt about why i support JYJ. in contrary, i’m finally decided to support JYJ bcoz of my past experience as  a fan of SME artists like HOT, BOA, Shinhwa, Fly To The Sky n then TVXQ.

but firstly, let me share a bit about how i know Kpop n SME. i fell in love with all about SK was far before people talking about korean wave. my first touch with Korea was since 2001. it was from kdrama Autumn in My heart (AIMH) starred by Song Hye Gyo, Won Bin n Song Seung Hun. at that time Meteor Garden was big hit in whole Asia. so people dont know about kdrama since mandarin drama was the main search in that time. even people who watched AIMH prefer to put the mandarin dub than to hear the real languange. but not for me, i was fascinated by Korean languange. the languange like music in my ears. thus, my first experience with Korea. than i watched Winter Sonata (WS) in 2002. and i fallen in love fully with SK. i studied Korean Languange in 2003 for 5-6 months. and since i love AIMH n WS, i was fallen with the OST. there was my first experience with Kpop. i was accidently found one track from  AIMH OST sung by HOT, A Song For A Lady. i love this song so much. thus i searched alot about HOT, and become quite a fan of their song such as Candy, HaengBok (which later Super Junior sang the new version of it) and We Are The Future. From HOT, i knew Shinhwa, my first love of Korean Boyband.and then i knew Boa, my first love of Kpop female singer (No. 1 still my fave song until now). then i knew Fly To the Sky, which my 2nd love after Shinhwa. then i know about SES, Finkl, G.O.D, then TVXQ. so i mostly fallen in love with sme artists.

oh, btw, i put some sites in where it can backed up what i wrote in here, u can see those sites at the end of my rambling. but u also can look for those infos in the internet from other sites  than those i mentioned, since i just put several sites in here.those site just for backing me up, for all the things i said in here. 

when i heard HOT disbanded. i  felt a bit sad. i just knew about them n then i just found out that they disbanded. especially only kangta n moon hee jun stayed in sme. the other 3 didnt. i remember i was so confused at that time. why wont they stay with sme? they were so much success with sme. but that time, in my country, the access of Kpop was so limited, as people still in love with F4. but later when Shinhwa left sme, i found out, that when HOT disbanded, there was an issue  that one of the reason HOT disbanded were bcoz it seems the members, or at least the 3 who left sme, felt that they didnt receive enough royalties from their sales (1)  (as for each band member to receive royalties of less than 1 for every CD sold)  (2). didnt get enough royalties?  hmm.. sound so familiar guys?

oh by the way, those 3 members then made another band, JTL in which when they debut, SME asked various Korean entertainment broadcasts to blocked the music video (3) , or threatened if they bring JTL to their shows, sme will never let their artist to perform in that show. and suddenly, their schedules were cancelled, and their video never even made it on cable tv. thus they cant promoted their song (4). this incident drew angry fans to threw eggs to sme building (5). well, well, well, where have i heard about the EXACT blocked thingy attitude lately, i wonder???

and then shinhwa also left sme. i remember so clearly, i thought, “not again”, “what’s wrong with sme?why those artists left sme?” for people who wasnt so familiar with Shinhwa, during 1998-2004, shinhwa was just like TVXQ. HUGE SUCCESS, sold out concerts, winning awards everywhere. i remember so stunned when i watched a vcd of one of their concert. “so many people” i thought. thats why i didnt understand, why they want to left sme after 6years of success with sme? sme offered them 2nd contract, but they denied the offer, all the members refused. there’s also a legal dispute between sme-shinhwa (6). but shinhwa won the case, and then all the members left sme to another company.oh, just additional info, 2 of shinhwa members, Eric n Andy was rappers for one of  SES’ song (SES also from sme). and again, sound so familiar wasnt it?

several years later, i heard about TVXQ. that time i dont really pay attention to them, as i thought sme just want to make another shinhwa, since shinhwa left sme. but one of my bestfriend keep telling me about them, and the next things i know, i have fallen for them.

several months i joined the fandom, Jae, Chun n Su, left sme. i felt like HOT n Shinhwa all over again. at first, i keep believing that in the end, they will be together again. beside, sme wont let TVXQ broken apart, right? TVXQ are their money tree! so i believe, sme will learn from their past experience with HOT, JTL, Shinhwa even from Hankyung (who also have a legal battle in court with sme when he put a lawsuit of provisional disposition of the exclusive contract with SM Entertainment at the Seoul Central District Court) (7). but i guess they arent, are they?

at first, i really support all the 5. i was an ot5. i cheered when yunho chosen to be involved in MJ This Is It. i was drooling watching yunho dance with those hot outfit (how can he looked good in tight pants?). i watched HTTG. i waited n waited like crazy for changmin’s Paradise Ranch. i keep watching JYJ. i cried with them in 2009 MAMA. i cried during Thxgiving concert in Dome. i keep saying AKTF, TVXQ=5. i was still hoping they will together again n refuse to take a side.

but then, i see how unfair sme to our boys. by blocking them together with KFPCAI? by using their power to pressure tv stations? how can i keep believing with the 5? how can i didnt take a side?

i never, never, never, will badmouthing HoMin. but i have to admitted, when they comeback as TVXQ. just like i said. my hope for the 5 to be together again just gone. i never said they cant comeback, no! but JYJ didnt use TVXQ when they stand in Dome for Thxgiving concert. they use their name, in which then shortened to JJY before it changed to JYJ. in MAMA n Thxgiving con, i still believe they will together again. just like Jae message in 2009 MAMA. just like the W lyric. but suddenly, BAM!!! HoMin comeback as TVXQ. it seems like they closed the door for the 3 to come back (in which Junsu said the same thing). no, i never said they cant use TVXQ name. i just, until that time, i still believe what all those 5, including Yunho and Changmin said to us,“All five members have to be together to represent the name of ‘DBSK’– Yunho (8). “Only when the five of us are together, are we called TVXQ!” –  Changmin (9). and when they sang Rising Sun? i cant never able to watched it, i’m glad for them when ppl praised them said that they still can perform it well. but it hurt to remember that during Rising Sun periode, yunho and changmin really show their love, support n care for Jae who had a knee-injury that time. and when they won the award, yunho’s yell “jaejoong-ah” was one of my fave moment of the boys, coz they really didnt let anyone behind. eventho jae’s part only one line in Rising Sun song.

and i totally support jyj when in the court hearing on March 15, 2011 these facts were made public (10):

1. SME supposed to pay TVXQ 50 million KRW if the mirotic album sales reached 500k. but sme put only 480k being sold, thus the boys didnt get the 50 million KRW. Theres also an additional 44,000 usd to be paid for each member if the sales EXCEEDED 500k. but sme never paid this to the boys, for a reason, “it never reached 500k” but on January 8, 2009 sme themselves released a statement that Mirotic total sales was 502,837  and on the court, JYJ side show a prove that the album total sales was 540,000 copies. then sme’s side said they didnt paid the 50 million KRW bcoz the 3 didnt participated for the next album, in which then the court rejected this explanation (which btw, make me wonder, as HoMin DO participated in the next album, will they get the 50 million KRW then?)

2. during 2007-2008 sme should pay TVXQ usd 3 million for the concert and other concert-related activity.and other expenses were to be paid by PR agency not by TVXQ. but JYJ then (and i believe HoMin also) still being charged 800,000 usd for expenses, in which it should to be paid by the PR agency as promised.sme side said it was for expenses for another contract (and i was like “heeee? another contract?” even the judge asked what the meaning of this ‘another contract’ in which sme’s side failed to give further explanation).

3. sme said that they never paid TVXQ for non-regular activities (variety show like starking, xman, etc and performances in mnet, musicbank, etc), and it never showed in their accountant report bcoz those activities only paid 200-270 usd per activity. and this was written in the contract. can u imagine how many activities during those 5 years that have TVXQ attended? lets say they just attended 10 shows permonth, during 5 years it added up to 600 activities, with those sme got 120,000-170,000 usd. minimum!!

4. TVXQ have to paid for ALL expenses like music video production, new songs choreography, even showcase costs listed as their costs, which means they have to paid for ALL of those. not to mention they also have to paid for other expenses like food expenses, gas expenses, maid expenses, cleaning lady expenses, parking expenses, external security expenses… sme side said this include as ‘operation expenses’

and the most hillarious that even people in the court laughed;

5. sme denied that TVXQ are their most profittable artist. sme said that from 2008 overseas profit of 12,000,000 usd (or so), tvxq ONLY making 880,000 usd of it. not even reached 1,000,000 usd. the remaining 11,500,000 usd profit came from  Boa, Go Ara, CSJH, The Trax. so it means while TVXQ in overseas activity (japan for one) do all those amazing concert, sold so many albums, starred in CF’s,  they even cannot win from Go Ara (not i hate her, this just for comparison). hah! no wonder those people laughed on this statement.we all know AVEX stated that TVXQ’s (or THSK in Japan) income in 2009 were 2nd biggest after Ayumi Hamasaki. so how come their profit didnt even came as 1% of all overseas profit sme got?

6. sme keep saying they will provide the legal documents of what they said are the truths. but even until the 4th hearing, they cant provide those docs. and they keep postponing the verdict by claiming they are gathering the docs n evidences. how can this even possible? they do the reports n documented everything, as a company should, but when the court asked for this docs n evidences, they keep postponing bcoz they say that they are still gathering all those docs n evidences? dont they do all financial reports n keep all the documents?even i still keep my old bank book and credit card report from 2 years back.

i can rambling all days for this matter. but even with the latest hearing, we can see that:

A. if sme lied about Mirotic sales n refused to paid TVXQ their income n bonuses, how can u be sure they didnt do it in their other albums? its so obvious with Mirotic success, the boys should get those 30 mil krw n 440,000 usd bonus. but then sme proven didnt paid the boys. are u blaming JYJ if then they sue sme? sme keep saying it never be a problem before for JYJ about the income distribution. of course, before, they just accepted what sme told them. but as they are so success in SK, Japan n overseas, even stupid people can calculate roughly how MUCH money they should get. but to get nothing? and this isnt from chun’s song, this is a fact, as in the hearing, sme side admitted they didnt paid the 30 mil krw n the 440,000 usd bonus.

B. the boys didnt get the paid they were promised, but they have to paid for ALL expenses. i mean, ok, i understand for the food expenses, gas espenses, even the security. but they have to paid for music video production? for dance choreography? even for they showcase? heck, if they have to paid for all of this, so what sme paid as their agency?N-O-T-H-I-N-G!!! even parking expenses paid by the boys themselves!!!!

C. the boys MUST attend all activities related to their promotions of album or concert. but they never get paid for all of those, as sme got it all. but they have to paid for the dance choreography they will perform in those activites? to paid for laundry of those costumes they wear in those activities? jeez, and u all ask why JYJ want to be free from sme? if this how sme treated them, they dont need sme. as the boys themselves paid for all those mv production, dance choreography, dancer, costumes, laundry for those costumes, gas fee for their tour bus n company cars, the security to protected them (in which it supposed to be their company job to protected the boys) even the showcase itself!

C. they didnt even give credit for TVXQ hardwork, by saying that TVXQ didnt profit them enough, as they didnt even reach 1% of the total overseas profit. sme got it from their other artist. heck, they work their a** out, didnt care if they sick or tired, but sme then just said, “even then they didnt profitable enough for us’. what the heck, sme.

and dont forget, sme keep saying JYJ are under their contracts. but since the lawsuit, even when their albums still selling, their dvd (esp in japan) still selling, sme never gave the boys the payment. they claimed the boys are their artist, but they didnt give the boys their right. typicall!

so, now, tell me. is it wrong if JYJ want to leave? i dont know why HoMin stayed.maybe bcoz they are coming from a family who teach about loyalty. but sme themselves didnt hold the loyalty toward the boys. my country years ago, when we still colonized, the colony promised us freedom. but then they keep colonized us n didnt keep their promise of freedom. should we keep silent then? is it wrong if we want to be free? i’m glad my founding fathers fought for our freedom. coz now we are free.

i dont blame HoMin.its their choice n i respect them for that. but i’m will forever glad JYJ did broke free from sme. they arent the 1st for trying. JTL did, Shinhwa did so did Hankyung.JYJ just take the fight to another level. why other sme artist stayed in sme? i dont know. maybe they happy stayed there. when my bestfriend resigned from our old job, she said she had it enough with our company. but for me, at that time, i didnt feel what she felt. i was still comfortable work there, as all my collegues are like estended family.thus she left, i stayed. but then situation changed, i didnt feel comfy again, i want to felt another opportunity, thus i left. but my other collegues still stayed there. we still talk n meet. but our goal are different now.so maybe those artist still comfy with sme. beside dont forget, until now, only JTL, Shinhwa and Hankyung have guts to stand against sme. in Shinhwa case, they did finished their contract. In Hankyung’s case, until now, i never heard he come back to or have even one activity in SK. And look at JTL, maybe those artist take JTL as their example to never fight with sme.beside, dont forget, that there’s a clausal in sme contract that if one breaking the contract, they must paid a very HUGH amount of money if they leave. thus, it prevented them to leave.(4)

and i believe people will mad at me, and saying how can i know that sme really blocked  JYJ ? well, for starters:

1. sme did put injuction to prevent JYJ doing any promo for their worldwide album. and the court itself then put a fine for sme coz they said thatit has been recognized that there is a possibility that they will interfere with JYJ’s activities in the entertainment industry in the future” (11).even the court know about this.

2. remember 2009 MAMA? its not a secret that sme blocked MAMA by didnt let any of their artist to attend the award.(12) so eventho sme didnt said anything, do u think those station tv dare to take a risk by stand against sme?

3. when JYJ chosen as Jeju Island honorary ambassador for natural wonders vote, there’s a phone call frome Seoul to the Leader in charge of the natural 7 wonder work said that it wont help the promo by chose JYJ as the honorary ambassador.the SKKS team member himself said that “..it was probably someone from SM who called…” (13). even people in the entertainment itself know about this fact.

updated : on July 16, 2011, KBS Jeju cancelled JYJ performance at N7W event campaign, just 4 days before the event, and ‘coincidentally’ the performer changed to SNSD and F(x) from,  what do you know, SME’s artists. before the sudden cancellation, SNSD (who were on their very tight schedule,  since they are promoting for Japan. their schedules were so tight that they member, Sunny collapsed in stage due overexhaustion) and F(x) (who also busy with their album promotion) with SME never release a statement or confirmed that SNSD n F(x) gonna perform in the event, and the event arent included in their schedules. even their fans are shocked about this news, since from the schedule that being shown to fans before, this event werent in their schedules. this gather so many angry protests, from JYJ fans esp fans from overseas (many were from Japan), who have bought airplane tickets, booked hotel and arranged their schedule to come for the performance to watched JYJ. KBS never gave proper explanation for this nor they provided to pay for the fans who then cancelled their tickets to the performance, and SME didnt even said anything in why ‘suddenly’ it were their artists performing for an event, in which JYJ, the official goodwill ambassador, got cancelled. but for so many people, i believe you can go figure why. esp by then, public have believe, it was sme who put a backdoor presure for the cancellation (16). and even the Jeju senator also condemn this act and asked clarification from KBS (17). at the event, you can see from KBS camera, fancams or fanaccount that the event wasnt as successfull or ‘effective’ (as to cancelled JYJ) as KBS said, since it less than 400 people attended the event.

if u need another prove about how sme treated their artists badly even like a prisoner, than hear what Isak whom still have to finished her 10 yrs contract with sme until 2012 said, “[T]hey were afraid that we would sneak out. They would put in a house phone for us, and we couldn’t call from our cell phones. We had to call from our house phone to our manager as soon as we walk[ed] in the door [to inform them] that we came in.”, “No dating,” she said. “You get caught, you pay consequences.”, “I was threatened that if I didn’t break up with my boyfriend then I would be either cut from SM or not [be] able to debut.” and here’s her words toward her experience of believing sme’s promise to their trainee/soon-to-be-artist before they debut, that they (sme) will keep their artists good n well, but in fact they all must face with ‘long contracts and hidden fees’, They [the management companies] promise before you debut, ‘we’re going to house you, we’re going to feed you, we’re going to give you all the lessons you need. Do your best’ and then we think that that’s all free,” remembered Isak. She soon learned, however, that all the expenses that went into her upkeep, including stylists, salon visits, manager fees, food, and clothing, were deducted from her pay (14). And i believe some of you didnt forget about what happened to Hankyung that caused him put the lawsuit, “Hangeng has not had any rest in 2 years, causing him to suffer from fatigue, which also resulted in chronic gastritis, illnesses related to his kidney, lumbar disc herniation, as well as a visible decrease in body strength. However, SM Entertainment rejected Hangeng’s requests for rest, and continued to schedule activities for him, which caused Hangeng to suffer a lot of pain.“, ” Due to contract obligations and heavy penalties, even during bad health, he was not to skip any scheduled activities.”, “Because of these kind of health problems, (he) has continuously put forward requests to rest, but has always been rejected.” “Through their manager, Hankyung requested from SM for leave to return to China to rest but he was rejected every single time.” (7).

but like i said. i’m glad JYJ chose to left sme. look how much they are growing. composer, directing, acting, musical, honorary ambassador.they can do what they never allowed to do when they stayed in sme. we all know they cant chose what they want to do and what they didnt (well, sme accused the cosmetic jyj invested was the seed of the lawsuit, since sme said jyj insisted to invested in the cosmetic company. i mean, hey, its their money, their rights to decide what they want to do with it right? but nooo, sme use this in their defense of the lawsuit). they didnt even know abouth their schedules, since it always decided by sme. but look at JYJ now. they have their freedon now. and with that, they can do quality activities. their self compose song proven to be a very good songs. and they own the song rights. when in sme, the rights went to sme.

i will always love the old TVXQ. they will always have a special place in my heart.  i still hope to see the 5 sing in 1 stage again. those harmony just too regretful to be wasted, to be forgotten n abandoned. but most of all, i want my boys to be happy. JYJ are happy now. and if HoMin happy by staying with sme. thats their choice.i do regret TVXQ cant be like shinhwa, the longest Kpop band still together until now.but i believe JYJ are making history. coz i refuse to believe, if JYJ win, and the entertainment industry have to change their unjust policy, i refuse to believe that other Kpop artist,  still gonna just sit n accept what their company nowadays do to them.

i’m glad they are moving forward. they arent idol who just going from one show to another.being in the news for being photographed in some event. being mentioned occasionally by another artist. they arent just a doll idol. they arent celebrity who just do what their company told them to do. with their freedom, now JYJ have proven themselves by doing a very good job.achieved things they cant n maybe they wont ever achieve if they stay in sme. they show their work in their own sold out concerts. by performing in a sold out musical and won praises from lots of people, not only fans. by being casted in good dramas. by being the 1st Kpop Boyband to be featured in Billboard Magazine. by getting awards as best rookie in Japan (jae), best newcomer in musical (junsu), winning 3 awards from 1 drama (yoo chun), by being chosen as OKTA goodwill ambassador in which the participants of the events including President n Minister of SK, by being the drector for their own world wide concert in asia (jae), for being a part of directing team in 1 prestigious gala show what will attended by international atheltes (jae),  for being a nominee for best actor in musical from his 2nd musical (junsu), for sold his yet to air drama with a very high price to japan (chun). then tell me. with all those achievement, can u blame them that they wanna break out from sme? coz if they didnt, we never see them achieve all of those achievement.

so, please, dont bash JYJ for wanting to be free, to get justice, to be paid fairly. looking at how hard these boys work, is it wrong to wanting it? even us, when we work, we always want a better salary, better environment, better career oppurtunity, etc. do we judge people too when they resigned from their old  job bcoz they want to look for a better job? or when they resigned bcoz they got accepted from another company that will pay them better?

if you really open your heart and mind, and really look JYJ latest development, you can see that, trully its not only a matter of money, that they did what they did. coz if they are greedy as people say they are, they wont paid their USA showcase with their own money. they can just go back without continuing it. people will understand, coz its not their own will that the showcase was cancelled. but they still hold the showcase. not only they pay for all the expenses from their own pocket, they made those concerts free so their fans still can see they perform. if they are really greedy,  junsu wont choose to be involved in musical, the payment not as much as doing a concert. chun wont so selective to involved in drama, he will take any drama he can take. jae wont chose to be involved as director in a gala show.its better for him to be involved in CFs as or to be in magazine like the one with Elle, coz we know how he is in high demand for those kind of activities.but they choose their activity carefully. and then chose to be involved in quality activities which didnt pay much.if they really greedy and just want to get more money, they can just do easy jobs that offer big payment.

again, i didnt write this for bashing  HoMin. if u paid attention, the people i mentioned with a displeased was only SME. but i just want people to understand, as much as we want to be free to do what we want to do, to get what we deserved to get, so does JYJ. i dont and wont hate HoMin. i will pray for their success, as JYJ did pray for HoMin’s success (15). and again, my rambling isnt about who hurt the most, JYJ or HoMin. coz i believe they do love n care each other, so both parties are hurt.this about my hope for people to understand, to see, to accepted, why JYJ did what they did. i dont say JYJ are the right one n HoMin are the wrong one. no! what i’m saying is, sme did have part n be the reason of why JYJ chose to do the lawsuit, to be free from sme. and as u can see, esp since the last hearing when all sme lies n unjust attitude toward TVXQ, both as person, and also as artists under their company and toward their contract, all of those were revealed, that i dont tell lies, i dont make up facts, i’m not some stupid-overly-hallusinatic-and-overly-biased-fangirl. those facts have made public, in front of SK court of law. thus all the facts are TRUE.

I will keep the memory of those 5 in my heart. i will always love TVXQ with wll the 5 members together, Xiah Junsu, Micky Yoochun, Youngwoong Jaejoong, Uknow Yunho, and Choikang Changmin. i will always love their love for each other, their brotherhood, their passion for music, their smart, funny, handome, dorky personality. but most of all, i will love the beauty of harmony they bring when they singing as 5. TVXQ5 will always be my beautiful memory. until the 5 of them decided to singing together again in 1 stage. as TVXQ again, or JYJ+DBSK. but i really hope JYJ will win the lawsuit. so then other artists wont experience what Isak, JTL, Shinhwa, Hankyung, and of course JYJ have experienced. those artists make us happy, its only fair that they are happy too.
