TVXQ's three members asked for a suspension of their exclusive contract against SM Entertainment and the first hearing occurred on the 21st.
Seoul District Court's Judge Park Byungdae, after listening to both sides, said, "We think the best way to solve this dispute is for the two sides come to a mutual agreement, when we put the responsibility for biggest fan club in the world and*and the relationship with the other two members into consideration."The judge stated, "If both side would like to set a settlement date that will not be open to the public, that can be arranged," and urged both sides to come to a mutual agreement.The Courts agreed to both sides' wishes of ending this dispute early on and will come to a decision after examining all the related materials handed in on September 11th which is 3 weeks after this first hearing.The lawyer representing the three members said, "They do not want a disbandment of TVXQ," and "There are cases where teams stay together even if the members are in different agencies."Also, when the Courts asked whether they wanted a 'cancellation of their contract' or a 'revision of their contract', the lawyer replied, "It depends on how competent SM Entertainment will be to support TVXQ's transition from an idol group to a more mature artist group," and "The opportunities are endless."SM Entertainment's lawyer said, "Although the three members who filed this lawsuit are not having their right violated, the agency is losing a lot of money due to this trial so we wish for it to end quickly and for TVXQ to start their activities again," and "The only reason SME asked the three members to not participate in the Chinese cosmetic company branch was because the agency feared that TVXQ's image might be damaged in some way; the agency had no other intentions."The Courts said, "As long as this lawsuit has been filed, please refrain from talking about or attack the other side through the media."TVXQ's three out of five members, Xiah Junsu (Kim Junsu), YoungWoong Jaejoong, (Kim Jaejoong) and Micky Yoochun (Park Yoochun), stated that "Our 13 year exclusive contract can basically be seen as a life contract, and we did not receive proper treatment from SME in many aspects such as income division," and filed their lawsuit on July 31st.
another one:SME Complains About The Preservation Of Evidence Request
SM Entertainment filed an appeal regarding the preservation of evidence request the three members of TVXQ filed recently.SME's side filed for their appeal at the first hearing that began on the 21st at 10:20am.SME's side stated, "Some of the receipts and other documentation used to calculate TVXQ's income are the company's secret information. Therefore, it could be fatal to SME if these forms *of documentation were revealed to the media."The Courts explained a 'In Camera' system that they use which will invalidate SME's claims. The 'In Camera' system is a system in which only a few select people are able to see the important files or the business' secrets in an enclosed area.This appeal makes people question how accurately the Courts will be able to calculate the actual income of TVXQ.

Lee Min-Woo said, "(TVXQ) are excellent juniors that I recognise. A few months ago, they even had a chat with me about problems in life... I could tell that the members have very deep feelings for the group. At the back stage, they would hold each others' hands and pray, say good luck; the way they cheer each other on is very similar to us. (T/N: He meant Shinhwa) Because they are a group which *has very good team spirit, I believe in TVXQ.""My dear younger brothers, TVXQ does not just belong to TVXQ. Don't think too much and over-complicate things, just keep thinking about your fans who have spent precious times with you and who have always protected you. I hope that all of you can steadfastly protect the proud name of TVXQ. You definitely can't disband, Hyung (T/N: Older brother) is counting on you. After the current issue is *is resolved, the 11 of us should go out and have fun."
