TVXQ and SM Entertainment’s first court hearing took place today August 21st, 2009 at 11:40am KST.
TVXQ’s lawyer stated “TVXQ members are very upset about the entire situation, but hopes that the lawsuit will end well.” In addition, “We do not want TVXQ to split up. And even if they do change management companies, there is still a chance that TVXQ will remain together.”
Fans of group Dong Bang Shin Ki are fuming with anger. The first hearing for the 3 Dong Bang Shin Ki members Xiah JunSu, Micky YooChun and Hero JaeJoong on their lawsuit against SM Entertainment to retract the exclusive belonging contract effects will be held on 21st August.
And a fan who operates Dong Bang Shin Ki fan community site DSite submitted a petition signed by 120K people opposing SM’s ‘Unjust contract’ on 20th August at the Seoul Central Court.
The petition, consisting of 12 books, contains the signature of 121,073 fans from offline and online, and it also includes the activity schedule of Dong Bang Shin Ki from when they debuted in 2003 all the way to 2009.
Meanwhile, the group’s fans also posted up advertisements on newspaper about the case:
“What is your work environment like?
1. You must work for at least 13 years
2. You must work 7 days a week of every month of every year
3. Someone else is in charge of your entire income. It is impossible to negotiate on your income
SM Town 2009
After skipping out on 2008, SM Entertainment’s popular SM Town compilation series returns in 2009 with 09 Summer SM Town. Though it arrives amid controversy, 09 Summer SM Town gives fans plenty to be excited about. There are only four tracks this time, but they’re delivered by Dong Bang Shin Ki, Super Junior, and SHINee! The three super boy bands team up for the bright and breezy summer number “Seaside Stopover (Boom Boom)”. The idol-powered mini-album continues with three more new summer songs, one from each group. Dong Bang Shin Ki offer “12:34 (Nothing Better)”, Super Junior keep things cheery with Carnival, and SHINee make their SM Town debut with SCAR. And for those wondering what happened to the girls, they’ll headline 09 Winter SM Town later in the year.

Exclusive in the Philippines only. This is the project of a Filipina Cassie and I don’t think she accepts orders from other countries. Not that big time yet >_< But the effort is cool! ^^
DBSK statement shirts which basically have “Aways Keep the Faith [text]” on them. I don’t know whether they come in just white or if you may request for other color (besides it the statement that matters right?). And the price..please just transact HERE
Other statement shirts which include SNSD, Super Junior, Wonder Girls and Big Bang just check them out here or better yet explore the site xD
I am not in any way the proprietor of that wonderful site. The owner of that site doesn’t know that i am promoting these products here (and I hope she doesn’t mid T.T). I just found these statement shirts touching (at least for all Cassies out there in the philippines) so I decided to share them here.
DBSK Fighting! We are always keeping the faith ^^

Let us “ALWAYS KEEP THE FAITH” in our boys…
Look at Yoochun’s tattoo…I really think it reads on as always keep the faith which is really cool (if it reads as that ^^)

DBSK Xiah, Micky and Hero’s official stand about their discord with SM, Wednesday(August 3,2009,Korea)
OMG!breaking news! I should have been studying but needed to post this IMMEDIATELY…
Idol group Dong Bang Shin Ki’s members Micky YooChun,and Xiah JunSu finally revealed their stand about their problems with SM Entertainment.
Their representative revealed through news media on, “The 5 years period after they debuted, the 3 of them felt that their minds and their bodies are tired having to follow the tight schedule that the company put up unilaterally.”
They continued, “Kim JunSu,and has been following SM’s instruments from beginning of 2004 till now, going back and forth promoting in Korea, Japan, China etc, and in a year except for 1 week they get only 3-4 hours of sleep a day to do our schedule.”
Also, “In the process the health of the 3 members are very much deteriorated, they are also suffering from mental fatigue, and as time went SM continue to established on their own decision for Dong Bang Shin Ki to advance into other countries. In the end the 3 members felt that as compared to be fulfilling their dreams to be singers, they are used more as a tool by the compared to earn profits, and they wish to use each of the members to also go into other entertainers’ activities.”
The 3 members’ representative also added, “It is a 13 years contract but in reality it is a lifetime contract. With the exclusive rights clause in the contract, the 13 years also include the time the members are serving their military service, hence it will go for more than 15 years. And now it has not even been near to 10 years since the group’s debut, hence it seems like the contract will last until the members’ retirement from the entertainment zone. The penalty for retracting the exclusive right clause is 3 times the investment cost and 2 times the lost in earnings. They also asked about the penalty of cancelling the whole contract but it will involve several hundred billions KRW of penalty, hence in reality there is no way out but to be tied down to SM because of the contract.”
Also, “The members did not receive the right treatment even from SM. Without getting any contract fees, the initial contract was that if their album sells more than 500K copies, each member will get about 10 million KRW during the next album release. If they sell less than 500K copies of album, they will get nothing.”
The 3 members had went down to Seoul Central District Court to file for a retractile of their exclusive belonging rights with SM Entertainment on 31st July, causing an outrage of speculations about the group’s disbanding and also problems between the members and SM.
i think SME should be #1 Slave Company…watch out SM there are millions and millions of Cassies out there who’ll murder you…kyaaaaa!
To those who plan to bash…thinking about the situation and the way SME had been doing business ever since…I think anyone would be in favor of the boys…though there may be those who’ll think the boys owe the Great SM Entertainment…read and check some of the contract details enumerated above…and take note that the boys were trying to live their dreams as singers but maybe realized that they are being made slaves…I’d support any artist being treated this way…no matter if they weren’t DBSK…I think most would do too…
