It has been confirmed that three members of TVXQ, YoungWoong Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun and Xiah Junsu, have filed for a Exclusive Contract Validity Suspension and Provisional Disposition Request against SM Entertainment and have also filed for a Preservation of Evidence Request.
The Preservation of Evidence Request refers to, "Any account books, contracts, receipts, transfer slips or any other documents that will aid in calculating the exact income and expenditure of the requester," and this was done to calculate the exact amount of money TVXQ earns.
There is more controversey to come as a statement was released that the members of TVXQ, till now, have never received information about the contents of their Japanese contract.
In 2005, TVXQ signed a contract with Avex Entertainment, one of the largest agencies in Japan, through SM Entertainment and have been working with both entertainment agencies ever since.
However, till now, the members of TVXQ have no idea what kind of contract the two agencies formed, and how their income is being divided in Japan.
A representative of the law firm that is helping the three members had a phone conversation with this reporter and stated, "Ever since TVXQ started their activities in Japan, they have never been given any information about how their income is divided or what their contract consists of."
He also said, "We have tried numerous times to tell the agencies that what they are doing is unlawful and tried to convince them to show TVXQ the contract, but both agencies have been ignoring us," and "The members have been diligently working for this company without even knowing exactly what kind of contract they are under."
The Sejong law firm lawyer who is in charge of this lawsuit informed reporters in an interview of the problems regarding unfair division of income and complete honesty with the members and also stated that "We have not discarded the notion of filing for compensation later on."
Avex Entertainment, who is in charge of all of TVXQ's Japanese activities, wrote on their ofiicial website on August 1st and stated that TVXQ will continue on with their activities regardless of the current lawsuit.
