The first hearing of the lawsuit between the three members of TVXQ, YoungWoong Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun and Xiah Junsu, and their agency SM Entertainment began at 10:20 am on the 21st.
At this hearing, the three members' lawyer explained their unlawful exclusive contract in reference to the contract period and the unfair income division. But the lawyer did not talk of the cosmetic company that SME stated was the real reason behind this lawsuit.
When the judge asked the lawyer why he did not refer to the cosmetic company, the three members' lawyer stated, "The cosmetic company is not a big deal and entering the cosmetic business is the most common venture among celebrities," and "We did not feel that money was the problem in this lawsuit so we did not talk about it on its own."
He also said, "The trust the three members had with SME was destroyed because of reasons such as the extremely long period of their exclusive contract and the questionable income division that SME has stated. It has become hard for both sides to have a good celebrity-agency relationship," and "We hope this lawsuit will become a chance for TVXQ to have a free contract in which they are allowed to pursue any free and creative activities that they wish to partake in."
