JYJ and SM Entertainment have reportedly come to an agreement just moments ago, with both parties withdrawing lawsuits against each other and agreeing to go their separate ways.
After what seems like forever, the two sides are reported to have come to a mutual agreement on the 28th.
It is said that SM Entertainment and JYJ have both withdrawn all lawsuits against one another, and have agreed to not interfere with any of each other’s activities.
The long drawn out fight was started back in July 31st, 2009 when the initial lawsuit was filed against SM Entertainment by the three members of JYJ, who were part of TVXQ, requesting for the cancellation of their contracts. Since then, the two sides failed to each an agreement every time and was due back in court again later this year.
If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is, right? Well, this sounds too simple, thus we should probably wait for details.
“Agreed to not interfere with any of each other’s activities.”
What? That’s the thing though, what was JYJ interfering with? You have to wonder then what exactly SME is getting out of this, hence my skeptical eye to this “deal”.
Basically, I’m writing about this because it’s significant news and I feel like I should be, but with little to no actual details on what it means yet, all I can basically say about it is, “Please don’t overreact and just wait for the specifics.”
Put it this way, the chances that everything is now all good is remote, but people on Twitter and shit are celebrating like they just got a political prisoner released from jail or something.
I would think that the TVXQ fandom would have become cynical by now, especially on the JYJ side after everything they’ve endured, and the last thing I would be willing to do is trust that SME just agreeably dropped everything.
