23 Jul - It was revealed that the final decision pertaining to the case of SM Entertainment and members of JYJ (also former members of DBSK) has been postponed.
According to Allkpop website, the ruling that was supposed to be held on 19 July at the Seoul Central District Court was pushed back and rescheduled to 10 August.
Initially, both sides were set to be present at the Seoul Central District Court for the ruling on July 19th at 10AM KST, but Korean news site have reported that the meeting has been postponed.
This would be the sixth time for the agency and the trio to work out a solution since May 2011. However, as there is no reconciliation between both parties, the trial was resumed at the end of last year.
In 2009, Kim Jun-su, Park Yoo-chun and Kim Jae-joong filed an injunction against SM Entertainment due to unfair exclusive contracts with the agency. It was retaliated with a lawsuit in April 2010 by the agency, confirming validity of the exclusive contract and filing a claim of damage.
JYJ then followed with a counterclaim, saying that the contract was invalid. In February 2011, the courts dismissed all claims from SM Entertainment against JYJ and declared the exclusive contract null and void - allowing JYJ to continue their activities in the entertainment industry.
If JYJ wins the case, SM Entertainment would have to acknowledge JYJ as a separate official group than DBSK.
