SM Entertainment has released their official stand on the case.
They said on 1st August morning, “It is true that Xiah, Hero and Micky made the application for provisional disposition to terminate the exclusive rights effects from their contract on 31st July at the district court. With that the company is very taken back by the action, we are trying to get confirm all the truth from them currently. “
They continued, “But as a representative group to the country and to Asia, our stand is that activities for Dong Bang Shin Ki have to continue even with this disposition application. And about the problems arising from the discussion to do a cosmetic entreprise, we plan to talk over them and sort out the problems as soon as possible.”
It has been know that members YunHo and ChangMin has decided not to take part in this lawsuit. Both of them are currently preparing for their drama debut this September and year-end.

Jaejoong, Junsu and Yoochun did request a disposition (note: not a lawsuit yet) asking SM to release them from their contracts. Yunho and Changmin aren’t involved. This isn’t just a rumour, it’s FACT. What remains a rumour is DBSK breaking up, although if the three win (which they are very likely to – read below) then it is a possibility. ‘DBSK‘ and ‘DBSK Disposition’ are hot issues on Korean portal sites right now and articles keep being uploaded, and it looks like SM is removing old posts by the members on their official website.
- The three members and the lawyer have been in contact discussing this issue for over 2 months now.
- They tried to negotiate a deal with SM Entertainment to resolve this issue in the best way possible but they could not reach an agreement.
- Therefore, they were forced to request a provisional disposition on the 31st against SM Entertainment to have them released from their contracts.
- The main reasons for them wanting to be released from their contracts include the fact that their contracts were basically like slave contracts.
- Their contracts were for 13 years.
- Their earnings are split 8:2 or 9:1 (with the smaller numbers being the five members and the larger numbers being SM Entertainment. For comparison, JYP Entertainment splits 5:5 with their groups even the new ones.).
- *Other reasons being mentioned, though not by the lawyer, include the members being overworked and SM Entertainment not being happy with the make up business the three started with their parents.
- If SM Entertainment does not release them from their contracts, they are prepared to file a lawsuit and go to trial.
- An official statement regarding this issue will be released by the three members soon.
SM’s side of the story (straight from the mouth of their representatives):
- They admit that there has been some disagreement between them and DBSK recently but they are ‘shocked’ that DBSK took the issue to court.
- They are currently having an emergency meeting and will release an official statement soon.
While DBSK probably makes the most money in SM Entertainment, don’t think for a second that SM Entertainment is smart enough to keep them. Look at H.O.T. (LSM denied they were breaking up when articles began to appear about them breaking up just like they are now about DBSK; a few days later H.O.T. announced they were breaking up) and Shinhwa (SM only wanted to negotiate new contracts with two of the members; they are amazing for being able to leave SM Entertainment TOGETHER and buy the name Shinhwa from SM Entertainment).
On the other hand, note that the three asked to be released from their current contracts. This doesn’t necessarily mean that DBSK are breaking up or that the members are leaving SM Entertainment (they could sign new contracts).
The only thing you can be sure of is the fact that the three members are not happy with their current contracts and would like to be released from them.

One of Asia’s biggest group Dong Bang Shin Ki, has 3 of its members in a possible lawsuit against their own company SM Entertainment.
Dong Bang Shin Ki members Xiah JunSu, Micky YooChun and Hero JaeJoong had gone to Seoul Central District Court to hand in an application for provisional disposition to terminate all effects of their exclusive belonging rights contract with SM on 31st July.
It has been known that their reasons for doing so is that the contract with SM Entertainment has many irrelevant conditions attached. It is also known that the content to the contract the 3 members cannot agree to includes having them belonging exclusively to SM Entertainment for 13 years and also unhappiness over profit allocation.
The lawyer responsible for this case said, “We are currently preparing for a lawsuit against SM for this contract. (About the reasons to why) We cannot reveal the details now.”
There has also been saying that the 3 members have differing views to SM on their upcoming ‘Dong Bang Shin Ki cosmetic enterprise expansion’.
Currently out of the 3 members, JunSu is already doing a cosmetic business with his parents. It is said that there were plans for the company to operate a cosmetic business, with sheep placenta as the main ingredient, using the group’s name as the brand name in Seoul GangNam and GyeongGiDo IlSan. It is said that there were also plans for the business to be launched in China bringing in hundreds millions KRW in profit.
But it has been said that the 2 sides are having some differing views and also complications arose through their discussion on how the product and brand will go.
One of the Korean new media has known through phone call from SM and SM said, “We are aware that some of the DBSK members have some disagreements with the company, but we do not know that they have sparked a lawsuit with the company. The director board of the company is currently having an urgent meeting in an undisclosed place in Seoul to discuss about their countermeasures.”
They also added, “We will have our official stand asap”.
Korean fans are in chaos right now! I, myself, am having a hard time digesting this news. I was hoping this was all a rumor but SM released a statement so I guess that pretty much confirms it. I know I shouldn’t panic but this is just simply terrifying. Accordingly, Yunho and Changmin intend to stay with SM so it ‘s highly possible that DBSK might DISBAND! God I hope not!
Let’s all pray they’ll be able to resolve this. And let’s try not panic until we hear the official statements. God what a mess!
DBSK are in the middle of their 3rd Asia Concert Tour – Mirotic.
One of Korea’s longest standing boy bands Dong Bang Shin Ki are still going strong. They performed at Impact Arena in Bangkok on the 27 and 28 June, 2009. The arena was filled with 30, 200 screaming fans. DBSK kicked off their Mirotic tour in Seoul this February and the show in Bangkok had the same stage setup complete with giant screens and state of the art sound system. Only the best for their fans right? The fans in Thailand got a good dose of their idols.
DBSK sang songs from their Mirotic album such as ‘Wrong Number’ and ‘Crazy Love’. They also sang songs from their older albums Rising Sun, HUG and Balloons.
Xiah Junsu performed XIAHTIC much to the fans’ delight. However, he was supposed to perform it with SHINee‘s Key, but the latter was busy promoting his own single ‘Juliette’ elsewhere. Guess who stood in for Key? None other than Xiah’s own bandmate Micky Yoochun. Fans were surprised and excited when Micky took over the rap parts in XIAHTIC.
Dong Bang Shin Ki is scheduled to perform in Japan’s Tokyo Dome on the 4th and 5th of July! Watch out for them!
Business is doing quite good for DBSK member Yoochun. His ice cream shop TimeOut Gelato is getting more and more crowded every day – with fan girls of course. Hoping to catch a glimpse of the hot singer I guess?
Well, Yoochun may be nowhere in sight but his cutie brother Yoohwan and pretty mom are more than ready to serve and entertain you.
Mommy gamely poses for the camera. She looks so young.
Nice to see Yoohwan (middle) helping out in the family business. Isn’t he hot?

Micky Yoochun’s TimeOut Gelato is now officially open to serve you! The opening day was originally set last May 2nd but it has been delayed to the 9th. Now fans can visit the shop and possibly catch a glimpse of him! If you get lucky, he might even serve you.
Between performing with DBSK and writing his own songs , it’s truly impressive that he has managed to add being a businessman to his long list of accomplishments. Yoochun’s venture in this kind of business didn’t come as a surprise though because he once revealed in 8 vs 1 that he wanted to open an ice cream shop for his mother.
TimeOut Gelato Bars is a franchise that started in Thailand and is quite known for being the country’s No.1 Homemade Ice Cream Parlour. They pride themselves in making ‘Real Ice Cream’ – freshly produced daily on site using the latest machines and only the highest quality ingredients imported all the way from Italy.
You might not get to see him but every corner’s filled with his pictures. Just imagine him staring at you as you feast on his ice cream. Hmm..that sounded inappropriate. LOL
If Yoochun’s HOTNESS doesn’t lure you (highly doubtful!), then maybe the sight of these creamy and luscious ice cream is enough to make you drop by his shop for a taste of finest quality Italian gelato.
Figure conscious? No worries. Accordingly, the fruit flavors are 100% fat free and the milk flavors are 94% fat free. Now that’s what you call healthy!
Planning to work there? Forget it. Yoochun only hired male workers because they’re less likely to create troubles. Can you just imagine the place being managed by fans? Complete chaos.
ETN News has decided and here’s their list of celebrities who look good naturally. Whatever that means. Is it looking good without undergoing surgery? I don’t think so because I could pinpoint few stars on the list who I’m sure went under the knife. Or maybe it’s looking good even without makeup and stuff? Oh well. No surprise on who made it to the top though.
