SM Entertainment has withdrawn its album sales prohibition injunction against JYJ (TVXQ’s YoungWoong Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun and Xiah Junsu)’s first album ‘The Beginning’.
On the 12th of this month, SM filed for an album sales prohibition injunction against JYJ’s first global album ‘The Beginning’ as well as an exclusive contract suspension injunction against the contract between JYJ and CJeS. On the 21st, SM Entertainment decided to withdraw only the part of the injunction regarding the prohibition on album sales.
SM revealed the reason behind this decision by stating, “We have withdrawn the lawsuit after deciding that an album sales prohibition injunction was impractical as JYJ have already released the album.”
JYJ’s side has also confirmed this stating, “SM Entertainment filed an album sales prohibition injunction against Warner Music Korea, the company in charge of distributing JYJ’s albums, on October 12th, and withdrew the aforementioned lawsuit on the 21st through the Seoul District Courts. Warner Music Korea received an official document regarding this on the 22nd.”
However, SM will still initiate a head on confrontation with the exclusive contract suspension injunction directed at JYJ and CJeS. SM has stated that as the verdict has not been made on the lawsuit between SM and JYJ, a contract signed between the trio and CJeS would be considered a dual-contract.
