[NEWS] JYJ Won – Tokyo District Court ordered Compensation from AVEX
(Seoul Union News) On the 18th, Seoul District Court sentenced an order to AVEX, management agent of Korea’s popular group JYJ in Japan, to prohibit the agent’s right to monopolize the management of JYJ in Japan. AVEX was also ordered to pay 660 million yen (7.36 million USD) as reparation to JYJ’s Korean management company, C-JeS.
In addition, AVEX must pay 1 million yen (11,000 USD) as damages to the representative of C-JeS for defamation charges.
C-JeS side commented, “Japan Court’s acknowledgement of the interference of AVEX in JYJ’s activities in Japan and ruled to prohibit such actions made us very happy. With this ruling, JYJ hopes to resume their activities in Japan as soon as possible.”
While they were involved in the lawsuit with former Korean management agent SM Entertainment, JYJ signed a management contract with AVEX via C-JeS in Feb 2010. However, when AVEX disagrees with C-JeS on the scope of JYJ’s activities, AVEX began to claim that the representative of C-JeS is linked with doubtful groups (mafia, gangsters) and one-sidedly terminated all JYJ’s activities in Japan in Sept 2010.
C-JeS requested for terminating the exclusive contract with AVEX but, AVEX insisted its right to the exclusivity of managing JYJ in Japan and rejected this request.
