TVXQWERTY, sashay away! JYJ wins against Max & AVEX!


Following their settlement with SM Entertainment last year, JYJ seems to have rid themselves of another lawsuit by claiming victory against their former Japanese management Avex.

C-JeS Entertainment confirmed the news by commenting, “During the trial in Japan on the 18th, it was ruled that Avex cannot interfere with the Japanese promotional activities of JYJ.”

To recap, JYJ and Avex suspended their exclusive contract back in 2010 and as the conflict of promoting in Japan escalated between them, Avex had released a public notice that falsely claimed that C-JeS’s CEO was affiliated with gangsters and brought about the halt of promotions in Japan for the group. They also insisted that they had sole management over JYJ’s Japanese activities and interfered with the group’s attempt to put on a charity concert back in 2011, which led to the lawsuit.

According to C-JeS, the Japanese court ruled that Avex cannot insist on JYJ’s sole management in Japan, and ordered the management company to pay JYJ’s agency C-JeS Entertainment 660 million Yen (~ 7.3 million USD). The court also acknowledged the fact that Avex has defamed C-JeS’s CEO, and as such, ruled that they also pay the CEO 1 million Yen (~11,000 USD).

In response to the ruling received in court today (18th), Avex has already made it clear through an announcement on their homepage that they cannot accept the decision and that they will be filing an appeal.

With this ruling, it seems that JYJ may be able to start promoting in Japan again.

LOL @ Max attempting to appeal to by more time to squeeze out what little money Ayu and Kuu have left in their joint account. Time to make some more deals with the Yakuzas sis because JYJ is taking you all the way to the bank!

Like I said in the other forum, hope to see JYJ active in Japan again. JJ's need to be the social butterfly and hangout with Japanese celebs or having his own cooking show on TV. Yoochun need to hangout with the comedians from Shabekuri 007 and go out eating edamame, while I need Junsu to do sexy moves on MSta again ^^

And I need Max Matsuura to eat his words or some dusts >.>

Wow didn't expect so few comments >.<

I'm glad that they finally won the lawsuit. Hope to see JYJ resume their activities in Japan soon.

Since JYJ aren't going back to avex, which label do you think they should go to? I want them to go with Sony, but then I remembered Ami Suzuki and figured "nah." Universal probably won't take them since SM wants to keep their acts (SNSD in this case) away from JYJ. I heard some people on Omona say they might sign with Pony Canyon. What do you guys think?

Universal would make more sense given their sound but pony canyon seems to be the front runner

the problem that suzuki ami had was due to her management company and it would've had the same result had she been signed on avex or pc or zetima or universal or any other label.

J storm /slapped /bricked
Actually I don't really care. I just want to see my biases hang out with each other :P
regardless of which label, I just want JYJ to have activities in Japan again and appear in some TV programs

Tokuma? nah they need to stay away from that. what about Victor entertainment? (SMAP's label) or maybe King records (AKB's)
anduril_narsil 20th-Jan-2013 01:48 am (UTC)
I thought they already with Warner Music? So the same company is probably gonna handle Japanese distribution.

I said this on the omona thread but this was the one they needed to win. They can make extreme bank in Japan (they were doing so prior to avex's block and after the split) without promoting in Korea. I'm glad they now can promote together now

correction: jaejoong is a star in Japan. When I went there last year, Jj's poster was pimped up at the entrance of a kpop&jpop shop at harajuku. oh wait, it's november now. I guess u saw how jj did with his album without much promotion.
