The darker side of TVXQ Kpop
Unfortunately, Kpop isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. A number of the teams pointed out in Chapter 3 have actually undergone controversies as well as legal actions. There are other aspects too. It’s a frightening globe around!
Idols Versus Firms
Idols authorize what is called the “servant agreement” with their firms. The agreement terms are years long and also often rigid. Most problems have to do with unequal pay, savage schedules, and functioning problems.
It’s not a trick that the idols are exhausted. It’s unfortunately usual to see them pale during a performance while recording a variety show or at the airport. As fans, we want to see our predispositions and have new tracks to pay attention to. At the same time, we want they’ll have time to rest as well!
As briefly stated in the past 증권디비 2, TVXQ was a 5-member team at its launching in 2003 and also is currently a duo.
In 2009, members Jaejoong, Yoochun, as well as Junsu submitted a claim. They declared that their agreement was too lengthy (13 years!), they really did not have sufficient civil liberties, as well as there was unequal profit circulation. During this, the trio kept their contract with Avex Japan.
The other 2 members, Yunho well as Changmin, launched a public declaration advising the trio to solve the problems with their Korean label.
They remained to have some performances together as well as even broke documents with their brand-new single. Although followers saw that, backstage, it seemed that the two sides weren’t permitted to interact.
In 2010, Avex announced the development of JYJ, as well as S.M., submitted legal action against them. JYJ then filed one more claim against S.M. After the claim, JYJ encountered a bumpy ride because of S.M.’s efforts at knocking them.
Already, fans are still hoping TVXQ and also JYJ will totally settle everything.
In 2008, the sub-unit Super Junior-M was produced. This group targets Chinese followers as well as consists of 3 China line members: Hangeng, Henry (Canadian-Taiwanese), as well as Zhou Mi. But, however, collaborated with controversy.
Hanging was the first worldwide SM musician. Because of validities, he had not been able to reveal his face on TV at an early stage and also was forced to wear a mask while carrying out. After years of unfair treatment and discrimination, Hangeng took legal action against the firm in 2009. He won the lawsuit at the end of 2010 as well as formally left the team.
The enhancement of two new members likewise triggered hundreds of followers to quietly oppose in front of the SM structure. They even purchased enough shares to hold 0.3% of the company’s stock. The dissatisfaction compelled SM to keep the new members as only part of M and also Super Junior as only 13 participants.
Just recently, at the end of 2016, Henry published on Instagram airing vent concerning his firm. He claimed that it appears he only has his fans now and also even looked for aid from them. It was later removed.
