SM Entertainment Experiences A Backlash From The PublicPosted: February 21, 2011
At the end of their trial against JYJ is SM Entertainment doing itself more harm than good?
After an intense court battle against JYJ, that resulted with the court rulling in favor of JYJ, their former label SM Entertainment is none too happy with the results.
The company brushed the results aside stating “the legal battle between SM and JYJ isn’t finished. The courts’ decision is only on the injunctions and not on the invalidation of the contract between SM and JYJ.”
As SM Entertainment prepares for its next battle though, the public has grown tired of their pursuit against JYJ.
Many netizens are beginning to look at SM Entertainment as a “stalker management company”, and as one netizen points out “SM, like its name (Sadistic and Masochistic) will continue to torture JYJ.”
The court’s decision also has all eyes on the Korean Federation of Pop Culture and Art Industry (KFPCAI) who made sure JYJ was blacklisted from promoting their album “The Beginning“.
Because of court’s decision though KPFPCAI no longer can do so, but they have yet to make an announcement.
The recent court case revealed that despite being told not to SM Entertainment disobeyed the court in trying force JYJ to leave CJES Entertainment.
As movie critic Shim Young-sup points out, “Will SM faithfully carry out the courts’ decision? If SM continues to hold back JYJ and refuse to follow the courts’ order, couldn’t fans file another lawsuit against SM?“
Many believe SM Entertainment has become blinded by greed stating “increasing greed only leads to destruction. We hope SM, one of Korea’s representative management company, will not foolishly continue to grow the public’s mistrust with their myopic vision.“
Do you think its time that SM Entertainment’s policies change against JYJ?
