JYJ sues AvexPosted: April 30, 2011
This new lawsuit has nothing to do with SM Entertainment.
[The Backstory] JYJ scheduled a charity concert in Japan. Their former entertainment agency in Japan, Avex, pressured the group to cancel their show. Why? According to Avex, the band has no rights to promote their concerts/music after the company ended their contract with them in September of 2010. Following the contract ending, JYJ is not legally allowed to perform in the country without Avex‘s approval.
What does the band think about all this? They want to continue with their show despite the current opposition. JYJ‘s people, CJes Entertainment, has helped the group file a lawsuit in Tokyo District Court against their former company, so that the show can go on.
JYJ wants to continue to be apart of their Japanese fans lives and they hope to win their case so they can reach out to all of their Cassies in Asia.
JYJ is one tough band. When they feel they have been wronged, they fight back! I don’t know the private relationship between the two entities.So, it would be wrong for me to pass judgement on either side because of this missing information. However, I hope justice prevails and the band can continue to promote their music worldwide.
Can you decide? Whose side are you on, JYJ or Avex?
