Park Chan Chong Fully Agrees and Supports TVXQ’s Fanclub

TVXQ’s fanclub had exposed SM Entertainment’s inhuman contract with TVXQ through advertisements on the newspaper. Regarding this, Mr. Park Chan Chong (former governor) stated that he “fully supports and agrees” with them.

Mr. Park expressed, “Our government has the responsibility to arrest those who make mistakes. This should be settled through the rule of law, to prove a democratic society.”

Last 4th of August, Mr. Park had commented on the lawsuit issue between TVXQ and SM Entertainment, “On the basics of slave contracts, it had violated ‘Defraud’ (Article 348 of the Constitution) and ‘Inappropriate income’ (Article 349 of the Constitution).”

“TVXQ’s fanclub focused on the ‘slave contract’ in the lawsuit, to submit the petition to the Seoul Central Court.

On top of that, they also raised funds and collected signatures. To date, over 190k of signatures have been collected, of which 70k came from the online petition and 120k from the offline petition.”

Civil servants and governors stated that the government should supervise this incident. Last year, they had stopped all the awful and offensive comments by the “Choi Jin-sil Law.” Now, it’s time to stop these inhuman acts from agency companies by the “TVXQ Law.”

At the moment, TVXQ cannot have events in Korea, but they are going to hold a concert in China, which upset the fans, especially with the cancellation of the concert that was scheduled on the 9th of August with unacceptable reason. Fans had submitted a request of compensation to the Korean Consumer Agency, for SM Entertainment to compensate 10% of the cost of sold tickets.

However, it’s the first time that concert was cancelled due to a lawsuit issue, therefore, the Korea Consumer Agency has to make a decision with caution.

Mr. Park expressed that “Request for compensation is possible” and this, by any chance, might result in (SM Entertainment who violates the law) into difficulties. Lastly, he said, “I hope that TVXQ can hold their concerts in Korea in the near future, and meet their fans.”

T/N: Mr. Park Chan Chong is a lawyer and former governor of South Korea.

On September 9th, the Korean Entertainment Producers Association released a document to all attendees of the concert and to the general public.

Here’s what it said:

1. Thank you for showing much interest towards 2009 DREAM Concert.
2. Korean Entertainment Producers Association will become organizer of 2009 DREAM Concert.
As was reported in Japan, TVXQ lawsuit has already been gathering a lot of attention.
About this unforeseen incident, Korean Entertainment Producers Association and SM Entertainment has been having discussions in regard to former performers matter, and currently meet in the decision that under present condition, starring TVXQ in the concert is very difficult, therefore for everyone who is looking forward to TVXQ performance, we’re really sorry and sincerely apologize.

Hottests continue to boycott 2PM in Thailand

After 2PM‘s Jaebeom‘s departure from the group, 2PM‘s fans, Hottests, have declared they will be boycotting 2PM until Jaebeom is back and the fans have stayed true to their word.

Through a travel agency in Thailand, an event was to be held for a total of 100 fans to sign up and get a chance to go on a 5 day trip to Bangkok with
2PM‘s Nichkhun. But as the Hottests have proclaimed that “”We all reject a 2PMwithout Jaebeom“, one by one the Hottests have been canceling their opportunity to meet the star and are backing out on the event.

A representative stated, “We had around 90 participants in the event but now we have about 30 left.” But it seems this event will still be taking place despite the small number of participants.
