The arbitration regarding the contract was held at the Seoul Central District Court on the 18th at 5:00PM. Originally, the final judgment was to be held on the 13th, but the justice department advised that another arbitration be held.
In order to carry out a smooth agreement, the justice department required the representatives of both JYJ and S.M.Entertainment to be present at the court, but even after about one hour of attempting to mediate both sides, the two sides still strongly expressed their individual statements and were unable to bring a conclusion.
SM Entertainment (aka SM) and group JYJ’s final judgement was delayed again.
SM and JYJ’s judgment was supposed to be finalized on the 13th at 10AM at court. But, there was a decision that both sides’ opinions should be settled, which is why the judgment was delayed again. Both the representative of SM and JYJ filed their consultation letter on the 11th. The delay was decided on the 12th.
SM and JYJ’s legal fight was supposed to end on the 19th of July. At that time, SM requested an arbitration, which delayed the date to August 10th. However, a firm agreement was not established from both sides.
Since May, there were 6 turns to try to settle an agreement, but the difference between the two sides was so definite that there was no chance of narrowing it down. It has already been more than 3 years since the legal dispute first began.
