[INFO] 091229 DBSK Ranks 27th on 2009 Pop Culture Leading Power 30

DBSK was in 27th of 2009 pop culture leading power 30. (No activity in Korea in 2009 but still on TOP XD)

Major criteria for the selection includes ▶Cultural and social influence ▶Power to move the public ▶Economic importance and influence in the business of public culture and so on. Even though the activity made throughout this year had a great influence in the selection, we also carefully considered symbolic power, representation, popularity and so on.

The survey was conducted on 64 businessmen, who are working in the related fields of public culture, for a week starting the 9th of December. Method of the survey was for the subject to select 5 comprehensive ‘power-leaders’ that compositely cover all broadcasting, music businesses, singers etc., and to select 2 people representing each category. We applied different weights for their ranks, the ‘comprehensive’ #1 to #5 were each given 5 to 1 points, and each category’s #1 and #2 were recorded as 2 and 1 points each. These points were summed up, and hence the best public culture leaders of 2009 were selected.
*(**) <- last year's ranking, *(-) <- newly arrived

SM to face hefty compensation if Hankyung were to miss Hunan TV's New Year Eve Concert

During Hunan TV New Year Eve Concert last year, Chen Chusheng's silent departure became the biggest storm of 2009 created by an artist. Hunan TV's 2010 New Year Eve Concert in Shenzhen next week may yet again face the "missing gate" embarassment. This concert's heavy-weight guest performer SJ-M member Hankyung is in the mist of terminating his contract with his management company. Recently, after Hunan TV communicated with the management company, the other party expressed that the problem is not big. But the reporter was told that the possibility of Hankyung making the trip is silm.

Hankyung's management company claims no problem
The New Year Eve (Concert) sponsor is also unable to find Hankyung, can only contact the management company. It is revealed that at the moment the answer Hankyung's management company gave is that SJ-M attending should not be a problem. According to this optimistic estimation, the direction group's arrangement for Hankyung and co is: SJ-M takes a plane to Shenzhen, to reach the airport at around 10 in the morning that day, rehearsals at 11am at the venue. The direction group is looking at Li Yuchun and Hankyung to perform together at midnight.

Industry analyzed Hankyung's trip as slim
If Hankyung doesn't come, will Hunan TV New Year Eve Concert accept a "depleted" SJ-M? One of the staff at the direction group expressed that SJ-M has always appear as a group, and leader Hankyung is the core (of the group). "The New Year emphasizes on reunion, if Hankyung is not there, we are not able to accept." As both parties have already signed the performance contract, if SJ-M cannot appear at the last minute, SJ-M's management firm would face a compensation. In accordance with the general practice of breach of contract, the indemnity is double (of the agreed amount). If things turns out so, SJ-M's management company will face a 7-digit payment claim.

Follow-sjm.cn reports:

SJ-M is confirmed to participate in Hunan TV's New Year Eve Concert on December 31st, (they) will not participate in the Happy Valley Event on January 1st (Hankyung absent)


Sina Reports:

SJ-M, led by Hangeng is luckier than Rain (mentioned at the first part of original article). Our reporter understood from Tudou website’s (tudou.com) manager that Tudou used high prices to get the rights for online streaming to broadcast the end of year countdown concert by the 3 main channels, Shen Chuan TV, Jiang Su TV and Dong Fang TV. At the same time, they also invited the highly popular Hu Nan TV to stream their end of year countdown event online. There had been high expectations of SJ-M’s performance on the countdown event. Due to Hangeng’s contract problems with SM entertainment and in order to prevent their image from being overly discussed online, Hunan TV gave up Tudou website’s offer to stream the countdown event online. Hunan TV also limited the exposure of the countdown event on other websites. Hoping that Hangeng can successfully appear at the countdown event, Hunan TV gave up a 6 digit offer for the online streaming rights.

[TRANS] 091229 TVXQ's Chinese Fanclub Takes Legal Action Against SM Ent.

It has been confirmed that Chinese fans are planning to take legal action against SM Entertainment and the Chinese sponsoring company for the cancellation of the Shenzhen 'TVXQ Thrid Asia Tour-MIROTIC' concert that was to be held on November 21st.

A representative of Chinese TVXQ fansite Baidu BAR said in an e-mail interview that, "We were severely hurt by this event," and "We could have understood if the concert had been canceled for reasons beyond anyone's control, but we cannot sit idly by and let these deceptive tricks go," and stated that they are receiving legal counsel for this case.

The representative highlighted the forged note of confirmation from the members to state that they would participate in the concert and said, "This case includes fraud. This is the thing that we find hardest to accept," and "We are beginning to take legal action against SM Entertainment and the Chinese sponsor company by asking for Perpetuation of Evidence and other actions."

They stated, "The Shenzhen concert was set by SM and the Chinese sponsor company without consultation after the three members handed in their provisional disposition request so it was an unfair to the members of TVXQ."

Regarding the forged signatures, the Chinese fans showed their disappointment by saying, "In the end, SM did not give us a proper answer." They also directly criticized SM by saying, "They do no respect their singers, hurt their fans and use media play in their favor. Therefore, we will no longer cry to understand or trust such a company."

They said, "We are fans who support TVXQ and we hope that this cancellation of the concert does not affect the members in a bad way," and "We will not let the company put all the blame on the members of TVXQ." They also showed their unwavering support by saying, "We are Chinese fans who grew with TVXQ for six years and we believe in them." They also stressed that, "We hope that this concert does not put any more stress on the members who are already strained from the legal dispute."

They also said, "We hope that people, like the media, do not get fooled by rumors and partial explanations that switches black and white and make the wrong assumptions. We hope that they judge this event thinking of what is the real problem of this whole situation." They also said, "We hope that the public loves them and keeps a fair and understanding eye on them."

The Chinese fans also said, "We are not strong, and we lack experience but we will unite and let the truth be revealed."
