The agency of JYJ, an idol group whose members are from TVXQ, has released an official statement on the lawsuit against them and stated, “We are baffled and on a false charge.”
Through a phone conversation with Newsen, a representative of C-JeS Entertainment stated on the 5th, “We read the article that stated that there was a lawsuit filed against us, and we’re extremely baffled by it. In other words, this whole thing is ludicrous. The charges have nothing to do with us, and we’ve never received any investments or documents for the album’s production costs.“
The representative added, “We are currently consulting the case with our lawyer but as no documents on the issue were passed between the two sides, we have not yet decided how to tackle the situation.”
According to the Seoul District Courts, the production company Asia Bridge Contents signed an album production contract with the popular composer Mr. K last February and paid him one billion Won in advance across four payments from March till April. But Asia Bridge Contents has filed the lawsuit against JYJ’s agency in order to retrieve their one billion Won in advance payment.
To this JYJ’s representative emphasized, “This has nothing to do with us but they’re demanding that we pay them back for the advance payment. This is ludicrous. We never received any advance payment from Asia Bridge Contents and this lawsuit should be against the composer Mr. K.”
