A source from SM Entertainment said, “We welcome the department of justice’s wise and encouraging ruling. We will continue to make our way with active business in the global market.”
The source added, “We will do our best to establish a culture of protecting loyalty and abiding by contracts for the advancement of Asia’s entertainment industry.”
