C-JeS and Avex Settle Dispute, JYJ Looks Toward Japan Activities
C-JeS Entertainment has officially announced that the legal dispute between JYJ and its former Japanese management, Avex, has come to an end.
On February 16, entertainment agency C-Jes uploaded a press release on its official homepage regarding its artist group JYJ. It announced, “C-JeS (JYJ) and Avex have agreed to end all legal disputes that have occurred between the two parties until now. Henceforth, C-JeS (JYJ) and Avex will longer meddle in each other’s activities.
Previously, the Tokyo District Court ruled in favor of JYJ and ordered Avex to compensate the group for interfering with its activities in Japan. Avex immediately appealed the decision, and a related source revealed, “Through the mediation of the Tokyo District Court, both sides decided to settle.
The CEO of C-JeS Entertainment, Baek Chang Joo, expressed his pleasure at having the dispute end and the road to JYJ’s activities in Japan open. Baek Chang Joo stated, “It is most meaningful that as we have agreed with Avex that it will no longer meddle in JYJ’s activities, the group’s activities in Japan has been legally guaranteed. We are happy that JYJ’s long legal dispute has ended and are hopeful that JYJ will be able to meet their Japanese fans more closely and more often.”
