[SJ] HANKYUNG’S REQUEST FOR TERMINATION OF CONTRACT

↘ There are articles surfacing in the Chinese and Korean news stating that Han Geng signed papers to request for his contract with SM to be terminated. Another source states it was his lawyer (Kim Jinwook) who signed the papers.

↘ All Korean news articles cite China as the source of the news. China is also where all Han Geng’s scandals originated from.

↘ SM Entertainment stated that they’re in the middle of determining the facts, which means that nothing has been confirmed so far. Another news article said they hadn’t heard of this.

↘ SM Entertainment said “Han Geng is in China right now” and “Because nothing’s been formally confirmed, we don’t know anything about it yet.”

↘Hankyung’s termination request document has been revealed and also his lawyer Kim Jinwook has been interviewed so indeed this is not a rumour. In this interview, his lawyer said he doesnt know about Hankyung’s decision of whether continuing activities with Super Junior or not and he said Hankyung’s official statement about this case is planned to be out soon

↘ Hankyung’s lawyer said the reason Hankyung brings in this lawsuit against SM is because his 13-year contract is too long and there are many unfair clauses in the contract.

↘ SM Entertainment released their statement and said they’re trying to settle this amiably with Han Geng over the phone.

Translation of the phone interview with Hankyung’s lawyer Kim Jinwook.

Super Junior’s Chinese Member Hankyung has filed a litigation at the Seoul District Court on the 21st at 1pm about the effect of his exclusive contract.

Reporters are currently on a phone interview with Hankyung’s (who is in China) lawyer, Kim Jinwook. Lawyer Kim said, indeed he has filed a litigation about terminating the contract with SM, but to whether Hankyung will continue Super Junior’s activities, it has been undecided.

[*] -It has been heard 2 types of litigation were filed today.
“It is confirmed that 2 litigations have been filed against the exclusive contract to not be valid and to terminate the contract. Simply put, the former says to terminate the exclusive contract and the latter is saying that until the exclusive contract is terminated, and until legal effect of the termination has taken place, (he) will be able to act in accordance of temporary activities at (his) own will.”

[*]-When did Hankyung prepare for this litigation?
“This is hard to answer. When the statement is released, it will be answered.”

[*]-The main point of this litigation is similar to Dong Bang Shin Ki 3 member’s exclusive contract?
“Majority speaking, it is almost similar. Hankyung’s contract is valid for 13 years, there are indeed many unfair clauses, so (he) decided to file the litigation.”

[*]-Has he been contacting the 3 members of DBSK?
“I am not very sure. Hankyung will state his own stand as soon as possible.”

[*]-Has the first date of the trial been decided?
“At the moment, not yet. The full situation has been sorted out properly. DBSK’s sequestration contract has been terminated, and the process of applying it to finishing the statement, takes about 2 months. Hankyung does not want to spend such a long time. DBSK’s situation has mediation in between, and has undergone trial a few times, so the time spent has been pretty long, we hope that Hankyung’s litigation will be solved as soon as possible.”

[*]-Did Hankyung think of continuing activities as part of Super Junior or will he leave the group?”
“That I am not too sure. As for Super Junior’s activities, up till now, there has been no decision made.”

[*]-It has been heard that (he) plans to have solo activities in China?
“I have not heard of that.”

Translation of a piece of news regarding SJ-M’s manager Kim Min Wook.

SJ-M’s Manager: News of Han Geng’s contract termination was released by fans, in the midst of coordinating with the company.”

December 21, reports have emerged that Chinese celebrity Han Geng has officially filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment with the Seoul District Court, asking for a termination of contract. Once this news was released, the level of this ‘explosion’ is no less than that of Dong Bang Shin Ki’s case previously. Ent.163.com has contacted SJ-M’s manager Kim Min Wook (?) to respond to Han Geng’s opting out. Kim Min Wook said he himself was not sure if Han Geng initiated the termination of contract, and that he saw the news from the internet, “All news were said by fans, the company does not know (anything).”

Kim Min Wook added, he saw that a lot of Super Junior related news surfaced online today, but in regard to whether Han Geng, as per what the rumours have stated, has filed the lawsuit with the Seoul District Court against SM Entertainment’s <Exclusive Contract> to be terminated, he isn’t very sure himself, and is currently reaffirming this with the company, Kim Min Wook said, “All the news are what fans said.”

As to whether it is a worry, as being Super Junior’s only foreign Chinese artiste, if Han Geng’s opting out will affect Super Junior’s development in China, Kim Min Wook repeated again, “If there is really something, we will discuss it well with Han Geng and hope that Super Junior’s future development will not be affected.” Once the news of Han Geng terminating the contract spread, Ent.163.com surveyed fans. 80% of the fans think that it is SM’s doing of cooking up publicity for Super Junior’s Asia tour next year. To why they say it’s a form of cooking up publicity, Kim Min Wook declined to respond but only repeated “Thank You” non-stop and hurriedly hung up the phone.
