Back in April, SM Entertainment filed a lawsuit against TVXQ / DBSK / Tohoshinki members Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun and Xiah Junsu (Jaechunsu). The first trial / hearing for this will be held on May 7th at the Seoul District Courts. The members (defendants) won't be present as the presence of both defendant and plaintiff isn't required in civil case hearings. In this lawsuit, SM Entertainment basically asked the court to: 1. Revoke their disposition where they allowed the three members to act freely while the case is under way, 2. Confirm that the contract between SM and the three members is valid, and 3. Make the three members pay 2.2 Billion₩ (around $2,000,000) in damages incurred for the cancellation of the Shenzhen concert. An SM Entertainment representative stated, "After the trio filed their injunction we did everything to continue TVXQ as a group so we tried to avoid the lawsuit. However, with the recent suspension of TVXQ's activities in Japan and the uncertainty of TVXQ's future and their activities, we've decided to pursue this course of action."
