Kris and Luhan's mediation with SM Entertainment is postponed; will this legal battle ever end?

It looks like Kris, Luhan, and SM Entertainment'slegal stalemate will be extended.On February 26, it was announced that Kris and Luhan's mediation with SM Entertainment that was originally scheduled for February 27 is now postponed to March 27.

The mediation was set to be held in the Seoul Central District Court. It would be Kris's fifth and Luhan's fourth mediation, or formal attempt, to reach a compromise with SM. During their last mediation on February 6, the court was unable to make the two sides come to any sort of agreement.

The postponement could possibly be due to SM's lawsuit, which SM filed earlier this month against Kris and Luhan for promoting independently in China while still under their contract. SM has also filed an additional lawsuit against Luhan and affiliated move production companies for similar reasons. Kris and Luhan's side has since responded that SM was attempting to paint the two celebrities in a bad light and blocking their activities, similar to how they blocked JYJ from broadcast years ago. Kris and Luhan's side also questioned SM's sincerity in wishing to negotiate via court-regulated mediations.

Kris and Luhan have been in a lawsuit against SM to nullify their contracts ever since May and October respectively. At this rate, who knows how and when this legal battle will end.
