[News] Fair Trade Commission Orders SM Ent. to Stop Interfering With JYJ′s Promotions

The Fair Trade Commission (FTC) ordered SM Entertainment to let up on its pressure on JYJ.

The FTC stated on July 24, “We told SM and the Korea Pop Culture and Arts Industry Coalition to stop interfering with others′ business activities, and ordered them to notify related institutes, such as broadcasting companies, of this fact.”

According to an investigation by the FTC, SM and the Coalition had sent an official notice in October 2010, after the JYJ members left TVXQ (DBSK), to 26 broadcasting companies and album distributors, asking them to refrain from casting JYJ or from distributing their music.

The FTC judged that considering the influence of SM and the Coalition in the industry, this notice would have pressured those who received it, and interfered with JYJ′s promotions as a singer.

On this, JYJ′s agency C-JeS Entertainment commented, “We thank the FTC for its decision. This fight started in 2009 and had since made us feel like we′ve been walking a desert with no end, but today′s announcement made us feel that things were becoming better, and we felt we had been supported.”

“We hope this notice will help [us] promote fairly before the public, and also open new doors for our juniors,” it finished.

SM Entertainment, on the other hand, said about the decision, “We′re sorry such a decision was made because we′ve never interfered [with JYJ′s promotions]. SM is considering taking legal measures on the decision.”

Park Yoo Chun, Kim Junsu and Kim Jae Joong left SM and its former group TVXQ after lodging a lawsuit against the agency. The three have been performing as JYJ.

[News] Fair Trade Commission issues a sanction against SM Entertainment and KFPCAI for interfering with JYJ’s activities

Like most Kpop fans know, for a while now, JYJ has not been able to promote freely in Korea due to their past issues with SM Entertainment. Broadcast stations and music distributors never offered a complete explanation as to why this is the case, but fans suspected all along that SM Entertainment was applying backdoor pressure.

The Fair Trade Commission or the FTC has been looking into the issue and has finally confirmed that the parties responsible for JYJ’s lack of broadcast activities are SM Entertainment and ’Korean Federation of Pop Culture and Art Industry (KFPCAI)’.

Having confirmed the two’s role in blocking JYJ’s activities, the FTC issued a sanction today (July 24th KST) ordering SM Entertainment as well as KFPCAI to stop interfering with the group’s activities.

According to the FTC, SM and KFPCAI issued out a statement asking broadcast and music insiders to restrict JYJ’s broadcast activities and appearances during the release of JYJ’s first album in 2010.

A FTC rep commented, “Despite JYJ’s high album sales, their activities as a singer were restricted in Korea, and had to promote through areas where SM’s influence was less like dramas, musicals, and advertisements.”

SM also asked Warner Music Korea, the distributor of JYJ’s 1st album in 2010, to stop the distribution of the group’s album.

KFPCAI also helped SM by issuing out statements to Warner Music Korea, as well as 3 major broadcast stations and 6 music and cable stations, and 11 album retailers and 5 online music service sites, requesting that they restrict JYJ’s broadcast appearances and music distribution.

In these statements, KFPCAI only included SM’s side of the story and warned that the broadcast stations and music sites would be becoming implicated in the legal problems of JYJ and also pushing Hallyu and pop culture a step back, if they did not restrict JYJ’s activities.
FTC commented, “SM, one of the big 3 agencies, and KFPCAI, which is composed of various organizations involved in the entertainment industry, applied incredible pressure on companies and as a result, JYJ experienced cancellations of music and variety programs, change in music ranking, and cancellations of documentaries and theater screenings.”

The FTC has found SM and KFPCAI in violation of several policies and has ordered a sanction as well as corrective measures so that JYJ’s activities will not be further restricted due to their past legal issues with SM Entertainment.

As part of the corrective measure, the KFPCAI will have to issue a statement to the 12 organizations and companies that make up the KFPCAI as well as 26 companies, including broadcast stations and music distribution sites, regarding the sanction they have been issued by the FTC.

A FTC rep commented, “This is a case in which we prohibited large-scale agencies from using their influence to pressure businesses to interfere in the promotional activities of celebrities whom they are in a dispute with.”

With this sanction in place, hopefully we will soon see JYJ freely promote on various music and variety programs!

[TRANS] SM Entertainment and the KPCAIC caught red-handed in prohibiting JYJ’s activities

On July 24th, the Fair Trade Commission (hereafter FTC) revealed that they have ordered SM Entertainment and the Korea Pop Culture and Arts Industry Coalition (hereafter KPCAIC), who have been obstructing JYJ’s broadcast activities, to cease their obstructive actions.

The FTC found that SM and the KPCAIC have worked together to request business’ in the industry to prohibit JYJ’s appearances on broadcast programming and musical distribution after JYJ, who were active as members of TVXQ, formed in October, 2010.

**The KPCAIC and SM collaborated in November, 2010, to send documents requesting that JYJ be prohibited from appearing on public broadcast and engaging in music distribution. Including the music distribution company Warner Music Korea, the documents were sent to 9 broadcast stations, 11 music distributions, and 5 online music service companies, making that 26 companies in total.**

The documents stated that JYJ “signed with another company (ie: having a double contract)” and other unconfirmed speculations that SM unilaterally relayed. SM one-sidedly warned in the documents that having JYJ appear on their broadcasts and helping JYJ distribute their music can bring about legal issues.

JYJ sold 300,000 copies of their first album and achieved great success, but after the KPCAIC sent the aforementioned documents, JYJ faced immense obstacles promoting as singers domestically, not being able to appear on music and variety programming and left out on music rankings for music shows.

Finding that SM and the KPCAIC obstructed the activities of JYJ, the FTC said that they have broken fair trade legislations and ordered SM and the KPCAIC to cease their actions.

The KPCAIC was ordered to relay this order to the 26 companies they pressured to prohibit JYJ as well as the 12 companies that comprise of the KPCAIC.

In July of 2009, JYJ’s three members, who were active as members of TVXQ, stated that their contract was unfair and requested to void the contract with SM Entertainment, commencing a long legal battle.

After numerous legal proceedings, the lawsuit ended with mediation being accepted by both sides in November, 2012.

A representative from the FTC stated, “The unfair agreement and actions of the entertainment companies proved to be a social problem, but regardless personal opinions of artists and demands of the public, entertainment companies have been dictatorial about management system. ” and “We anticipate that the happenings of this event will serve as a warning to similar unfair practices that may appear in the future.”

[TRANS] Statement from CJES with regards to the FTC announcement

“Through this investigation, it has been clearly revealed that SM Entertainment broke fair trade laws and used their monopolistic, dominant position to pressure those who are at a disadvantage multiple times. We believe the orders of Fair Trade Commission appear to raise the alarm to those despotic companies which go against the current governments Creative Economy Policy.

Despite releasing albums, JYJ is still facing the disadvantage of not being able to appear on public programs. However, with the support of today’s policies and systems, we think that JYJ can stand on a fair stage with their future activities.”

Statement from JYJ

“We thank the FTC for their decision. This fight began in 2009 and since then, we felt that we’ve been walking on a path with no end. However, with the announcement from the FTC, we feel a bit liberated and that we received much support. We hope that through this order from the FTC, all entertainers will be able to stand on fair and equal stages and that a road will be opened for our juniors in the future.

Although our path is still a long, dark tunnel, we saw a flash of light in that darkness. We will constantly work towards that light and will work hard every moment to repay everyone with great activities.”

ถึงแม้การฟ้องร้องที่เริ่มต้นตั้งแต่ เดือนกรกฎา่คม 2009 จบลงด้วยการยอมรับข้อยุติร่วมกันทั้งสองฝ่ายในเดือนพฤศจิกายน 2012 แล้วก็ตาม แต่ยังมีการกระทำที่ไม่เป็นไปตามข้อตกลง ซึ่งทางคณะกรรมาธิการการค้ายุติธรรมหรือ FTC มีการสอบสวน และพบว่า ทางบริษัท SM Entertainment รวมทั้งพันธมิตรคือ KPCAIC (เป็นองค์กรที่เกี่ยวกับความร่วมมือทางวัฒนธรรมจากการร่วมมือกันของบริษัทต้นสังกัดและค่ายเพลงในเกาหลี) ยังฝ่าฝืนข้อตกลง ด้วยการรบกวนการทำกิจกรรมในฐานะศิลปินของ JYJ โดยการส่งเอกสารและจดหมายเตือนไปยัง บริษัทผู้ผลิต ผู้จัดจำหน่าย สถานีวิทยุและโทรทัศน์ และรายการต่าง ๆ ที่เกี่ยวข้อง ไม่ให้ทำกิจกรรมที่เกี่ยวข้องกับ JYJ ใด ๆ มิเช่นนั้นจะต้องถูกดำเนินคดีตามกฎหมาย รวมทั้งหมดถึง 26 แห่ง ถึงแม้จะมีการแสดงเอกสารหลักฐาน แต่ทางผู้่ถูกกล่าวหาทั้งสองต่างไม่ยอมรับในคำตัดสินและจะดำเนินการร้องเรียนต่อไป

ถึงแม้จะมีหลักฐาน ก็ยังไม่ยอมรับ แล้วที่ไม่มีหลักฐานจะยังซ่อนอยู่ใต้ภูเขาน้ำแข็งอีกเท่าไหร่ ก็ไม่อาจรู้ได้

นี่คือความเป็นจริงในวงการบันเทิงเกาหลี ซึ่งเป็นสิ่งที่ JYJ ยังต้องเผชิญและก้าวต่อไปให้ได้ด้วยความเข้มแข็ง

ช่วยกันเป็นกำลังใจให้น้องทั้งสามก็แล้วกันนะคะ
