DBSK / TVXQ suspends all group activities

Of course it is bound to happen. Who in his right mind would continue working for the company he is suing?

And so, the official announcement was made on April 3 that DBSK / TVXQ will suspend all activities as a group…indefinitely.

Better times: The TVXQ / DBSK boys (l-r) Xiah Junsu, Micky Yoochun,
Hero Jaejoong, Max Changmin & U-Know Yunho

Three of its members, namely Micky Yoochun, Hero Jaejoong and Xiah Junsu filed a lawsuit against their agency SM Entertainment (SME) on July 31 last year. They claimed that SME has not treated them right (especially when they have been bringing in the moolah, heh heh) and wants to terminate the company’s exclusive rights over them.

We will miss the boys as TVXQ and I’m glad I went for their O – The 2nd Asia Tour Concert in Malaysia in 2007. Little did I know that that would be my one and only time seeing the quintet as DBSK / TVXQ.

However, the good news is, the boys will continue with individual projects. If you’re in Malaysia, U-Know Yunho’s soccer drama No Limit starts airing today on 8TV (4pm). It will subsequently air over the weekend. I’m not watching it because the drama is dubbed in Mandarin – bleh.

Also, Xiah Junsu will be appearing at his twin brother Zuno’s showcase in Singapore on May 1. Xiah will reportedly perform a song at the showcase and also hold an interview.

All the best guys! I'm sure fans will always keep the faith.

This is sad indeed. But it sounds like the end of TVXQ if they don't settle the matter with SM Entertainment. Looks like the boys have to "grow up" and go their separate ways.

sad news... I hope they dont stop here... they still have a long way ahead of them... they can always start again =)

i too don't like it when 8tv dubs the foreign shows in mandarin... makes it sound so fake and lack of emotions... very monotonous... hehe...

Lynn, not only is it monotonous, the voices all sound like from other dubbed shows. So...not nice.

this totally breaks my heart! TVXQ is not just another group to me but they were the one who brought me to k-pop's world in sept08! before that, all i know about korean entertainment was drama & actors...

coz of them i started to listen to k-pop's songs and they were the very 1st korean singer i ever love & how was Mirotic was my very 1st korean album i ever bought...

and i think i'm not wrong when i said, tvxq is not just an odinary singer but they are more than that! to me, they are the most talented that i ever know....

wish, to see all 5 of them on stage again.... sob! sob!

Hmmmmm. With all of the experience that SME has with artists, I bet they have a boxcar full of lawyers who wrote DBSK/TVXQ's contract. I would expect that contract to go on for decades, as far as them ever getting together again.
We will never know who is right. Were the "boys" just paying too much attention to their PR? Was SME being an unreasonable bully? We will never know. But if you're a fan of their, I would horde everything I could get my hands on of theirs.
