The group JYJ (Jaejoong Kim, Yuchun Park, Junsu Kim) is due to resume its activities in Japan in 4 years, the first step at Tokyo Dome.

C-JeS Entertainment (a.k.a C-JeS) announced JYJ’s concert in Tokyo Dome with a teaser poster on its official website. No further details about schedules are announced accept that it’d be 3-day concert. The announcement only says official details will be available on Mar 1.

 “This concert has a huge meaning as it’s been 4 years since JYJ met fans in Tokyo Dome. We’ll be able to inform more details once we have settled with Japanese partner”, explained a staff at C-JeS.

Before this, Tokyo District Court ruled against AVEX who insist on JYJ’s exclusive management right. It also ordered AVEX to pay 660 million Yen (approx 7.8 billion Won) to JYJ’s management, C-JeS for compensation for damage.

Tokyo District Court also acknowledged that AVEX’s libel to the CEO of C-JeS and ordered it to pay compensation to him (Mr. Baek) as well. AVEX is known to appealed against the ruling, but practically JYJ has free to resume its activities.

JYJ had the court’s approval of the injunction to terminate exclusive contract against SM Entertainment in November 2009 and made an exclusive contract with AVEX through C-JeS in 2010. However, the both sides had conflict about the group’s range of activities and AVEX suspended JYJ’s activities in Japan in September 2010. C-JeS noticed AVEX for its cancellation of exclusive contract, but AVEX insisted that it still had exclusive right on the group and interfered in the group’s activities in Japan such as concerts.

After the ruling, C-JeS announced that the ruling would make JYJ have activities in Japan and they were really grateful about the fact that Japanese court acknowledged AVEX’s interference and banned it.

As JYJ finished the lawsuit with its former management, SM Entertainment in 3 years and 4 months in November 2011 and won the lawsuit against AVEX, the group finished all legal dispute related.
