[Topic] Han Geng of Super Junior's Lawsuit Against SM 
12 21 09 [hangeng, super junior]
default
Han Geng of Super Junior filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment on December 21, 2009.  Sound familiar?  What impact with this have on JJY's case, SM and the idol industry?  We don't know yet, but we're going to keep up with this lawsuit.  And in case you don't know, Hangeng is 1 of the 13 members of Super Junior and he is Chinese.  We won't cover this suit in as much detail as JJY's, but will definitely follow the major points once they are published in reliable news sources, especially as they relate to JJY's case.  Thus we won't really need the Reliability and Who Said What sections.

We do not follow Super Junior too much (though we like them), so if you have important points we need to include in this thread, please let us know.  Major news only, please, and only once the information is confirmed (no rumors). ^_^

December 22, 2009 - Han Geng makes statement with reasons for lawsuit
The nature and various provisions of Han Geng's contract are remarkably similar in nature and severity to TVXQ's.  The duration is the same (13 years, lengthened unilaterally after it was signed; super stiff penalties for breach; "interesting" profit allocations; lack of free will, etc.)  Han Geng also cites health problems that have arisen as a result of a forced lack of rest and general care toward his health.  :(      (This mod will be happy to nurse him back to health.)

Yes, there is information missing from this thread.  There are tons of rumors flying around, some receiving considerable attention.  Unless they turn out to be true, however, we're not really going to address them here.  We're taking things on a case by case basis. :)
