Interview Transcript with Kim Jinwook, Hankyung’s lawyer on his request to terminate his contract 2009.12.21

Super Junior’s Chinese Member Hankyung has filed a litigation at the Seoul District Court on the 21st at 1pm about the effect of his exclusive contract.

Reporters are currently on a phone interview with Hankyung’s (who is in China) lawyer, Kim Jinwook. Lawyer Kim said, indeed he has filed a litigation about terminating the contract with SM, but to whether Hankyung will continue Super Junior’s activities, it has been undecided.

  • -It has been heard 2 types of litigation were filed today.
    “It is confirmed that 2 litigations have been filed against the exclusive contract to not be valid and to terminate the contract. Simply put, the former says to terminate the exclusive contract and the latter is saying that until the exclusive contract is terminated, and until legal effect of the termination has taken place, (he) will be able to act in accordance of temporary activities at (his) own will.”
  • -When did Hankyung prepare for this litigation?
    “This is hard to answer. When the statement is released, it will be answered.”
  • -The main point of this litigation is similar to Dong Bang Shin Ki 3 member’s exclusive contract?
    “Majority speaking, it is almost similar. Hankyung’s contract is valid for 13 years, there are indeed many unfair clauses, so (he) decided to file the litigation.”
  • -Has he been contacting the 3 members of DBSK?
    “I am not very sure. Hankyung will state his own stand as soon as possible.”
  • -Has the first date of the trial been decided?
    “At the moment, not yet. The full situation has been sorted out properly. DBSK’s sequestration contract has been terminated, and the process of applying it to finishing the statement, takes about 2 months. Hankyung does not want to spend such a long time. DBSK’s situation has mediation in between, and has undergone trial a few times, so the time spent has been pretty long, we hope that Hankyung’s litigation will be solved as soon as possible.”
  • -Did Hankyung think of continuing activities as part of Super Junior or will he leave the group?”
    “That I am not too sure. As for Super Junior’s activities, up till now, there has been no decision made.”
  • -It has been heard that (he) plans to have solo activities in China?
    “I have not heard of that.”

Comment by wulan

It almost seems like Super Junior is slowly falling apart… first Kibum, then Kangin, and now Hankyung?
Who will be Heechul’s prince?
I really hope that SME and Hankyung can figure this out… gawd, I’m dying on the inside.

when dbsk went through the dispute i was so relieved and happy that super junior is not going thru any of that because suju is my one and only bu tnow I’M GOIN INSANE.

suju please be strong and stay together!!

Comment by xiaobear0809

Because of SJ, I become stronger…
Because of SJ, I become braver…
Because of SJ, I become ambitious…
Because of SJ, I feel like moving foward…
Because of SJ, I become happier…

SJ (슈퍼주니아), have change 45% of myself…
I hope SJ can stay as that forever. I dont know whether it is okay for me to request that they will reamain like those SJ that I knew since they dibute. Maybe there’s certain thing that we cant persuade.

However…it is my wish that they will be better soon…

Comment by V.I.P

it’s still not sure yet if hankyung is really out in superjunior..if the case was clarified and hankyung cleared all of it for elf…please continue loving our beloved hankyung…and never say he’s not a superjunior member anymore..because w/o him…there’s no super junior..suju hwaiting!

Comment by

han kyung oppa, don’t worry we will wait for you! hwaiting

Comment by iqa

I am sure han kyung has thought it through, weighing all the possibilities and consequences. For him to give such an ultimatum, it must be hurting in his heart more then any of us could understand. Isn’t his overall well-being are of the main concern of fans out there and not if he stays or not?

Comment by Tori

Hankyung 형제 싸움 싸우기!!! AJA AJA!! 사랑!

Comment by kazang

Wish for your comeback. Good luck hangeng. Keep a smile on your face and a lways remember suju. You are still a family.
