100630 SME to Hangeng: You’re still under contract with usJuly 1, 2010 at 3:11 pm | Posted in Hankyung, News/Rumors, SM Town, Wonderboys | 12 Comments
SM Entertainment has reminded Hangeng, the Chinese member of boy band Super Junior, that he is still under contract with the agency and that all his activities should have its approval.
Hangeng filed a lawsuit against SME last December in South Korea to terminate his exclusive contract, saying that it was disadvantageous to him.
He left South Korea and is living in his native China.
Since then, Hangeng has been charting his career as a solo singer outside SME.
SME’s action is regarded as a response to many activities that Hangeng has been doing in the past several months including TV appearances.
Recently, Hangeng and Chinese singer Zhou BiChang recorded the official song for the Asian Games that will be held in Guangzhou, China this November. The song has topped 20 music charts in different parts of China.
Hangeng is also set to release his own album.
In an article in a Chinese website, Hangeng talked about his lawsuit.
“In Korea, artists terminating their contracts are very common. If that artist is a solo artist, the termination just needs to go through the necessary procedures to complete, but it is more sensitive if that artist is in a group, as he/she not only needs to face the company, but also the fans and members who make up the group who have been together for many years,” said Hangeng in a translation by sj-world.net, the international forum for Super Junior fans.
Hangeng is leaving up to his lawyer to work on the lawsuit while he is focusing on his career.
In addition to singing, he said he is interested in making movies and his dream is to act with his idol Jackie Chan.
