Not Just Hangeng; 6 Members Of Super Junior File For Lawsuit Against SM??!

December 24, 2009 at 10:57 am | Posted in Donghae, Eunhyuk, Kangin, Leeteuk, News/Rumors, Wonderboys, Yesung | 63 Comments

[Sina Entertainment News] The day before, Hangeng, the only Chinese member of Asia’s super popular group, Super Junior, filed for a termination of his “exclusive contract” with SM Entertainment. According to the latest news from Korea, Hangeng is not the only one who filed the lawsuit. Other Super Junior members have also filed a similar lawsuit, and they include: Lee Teuk, Yesung, Kangin, Eun Hyuk and Donghae. The only reason why news about Hangeng was exposed first, is because of his nationality.

According to the lawsuit, Hangeng has not had any rest in 2 years, causing him to suffer from fatigue, which also resulted in chronic gastritis, illnesses related to his kidney, lumbar disc herniation, as well as a visible decrease in body strength. However, SM Entertainment rejected Hangeng’s requests for rest, and continued to schedule activities for him, which caused Hangeng to suffer a lot of pain.

According to the contents of the lawsuit, since the time of his debut, Hangeng didn’t even have one day of rest per week. For 2 years, Hangeng has continuously done his overseas schedules as well, and had no choice but to continue with his schedules without any rest. In his contract with SM, there are clauses stating that he has to pay the company monetary damages should he be unable to fulfill the schedules arranged for him. Thus, even when he was in poor health, he had no choice but to follow through with his schedules.

Once the news broke out, many fans have expressed the wish for SM and the members to be able to make peace, and make changes to their contracts, as well as expressed hope that Super Junior will not face the threat of disbanding.

    • if i have cyworld i would comment on oppas cyworlds and asking them if it is true or even ask them to stick together, but i DONT !!!!!!
      my heart is broken and i cannot breath….
      EUNHAE are the most ones that kills me thinking of not seeing them anymore !!!!!

  12. !!!!!!! @_@

  13. awtz…

    why SME is like that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dont be so greedy for the money!!!!

    Super Junior is a human..not a robot,,,
    they need rest…grrrr…

  14. ………!!!

  15. only sm is like this
    i dont see any other entertainment companies have artists filing a lawsuit
    sm should let them rest, they are human too !

  16. It’s not only the members of SJ but also, DBSK members filed lawsuit before them because there are conflicts with the contract as well. If they take a day off then they have to compensate it to the time onto their contract. So say they took a year off, their contract is for 13 years I recall, they’d have to make up that year so it’d be 14 years instead. And if they couldn’t contact them through their phone or anything, they’d make them pay a compensation for disobedience. The contract also stated that if they breached the contract they’d have to pay them like 3x or something the amount they spent on them, making it hard for them to go to a new Entertainment Company. They only got like 2% – 13% of the pay from their work plus they divide it amongst them. It’s a total rip off, they have human rights and all. I hope they do not disband, but I hope their contracts get changed and become more fair and reasonable. Han Kyung signed his contract when he was around 17, and he didn’t know much of what the contract actually meant. So they were basically taking advantage of him, and everyone else under that contract.

    SuJu && DBSK hwaiting!

  17. psssshhhhaaa!!! stupid smtown… it’s all their fault. they should really change their ways. >.<
    maybe they can just switch companies…just like….fly to the sky (is that the name? i don't exactly remem….) they debuted with smtown, but switched companies after not wanting to act all cutesy in the group mvs and such…. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    we'll just have to hope for the best
    SUJU FIGHTING!!!!!

  18. Just only SAD !!
    HOPE THAT ISN’T TRUE !! =[

  19. no!… please no!! :`(

    what does this mean? suju will beak up? no!!!

    suju hwaiting!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    keep the faith! aja! :))

    Super Junior 13elieve!!!

  20. sm should act like filing lawsuit to their stars!!! the stars make them rich and known so they must respect suju!!!

  21. aren’t those six are like….~the back bone of the group?
    i mean..yes every member is important n have their role but..see :
    eeteuk – leader
    eunhyuk – dance machine & main rapper
    donghae – dancer (s gud s hyuk jae)& rapper
    yesung – angelic voice (along with RW & KH)
    kangin – Joker

    but no!!! seriously no!don’t disband!please!chebal!!!!

    ELF..~STICK TOGETHER~

    Does SME thinks they are vending machine having them smile dance and in tons of show NON STOP!i can see that they are not smiling & laughing sincere enough.

  22. thing in EHB is happening now…i cant imagine the super junior with 6 people left,…

  23. What ….????

    Donghae n Hyukie ikut????

    Wa….. suju jgn pecah donk… please…
    ELF bs banjir nangis darah kalo bneran

  24. Wait for OPPA say.

    We’ll stand by OPPA.

    What will be…We belong together.

    I heard that now SM’s CEO is Kim Yeongmin.

  25. WHAT?????????????????????????/
    pliz stay together.. can’t they just leave outta SME and being with all 13 under any other company????

  26. What will be the consequenze of this filed paper?Does it mean that Suju will brake up?Or they just brake with Sm and they will stay together?Please answer it!!

  27. It sad when a group of artist had done so much and gave so much when the lable company can think of is money! They are human just the everyone who work. There is a time for sleep and rest. I’ll give Super Junior an advice, since the company had no rspesct to their own artist, they should just leave like shinwa did! Shinwa didn’t seperat from each other but they move together as a group to different lable company. To Super Junior, each of you are talented that makes your group shine! If one member is leaving then leave as a group to different company. With your boy band group there are endless opporunity to do in the future!

    • it’s not that easy to leave the company though. sm has very strict rules about staying in the company. the only reason why they could is because they had so many fans (more than suju), and that the violations from sm were worse. shinhwa’s case had some accusations that they were beaten for not performing good enough. plus, shinhwa was lucky since they got to keep their band name. in other cases, a group would have to change their name and possible even their stage name.

  28. actually what hppen wif sm ent? many prob their make. haizzhh.

  29. soo???
    d0es that mean suju is breaking d0wn???
    ahh whatever. i dun care anymore.
    dis is juz frustrating

  30. this is a kinda late comment but.. too bad.

    WAH LAU. SM ENTERTAINMENT SUCKS (other than creating awesome groups such as โ™ฅSUPER JUNIORโ™ฅ, DongBangShinKiโ™ฅ and SHINeeโ™ฅ.) GIVING SUJU STUPID UNREASONABLE CONTRACTS AND ALSO THEY DONT WANT TO LET SuJu or any groups under them TO COME TO SINGAPORE CAUSE THEY THINK SINGAPORE IS A NON-PROFITABLE COUNTRY… WTH. SM ENTERTAINMENT, SUCK ON THIS _|_ . SUPER JUNIOR ALL THE WAY ~~ if SM Entertainment doesnt budge, SUPER JUNIOR, JUST CHANGE COMPANY. GO TO SBS ENTERTAINMENT. DON’T BOTHER BOUT STUPID SM ENTERTAINMENT ANYMORE. i think they’ll offer nicer contracts.&WILL ALSO BE ABLE TO COME TO SINGAPORE. WOOT.

    BUT IF SM ENTERTAINMENT CHANGES THE CONTRACT TO A NOT SO EVIL ONE… THEN, SM ENTERTAINMENT, YOU ARE FORGIVEN.

    super junior, all the way. get the best lawyers. YOU WILL WIN โ™ฅโ™ฅ

    • urm..in my opinion,sMe will nver changes their contract..if they do,i believe it would not for a long term..sMe need a new person to manage them..sMe want to make money,not charity..believe dat…it’s for sure..

  31. omg!!! i am damn sad!!! i hope suju will not be disband!!!

  32. People who are whining that they don’t want SuJu to disband and hope that other members don’t join in the lawsuit…SHAME ON YOU! Would you rather them suffer for our amusement!?!?!? They have every right to join in the lawsuit. I hope EVERY SM band does! Every. Single. Member. Then maybe something can be done about the entertainment industry in Korea. Stop being so caught up in your love for their shows and love them for the humans they are. No one should have to put up with what those boys did just to appease the fan crazed masses. Support the ones you love. Say that you will be there for them whatever choices they make. They went into the entertainment industry for a reason. They wanted to sing. Have faith that they will come out on top and they can continue to sing. Support them during and after the lawsuit in the same way as you did before. Suju HWAITING! AJA AJA DBSK HWAITING! Fight and win against the monsters in SM! If they see that their fans begrudge them rebelling against SM they might lose heart. I want them to succeed. I want them to be happy.

    • i agree with you…
      suju deserve the best after what they had done…
      just, i hope i can watch them together more in future…
      i really hope that…

  33. oh no!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    pLs… tell me this isn’t true!!
    i really Love SUJU very much..
    and i don’t want them to break out..
    SUJU isn’t complete if the memebers aren’t complete..
    pls..
    they are really great and they make good music together..
    pls.. don’t make them break up..

  34. please!!!!!!
    i want suju forever 13…
    even if only a member leave this group, it’s not suju anymore…
    i want to see hangeng perform with suju again..
    i haven’t see him with suju lately…
    hangeng!!!! PLEASE COME BACK!!! I MISS U A LOT….
    SUJU, HWAITING!!!!!

  35. urm..i really like hangeng sooo much..it’s a pain they exprience all of dis prob bcoz they r great performer..if hangeng need to leave SUJU…we must let him go…it might be his happiness to live happy..we can only pray for them..mybe in the future all the 13 boys can be together again..i believe in miracle..what goes around comes around…god knows what ‘he’ need to do..we not in hangeng place..only he know what he feels and its not fair for him if us our fans force him to do the thing that he really want to avoid happen again..friends ties never apart..i’m sure if hangeng really leave sUju,the 13boys can still be friend and we can see it in the future..god bless u…

  36. BUKAN CUMA SATU ORANG TAPI 6 ORANG…
    GIMANA JADINYA SUJU KEMUDIAN HARI ???
    SEKALIPUN ADA PERTEMUAN DAN ADA PERPISAHAN TAPI TETAP AJA GAQ RELA.. WALAUPUN SAYA CUMAN FANS TAPI TETAP SAJA GAK BISA MELIHAT PERPISAHAN ITU.. SEKALIPUN HAL ITU MUNGKIN BENAR TAPI SAYA HANYA MENYAMPAIKAN KOMENTAR DAN KALO MENURT SAYA SM ENT. SENDIRI KETERLALUAN JUGA TERNYATA GRUP BOY BAND YANG SAYA KAGUMI DAN KATANYA INGI DICATAT DALAM SEJARAH AKAN BUBARAN .. BUT I CAN’T DO ANYTHING TO STOP THAT..
    I’M REALLY SAD HER THAT NEWS..

  37. i hate this kind of nes about suju 13 i love them a lot what a stupid reason why people just care w/ the money i hate this

  38. NOT DONGHAE AND LEETEUK TOO! NOOO! I love them all, why are they disbanding? Wah. Irritating. ๐Ÿ˜ I hope it’s not true. Please NO. I’ll pray for them. >.< SUPER JUNIOR FORVER!! Please. I hope they'll stay together FOREVER. Only 13. โค FIGHTING!

  39. OMG!!!!!!!!!
    then, what will happen to their 4th album???????????????????

    SuJu!!!!!!!!!!!!!! T-T(cryng)

  40. evnthough u ddnt lke SuJu plz dnt sy smthng lke tht…

    i hte tvxq bt i still support them coz i’m k-pop fanatic!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    hahhahahahahahahah ๐Ÿ˜„

  41. All of the members should be united. They should have the courage to leave SM. It doesn’t make sense to cry and be depressed and just suffering alone. I think they will get their freedom if they are all for one and one for all.Life is too short and they should live a meaningful lives. I think Korea is a democracy country. Why such kind of entertainment with such reputation exist? One opens the road and the others should follow it easily. What all of the other members are afraid? A moment of suffering will overcome the difficulties for all of your members future.You all may think I will be wrong, but that’s what i can only think for the benefit of the super junior members.
    Just fighting.

  42. ANTI ??? YOUR WORDS ARE IRRITATING !!!!!!!!

  43. i dont believe suju break down why??

  44. hate to say this, but sj might have to go on hiatus in a few years. in korea, a man who is 26 or older must do at least 2 years of military service. although kangin is doing that right now, soon the others will too. leeteuk & heechul have stated that they have been thinking about it and might start their military service next year, or the year after that.

  45. us not wanting the rest of super junior to leave is selfish. there’s a reason that some of them already filed a lawsuit: they were treated POORLY. if this has been happening to them, wouldn’t you want them to leave and find a better company with better conditions? it’s selfish to want them to suffer just so we can have some entertainment.

  46. its kinda very selfish of us 2 not want suju 2 split…i bet alot of fans are sad bout this but if SMENT is really treating thm badly we shld support d members instead of asking them 2 stay and suffer…..if that is what that makes them happy we shloud let it be ! I f****** h8 SMENT so much ! GREEDY SHITS ! Cant suju go 2 JYP ENT thn stay as suju…i tink if they cld do that its much better

  47. WHAT?! It shouldn’t, it couldn’t, it mustn’t and it wouldn’t!!! I don’t want this to be true! T^T Stupid, stupid SME, I really despise you…
    Super Junior should stick together but I guess there are not so much we ELFs can do? ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Except to 13elieve in them โค

    After reading this, I started to cry…this may be selfish to say but please, please Super Junior don't break up!

  48. Okay.. this article was a YEAR ago. I think it’s safe to say that Leeteuk, Kangin, Yesung, Donghae and Eunhyuk aren’t going anywhere. Cept Leeteuk and Kangin. They’re off to the army.

  49. damn u SM!!
    if anything happen to suju
    ELF lets go what u waiting for….ATTACK!!!
    SM cant treat our beloved oppa like slaves!
    SM are trying to kill SUJU huh??!!

    at least give them rest for 3 days in one week….
    their schedule are fully packed!! SM what the hell u think

  52. why SM Entertaiment doesn’t heard about hangeng sickness ? because of them , heechul doesn’t want to smile anymore…hangeng was a good friend to heechul..4 me , HanChul 4 ever…EunHae too

  53. What I’ve learned from all of this is that, yes, life has it’s ups and downs. And, yes, there will always be hardships. But look at all the amazing memories SuJu has as 13. Those will never be forgotten. Not by ELF. And not by Super Junior – all 13 of them. Also, not by our beloved Zhou Mi and Henry. SO not by Super Junior – all 15 of them. It’s unfortunate that many things have happened to our boys. They have gone through what most idol groups don’t go through. The fights, accidents, stress — members leaving — etc etc. They have seen it all, yet they have tried to smile for us ELF the whole time. When they smile, we smile. When they cry, we cry. But SuJu has risen over their mountains, over and over again. They have triumphed where most would have given up – if anything all of this has only made them stronger — as a team, as friends, as brothers. They have grown with each other, and their love for each other has grown as well. So, when people say that they wished things could go back to how it was as 13 — or when people say that they aren’t happy now — It makes me mad! Yes, they were happy as 13, but it doesn’t mean they aren’t as happy now — Things happen for a reason. We have to accept and move on. SuJu did, so ELF has to as well. Super Junior is a solid group. They will always be 13+2 – forever~ Even apart — the love they have for each other is too strong. It can overcome anything. Super Junior is making new memories everyday — and they are smiling everyday. They are happy, so we should be too. Super Junior is FOREVER~ Keep the faith~ Keep smiling~ FIGHTING~ SUJU LAST MAN STANDING~

  54. if SJ disbanded, SMent will DIE (insolvent).
    we all know, SUJU is “danger idol”.
    if SM not making SJ to ‘work hard’, SM no income.

    The reason— only 1, the ELF.
    ELF is not just 1 !!! millions !!!

    see~ SM so greedy for the money!!!

    and I’m not surprised, cause if each of them
    be a guest on variety shows, they often
    reveal the “feeling” a little :’)
    i can see your face, ์˜ค๋น ~~ ๐Ÿ˜ฅ ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

    I really hope they can “out” from SM.
    Making own company, like Shinhwa ๐Ÿ™‚
    more comfortable~

  55. Wow, I’ve been an ELF for a few years now and I had no idea about this.
    It explains a lot. Especially because those members were always quiet on social media every time a friend of theirs would file a lawsuit.
    Shit just got real.

    Super Junior fighting!
