SM Entertainment and the members of JYJ have failed to reach an agreement regarding their disputed contracts. A new trial will take place on September 13th.
The latest trial in case occurred on August 10th. Representatives for both parties expressed their views to the court and each other over an hour and 30 minute process. At the end of the trial, neither side was able to come to an agreement, forcing the lawsuit to continue for even longer.
SM Entertainment and JYJ have been in trial since last May, going through 6 different hearings in the process. While both sides have argued their case in court numerous times, the court has advised that a mutual agreement be reached.
"SM Entertainment's side is to 'forget about the past', and our side is to settle all the accounts and issues in court," JYJ's attorney stated.
The parties' lack of agreement and extension of the trial increases the likelihood that the court will have to settle the matter themselves.
SM Entertainment and JYJ have been fighting each other in court ever since 2009 when the three members sued the company for having unreasonable contracts.
