SM was fine with all the other business ventures owned and advertized by JYJ, like Junsu’s father pizza shop for example. The same way it is fine with a bunch of companies that their other idols own. So would it really be a win win
solution should be for JYJ and parents to convince SM that the business worth the group’s brand? I haven’t heard anything of Crebeau
since the lawsuit and meanwhile
TVXQ advertize for Missha. Looks that TVXQ image was worth more
than a questionable business.
Idk whether the placenta thingy was a serious concern in Korea in 2009, so I’m not sure that it was considered as risk factor at that time
The conflict was about SM’s concern whether it would limit TVXQ chances to get similar cfs/endorsements like crebeau’s main product. Missha was interested to hire them as model since 2009 but it didn’t go through until 2011.
Here’s my what if scenario: if 3 members & parents promised to give royalties + fees to SM and Yunho-Changmin, and in return, they could use group’s brand + images in promotion, wouldn’t it be a win-win solution for all parties involved?
