C-JeS thus decided to end the contract with AVEX and held JYJ’s Japanese promotional activities alone. As AVEX continued to claim that they had exclusive rights over JYJ’s management in Japan, JYJ filed lawsuits to restrain AVEX from claiming for damages and to stop them from intervening in JYJ’s Japanese activities.
In January 2013, Japan’s Tokyo Regional Court ordered that AVEX should not persist and that they should pay approximately 660 million Yen (around 6.4 million USD) as damage compensation to C-JeS. Regarding the dispute’s end, Baek Chang-Joo, CEO of C-JeS expressed gratitude towards Japan judiciary and relief that the long dispute has finally came to an end. He also stated that they hope JYJ “will have more opportunities to meet the fans in Japan.”
