SM Entertainment and JYJ′s long three-year-and-four-month-long legal fight has come to an end with a mutual agreement.

Through an official press release issued on November 28, SM Entertainment said it decided to wrap up the issue "to avoid bringing additional harm to U-Know Yunho and Max Changmin, who are active as TVXQ (DBSK), and to avoid making any more unneeded issues."

It added, "The three (JYJ) have confirmed that they are not willing to be active any longer as TVXQ, and so SM Entertainment has decided that there is no need for the company to continue to manage the three. We have also decided not to interfere in each other′s matters in the future, and this is how the trial has come to an end with today′s hearing."

With the end of the long legal journey, attention has been paid to whether JYJ will be able to appear again in the three major channels.

About the reason JYJ has not been appearing in KBS2′s Music Bank or its variety shows such as Win Win, KBS has previously said, "Because the issue between JYJ and its former agency isn′t finished, KBS has been keeping its eye on the results of the trial with as objective an attitude as possible. Normally, celebrities involved in a legal battle refrain from appearing [in such shows], as their appearances can affect the results of the legal processions. We plan to invite them or book their appearance in shows depending on the results of the trial."

Ever since JYJ filed for a cancellation of its contract against SM Entertainment on July 31, 2009, Kim Jae Joong, Park Yoo Chun and Kim Junsu haven′t been able to appear in variety or music shows on the three major channels. They have, instead, made appearances in dramas produced by outsourced productions.

Now that the legal battle has come to an end, there is a chance that the group will start to appear on main channel shows as singers again.

After filing their suit against SM Entertainment, the members of JYJ have signed a new management contract with C-JeS Entertainment, and have since been active in film, drama and musicals.
