SM to appeal the ruling over Hangeng’s lawsuit

28 Dec

Super Junior’s Hangeng won his lawsuit against SM Entertainment to void his contract. Seoul Central District Court civil court 30th division (head judge Noh Mankyung) ruled in favor of the plaintiff on December 20th in the case filed by group Super Junior’s Chinese member Hangeng against the management company SM Entertainment. The court held that the contracts made between Hangeng and SM in January 2003, February 2007 and December 2007 were void.

Hangeng filed a lawsuit in December 2009 against the management company SM to confirm the invalidity of the contract. Afterward, Hangeng ended all contacts with SM. Then, SM revealed their stance claiming, “we want to solve this by communication for Super Junior.” However, when they could not get in touch with Hangeng, they chose an attorney to act for them in the lawsuit.

In 2001, Hangeng was discovered through an audition in China and worked as the Chinese member of Super Junior since 2005.
