[News] Super Junior Was Banned To Perform In Taiwan Due To The Dispute Between HS Media and Jing Fu Broadcast Corporation?

26 Feb

Last January the 2011 Dream of Asia Concert in Taiwan was help by Jin Fu Broadcast Corporation in New Taipei City, including Korean groups Super Junior, 2PM, 4Minute, Beast and MBLAQ.

Unknowingly, the Korean management agency HS Media was accused of maliciously breaching the contract.Jing Fu Broadcast Corporation’s Chairman Liao Minqi expressed that Super Junior’s most popular member Choi Siwon didn’t attend the event because of his tight schedule that cause 5,000 Taiwanese fans to refund their tickets which made the Jing Fu Broadcast to lose NT$80,000,000.

However, Korean HS Media manager Jason explained that one member is an individual problem and the management didn’t do it deliberately. He also added that if Jin Fu Broadcast is worried about the losses then the Taiwan organizers should have cancelled the concert in advance.The dispute between both companies didn’t just end there, Liao Minqi (Jing Fu Broadcast) stated that the signed contract between both parties stipulated that Super Junior must not come again to hold concerts in Taiwan prior to the end of April, but HS Media already had an arranged concert for Super Junior in Taipei on the 12th and 13th of March. As a result not only will Jing Fu Broadcast Corporation will be suing for breach of contract, they would not even rule out that a request would be made to the courts to take action directly related to Super Junior’s Taipei concerts in March.

Zhao Shaowei, director-general of Taipei’s Association of Performing Arts, Economics and Culture, who attended the press conference reminded Taiwan management companies that if they wish to invite Korean artists to come to Taiwan, do not sign contracts with authorized management companies who rely on being able to speak Chinese, rather they should go directly to the real management company of the invited artists.

However, a statement from SM Entertainment said that the performance last January 22 was definitely not a contract signed directly with a Taiwan company.The contract for coming to Taiwan to perform also clearly indicated that “there would be one member unable to attend”, HS Media was the brokering company responsible for that performance and not the management agency. Taiwan’s Jing Fu Broadcast Corporation has no right to seek redress from the courts in relation to Super Junior coming to Taiwan to perform.

So as a result Super Junior’s concert on March will not be affected by this issue.
