After School’s Uee spotted at TVXQ Yunho’s training graduation | SBS PopAsia
On August 18th KST, Super Junior's Choi Siwon and TVXQ's Shim. met peacefully and helped support each other during the discharge, showing the emulating the close relationship of Super Junior and TVXQ themselves. Super Junior's Kim Heechul and Donghae and TVXQ's Yunho proved their DBSK came to support us ^^ SM Familyâ€™s loyalty is the best!!!. During the latest episode of JTBC's “Ask Us Anything,” Super Junior's Kim Heechul revealed why people avoid sitting next to TVXQ's Yunho.
All of their watershed moments were very public, and yet internal scandals continue to rise from the house of SM. It is with this in mind that we must ask: To explore SM Entertainment's troubled history with artist relations, you only need to start with the words that f x member Amber posted on her Instagram earlier this year. No more," she said. She described being told she "wasn't good enough" despite often being the lone force behind her marketing plans, music, visuals and general "job hunting.
While many fans are still reeling from the shock, for longtime observers of SM and Amber in particularher cry for help seems eerily familiar.

As we mentioned, Amber's statement had a similar tone and timing to one made by Henry. In his own, he said "I can't do it alone any longer. It's been a mistake since 9 years ago," and reached out directly to fans by adding "if you see this message please speak on my behalf, the company won't listen to me. As it turns out, though, these incidents might not be so random, and they represent a larger problem in the way that the Korean pop industry operates.

You might recall that prior to Henry and Amber's incidents with SM Entertainment, the label had a highly publicized legal battle with several original members of EXO: Kris, Luhan, and Tao. All three members were Chinese, and their problems arose primarily from their own desire to work outside of the confines of their original contracts, in a way more suited to the Chinese market.
In some cases, this meant solo singles or acting. In others, this meant cosmetic endorsements. But to SM Entertainment, who had signed all three artists to an exclusive contract, it meant a conflict of interest. As news of discord came out, all three members' activities were quietly put to a halt, until they eventually left the group entirely.
As lawsuits traded hands back and forth, fans were reminded of a nearly identical situation several years prior: That was, of course, former Super Junior member Hangeng. Although his split from SM brought the label's infamous ten-plus year contracts to the attention of the public, the damage was done; he has not promoted in Korea since that time, a fate often shared by SM Entertainment's ex-artists.
Hangeng isn't the only former SM Town resident that's had issues with contract length, and the dearly departed members of EXO weren't alone in their quest for more activity options.
