Avex, Avex, Avex. Haven't they learned anything from the fight between JJY (Junsu, Jejung and Yuchun) and their Korean agency SM Entertainment? According to translated reports, the answer is no. (And my commentary below will be based on the translated reports. If something changes, I'll let ya know.)
The news flying all over the internet is that AVEX -- the agency many fans including myself thought they could trust to at least give the three members a fair shake -- apparently wanted more than the trio could give when they sought to change the terms of their contract with the three members.
Junsu, Jejung and Yuchun are (were?) riding a massive wave of success in the Japanese market with their latest mini-album titled "The..." debuting at #1 on the Oricon WEEKLY charts and moving almost 140,000 copies in the midst of slump in the Japanese market. Jejung was chosen as the costar in a high profile video for one of the most popular and well known Japanese artists in Japan, Ayumi. And their LIVE DVD from their 'Thanksgiving' concerts in DOME also shot to #1 on the DVD sales chart in Japan.
Through all of this, they never publicly complained about anything. But in actuality, the trio apparently were going through a rough time with AVEX in Japan comparable to the terrible time they are having with SM in Korea.
