JYJ will be able to have more opportunities to promote their activities in Japan.

On February 16, JYJ's agency C-JeS Entertainment wrote on their official website, "C-JeS(JYJ) and AVEX agreed on finishing all of the lawsuits occurred between the two parties. C-JeS and AVEX will not interfere in each other's activities from now on."

Back in January 2013, Japan's Tokyo Regional Court ordered that AVEX cannot insist its exclusive rights for JYJ's management in Japan and pay approximately 660 million Yen (approx 7.8 billion KRW) as compensation for damage.

An official of C-JeS Entertainment stated, "AVEX lodged an appeal to this order and Tokyo High Court reached the agreement between the two parties."

JYJ made an exclusive contract with AVEX through their agency C-JeS Entertainment in February 2010. AVEX unilaterally suspended in September 2010 due to the conflicts of the both sides' opinion for range of activities. C-JeS also notified AVEX of cancellation of the contract and continued the group's activities in Japan.

Afterwards, AVEX insisted they have exclusive right for JYJ's management in Japan and JYJ proceeded lawsuits to prohibit AVEX from interfering activities and claim for damages. In January 2013, JYJ won the lawsuit and reached the final agreement through the court.

CEO Baek Chang-joo of C-JeS Entertainment said, "We'd like to express thanks to Japanese judiciary. We have not concluded all the legal dispute related to JYJ's activities in Japan. AVEX agreed on not interfering in JYJ's activities in the future and JYJ's activities are now legally guaranteed. We are so pleased that all the long legal disputes of the JYJ members are concluded. We hope the group will be able to have more opportunities to meet the fans in Japan."
