<blockquote>Exclusive Contract Periods - 'TVXQ' is 13 years and 'BoA' is 15 years

TVXQ's Kim Jaejoong finalized his contract with SM on May 14th, 2003,
Kim Junsu on February 12th, 2000, and Park Yoochun on June 30th, 2003.
There were five changes to the contract after this. The contract period
was extended from 10 years to 13 years and the income division was
slightly increased for the celebrity.
However, the clauses regarding the extended contract or compensation
which were ruled by the Courts as unlawful were not changed. The five
changes of the contract occurred in December, 2003, February, 2007,
March, 2007, October, 2008 and February of 2009.

If you look at the contract, it can be seen that SM holds almost no
obligations. All there is for the agency to do is to take care of the
group's popularity and tell them of their activities. On the other
hand, TVXQ must follow the orders of the manager SM gives them, and
cannot personally make any promises or contracts regarding
activities.They cannot talk about the internal affairs of SM. If a show
or performance has a setback for no special reason, TVXQ must
compensate. They must make two full albums every year and must release
an album six months before the termination of their contract and
perform all activities diligently. TVXQ must get permission from SM to
give any of their compositions or arrangements to a third party. But SM
is allowed to give any SM singer TVXQ's compositions without the
consent of TVXQ.

Although the income division aspect has improved, they do not receive
any money until at least 50K copies are sold. If they sell 50K~100K,
the group receives 2% of sales, sell 100K~200K and receive 3%, sell
over 200K and they receive 5% of total sales. The group must then split
this income. If the appearance on a show is not regular, SM receives
all the money for publicity. If the contract is terminated for any
reason, TVXQ must pay compensation worth three times the investment
money and twice the amount of their forecast income as well. This also
applies when both sides have agreed to the termination or when SM is
the cause of the termination.
