TVXQ’s Xiah, Micky, Hero form new group

Korean boy band TVXQ members Hero Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun and Xiah Junsu, currently embroiled in a legal battle with their agency SM Entertainment, have formed a separate group through which they will pursue their singing careers in Japan.

“Jaejoong, Yoochun and Junsu have formed a new unit and they have signed with us to carry out their musical activities,” Japanese management firm Avex stated on its official website on Wednesday.

“They have also decided to hold dome events in an expression of gratitude toward their fans… we will update you on further details as soon as they are set,” Avex added.

It’s reported that the three will not sing any TVXQ songs at the events but their own songs which have already gone into production.

The move comes as a surprise to the Korean music industry and the boys’ fans since the three had long expressed that TVXQ would remain intact despite its conflict with SM.

SM expressed its disappointment at the news, saying the three singers “irresponsibly abandoned TVXQ by starting up a unit without considering the outcome of the lawsuit and the responsibility they would possibly have to undertake thereafter.”
