Los Angeles, June 22, former Super Junior member Han Geng, has a press conference at the Mu Tian Yu in the Great Wall, to say that his new album and concert will be released in July and he will start fresh, as a new individual artist. Han Geng is currently trying to get a contract termination from Korean company, SM Entertainment. His lawyer, said that the outcome could happen in the near future. He also received some new information from the Korean side, Han Geng will have to pay a large amount of money as compensation, however, Han Geng expressed that he shouldn’t lose confidence, and that he shouldn’t have to pay anything. Han Geng expressed his thanks, and hope that his SJ members will come see his concert.
On June 22, in the afternoon, Han Geng appeared at Mu Tian Yu in the Great Wall, to his album “Han Xin” coming out at the end of July. Dressed in a gray suit, he appeared slightly nervous, although he was smiling the entire time. He said he was now “very happy”, “very happy”. As for the concert, Han Geng said that in addition there are some of his own songs, although he’s not that wellknown. He’s started preparing for everything in January and even learned about music. He hopes his music will be good. But he was very mysterious about the guest that will appear in his concert.
Han Geng’s concert will take place on July 17 at the Beijing Exhibition Hall. The time to buy tickets is not official yet. On July 27 will be the day Han Geng’s album comes out. In the album, there’s a mixture of jazz, ballads, and R&B as well as other styles. They even invited Michael Jackson’s choreographers to create the dances. Yuan Wei, Fang Wen Shan, and Di Zi, as well as other well-known producers, have joined in the production of the album. Han Geng said his music in the album are the ones he’s always wanted to do. When Han Geng was asked whether or not he was worried about other young new faces appearing (as in competing with him) he replied with a smile “It’s okay, I have a baby face! Also, I believe that I still have the power to dance” It seems like Han Geng has a lot of confidence, especially with picking the Great Wall as the location to start his new singing career.
Although the road for starting over is hard, Han Geng still has not given up. He has not yet joined a new company. Because of this, he’s been learning more information about the entertainment business from his friends, who’ve helped him a lot. Friends such as Jackie Chan, Kevin Tsai, Show Luo, Yu Quan, and the Happy Camp Family have sent their support through a VCR. Jackie Chan also expressed that he hopes the two of them will be able to collaborate in the future. That same day, there was also a number of fans that showed up to cheer Han Geng on. There were also many people that put words supporting Han Geng on walls.
Also, Han Geng at the press conference also received the Great Wall baton《长城守护者的接力棒》and a certificate from the World Expo volunteers. Along with singing the theme song of the Asian Games. The new Han Geng has put a lot of effort in community work.
But right now, SM Entertainment and Han Geng are still in the middle of their contract lawsuit. Another news is that the Korean side is asking for a large compensation, 20 Billion won. Han Geng’s lawyer said at the conference that Korean law doesn’t provide trial time, but SM Entertainment has used some tricks to delay the date of the judgement. The Korean side said they decided that they will “delay justice so it comes later, there might be the possiblity that they might need courage. They have to make the right decisions at the right times”.
Han Geng said that he will believe in the lawyers’ decision, he said that there had been former Korean celebrities that have also terminated their contracts with the same company, and that their contracts were sucessfully terminated. So he believes that he won’t need to pay compensation. Han Geng was confident that he’s not in a bad situation.
Although the lawsuit is still going on, Han Geng is grateful towards SM Entertainment, they’ve helped him succeed, but he terminated his contract because of lack of respect and friction. Han Geng revealed that other Super Junior members were happy for his solo concert and blessed him. Han Geng wished that Super Junior will be able to attend his concert.
