K-pop bands JYJ and TVXQ may confront each other at the upcoming premier event of the film “Big Match” for the first time since JYJ quit TVXQ in 2009, a local online media outlet reported on Monday.

JYJ members Kim Jae-joong, Yuchun and Junsu -- the three former members of then-five-member TVXQ -- will attend the “Big Match” premier that takes place in Wangsimni, eastern Seoul, on Nov. 24. They will support the lead actor Lee Jung-jae from the same agency, C-JeS Entertainment.

The two remaining TVXQ members, Changmin and Yunho, will also be present at the event to support singer-actor BoA of S.M. Entertainment.

The two boy bands have never attended the same entertainment event since they split in 2009. The JYJ members filed for an injunction against S.M. in mid-2009, alleging their 13-year exclusive contract was unreasonably long.

The case dragged on till Nov. 2012, for three years and four months, when SM Entertainment and JYJ reached an agreement to terminate all contracts between the two parties and not to interfere with each other’s future activities.

The unprecedented encounter may pressurize the organizer over assigning seats for not only JYJ and TVXQ, but also their agencies.
