Baek Ji-young wins surgery caseSinger Baek Ji-young will receive 5 million won ($4,320) from a local plastic surgery clinic, according to Seoul Central District Court yesterday.
Baek previously filed suit against the clinic after staff used a photo of her for online promotions without her consent.
“Although the posts seems to be reviewing television programs, they are actually part of a marketing strategies developed by the clinic,” the court said. “If the photos continue to be used without consent, the value of Baek as a model will only fall.”
Actress Nam Gyu-ri of SBS drama “49 Days” also sued the clinic and won an award of 5 million won for similar reasons.
