Kim Yu-na files suit against her former agency

SEOUL - Korean figure skater Kim Yu-na has taken her former agency to court to recover portions of her endorsement money.

Lee Kim & Partners, a Seoul-based law firm representing Kim, said Monday that the skater has filed a suit against IB Sports and that the first court appearance over their case was held last Wednesday.

According to the law firm, Kim claims that IB Sports owes her 894 million won ($794,766) from endorsement deals she signed while under contract with that management company.

Kim’s deal with IB Sports expired in April last year, and she and her mother founded a new agency named All That Sports. Kim, the reigning Olympic gold medalist and the 2009 world champion, is one of the most popular athletes in the country and is a highly sought-after star among advertisers here.
