A plastic surgery clinic in Gangnam faces a lawsuit for the unauthorized use of images of top stars like Jang Dong Gun, Song Hye Kyo, Kim Nam Gil, BoA, Girls’ Generation’s Jessica and Tiffany.
According to news reports in local news agencies, the plastic surgery
clinic finds itself in legal battle after violating the right of
publicity of the mentioned domestic top stars.
Further reports said Jang Dong Gun and the six other celebrities
named are to be paid 120 million won (around 1.2 million USD) as
damages, stated in the claim filed with the Seoul Central District
“The plastic surgery clinic was found to be operating a blog and
circulating these artists’ images on the Internet to promote the
hospital without their consent or permission, thus is an infringement of
these celebrities’ rights,” reports quoted from the statement.
Similar cases were reported to have been filed in December, infringing upon the rights of Lee Byung Hun, the Wonder Girls and Girls’ Generation.

Half a dozen stars such as actor Jang Dong-gun are suing a
cosmetic clinic for W120 million in damages for using their pictures
without permission (US$1=W1,064).According to the Seoul Central
District Court on Monday, they include actress Song Hye-kyo, actor Kim
Nam-gil, singer BoA, and Jessica and Tiffany of Girls' Generation. The
clinic in the affluent Gangnam area in Seoul posted advertisements on
its website featuring their photos and names without their permission,
Last month, Wonder Girls, Jessica of Girls' Generation and
actress Su-ae filed a similar suit against a dental clinic in
Yeoksam-dong, Seoul, seeking W220 million in damages. On Dec. 1, in a
suit filed by Shin Eun-kyung, the Seoul central District Court ruled an
Oriental medicine clinic has to pay the actress W35 million.
I love reading year-end reviews – it lets me walk down memory
lane and reminisce about all the great (and not-so-great) dramas I
watched or passed on this year. It’s not a surprise that our guest
blogger from Outside Seoul took a fun and different approach in this very enjoyable read. -soomp
Whether it was a common plot device like this year’s abundance of
time traveling or a little detail like a prominently featured umbrella,
2012’s Kdramas have been nothing if not on trend.
The question is, who did it best?
The tragic fate of red dressesHistory of a Salaryman (January 2) * Gentleman’s Dignity (May 26)
These two comedies don’t have much in common—one is a goofy workplace
gagfest and the other is a grown-up romance. They do share one thing,
though: knit dresses being slowly unraveled by a single loose thread. In
both cases, the dresses are fire-engine red and the strings are held by
the show’s male lead. Taking place in the dramas’ first episodes, these
dress-demolishing scenes are silly good fun and also serve to develop
the characters that are involved.
History of a Salaryman’s hopeless schulb of
a male lead doesn’t always think about the consequences of his actions,
so of course he would absently tug at a red thread he notices while
sitting in a hotel lobby. And the female lead’s cartoony outrage when
she realizes her dress is shrinking is further evidence of the nasty
temper that this episode has already established for her.
The parallel scene in Gentleman’s Dignity is
played out on a bigger scale—instead of the thread stretching across a
single room, it trails for at least a city block before either character
realizes what’s happened. Instead of being mad like Salaryman’s
female lead, Yi Soo is paralyzed with impotent embarrassment and can’t
even manage to cover herself without the male lead’s help. The male lead
shows his character in the aftermath of the unwinding: suave,
sophisticated, and take-no-prisoners, he barely bats an eyelash before
appropriating a tablecloth and artistically folding it into a skirt

Shows about groups of female friends are a long-running trend in Korean drama, but this focus has shifted in the wake of 2009’s Boys over Flowers. In 2012, it was close male friendships that seemed to anchor every drama.
Whether they met in prison, high school, or the royal court (three
places frequent drama watchers will realize aren’t entirely dissimilar),
this year’s men were always there for each other—except when they were
throwing each other off cliffs, anyway. These modern-day Flower Fours
looked to each other for camaraderie, support, and guidance, as well as
the occasional nation-saving suicide mission.

Happy Valentine’s Day, Soompiers!
Did you receive a little gift from a special someone? Did you know
that in Korea, it’s tradition for girls to give guys chocolate? They can
be in a relationship or the girl can use this opportunity to confess to
the guy she has a crush on. Korea celebrates another day where the guys
give girls candy. That day is on March 14 and is called “White Day.”
To celebrate this special lovely day, I had the privilege of looking
at some of Korea’s well known married celebrity couples and wow! There’s
quite a lot and here’s my top 10. If you think a couple is worth
mentioning or you don’t agree with some of the people on the list,
please comment below!
