Girls’ Generation, Jang Dong Gun, BoA, and more sue cosmetic clinic
Top celebrities, including actors Kim Nam Gil, Jang Dong Gun, and Song Hye Kyo as well as BoA and Girls’ Generation‘s Tiffany and Jessica, are suing a cosmetic clinic for 120 million won (~112,946 USD).
According to the Seoul Central District Court, the celebrities filed the suit against the Gangnam clinic for using their images and names without permission. The stars stated, “People can access their site just by looking up our names on the internet. This will mislead people into thinking we have connections to the clinic or have had plastic surgery in the past.”
Last month, Girls’ Generation’s Jessica, actress Su Ae, and Wonder Girls filed a similar suit for 220 million won (~207,068 USD) in damages against a dental clinic in Seoul.
