Girls’ Generation, Jang Dong Gun, BoA, and more sue cosmetic clinic

20130108_celebritiessue_cosmeticclinic

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.

They better pay them for using their image and claiming they made someone else's work.

The real surgeons must be pissed.

I see that Clinic is keeping it classy, taking credit for other surgeons work. No place should be using anyone's pic without their consent anyway.

*or have had plastic surgery in the past in that clinic.
There, fixed it.

I thought the girls from Chocolat were PS-free?
eishastan 8th-Jan-2013 08:14 pm (UTC)
After looking at the celeb list i wouldn't go to that clinic.

Most of them either have bad and obvious surgery or are still fug.

"This will mislead people into thinking we have connections to the clinic or have had plastic surgery in the past." oh, the irony...

You should get permission to use someone's image in advertising but???? "This will mislead people into thinking we have connections to the clinic or have had plastic surgery in the past.” ok.

I get suing them for wrong use of image, but lol at at SM being mad at the idea of people thinking that soshi members got work done, especially sica and fany, the two that everyone knows got shit done lmao
ebenetwo 9th-Jan-2013 02:49 pm (UTC)
lol "now bitch you know God didn't make that face!"
supplanter 8th-Jan-2013 10:15 pm (UTC)
haha

What context are their pics in? Like "We did this! :D" or "You could look like this! :D"? Either way, dunno what the rules are for using ppl's images for one's business (like if it were really illegal how do tabloids work at all?)
hileahrious 8th-Jan-2013 10:26 pm (UTC)
lol fany of all people

Wow smh at everyone ignoring the fact that a business is using the images of celebrities in order to promote their business just because its plastic surgery. If this had been some 800 number sex line using celeb images, then people would be all wtf about it.
eishastan 9th-Jan-2013 12:24 am (UTC)
this! they should pay if they are promoting their business with them, i'm sure the original clinics signed some confidentiality contract and others are getting promotion for something they didn't do.
djlancerock 8th-Jan-2013 11:07 pm (UTC)
lol
hellodee16 8th-Jan-2013 11:09 pm (UTC)
Tiffany isn't aging well huh..
eishastan 9th-Jan-2013 12:36 am (UTC)
She has one of the best ps jobs out there if you ask me.

For the amount of surgery we assume she's got she looks great, take a look at Bom or Solbi for example, their faces are beyond repair, that's too much gone wrong, Tiffany is too much but done right imo.

"or have had plastic surgery in the past." lololol

"or have had plastic surgery in the past"

Tiffany girl your face is morphing, plz.

But they should sue, it's false advertising.
unicornios 8th-Jan-2013 11:41 pm (UTC)
or have had plastic surgery in the past.

Oh the irony lol. Come on, people aren't that stupid.
