Yoochun has been ordered to pay damages to his alleged sexual assault victim, but has so far managed to avoid punishment for not doing so. Now he’s claiming that he simply cannot pay because he’s broke.
The lawyer for the woman has stated that he owes her interest.
"Park Yoochun must pay Ms. A ₩50.0 million KRW (about $43,700 USD), and if he fails to do so, he must pay interest of 12% from September 1, 2019 up until the day he pays it off. The amount of money he’s required to pay as of right now including the interest is ₩56.0 million KRW (about $48,900 USD)."
Yoochun responded that he has less than $1000 in the bank, and her lawyer brought up fair questions about where the money from even his current activities are going.
"Under whose name is the profits he made through his fan signing and concerts? We can’t help but suspect that he’s hiding his earnings in order to avoid paying his settlement fees."
"If Park Yoochun really doesn’t have the ₩50.0 million KRW (about $43,700 USD) to pay, he should at least reveal his plan of how he’ll pay it off. If he wants to continue participating in activities while receiving the public’s love in order to make profits, how are we supposed to understand his refusal to compensate a victim for the damages he imposed?"
[asianjunkies comment]Shameless shit from him, honestly. The guy has made millions through his peak, is now claiming that he’s broke, and even if he did actually manage to squander it all, he should be able to get it as I thought that was the reason for his comeback attempt.
Guy is garbage through and through.
