Baek Ji Young
Baek Ji Young, known to kdrama fans as "The Queen of the Ost," wasrecently awarded partial damages in her second lawsuit against a plasticsurgery clinic. The lawsuit sought financial damages because herphotograph was used without her permission to advertise plastic surgeryservices.
In this case, the Seoul Central District Court ordered the surgeon topay Baek Ji Young $3,600 for using photographs of her in a bikini topromote his liposuction services. The photos were taken withoutpermission from her online shopping site. The singer had originallyasked for ten times the amount of the financial award, but the courtlowered the damages to $3,600.
Only last month, Baek Ji Young and actress Nam Gyuri also won partialdamages in a similar case because their photos were used to promoteanother cosmetic surgery clinic. In that case, the Seoul CentralDistrict Court awarded each actress about $4,000 in damages.
"Using their photos without consent could diminish the value of their work as models," ruled the court.
