Baek Ji Young wins another lawsuit against a plastic surgeon for commercial usage of her photos without permission
Baek Ji Young has reportedly won another lawsuit against a plastic surgeon for commercial usage of her photos without permission.
According to media outlet News1, the Seoul Central District Court for civil appeals ruled in favor of Baek Ji Young in the case against plastic surgeon Mr. Song, who runs a cosmetic surgery clinic in Songpagu, Seoul, on July 17. Although the damages were originally estimated to be 5 million KRW (~$4,800 USD), the court ruled for 3 million KRW (~$2,900 USD) in compensation.
The court stated, "We noticed that Mr. Song used Ms. Baek"s photos and name on his plastic surgery clinic"s blog with the goal of attracting visitors to it for promotional purposes... Since Mr. Song used Baek Ji Young"s name and photos without permission for profit, it was a violation of her personal rights."
Baek Ji Young also partially won two lawsuits against plastic surgeons for unapproved commercial usage of her name and photos in the past.
On January 13, childhood photos of miss A’s Suzy and Kara’s Kang Ji Young surfaced online. Suzy’s childhood photo was posted on a local online community board under the title, “Suzy’s elementary school photo.” In the photo, Suzy is seen wearing a tiger hat and making a cute “V” sign with her hand. Her playful expression is slightly different from her current image, but her “porcelain-like” skin and big eyes are the exact same as now.
Kara’s Kang Ji Young revealed her childhood photo through the January 14 episode of KBS “Invincible Youth 2.” (KBS pre-released the photo prior to airing the show). Kang Ji Young’s adorable smile and hand gesture, and her facial features impressed everyone on the set. “From all the childhood photos, Kang Ji Young’s garnered the most interest because she looks exactly the same as now. Her innocent impression made all the guests smile at her,” an official from KBS said.
These two photos prove that not all K-Pop celebrities get plastic surgeries (not that it’s a bad thing). What other celebrity childhood photos have impressed you in the past?
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.

Singer Baek Ji-young and actress Nam Gyoo-ri on Monday won damages from a plastic surgery clinic that had used their photos for advertising without their permission. The Seoul Central District Court on Monday ordered the clinic's owner to pay them each W5 million (US$1=W1,165).
The court found the owner guilty of infringing the rights of the celebrities for profit by posting their photos on the clinic's blog without their permission.
Earlier, actor Jang Dong-gun and 15 other entertainment figures filed a similar lawsuit against an eye doctor but lost the case because the court found their photos were posted by a contracted third party.
At present, girl group Wonder Girls, some members of Girls' Generation and actress Su-ae are suing a dentist in Gangnam for W220 million for using their photos and names without their permission.
Baek Ji Young-Nam Gyuri Win Court Battle Against Plastic SurgeonArtistsBaek Ji Young and Nam Gyuri will be compensated for a plastic surgeon's violation of publicity rights in his illegal use of the stars' photos in advertising his practice.
On June 24, it was reported that the court has ruled a $5,000 of payment by the plastic surgeon to Baej Ji Young and Nam Gyuri.
The judge stated that the associates at the plastic surgery clinic used the celebrities' photos on their blogs in a deliberate attempt to market and advertise the clinic without proper consent of the public figures. As such, Baek Ji Young and Nam Gyuri's general value as advertising models have taken a hit.
The right of publicity applies to well-known public figures and refers to their ownership of their images.
On June 16, however, actor Jang Dong Gun and a group of celebrities lost a similar lawsuit that was filed against a plastic surgeon for using their photos without permission, citing that such use has driven up the traffic to his website and linked the celebrities to plastic surgeries by association.
Atlantic Article Blames K-Pop For Rise In Plastic Surgeries Among South Korean Teens: Is The Quest For A Perfect Face Corrupting Young Fans?

The Atlantic article also pointed to several K-pop artists (like G.Na shown here) endorsement deals with plastic surgeons as sending a dangerous message to young, impressionable fans.Teen plastic surgeries in South Korea are on the rise, and K-pop is to blame, according US magazine The Atlantic.
In an article published Friday, entitled "The K-Pop Plastic Surgery Obsession," author Zara Stone explores whether K-pop icons are responsible for South Korea leading the world in plastic surgery.
"The idea here [in Korea] is that you like the appearance of the idols and you should try and look like them," explained writer James Turnbull who lectures in Korea on issues of feminism and pop culture.
"K-pop is a package that's not confined to the music."
One in five South Korean women has had plastic surgery of some kind, according to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, in contrast to one in 20 American women.
According to Stone, that number is on the rise among the South Korean teens, due to the ever-increasing popularity of K-pop.
"I like Girls' Generation," said South Korean schoolgirl Kim RyeoGyeong from the rural town of Gumi, 115 miles south of Seoul.
"They have double eyelids and a small face, a round forehead from an implant. They say they didn't do any surgery, but I know they did."
Gumi High School student Chae Jeongwon, 16, points out that many of her peers get plastic surgery as a graduation gift.
"It's a present for senior schoolgirls," Chae wrote in an essay about her country's plastic surgery obsession.
"They say, 'Mommy, if you get my eyes or nose [done], my scores [will be] better than before. Please!'"
The Atlantic article also pointed to several K-pop artists' endorsement deals with plastic surgeons as sending a dangerous message to young, impressionable fans.
"This clinic is where Dr. Jong Phil is," singer G.Na says in a promotional video for Seoul's CINDERELLA Plastic Surgery and Dental Clinic.
"As you are aware he gives a really kind consultation. Come and become more beautiful."
The website for the CINDERELLA Clinic promises to "never suggest you unreasonable surgery."
"CINDERELLA will keep your self-beauty and also bring you suitable and harmonic beauty," reads the company's mission statement.
Yet Professor Hejiin Lee feels the idea of self-transformation is an easy jump for any pop music fan to make, particularly in a country with such a documented proclivity for cosmetic alteration.
"The ability for young generations of Asian Americans to have this dynamic relationship with Asia is on a much larger scale than it was before, due to the Internet," Hejiin said.
"It is pop culture that really introduces the idea of how transformation of your body can lead to success: maybe you too can become a pop star."

Park Jin Young, After I Wore Plastic Pants, I Was Banned From BroadcastingSinger Park Jin Young (JYP) revealed that he had been banned from broadcasting before because of a shocking outfit in the past.
On KBS 2TV "Happy Together 3," Park Jin Young came out and shared the incident of when he was banned from broadcasting.
MC Yoo Jae Suk asked, "Why did you choose such a shocking outfit?" Park Jin Young replied, "Back then, dyed hair, earrings and sunglasses were all restricted by regulations. I think it was a way for me to rebel against that."
He continued, "I wore normal clothes during rehearsal and wore the plastic outfit on stage, shocking everyone. Then I was banned from broadcasting, so I couldn't come out for a while."
During yesterday’s episode of KBS’S “Happy Together,” Park Jin Young confessed that he didn’t get any work done on his face. Initially, the MCs were talking about Min Hyorin’s pretty nose, and the actress revealed that she did not get plastic surgery, firmly stating, “I swear.”
Then, MC Yoo Jae Suk decided to have some fun with the famous singer-producer, pointedly asking, “It’s your nose, right?” Park Jin Young candidly answered, “I really didn’t get it [plastic surgery] done.” When asked if he had work done anywhere else, he repeated, “No, I really didn’t.” The studio burst into laughter when MC Park Mi Sun humorously questioned, “Why didn’t you?” Yoo Jae Suk playfully called her out for the funny, but mean comment, and she clarified, “No, I was just curious. A lot of celebrities do get it done, and there probably were some temptations.”
Unoffended, he shrugged, “I don’t invest in areas where I see no hope,” earning applause from the cast. Park Myung Soo added, “A true businessman. It’s a great quote, and we should live by it.” Shin Bong Sun also pointed out that 2PM’s Nichkhun also had a pretty nose. When asked if he underwent the procedure, Nichkhun smiled as he answered, “No, my mom gave it to me.”
