Rain files $300k lawsuit against Sports Seoul
Singer Rain has filed a $300,000 USD lawsuit against a media agency that released reports on his gambling controversy.
Rain’s law firm, Hwa Woo, revealed on November 19th that a lawsuit was filed against Sports Seoul for falsely reporting on Rain’s gambling series in Las Vegas, as well as on suspicions of draft dodging. According to his legal representative, they’re seeking $200,000 USD was from Sports Seoul and $100,000 USD from six Sports Seoul journalists, wrapping up to a total of $300,000 USD in compensation for damages.
Rain stated, “Sports Seoul reported on Kim’s one-sided claims without checking for the truth. Their report has been damaging to my reputation.”
Last month, Sports Seoul released a report alleging that Rain was an avid gambler and in substantial debt to a colleague. Further reports from the media outlet also asserted that the international star was embroiled in foreign currency laundering.
After hearing of Rain’s lawsuit, Sports Seoul refuted on the 20th, “Rain facing a lawsuit in America is a fact. We prepared for over a month in order to write up the reports and met with three witnesses that testified to Rain’s gambling.”
