Kwon Sang Woo in legal trouble
Hallyu star, Kwon Sang Woo was served with a lawsuit today, for failing to properly comply with conditions signed on a contract with a publishing company.
According to the Seoul Central Court on the 20th, Code N Associates have claimed that Kwon Sang Woo did not give his fullest assistance, despite signing a contract with them to release a picture book back in 2005. They are asking to be compensated with 30 billion KRW for damages caused to the company.
The company claims that, "Kwon Sang Woo signed a contract with us in August 2005 to release a picture book. But he didn't turn up for the scheduled filming for 3 times and didn't help by not giving us his childhood photos, and personal art drawings, which delayed the publishing timeframe. Adding insult to injury, Kwon Sang Woo then signed a contract with a Japanese company to release a similar themed picture book in 2006, severely devaluing the worth and value of our picture book. Finally, compared to other hallyu stars, the sales of Kwon Sang Woo's picture book was very poor."
Kwon Sang Woo's agency said, "It's pretty ridiculous on their part to say that we did not adhere to the contract terms. We did our very best to arrange for reshoots and we thought everything had already been solved amicably back then. We aren't really sure why they are bringing this matter up again. We will be filing a counter lawsuit."
Poor Kwon Sang Woo. Apart from being happily married to actress Son Tae Young and a baby son, Luke, Kwon Sang Woo's career hasn't been really smooth sailing in recent times. His dramas, Bad Love and Cinderella Man have had poor ratings, his Hollywood dream was extinguished recently and now this lawsuit.
