Hyo Jin Lee, Dec. 23, 2015, 9:48 a.m.
Actor Park Si Hoo is appealing the court ruling that he and his past agency Didim531 must compensate company 'K', the company that had planned his music drama and pictorial, 270 million KRW (~$230,000 USD). A rep from Park Si Hoo's agency told Newsen Wednesday, "We recently submitted an appeal [at court]. It is our hope that our wrongs will be righted."
This past December 4, Park Si Hoo and Park Si Hoo's past agency Didim531 were ordered by the courts to compensate 'K' 270 million KRW (~$230,000 USD) for failing to follow through with Park Si Hoo's contracted projects.
At the time, Park Si Hoo's side had said, "The project was launched without any guarantees so even if we're required to pay damages, [the loss] must be offset. The halting of the projects was due to the negligence of 'K'. We will uncover the reason for the denial of our argument after looking at the ruling and decide on how to appeal."
