Singer Baek Ji Young has won the second lawsuit against a plastic surgery clinic for using her photograph without her permission to advertise plastic surgery services.
The Seoul Central District Court ordered the surgeon to pay Baek Ji Young $3,600 for using photographs of her in a bikini to promote his liposuction services. The photos were taken without permission from her online shopping site. Originally, the singer had asked for ten times the amount of the financial award, but the court lowered the damages to $3,600.
Last month, the singer, together with actress Nam Gyuri, won partial damages in a similar case. The Seoul Central District Court awarded each about $4,000 in damages.
