On April 11th, it was reported that a businessman of a local food company has accused actress Lee Young Ae of defamation, and has also accused an agency that has a copyright deal with the actress.
The dispute began in 2011 when the food company used a photo of Lee from the MBC drama, “Dae Jang Geum” for an advertisement.
During this time, Lee stated that the businessman had never signed a copyright deal, and was considering legal action.
No lawsuit has been filed by the actress, but the suit that the businessman filed says that the actress had hurt his company’s brand.
Legal representatives of Lee stated that the agency had forged Lee’s seal and had illegally signed a contract with the food company. They said yesterday that they will begin to collect evidence and review the decision whether or not to take legal action against the company or the agency.
