Kim Sun Ah‘s legal troubles have been settled. She’s won the lawsuit that was brought against her by the film production company Yoon and Joon for breach of contract on the film Thursday’s Child. Perhaps now she’ll finally be able to relax instead of worrying over legal tangles that have hampered her post-Samsoon career.
The production company blamed Kim Sun Ah for walking out on production a year ago and held her liable for their losses of more than 2.3 billion won. They sued the actress for breaching her contract and recompensation of her salary (of which she returned 400 million won in June), demanding the rest of the 1 billion won (nearly $1.1 million). However, the ruling found that Kim Sun Ah bore no responsibility for the shutdown of the movie.
The judge said, “The plaintiff is responsible for the insufficient preparation that caused the production’s start to be delayed on the film Ms. Kim was hired to appear in. After the film’s progress was halted in October 2006, a new director was not brought in, and the film’s screenplay remained unfinished. It was not possible for the defendant to continue filming, or to comply in that situation.”
