Never mind, Lee Byung-heon’s lawsuit revived

Just after the court decided that the civil suit filed against actor Lee Byung-heon was withdrawn due to the plaintiff’s lack of action, they received paperwork in the mail from Lee’s accuser, Ms. Kwon, requesting another trial.

Kwon had returned to Canada last December and has not been back to Korea since, missing two hearings, one on April 22 and another on May 20, leading the the court to close the case on June 21. However, they then found that Kwon’s paperwork had come in that day (the last permissible day), reopening the suit in which she requested compensation of 100 million won for psychological damages incurred by Lee’s false promises and sexual misconduct.

Before this latest development, a source with Lee’s management, BH Entertainment, had stated, “We honor the decision of the court. [Lee] has suffered emotionally, but it seems this burden will be relieved.”

The next trial is scheduled for July 14. If Kwon does not appear, the suit will automatically be withdrawn and the case will be closed.

I am beginning to feel sorry for LBH. But I am glad he didn't settle it out of court as many people thought. I hope he fights it.

omona she didn't
first time I thought the woman is crazy...c'mon the man asked(or maybe not) to marry him..and after he saw how "angelic" she can be....personally I would leave her without remorse...so the process is on what base?

A nightmare indeed.. July 14th is 2 days after LBH's birthday.. the timing could not be more "perfect".. missing the previous two hearing dates before (absence without reason) .. and now granted the July ambush.

Be strong Byunghun-ssi.

this is a woman scorned. she is upset that LBH didn't wife her up and now she is trying to peel off as much skin as she can. He hit it, quit it and now she sees that her potential "gravy train " has left the station, she can't handle it. if she would have tried to file this case in Canada, they would have laughed her out of the court room. and the sexual misconduct charge....lmao, did she not willing sleep with this man?! As my best friend says...gurl go sit down!

well I know nothing either about the case the girl or even the guy, far as i know i never seen him in anything i have watched. but just to try and even things out a bit. The girl lives in Canada I am guessing, so she suppose to stay in Korea and wait for a trail date..and live on what? Or give up more work and fly back to Korea, I read some place that was one of the things she claiming against, loss of work in coming to Korea on his promise in the first place. No one really knows the facts behind what going on, so at lest leave a little fairness and do not trash the girl just cause you may by a fan of the guy. Like everything there always two sides to a story.

I think the girl read all the comments regarding the case (she knows LBY better behind close door compared to his fans), she cannot stand it anymore and come out with the last minute papers.

-but why she didn't appear on the 2 hearing since she's the one who really into the case-is she being threaten?

@9 bjharm:

>>> well I know nothing either about the case the girl or even the guy

DITTO. I am totally with you here.

Unless we are flies on walls in someone's home - often we can ony deduce and 'judge' based on what we read.
or what is 'packaged' for us to read and what we 'think' we know of any star.

Observing them in candid moments outside of their roles can only reveal so much.

At the end of the day ... whatever her agenda ...
LBH (or any other 'mega-bucks investment' star) ... their spin-agencies and backing-behind are probably more powerful than hers.
Especially if fighting in his home-ground ... in Korea.

yeah, we don't know much about what's going on, but we do know that the reason she's suing him is because he promised to marry her if she slept with him. really? the chick's a dumbass. 1), this happens to women all over the world daily but they acknowldge their stupidity and move on with their lives, not dragging it out and making trouble for other ppl. 2), shouldn't you have sex AFTER you're married? if the chick really believed he was gonna marry her, then it shouldn't have mattered if they waited to do it. does that only makes sense to me? and 3) how the hell is 100 million won gonna help her with psychological damages? so money solves all her problems huh? (sorry, that's just me being a bitch). really chick, just corner him, beat the shit out of him, and get on with your life, and not waste ur time with a court hearing that's most likely gonna end unfavorably for you.

@9, I appreciate your offering both sides and believe me, I have looked at both. I guess that is why I am preturbed with the girl. I promise you this is just a case of jilted ex-girlfriend mad because he didn't marry her. She was involved with him intimately, but may not have understood that it wasn't serious. To me, he had a fling with this woman, she wanted something more and he didn't and now she is mad and wants revenge. Apparently, revenge has a price tag of $100 million won.

Oh my goodness this woman angers me so much. Oh, Im so sad, you dumped me - so I guess I'll sue you?!?!?!!!
Even if her claims are 100% true and Lee was as manipulative as she wants him to sound, Lee still wouldn't be any worsethan your average playboy.
Damn. It ridiculous! It's like sueing for a failed grade, or suein your best friend for betraying you and becoming an enemy. Or anything equally ridiculous and childish and stupid.

I love LBH and I know he isn't perfect. He probably talked that good [email protected] in her ear and she fell for it. He should have been honest with her upfront instead of leading her on, but as an adult woman myself, a person only does to you what you allow them to do. Apparently, he must have put on her because she has lost it!!! lmao.

This is what gets me upset. Easy female's who jump into bed with men they barely even know, choose to believe the lies the guy tells them in order to get the girl into bed (which is often all too easy nowadays!) and then after he screws her, he dumps her (which was in intention all along) and then the girl boo-hoos that she was lied to, used and thrown away. Then we're supposed to feel sorry for her?
Please. She created her own mess and then wants sympathy?
She won't get it from me.
Girls, if you don't want your hearts broken, don't jump into bed right away... make him work for it!

You sue someone for violence and rape or other crimes. If you just want justice, you tell your story to the world, you don't go to court. Court = Money and that person better have done something that deserves the sum you're asking. They have to have violated your rights in a way that you weren't able to defend or protect yourself.

Just because some guy did you and promised to marry you, but didn't, doesn't mean he forced anything on you or did something you couldn't have avoided. He's a bastard. So what? It's your own fault for believing him and going along with it. He didn't force the "risk" on you. You accepted it yourself. He doesn't own you money, but he does have to be punished for being a bastard.

So? Tell his fans, tell the media and embarass the guy beyond belief without asking for money. He'll get what he deserves for being a dick, people will know how you suffered, and you'll have your justice.

Going for the cash, hon, only says "greedy gold-digger". Doesn't give you justice and gives him more ground on this arguement so you don't even get to make people see how awful he is.

Which means she just wants the money. Don't know the guy, don't know if he did it or not and if he did, well, he's a bad guy, lots of them out there, but I do know she's just after money. Whether she's telling the truth or not, she's doing it for money.

I am seeing a lot of people commenting that know little of the story. i don't think I know much more. But maybe this will help...

I have seen him in Iris, Good Bad and the Weird and as Storm Shadow in GI Joe. In fact last year when I went to Korea, you couldn't go anywhere with out seeing his face plastered all over the place. Advertising "Come to Korea" posters and commercials featured him proudly and frequently. All this hoopla started soon after so I don't know if he still is used to the same extent. But the fame and money was/is there.

As far as the back story between the two I can only regurgitate what has been said in the media reports. She was a student in Canada and he was there promoting his movie. They started a relationship and she moved to Korea with him. They lived together for a while and then he left and paid for some apartment and expenses for her to live for six-ten months after the separation. She claims she would never have left her home if not for the marriage promises this almost 40yr old man made this 21 year old gymnast. He says it was a relationship that simply ran it's course and he did everything he could for her to be comfortable after the break up.

My opinion, if you are goofy enough to believe a man two times your age is interested in you for a long term relationship and you have yet to see a ring or a wedding dress, I have an some fish from the gulf a mexico that is really fresh to sell you. Don't go for the money, go for the remainder of your dignity and move on.

the girl might have "suffered" in the relationship but didn't she know that dating a celebrity would have its consequences?and just cos he says he'll marry you,doesnt mean you should trust him.i'm sure you have her reasons for not showing up and all, but seriously, i think the matter should have been resolved quietly between the two of them. it doesnt do both of them any good by doing this.now the girl is going to be bashed,and LBH is going to have a bad reputation.

If her argument holds (in Korea), then she should go ahead and sue all the little boys who said they loved her or were going to marry her. Poor little girl, got her heart broken and now wants money.

This is so ridiculous that if her case holds in Korea court of law, I will never respect the Korean judicial system. What a waste of taxpayer money.

Well I still say at least it's over actual feelings of a relationship it seems like (woman scorned/jilted lover/whatever/etc) compared to someone suing his cleaners for millions over losing his pants.

Some people do this loud, others don't. Some will cave while others keep going until the bitter end. Call the reasonings whatever we like, but the courts will get this settled and it'll be an end to it. Just taking a little bit longer because she actually knew how long paperwork would take (and that does require planning ahead of time - not last minute shanighans).

Either way how about we stop the one-sided name dragging? Just like we don't know Lee (anyone else find it slightly funny she's labelled Ms. Lee?) Byung-heon's personal side of the story, we sure as hell don't know her's. Nothing is clear expect the comments are going far from "keepin' it classy" as one says.

I partially agree with everyone who says she's a gold-digger. I always think that about people who sue celebrities for huge amounts of money though, because I'm willing to bet that if he wasn't famous, she wouldn't be suing (and if she still sued, it'd be for less money...)

It sucks that she's drawing this out so much, because that just keeps his name in the mud. Hell, she might not even WANT to sue him anymore (as evidenced by missing her last 2 trials, she may not care that much) but by requesting another appeal, she keeps earning him bad press. It seems to me like she doesn't care enough to go through with the lawsuit but still wants to make sure his name is ruined (if that makes any sense). But no matter whats going on, I'd still say it's pretty gutsy (read: bitchy) to send a request for another trial on the last day possible.

Ha! Let there be justice (which ever way it goes). Personally, with all these charges brought up against Lee Byung-heon, I doubt his intentions were legit in the first place. Whoever this lady is, she's really fighting it. Maybe she's trying to get a rise out of him so he'll remember her well.

@21
"Easy female’s who jump into bed with men they barely even know"
Perhaps you didn't intend it that way, but I find the way you've phrased this somewhat disturbing and sexist.

I'm not quite sure what to think. This latest development seems to indicate she's doing this for the fame and money. I'm not sure if I'm shaking my head at her brazenness or laughing in admiration at her "gutsiness." Distasteful and calculating, yet smart.

LBH is a gorgeous man and a talented actor but that doesn't preclude him from being an ass and I refuse to take sides in an argument when I know next to nothing about the people involved. The actions may seem to speak for themselves but I don't know enough about the context to judge.

This story didn't really interest me until I scrolled down and read through people's comments. Ms. Kwon may be unhinged, deeply hurt, or just an opportunist (perhaps all three) but come on, it's not as if she murdered a baby or something. It's easy to take the oh-so-beautiful LBH's side (his dimples, sigh), but I don't get this level of outrage. It's not a crime against humanity to seek fame, money, or the soothing of hurt pride. In fact, it's so commonplace here (maybe not in Korea?) that it's boring.

Ugh.. you'd think if you were really THAT troubled, you'd show up to court and do everything you could to pursue getting the outcome you want. It's stupid to do what she did.. even waiting to the last day is retarded.

She needs to go all out or go home.

I think it's a BS way to get money... If she was really hurt, she'd be serious about it instead of playing around like this.

well now, she just lost all sympathy for me. i heard she had TONS of pictures of just the house. my cousin saw the uploaded pics and said all her pics were basically of the place itself instead of the two actual people involved together. why so many pics of the place? and then she sues him for him being a bad boyfriend, pretty much, and then doesnt even bother to go to the court hearings.

and then lo and behold, on the last possible day the court gets paperwork. go get a life, girl! cause seriously, at the age she was, she should've had better judgment. she was just as much involved in her screw-ups as he was.

she should sue herself for stupidity while she's suing him, too.

@35 Tai

Warning tealdeer.

I didn't say anything on everyone agreeing or not agreeing to my opinion. All I pointed out was that nobody knows the entire story and people end relationships differently - loud or quietly. My only real attempt at influencing others was my call out on the trash talk. Because it's quite frankly disturbing the names used that are focused on attacking a woman's sexuality.

There's more than one phrase like the one @38 Tildy pointed out that are rather sexist and derogatory terms that are unnessacery. I was only doing a call out of hoping others would instead decide to put down mature, objective, adult responses instead of ones that use hateful words to blindly focus on attacking an unknown woman's sexuality.

Especially when there's more involved in why this court case came around then the fact Lee supposably promised her marriage if she slept with her. I believe work was mentioned, and if she's a gymnast then it also means time being trained and coached lost. We also have no idea how he treated the break-up besides what the media put together. What sounds nice could be very calleous from the break-ee's point of view. Also, as many other's have pointed out, he's a celeb. Far as we know after he did what he believed to make her comfortable in getting back, he could have decided to just cut contact with her. And if he did, being a celeb, that would be it. No chance to respond. This is probably one of the very few ways of tossing her glass of water in his face and getting some kind of response back in return. After all she could have done far worse and made much more money out of this debacle than just chancing it on a court trial she is more than likely going to lose.

Wow. I am truly disturbed by the eagerness with which everyone is trashing the girl. Apparently feminism never happened, by which I don't mean that Ms. K's actions are feminist but that the comments being so easily bandied about here are incredibly misogynistic and definitely sexist.

Folks, none of us know the full story. Let's be a bit more cautious about passing judgment.

Frankly, I'm a bit shocked that I've not yet come across a single expression of empathy, sympathy, or pity for the girl, even in spite of or in fact because of the part she herself may have played in her troubles. I personally feel sorry for her - that she ever met LBH, fell for him, fell for his lines, got her heart or pride wounded, felt wronged enough (justifiably or not) to pursue legal recompense, etc. I can only hope that she grows from this experience.

That said, I do hope this court case causes celebrities - certainly LBH - to think twice before toying so easily with girls/women, especially when such girls/women are groupies who throw themselves very eagerly at their idols.

Funny that no one here ever mentions the shady guys who suddenly popped up, and only then all this suing business started.
And when the girl is back in Canada now, and hasn't shown up for the hearings, why can't I shake off the feeling that she just managed to escape the clutches of those shady guys and will do anything but return to Korea?

But that's probably just me. :)
