JYP Entertainment announced its position regarding a lawsuit filed by Nayeon, a member of the group Twice, for ‘debt’ worth 600 million won (alleged default on debt).
On the 19th, JYP Entertainment, the agency, told Star News about Nayeon’s debt lawsuit, “The ruling has already been finalized and concluded, so we have nothing to say as it has nothing to do with the artist’s entertainment activities.”
He continued, “However, in the future, we will take firm legal action against any cases that defame or insult artists through speculative posts.”
According to the legal community on this day, the 13th Civil Affairs Division of the Seoul Eastern District Court (Chief Choi Yong-ho) ruled that Nayeon’s mother’s former lover, Mr. A, filed a lawsuit against Nayeon and Nayeon’s mother for a loan amounting to 600 million won, but that Mr. A lost.
According to the ruling, Mr. A sent 535,908,275 won to Nayeon over a 12-year period from August 2004 to June 2016. It was revealed that Nayeon and Nayeon’s mother paid 115,612,093 won in monthly rent, loans, tuition, and communication fees using a credit card in Mr. A’s name over a six-year period from March 2009 to February 2015.
The court acknowledged that Mr. A had transferred more than 500 million won to Nayeon over 12 years, but judged that there was insufficient evidence to recognize this as a loan.
Mr. A told his acquaintances that Nayeon would pay him back if she debuted as a singer, but the court ruled that this too did not contain accurate evidence.
Mr. A did not appeal after losing in the first trial, so the ruling ended in Nayeon’s victory.
Nayeon debuted as a member of Twice in October 2015.
