Park Shin-yang Sues for Unpaid Wage

2008/07/04 Source

Actor Park Shin-yang of the "Lovers in Paris" and "War of Money" fame has filed a lawsuit for unpaid wage against the production company of "War of Money".

According to the Seoul District Prosecutors' Office, Park's agency sued the production company for 340 million won or nearly 325 thousand US dollars in unpaid wage. Park claimed that he has not been paid for four episodes of "War of Money". At first, sixteen episodes were planned for this drama, but the stellar ratings topping 30% prompted the production company to extend it for another four episodes. Park solidified his position as a hit maker by perfecting his role as a ruthless loan shark in the drama and won high acclaims from both critics and fans.

Park's agency claimed in the lawsuit that Park's acting fee was set at 620 million won (almost 600,000 dollars) for the extra four episodes, but the production company only paid half of it.
