Last Thursday, a federal court in Hawaii ordered the 26-year-old star and his then-agency, JYP Entertainment, to pay more than $8 million (11 billion won) in compensation to Honolulu-based promoter Click Entertainment. They also have to pay lawyers’ fees for Click, with the total compensation reaching $9 million (12 billion won).
The concert, part of his world tour “Rain’s Coming,” was canceled several days before its scheduled date in June 2007. Click President Lee Seung-su testified that he lost about $1.5 million and suffered damage to his reputation and business due to the cancellation. Rain houses his entertainment company Rainy Entertainment in the building, which is run by his father.
After the verdict, Lee said Monday that he will take a step to provisionally seize Rain’s and JYP’s property, including Rain’s building in Cheongdam-dong, which he purchased last year. The building is worth 15 billion won. ($11 Million)Lee said he would also seek authorization to attach all earnings that Rain has made with the William Morris Agency, an entertainment company with which Rain signed a contract last year for his U.S. activities.
