South Korean Singer Rain Settles Concert Dispute
South Korean singer Rain has been handed victory in a breach of contract legal dispute after a judge ruled he was not responsible for causing the cancellation of his 2006-2007 U.S. tour. The star, real name Jeong Ji-Hoon, and bosses at his agency JYP Entertainment were sued for $3.95 million by promoters Wellmade Starm in 2009.
Wellmade executives claimed Rain owed them damages because he pulled out of 16 shows on his doomed U.S. tour, while the singer argued the stage had not been properly prepared for the gigs. He also told the South Korean court how the roadshow was marred by a copyright infringement claim made against him by an American The Beatles tribute band, also called Rain, preventing him from using the stage name in the States.
However, the longrunning lawsuit came to an end on Thursday, January 28 when Judge Bae Kwang-Kuk ruled in favor of the Asian star, blaming poor preparations by the concert's U.S. promoters for the scrapped shows.
