“The repayment of 4.9 billion [KRW] to collect debt” VS Strong response at “defamation·false accusation·fraud lawsuit”
Hallyu star ‘JYJ’ member Kim Junsu(28) has been having a puzzling time in getting swept/caught up in various lawsuits. Following that he’s embroiled in a legal dispute in regards to his Jeju-do’s Toscana Hotel last year, he is currently getting sued for fraud. But Kim-ssi’s side had actively opposed on this and came forward to give notice of his strong response.
The hotel’s side: “The fact that we borrowed money from the construction companies isn’t true”
The construction companies are suing by using one out two promissory notes, the one that is advantageous to them.
The root of the whole incident is that Toscana Hotel is owned by Kim Junsu. Toscana Hotel opened its doors in Gangjeong-dong, Jeju-do in September last year, where Kim-ssi made an investment of about 28.5 billion KRW. This hotel was constructed with 61 rooms and 4 pool villas with a scale of 1 level below-ground and 4 levels above-ground, on an area of 21,026㎡.
Kim-ssi’s own investment is 13.5 billion KRW, out of the 28.5 billion KRW cost for the hotel’s construction. The remaining 15 billion KRW was obtained through loans.

with two construction companies last year
CJ Construction and Cheonji Consolidated Construction –who were involved in the hotel’s construction at the time– accused Kim-ssi with the suspicion of fraud at this time. The two construction companies had applied for an order for a loan payment against Kim Junsu last year already. At the time, the Jeju District Court’s 3rd Civil department had accepted the two construction companies’ application for an order for a loan payment from Kim-ssi.
The Department of Justice ordered that Kim-ssi pay for the 4.9 billion KRW loan of about 3.03 billion KRW and 1.87 billion KRW each to these construction companies. At the same time, the property –like the hotel owned by Kim-ssi– became known to be seized provisionally.
However, Kim-ssi’s side had submitted an immediate statement of objection at the time. The law firm for Kim-ssi’s side revealed the promissory note specified at the time that: “The promissory note is an accounting document and is not the actual reimbursement amount,” and denied the two construction companies’ claim. Also, they refuted, “The construction companies embezzled the cost of the materials as the inflation of the construction expenses, if anything”. Currently the Jeju District Court’s order for payment is a situation that’s cancelled with Kim-ssi’s side’s objection.

Accusation against Kim-ssi to avoid
JYJ’s Kim Junsu has filed a case with the police against ‘C’ Construction company (T/N: hereby Cheonji Construction) for defamation and filing a fraudulent lawsuit.
Kim Junsu’s legal representative, lawyer Jung Heewon stated on the 13th, “Regarding Jeju Island’s Cheonji Construction company’s defamation and filing a fraudulent lawsuit in December, we have filed a libel case against them with the Gangnam Police Station.”
Lawyer Jung Heewon stated, “The provisional seizure of property requested by Cheonji Construction and applied by the Jeju District Court has been removed through our legal response. Following the formal objected raised against the provisional seizure, they have filed a lawsuit with the exact same argument and evidence, and as filed a case for fraud [against us]. Our stance is that this isn’t even worth rebutting, and it is because the promissory note has already been revealed to be invalid.”
Jung said, “Not only is there absolutely no truth in their argument, but they have used low tactics like defamation to damage the reputation of a Hallyu star, and have foul intentions to obtain benefits. We cannot overlook this anymore” and “Fraud is established when A deceives B and cheats money out of B, but Kim Junsu has never written a promissory note for the construction company nor met their representatives before. There is absolutely no legal grounds for them to file a lawsuit for fraud. The construction company is intentionally damaging the reputation of Hallyu star Kim Junsu, and is using the media in their deceit.”

The press conference of ‘SPY’ –which is the new Friday mini-series to be shown first in 2015 on KBS– was held at the Ritz-Carlton Seoul hotel in Gangnam-gu, Seoul on January 6.
In particular the drama this time has received a lot of interest from viewers for having been the topic with an unprecedented arrangement where it will compile 2 parts in a row, as the first runner for KBS’ Friday mini-series.
On this day Kim Min Jae gave his thoughts on meeting Kim Jaejoong in ‘SPY’ this time, following having acted with Park Yoochun in his previous work, ‘Three Days’.
Kim Min Jae said, “I found out that he says what he pleases even in his surroundings,” and triggered laughter by saying, “He told me that there is one person left from JYJ now and I’ll get to [meet that member] when I do a musical.”
Continuing Kim Min Jae said, “He’s different from he appears to be, is easygoing and a nice dongsaeng,” and, “There is not even a hint of feeling inconvenience when we have to work. Now I just have to meet Kim Junsu.”
[JYJ3 note: Kim Min Jae is actually a musical actor too; even before he acted with Yoochun.]
