Comedian and actor Kwak Hyeon-hwa won some damages lawsuit against film director Lee Soo-seong.
In a lawsuit against the director Lee Soo-sung, director Kwak Hyun-hwa's movie ``House with a Good View,'' against the director, a ruling was issued to compensate 20 million won.
Kwak Hyeon-hwa has insisted that he agreed to expose his back when he signed a contract to appear in'House with a Good View' in 2014, but expressed his intention that he could not expose the entire chest. However, this request was not specified in the contract.
At the time of filming, director Lee Soo-sung convinced him that the upper body exposure was a necessary part of the film flow, and that if he asked to remove it from editing after filming, he would. Afterwards, Kwak Hyeon-hwa refused to disclose the exposed scene, but the film was distributed for a fee with the exposure of Kwak Hyeon-hwa's chest.
In response, Kwak Hyun-hwa filed a lawsuit claiming 100 million won, including 30 million won for property damage and 70 million won for alimony due to mental suffering, claiming that his personal rights were violated by revealing the exposure scene without permission.
On this day, the court judged that director Lee Soo-seong had infringed on Kwak Hyun-hwa's moral rights and ruled in some compensation. Kwak Hyeon-hwa's property damage was not recognized.
In connection with this case, director Lee Soo-seong was prosecuted for violating the Special Act on the Punishment of Sexual Violence Crimes (shooting using cameras, etc.), but was convicted in 2018 by the Supreme Court.
Meanwhile, Kwak Hyeon-hwa received attention as a comedian from the Department of Mathematics at Ewha Womans University. He was the first celebrity to write a math book and became a hot topic.
