Sports Chosun; 2010-10-22 10:32

Regarding their appearance time, staff of “Dream High” said, “Bae Yong Joon will make special apperances in about 4 episodes, and Park Jin Young will appear a little more than him. He also said, “The main casts of ‘Dream High’ are the youth. Bae Yong Joon will appear as a supporter, but he will give an impressive performance. These appearances will remain as short remarkable roles not a major work. He will play as a producer who finds stars.”

But, Park Jin Young plans to appear more than him in the drama. Staff said, “Jin Man, who Park Jin Young will play, is a key role in the drama and he is very enthusiastic about his debut performance. We expect a lot from him because he will play a totally different character compared to the other roles on the stage.”

On 12 February 2009, Bae Yong Joon had filed a suit for damages on the ground of infringe on portrait rights (publicity rights) against Oakla Publishing Company (Meguro-ku Tokyo, representative president Masahiro Nagashima) at Tokyo District Court. Oakla Publishing has published and sold the magazine “Bae Yong Joon Japan Visit Special, It’s Koreal July 2008 extra issue” which has used large amount of Bae Yong Joon photos.

Today (21 October 2010), Tokyo District Court has given orders to Oakla Publishing etc. to pay 4.4 million yen for the damages. This order has approved validity of Bae Yong Joon’s claim, we consider this an appropriate order.

In the future, Bae Yong Joon and the company will stand firmly against infringe on Bae Yong Joon’s portrait rights (publicity rights) or other issues that could throw fans to chaos.

Money Today, Reporter Lim Chang Soo : 2010.10.22 00:45

Hallyu star Bae Yong Joon won the copyright infringement lawsuit against the Japanese publishing company.

In the afternoon of October 21st, Nikkan Sports in Japan reported that Bae Yong Joon won the copyright infringement lawsuit and compensation for damages against Okura Publishing Company and their directors. 

On that day, Judge Abe Masayuki of Tokyo district court ordered Okura Publishing Company to pay about four hundred forty thousand yen (about 61,000,000 won) to Bae Yong Joon.

According to Digital Adventure, which administrates Bae Yong Joon’s copyright, “It’s Koreal”, which Okura published, inserted a lot of Bae Yong Joon’s pictures in the July issue without permission.

Digital Adventure said, “It was a reasonable verdict and we’ll handle the copyright infringement cases with a firm attitude in the future as well.”

Wine Artisan who restored the Korean Traditional Wine.

The seventh “Only One Chance” that Bae Yong Joon has met from “The Journey to Discover the Beauty of Korea” was Park Rok Dam of the Korean Traditional Wine Lab.

[Meeting with an actor who loves traditional wine.]

reposted from

For Park Rok Dam who has been working for the traditional wine restoration and popular culture, meeting with Bae Yong Joon who wants to introduce the Korean culture extensively was inevitable. Meeting at the dying artisan Ahn Hwan Ja’s house in Gurye was the beginning.

“I recommended him to brew Dongjeongchoon or Baekhwaju when he wanted to brew the wine. I told him to choose either one of them, but he wanted to brew both. So, I thought he would give up in the middle of the brewing, because even a good student can brew only one wine. But he completed the task without showing any difficulties even though the skin of his hand was peeling while brewing. I changed my mind when I noticed he was continuing the brewing without any concerns.” After that, Bae Yong Joon was fascinated by Park Rok Dam’s wine while he was drinking and comparing regular wine with the Korean Traditional wine like the one written in his book.

His manager said, “Usually, he doesn’t drink alone, but he gulps this wine every day.”, and he once received a call from BYJ (or his manager?) requesting him to send wine to BYJ. Actually we can feel a dignified and deep taste and smell the fragrance of fruits and flowers when we drink this wine. Bae Yong Joon might have felt same. He said that he has been sending wine to BYJ regularly to show his gratitude. He also said that brewing made them travel and talk together once a month 

“It is easy to ignore manners when we get too close, but he is always the same as when we first met, no matter how much time passes. In any case, the teachers and elders come first. I went to his house and he was very nice. He had books, spinning wheel for pottery, and many other things, but I think he is lonely. He receives love from many people, but I think that he can’t do everything that he wants to do.”

He became Bae Yong Joon’s man and saw his enthusiastic love towards culture closely. He judges BYJ with love by saying, “He is a genuine actor, not a star.”

Recently, on the recommendation of Bae Yong Joon, he visited the Korean president’s house several times to show the brewing process. An actor who loves the Korean traditional culture wants to introduce it extensively. And it seems that the wine filled with the spirit of Park Rok Dam won’t take that long to receive loves from many people.

“To share with others is the brewing of peoples’ mind, not for themselves only. We ask ourselves and learn patience while brewing. This is the most important thing in the brewing process in Korea and it is shares the minds of Koreans. Treating, sharing, and drinking together are the culture of Korean wine and its export is the introduction of Korean wine extensively.”
