Seo Taiji Denies Involvement in Recent Lawsuit
Seo Taiji (Jung Hyun Chul, 39) spoke out on the recent accusations that he hadn’t paid transit fees for a real estate deal gone sour.
Seo Taiji was recently sued by real estate transit dealer Kim for not paying 72.9 million won in transit fees.
Kim filed charges against Seo Taiji and a Mr. Byun for the money, saying, ‘Mr. Byun told me he was looking for a building in which he could operate a hospital, so I gave him information on a building owned by Seo Taiji. I worked hard to make both sides sign the contract, but Mr. Byun and a Mr. Choi, who was the manager of Seo Taiji’s building, signed a contract without me’.
Seo Taiji Company told enews on September 8 that, “Seo Taiji doesn’t know anything about the lease contract” and that “because it’s an incident which occurred due to errors on the workers’ parts, the lawsuit will involve only those workers in question.”
Officials close to Seo Taiji said, “Seo Taiji was not directly involved with this incident, but we are sorry to his fans for bringing them this bad news.”
Seo Taiji made headlines a few months ago when he was brought to court on issues of alimony and a separation of property issue with his ex-wife, television actress E.Jiah.
