Singer Kim Chang Ryul lost to a food company lawsuit in which he had advertised with the catch phrase "Like Chang Ryul."  


According to Seoul's Judge Lee, "Kim Chang Ryul's food company known as Company A stated in the lawsuit that, 'It's difficult to say that Kim Chang Ryul's image had been defamed due to the way the food company marketed the product.'"


In 2009, Company A decided to market with Kim Chang Ryul and distributed products to convenience stores.  


In January 2015, Kim Chang Ryul filed a complaint following numerous SNS posts and news reports regarding the company's false advertisement. There was actually very little content in the food packaging compared to the written price.


Hearing this, Company A stated that it was unfair to make such a comparison.

The judge ruled, "It is true that Company A's products contained less content compared to other food labels; however, it was not to an extensive degree."


Judge Lee also stated that "Kim's complaint is most likely an overstatement. He is also well known to be a trouble maker in the entertainment industry."

    "Kim's complaint is most likely an overstatement. He is also well known to be a trouble maker in the entertainment industry." = "I don't like you so all your statements are denied."

    That last statement though - the judge sounds like a jerk.

    So the judge acknowledged that there was false advertising but still found against the person it affects just because of his reputation? Proof yet again how unethical the court system is there.
