Jang Woo Hyuk has been sued for not returning the security deposit to the company who previously leased his building, and in response, he and his agency have fired back.
On the 27th, the educational consulting business 'A' filed a lawsuit against Jang Woo Hyuk demanding their 200 million KRW (approximately 184,000 USD) rental deposit back. 'A' said, "In 2008, we signed a contract with Mr. Jang to rent the 2nd-5th floor of the Gangnam Shinsadong building that he owns with a 200 million KRW security deposit and a monthly rental fee of 12.5 million KRW (approximately 11,500 USD). We gave him back the property on February 1st, when our lease ended."
They explained, "Before we returned it, we used 37 million KRW (approximately 34,000 USD) to return everything to its original state. But even then, Mr. Jang required that we return everything back to its original state, and refused to return our security deposit. You cannot request a return to the original state from property damage that occurred from everyday use."
Jang Woo Hyuk and his reps responded, "From the 2nd to the 5th floor, there is a lot of damage to the floor and the walls. They should have put it back to its original state, but they kept saying that the damages came from natural use and did not fix them. 'A' only made small repairs such as replacing the door handle, but they didn't repair anything more costly such as the floor. It would cost us a lot of money to fix it. We tried to find a middle ground through talking, but we're in a difficult position because they took it to court. We're going to do our best to talk with them, but if that does not work, we will be taking legal measures as well."
