Lee Min Ho has partly won his lawsuit against a cosmetics company.

He had sued company 'A' as well as the producers of his drama 'Faith' for using his face without permission to promote a face mask. Originally, they were told to pay him 20 million KRW (approximately 17,600 USD) for breaking the contract, but in the appeal, the 80 million KRW was added for damages (approximately 70,500 USD) and the final sentence was to pay Lee Min Ho 100 million KRW (approximately 88,000 USD). As with the first trial, the company was ordered to stop producing and selling products with Lee Min Ho's face.

Everyone knows in lawsuits you have to demand the highest amount no ones actually expecting the amount they asked for.

that's not a partial win, that's a win period. It's just that he wasn't happy with the sentencing.

At least they've been banned from using his face. Now future idols will be able to refer to this case when their images get used without their permission.

They aren't amateurs who didn't know better. They are people who are already aware of the consequences but did it anyways. Hahaha.
