Neighbors are furious at a girl group member for property damage during building construction.
According to an exclusive report by MoneyS on May 1, a famous girl group member who debuted in 2007 is under fire for construction issues surrounding her building located in Samseong-dong, Gangnam.
Neighbors claim that improper construction methods have caused damages such as cracks and mold in the nearby buildings. The girl group member's mother, who owns 20% of the building, refuted the claim, stating, "We used vibrationless methods in our construction so there are no problems. The cracks (on the surrounding buildings) occurred due to the buildings' old age."
The girl group member and her mother claimed innocence but still offered compensation for the issue. However, the neighbors declined the offer and the two sides are trying to come to a fair solution.
The girl group member and her mother purchased the building in July 2017. They started reconstructing the building in November. It was originally scheduled to be complete on March 30, however, the construction has been halted due to the issue with the neighbors.
A neighbor vented frustration, as s/he told MoneyS, "They have completed ignored the safety of the neighbors by carrying out the construction here. The celebrity has 80% of the shares but she doesn't seem to have any desires to solve the issue, and her mother is avoiding responsibility by putting the blame on the architect."
