Nayeon of TWICE Wins Lawsuit Against Ex-Lover of Her Mother
In a recent legal battle, Nayeon, a member of the popular K-pop group TWICE, emerged victorious as the Seoul Eastern District Court ruled in her favor. The lawsuit was filed by Nayeon's mother's ex-lover, who claimed to have lent them a significant amount of money. However, the court found insufficient evidence to support this claim.
Insufficient Evidence for a Loan
The court acknowledged that the ex-lover, referred to as A, had transferred over 500 million won to Nayeon and her mother over a span of 12 years. However, it ultimately deemed the evidence presented as inadequate to classify the transactions as a loan.
According to the court's ruling, A transferred a total of 535,908,275 won to Nayeon between August 2004 and June 2016. Additionally, Nayeon and her mother were found to have made payments totaling 115,612,093 won using a credit card under A's name from March 2009 to February 2015. It is worth noting that Nayeon debuted as a member of TWICE in October 2015.
A's Lawsuit and Testimonies
A filed the lawsuit against Nayeon and her mother in January of last year. During the trial, A claimed that he had lent the money to cover their living expenses at the request of Nayeon's mother. He alleged that Nayeon, who was a trainee at the time, had promised to repay the loan after her debut as a singer but failed to do so. Two acquaintances of A appeared in court as witnesses, supporting his claims.
Court's Decision and Reasoning
However, the court dismissed A's arguments, stating that based on the frequency, period, amount, and circumstances of the transactions, it was difficult to conclude that there was an agreement between A and Nayeon to repay the money. The judge further noted that since A and Nayeon's mother were in a romantic relationship at the time, it could not be considered a loan. The court believed that the funds were used for general living expenses, including rent, telecommunications, loans, and tuition.
The judge also highlighted that A's claims of "expectations" for Nayeon to repay the money after her debut made it challenging to view all the payments as loans. Additionally, the witnesses' statements were based on information provided by A rather than direct communication with Nayeon or her side of the story.
This ruling brings relief to Nayeon and her family, as they can now put this legal dispute behind them. As Nayeon continues to pursue her successful career as a member of TWICE, she can focus on her music and fans without the burden of financial obligations.
