Rain Cleared In U.S. Concert Dispute
The star, real name Jung Ji-Hoon, and bosses at his agency JYP Entertainment were sued for $3.95 million by promoters Wellmade STARM last year. Wellmade executives claimed Rain owed them damages because he pulled out of 16 shows on his doomed U.S. tour, while the singer argued the stage had not been properly prepared for the gigs.
He also told the South Korean court how the road show was marred by a copyright infringement claim made against him by an American Beatles tribute band, also called Rain, preventing him from using the stage name in the States.
However, the long-running lawsuit came to an end on Thursday when Judge Bae Kwang-Kuk ruled in favor of the Asian star, blaming poor preparations by the concert's U.S. promoters for the scrapped shows.
