Source: Korea Joongang DailyMin Hyo-lyn has won a law suit against a cosmetic surgeon who used her name in an advertisement to draw business.The court sided with Min and slapped a 3 million won ($2,724) fine on the surgeon after Min claimed that the doctor’s use of her name “resulted in financial losses‘ for the star.Originally Min asked for 8 million won as compensation, but the court didn’t exactly see eye-to-eye with Min’s reasoning.“Although we don’t agree that she incurred losses from the incident,‘ said the court, “We admit that by having her name in the ad, the public came to believe that the actress had work done and thus she suffered from stress.‘Thus the penalty was deemed appropriate for the psychological damage done.The mentioned ad surfaced in June last year and said that “You too can have a classy looking nose like Min Hyo-lyn.‘Check out pictures of other Korean stars who are rumoured to have had plastic surgery.
