04.09.11 [Allkpop] Rain Sues Drama Production Company For Unpaid Wages From “Fugitive”

On April 8th, Rain reportedly filed a lawsuit against drama production company ‘D‘ for unpaid wages from his stint with KBS’s “Fugitive: Plan B“. The star alleges that the company owes him $396,000 USD for his work with the drama.

“My contract with the production company specifically stated that I was to receive $50,000 USD per episode for a total of 16 episodes and get paid the tax-added value later,” said Rain. “But I’ve only been paid my contract fee – $320,000 USD – and a second payment of the same amount. I was not paid the remaining $160,000 USD, as well as payments for the extra four episodes I appeared in, rounding out the total to $396,000 USD.”

Rain continued, “I was asked to appear for the extra episodes without getting paid first, but I didn’t want to disappoint the viewers by rejecting the offer. I agreed to the extra episodes and finished the finale. The very next day, I even received proof of payment from the company, but they did not keep their promise.”

Last December, co-star Lee Na Young also filed a lawsuit against the production company for not getting paid for her appearance in the first episode.

    This kind of issue/thing has been going on with Korea’s entertainment industry. They should pay the actors down to the smallest staff. If they’re not paying the lead actors how much more staff behind the camera? Tsk tsk tsk

    I’m so tired of hearing these things happening over and over. After getting screwed over before, why not take preventive measures and get the money up front…trust no one in business,even the ones who are supposed to watch your back. If they want him bad enough they will honor his request.Maybe it’s time to get out of the shadiness of Korean entertainment…and into the shadiness of Hollywood.haha
