Han Sung-joo sued for assaulting scandal informer

23 Dec – After her alleged sex video and abortion scandal were leaked on the internet, MC and news anchor Han Sung-joo is reportedly facing a lawsuit from former acquaintance (to be known as 'A') for locking him in a room and assaulting him for eight hours.

According to Allkpop website, on 20 December, 'A' filed a lawsuit with the Seoul Central District Court claiming that in March, Han Sung-joo, her brother, mother, and two other men had locked him in a room and assaulted him for eight hours.

On 22 December, his lawyer expressed, "After being assaulted for eight hours, 'A' was too afraid of what they would do to him to immediately report it to the police. He will be requesting an extra USD 500,000 to compensate for the pain and mental trauma he endured."

Han Sung-joo's lawyers responded to the claims on 22 December by stating, "We feel that it's rather fortunate that he filed a lawsuit because that means he will have to return to Korea to stand in court, which will give us an opportunity to charge him for his own wrongdoings. We have ample evidence to claim our innocence, and what he claims isn't the truth at all. He claims that he was locked and assaulted in a room, but it was actually he that voluntarily entered."

This is the latest development in the Han Sung-joo vs. 'A' case, where the said person released a sex tape of Han Sung Joo along with numerous accusations of assault and humiliation against her.

Han Sung-joo was Miss Korea 1995 and a news anchor who recently hit the internet buzz with her leaked documents (claimed to be her abortion report) and video of her sex scandals. The motive as claimed was to seek for judgement and revenge. The leaked photos include abortion documents (from the medical department), a passport with an entry to Hong Kong (the place where the abortion takes place) and an alleged sex tape.

    2015 Acura TLX blends two sedans into one alphabet soup

    Nearly three decades have passed since Honda gave us the car we didn’t know we wanted: a fancified Accord called the Legend, which Honda sold under a newly created luxury brand called Acura. Acura, along with the Lexus and Infiniti brands that followed, proceeded to turn the luxury market on its nose. But since then, everyone from Hyundai to Bentley has stepped up its luxury game while Acura got a bit lost in ubiquity with a cadre of similar-looking products, all with confusing alphabet soup names like ILX, TSX, TL and RLX.

    2015 Dodge Charger goes under the knife

    Over the past decade, Chrysler's rear-wheel-drive sedans have managed to survive a bankruptcy and three different corporate overlords. Thanks to the original stoutness of the Mercedes-assisted chassis, and the periodic updates that keep them from seeming like 21st-century versions of the Ford Crown Victoria, the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger combo still draw in fans. Today, Dodge revealed yet another redesign for the 2015 Charger — and for an old car, it's quite the change.

    By Narae Kim JINDO South Korea (Reuters) - More than 280 people, many of them students from the same high school, were missing after a ferry capsized off South Korea on Wednesday, in what could be the country's biggest maritime disaster in over 20 years. It was not immediately clear why the Sewol ferry listed heavily on to its side and capsized in apparently calm conditions off South Korea's southwest coast, but some survivors spoke of a loud noise prior to the disaster.
