“Vagabond” veteran actor Baek Yoon Sik sued by his younger ex-girlfriend, his 2 sons face physical assault allegations
The lawsuit between Baek Yoon Sik and his 30 years younger ex-girlfriend is drawing attention again.
On March 2, according to sources from Korean media outlets, veteran actor Baek Yoon Sik was sued by his 30 years younger ex-girlfriend K. Accordingly, K filed a lawsuit against the 74-year-old actor for forging documents. Specifically, K alleged that Baek Yoon Sik forged a 2014 lawsuit settlement agreement without her consent. The clause that says “revealing anything to the public is prohibited” was claimed to be written by Baek Yoon Sik himself in the agreement.
Currently, the police have received the lawsuit, but have yet to conduct an investigation. When the media called for an interview, Baek Yoon Sik’s agency only issued a brief response: “We have nothing to say”.
