Korea’s Hallyu megastar Bae Yong-joon won a lawsuit over a Japanese publisher who used a picture of him without permission, the Yonhap news agency reported Sunday, quoting Japan’s Jiji Press.

Bae claimed in the suit filed to Tokyo district court that the July 2008 edition of “It’s KOREAL,” a monthly magazine run by Okura Publishing Co., ran photos of him without his authorization. He sought 4.4 million yen (about $54,000) in compensation.

Digital Adventure, which administers his copyrights, said that it filed a suit against Okura immediately after finding the magazine in violation of Bae’s rights.

He had received 30 million won ($27,000) compensation in September, after winning a case against a Korean travel agency which had uploaded his images on its website without his permission.
