Korean pop superstar RAIN has been ordered to pay a Hawaiian concert promoter $8 million (£5.7million) in damages for cancelling a concert in 2007.
A jury on Thursday (19Mar08) found the pop star, his managers and two South Korean promotion companies guilty of breaching contracts linked to a cancelled gig at the Aloha Stadium in Honolulu on June 2007.
A judge ordered the star and his agency, JYP Entertainment Co., to pay a sum of $2.4 million (£1.7million) each, with another $1 million (£700,000) awarded for fraud and an additional $2,286,000 (£1,630,000) for a breached contract.
Rain's lawyer Jon Crocker told reporters, "We're obviously very disappointed with the jury's decision in this matter.
"We maintain our position that both JYP and Rain fulfilled all their obligations with regard to the Hawaii performance. We will continue to vigorously defend them, wherever these promoters bring these baseless lawsuits."
It's not the only suit Rain is facing stemming from cancelling a string of gigs on 2007's Rain's Coming U.S. tour - a Los Angeles promoter is seeking $30 million (£21.4 million) plus punitive damages after the singer called off a show at the city's Staples Center.
