While Park Yoo-chun has most spectacularly been in the news for his arrest on criminal narcotics charges other cases against the disgraced actor have remained pending. While Park Yoo-chun was cleared in criminal court in regards to rape charges against his second accuser for an incident in December of 2015 back in June of 2016, charges in civil court have been outstanding and only recently resolved.
Due to delays caused by dysfunction in Park Yoo-chun's personal life, legal team court-ordered mediation was ordered on July 15th. On August 27th the mediation team came back with a deal of approximately one hundred thousand dollars. Because Park Yoo-chun did not contest the deal within two weeks the courts have treated it as accepted as of September 11th.
News about this story has been difficult to come by owing to secrecy agreements in the proceedings. Park Yoo-chun's lack of response to court orders has raised questions as to whether he is planning to pay, prompting speculation that seizure of assets may be necessary to enforce the court's will.
