      Actress Hwang Soo-jung raised a law suit against NHN. Corp., the company that runs the portal site Naver (, on Friday. Hwang insisted, "The site violated my honor by leaving pictures of me in a prison uniform and parody cartoons of me taking drugs." She is sueing the firm for W100 million.

      The actress was once arrested for taking drugs.

      Park Jae-youn, Hwang's lawyer for the case, said Hwang had asked countless times that photographs with her in prison attire be erased, along with other pictures featuring her with her hands tied with a rope and parody pictures with her injecting methamphetamines. NHN left the material up, however, for everyone to see, damaging Hwang's honor, her lawyer explained.

      Hwang already brought a civil suit against the nation and the prison officer who circulated the prison photographs. Recently, the Supreme Court announced that the actress should receive W2.5 million in damages.
