A Seoul district court on Wednesday ordered actor Park Sang-min to pay W200,000 to his ex-wife for assaulting her (US$1=W1,140).

Park had been indicted for domestic violence and cleared at first intance, but his ex-wife Han Na-rae appealed. Park was charged after verbally abusing Han in October of 2010 and pushing her into a shelf on two occasions.

Park and Han, who used to host an English-language program on EBS, tied the knot in November of 2007 but divorced in December last year.
