Violinist Paik Jin-hee has applied for legal guardianship of her mother, actress Yun Jung-hee (77), who lives in Paris with dementia.
A French court last year appointed Paik her mother's legal guardian, sparking an unsightly battle with Yun's siblings.
Paik, who is Yun's daughter with famous pianist Paik Kun-woo, made the application at the Seoul Family Court in October of last year, music industry sources say.
Recently, the actress' siblings posted an anonymous petition on the Cheong Wa Dae website seeking help for the revered actress, who they claim is being treated "like a prisoner."
Paik Kun-woo's agent refuted the claim, saying Yun is well cared-for and lives in the same building as her daughter.
