    Beauty doctor Kim Young-jae, who was convicted of providing clandestine treatments to ex-President Park Geun-hye, has decided not to appeal against his three-year suspended sentence and W3 million fine (US$1=W1,119).

    Another doctor, Kim Sang-man, who was formerly employed by the luxury Chaum clinic in Gangnam and prescribed rejuvenating injections for Park under a soap-opera alias from 2011 to 2014, also gave up taking the case to an appeal court. He was fined W10 million.

    But Kim Young-jae's wife Park Chae-yoon, who was convicted of bribing ex-Park aide An Chong-bum in connection with her medical supplies business, is appealing her one-year jail sentence.

    And so is Lee Im-soon, another of Park's quacks and now a professor at Sunchunhyang University, who was given a two-year suspended sentence for perjury. She denied introducing Kim Young-jae and his wife to Suh Chang-suk, Park's official physician at Cheong Wa Dae.
