'Ong Bak' star faces contract breach suit

A South Korean woman has filed a civil lawsuit against top action actor Thatchakorn Yirum, alias Ja Phanom, accusing him of breaching a loan contract.

In the lawsuit lodged yesterday by Park Aun-hee, through her Thai lawyer, she said Mr Thatchakorn had signed a contract to borrow a million baht from her on July 4 last year.

Mr Thatchakorn promised to repay the loan after the movie Ong Bak 2 was produced and screened. But he failed to make payments after the film was released, she alleged.

She asked the Civil Court to order Mr Thatchakorn to repay the loan plus interest of 7.5%. A hearing is scheduled for Jan 25 to see if they can reach an out-of-court settlement.

Mr Thanakorn said he and Ms Park were business partners who bought films for distribution.

The dispute was a complicated matter, he said but declined to elaborate.
