After pressing charges against a local plastic surgery clinic, Baek Ji Young has won her case.

A rep for the 37-year-old singer confirms to IdolWow! that the Seoul Central District Court ordered the clinic (which can't be named for legal reasons) to pay the "Good Boy" singer $4,320 for illegally using a photo of her on their advertising without her consent.

"Although the posts [on their website] seemed to be reviewing television programs, they are actually part of marketing strategies developed by the clinic," a legal rep for Baek told reporters outside the court.

The continued: "[Our argument was] if the clinic continued to use the photos without consent, the value of Ms. Baek as a model would decline."

Actress Nam Gyu Ri, 27, also successfully sued the same clinic this week. She was awarded $4, 320.

Earlier this month Baek wed 27-year old actor Jung Seok Won at Seoul's Sheraton Walker Hill Hotel.
