According to law firm Barun dealing with the case said, a total of 53 passengers - 27 Koreans and 25 Chinese - filed suits against Asiana Airlines in July of last year. They claimed 34.2 billion won in total - ranging from 55 million won to 2.7 billion won - in compensation.
In July of 2013, Asian's Boeing 777-220 airplane clashed with breakwater in front of runway of San Francisco International Airport, leaving three Chinese passengers dead and 180 people injured out of total 307 passengers and crews.
The National Transportation Safety Board said in June of 2014 the main culprit of the accident is the pilot's fault, alongside the complexity of the plane's auto throttle and automatic pilot system.
