I wonder if Mr. and Mrs. Komuro will be able to sue the IHA or her parents? Just a thought. The couple is severing ties, for all intents and purposes, while they are being unceremoniously pushed out of Japan.
Personally, I don't understand the fuss about $27,000USD. It's not life-changing money. There is clearly some bad blood between Mrs. Komuro and her ex-boyfriend. Kei offered to pay back the money and his offer was refused, which tells me it's not about the money. It looks like the ex wants to embarrass Kei's mother and throw a monkey wrench into the wedding plans. Once Kei and Mako are married and out of Japan they will have a lot more latitude to resolve the issue than they have at present. Kei could very well present a take-it-or-leave-it-and-shut-up-about-it offer, and if it's refused the ex-boyfriend would lose credibility as far as wishing to collect any money owed him.
