Hello. This is Woollim Entertainment.
Our agency decided back in December 28 to begin taking legal actions against online commenters who spread false rumors, leave malicious comments, sexually harass, defame, or cause any other harm to our artists.
We’ve collected evidences by monitoring the web and receiving information from the fans. We took those evidences of false rumors and defamation posts to sue malicious commenters. They have been sentenced to pay a fine.
We will not stop here. We will continue to monitor and collect evidences to protect our artists to the very best of our capabilities. We will take strict legal measures whenever we find evidence of malicious posts.
Finally, we would like to emphasize that we will not be settling or taking things lightly with anyone who publishes or spreads the said posts indicated above.
