Duo Trouble Maker’s (Jang Hyun Seung and HyunA) agency Cube Entertainment recently requested for an investigation of those who had spread false rumors on the internet about the two members Hyun Seung and HyunA.
According to their attorney, on January 16, Cube Entertainment submitted a bill of indictment on the grounds of the Act on Promotion of Information and Communications Network Utilization for the person(s) who spread false and unsubstantiated information on the Trouble Maker duo resulting in defamation.
Previously, on January 10, on Twitter, Facebook, and other social networking sites, rumors concerning Hyun Seung and HyunA quickly spread, saying that HyunA was pregnant among other unfounded claims. After this, Cube Entertainment released an official statement saying they would take tough legal action.
The bill of indictment states, “Rumors created on an application called ‘I Am a Reporter’ have been spreading, made to look like an official report. The false information has led to a great amount of harm not only for the concerned party of Jang Hyun Seung and HyunA, but their families and agency, as well,” and requests for strict punishment if the perpetrator is found guilty following careful investigation.
The developer of the app released a statement apologizing for its involvement in these rumors, but denied starting them.
On January 13, the agency had previously requested an investigation of the matters to the Gangnam Police Cyber Investigation Team. With firm action taken once again by Cube Entertainment, it looks like active investigation on the one to first spread the rumors will be starting.
Stay tuned for more updates.
