It is being reported that the intial distributor of the rumors surrounding Lovelyz’ member Seo Ji Soo has been found and will be called in by the police for questioning.
In a phone interview with Newsen on November 18, a representative of the cyber investigation unit at Seoul Mapo Police Station revealed, “The netizen suspected of being the first distributor of the Seo Ji Soo rumors has been identified. We will have to complete questioning in order to confirm if [he or she] really is the source. At the earliest, we plan to summon them within this week, but nothing is certain yet.”
As a result of the malicious rumors regarding Seo Ji Soo, she was reported to have sought out psychological treatment at a hospital, forcing her to skip out on Lovelyz’ debut showcase and other official promotions. It is said that she is still resting at the hospital to regain her mental stability.
Woollim Entertainment recently refuted all rumors about Seo Ji Soo, explaining, “Those were photos that anyone could have access to if you were an acquaintance. There has not been one photo or evidence of harm. The rumors were spread solely through words and text, as well as easily obtainable photos.”
