Girl group Lovelyz‘s agency Woollim Entertainment has released an official press release regarding their latest case surrounding the netizens who spread rumors about Lovelyz member Seo Ji Soo.
In the announcement made on October 5, the idol star’s agency stated that they have filed defamation suits against three people who spread false rumors regarding Seo Ji Soo online.
The agency’s legal representative said, “The accused ‘A,’ who was charged a fine for spreading the rumors prior to the girl group’s debut, came to Woollim to ask for a settlement. However, in the process of the settlement, ‘A’ plotted with other defendants ‘B’ and ‘C’ to reclaim the rumors that were proven false in court.
