Singer IU‘s representatives revealed that they will be taking legal action against the person behind maliciously edited photos of her that are circulating online.
On November 1, IU’s management company Loen Entertainment said, “We have screen captures of the post, and we are investigating the social media accounts who are sharing the post and the original poster.”
The post in question was shared on Facebook on October 31 with the caption, “IU’s shocking concept.”
In the photos, IU’s legs have been edited to look like she is only wearing black underwear and stockings. The original photos taken at her seventh debut anniversary fan meet on September 20 show her wearing a top and high-waisted shorts.
At this, IU’s fans demanded that those spreading the photos be punished for their attempt to negatively affect IU’s image, and it has been reported that IU’s agency is looking into taking legal action.
