According to an affiliate of IU‘s agency LOEN Entertainment, IU has filed a lawsuit against malicious commenters and netizens on November 17, showing fake photos that netizens have used to spread false rumors about her.
The affiliate stated, “We have collected her fake photos and evidence of people spreading false rumors about her even before her comeback. We have already filed the lawsuit and we plan to give criminal punishment.”
The agency is still continuing to monitor for malicious netizens and plans to show no mercy to them.
Meanwhile, IU has sued netizens before in 2013 and settled the lawsuit by requesting 200 hours of community service from them.
