MAMAMOO’s Agency To Take Strong Legal Action Against Malicious Commenters
MAMAMOO’s agency RBW has issued a stern warning to malicious commenters.
The agency released their official statement on August 31 through MAMAMOO’s official fancafe. The post read, “We write this to notify you that we will be taking strong legal action against those behind malicious comments and posts that contain malicious attacks, sexual harassment, spreading of false information, personal attacks, and defamation regarding our artists MAMAMOO (Solar, Moonbyul, Wheein, Hwasa).
“Our artists have been suffering for a long time due to repeated malicious posts and comments by certain netizens who have malicious intent, and we have come to the decision that we must take action as it has reached a very serious point.
“In order to protect the basic human rights of MAMAMOO, we will be taking strong legal action against those who have made malicious posts and comments, as well as against those who have created defamatory posts to spread false information. We have strengthened our legal team and hired Kim Chang & Lee as our legal representatives to move ahead with the case.
“The act of using an information network system to spread false information with the purpose of defaming another person is subject to section 70, clause 2 of the Information Communications Network Act. These acts are a serious offense that can result in a maximum of seven years in prison or 50 million won (approximately $44,790) in fines.
“We will take legal action against those malicious netizens who have persistently attacked the members of MAMAMOO, and after we have completed collecting the necessary evidence in September, we will work with our legal representatives to take strong legal action against those who are responsible, with no leniency given to them.
Furthermore, we plan to continue to take all possible legal action against those who continue to commit acts of defamation and other cases in the future. The reports and evidence fans have been sending in have been a great help to building our case, so we ask that fans continue to send in any information possible.”
