Go Jun Hee Files Legal Complaints Against Malicious Commenters Who Spread Rumors Linking Her To Seungri’s Controversy
On May 4, Oh Kims, the law firm serving as Go Jun Hee’s legal representative, announced that the actress had filed a complaint against 12 malicious commenters for defamation of character and for violating the Information and Communications Network Act.
A representative of Oh Kims stated, “This weekend, we completed submitting the first round of complaints against some netizens. Through continuous monitoring, we will continue to take civil and criminal legal action without leniency in the future as well.”
The representative continued, “Due to the groundless rumors circulated maliciously by such individuals, many of the contracts that Go Jun Hee has been working on have been overturned, so there has been a great deal of damage. A person’s everyday life should not be brutally trampled by the thoughtless, malicious act of indiscriminately spreading false information by malicious commenters hiding behind online anonymity.”
Go Jun Hee was previously swept up in rumors that she was the actress named in Seungri’s group chat when the chatroom participants were discussing girls to invite to entertain a foreign investor visiting Korea. The rumors grew when she decided to step down from KBS 2TV’s upcoming drama “Perfume.” However, Go Jun Hee’s agency firmly denied the rumors at the time and said, “None of the rumors are true.”
