Management SOOP Shares Update On Legal Action Against Malicious Comments

Management SOOP has released an official statement regarding the status of their legal action against those who have written malicious and defamatory posts about its artists.

The following is the full statement from Management SOOP:

We hereby make a notice.

Our agency determined that thoughtless and malicious comments and actions taken by malicious commenters towards our agency’s actors have reached a level that cannot be overlooked. In order to protect our actors, we are currently working with the law firm Jipyong to take legal action.

First, in the case of Gong Hyo Jin, we are getting ready to file a complaint after gathering data and evidence. In the case of Suzy, we have already filed a complaint based on the gathered evidence through the law firm.

Here are the cases for which legal action has been completed.

Last year, we filed a complaint against a malicious commenter who harassed Gong Yoo for a long time, and the malicious commenter was sentenced with a fine in April. In the case of Jung Yu Mi, we filed a complaint against the person who posted the malicious rumors, people who spread the rumors, and people who wrote malicious comments. People including the person who posted the rumors were recently sentenced with fines.

We will continue to monitor malicious comments that are made towards all our actors in addition to those who have been mentioned. If our agency discovers that slanderous actions such as posting groundless rumors, insults, and defamation have been made towards our artists, we will gather evidence and continue to take legal action regularly.

In addition, we strongly state that we will not make any settlements or show lenience regarding the above mentioned actions. Thank you.

알려드립니다. 당사는 소속 배우들을 향한 무분별한 악플 및 악플러의 행위가 더이상 묵과할 수 없는 수준에 이르렀다고 판단하였고, 소속 배우들을 보호하고자 법무법인(유) 지평을 통해 법적 대응을 진행하고 있습니다. 먼저 공효진씨의 경우, 증거 자료를 취합하여 고소 준비 중에 있으며, 수지씨의 경우, 수집된 증거 자료를 바탕으로 법무법인을 통해 고소장을 접수했습니다. 법적 대응 완료 건에 대해서 알려드립니다. 지난해 공유씨를 오랜 기간 동안 괴롭혀왔던 악플러를 고소했고, 그 악플러는 지난 4월 벌금형을 선고받았습니다. 정유미씨의 경우 악성 루머 게시자 및 유포자, 악플러를 고소했고, 게시자 등이 최근 벌금형을 선고 받았습니다. 또한 언급된 배우 이외에도 소속 배우들의 악플 모니터링은 지속적으로 진행될 것입니다. 당사는 배우들을 향한 허위사실 게재, 모욕, 명예훼손 등 악의적인 비방 행위가 발견 됐을 경우, 증거 자료 확보 후 정기적으로 법적 대응을 이어갈 것입니다. 아울러 이 모든 행위에 대해서는 협의나 선처는 절대 없음을 강력하게 말씀드립니다. 감사합니다.
