Here is the agency’s full statement:
This is Hook Entertainment.
We can no longer ignore the indiscriminate, malicious comments about our agency artist Lee Seung Gi.
On July 16, 2019, we revealed that should these actions continue, we would be taking legal action. However, our artist and his fans continue to be hurt by these malicious comments.
As a result, in order to protect our artist, we will pursuing legal action with the law firm APRO.
Documents on the comments and the writers were forwarded to APRO on September 26, 2019.
Previously in July 2016, we worked with APRO on roughly 100 lawsuits regarding malicious rumors, and there were many who were fined between 500,000 and 1 million won (approximately $416 to $831). All asked for leniency, but every single one [of the commenters] was punished exactly as outlined by the law, with no leniency.
In addition to the legal action we are taking now, we will continue to monitor for malicious comments, false rumors, insults, and defamation and take legal action accordingly.
As we said before, there will be no settlements or leniency, and punishment will be dealt as outlined by the law.
