Kang Daniel’s Legal Reps Request Closure Of “Produce 101 Season 2” Fan Community For Malicious Posts
Kang Daniel’s legal representatives have submitted a request to close down the “Produce 101 Season 2” fan community on DC Inside.
On December 16, his legal representatives released the following official statement:
This is Lawyer Yeom Yong Pyo of Yulchon Law Firm who is representing singer Kang Daniel.
On December 16, we submitted an application to the Seoul Central District Court to request the closure of the “Produce 101 Season 2 Gallery” (hereinafter referred to as Season 2 Gallery) on the internet portal site DC Inside.
There are currently millions of posts publicly posted on Season 2 Gallery, many of which are libelous falsehoods that severely undermine Kang Daniel’s social rating, such as illegal postings that exceed the boundaries of normal freedom of expression and are subject to very severe punishment.
As many as thousands or even tens of thousands of illegal posts are posted daily on Season 2 Gallery, and as a result, Kang Daniel has declared a break in his entertainment career.
It is widely known that not only Kang Daniel, but also many other celebrities have suffered serious damage, including violations of privacy, due to illegal malicious comments.
We considered these posts as part of the interest in Kang Daniel and expected [people] to voluntarily refrain from the illegal activities, but there was no other way, which eventually led us to take to legal measures.
We will continue to take strong measures against malicious postings by taking steps such as deleting postings, suspending postings, blocking access, and even closing online bulletin boards.
KONNECT Entertainment has also shared an update regarding their ongoing legal action on behalf of Kang Daniel.
