Pledis Entertainment Warns Of Legal Action Against Violation Of NU’EST’s Privacy
Pledis Entertainment will be taking action to protect NU’EST’s rights to privacy.
On May 13, the agency posted the following statement:
Hello, this is Pledis Entertainment.
Thank you for your love and interest in our artist NU’EST. However, there have recently been a number of cases of people who have crossed the line in their expression of interest in NU’EST.
Despite our previous announcement about orderly fan club behavior and the protection of our artists’ privacy, fans are continuing to visit the company, practice rooms, recording rooms, fitness centers, etc. to wait for the members or follow their vehicles to their dormitory, causing the members to suffer from severe psychological distress.
Right after NU’EST finished their scheduled activities on Tuesday, May 12, there was an incident in which [fans] chased them by car and snuck into the hallway of their apartment building to wait for them, so we immediately reported [the fans] to the local police and took additional measures.
We will respond strongly to all current and future cases, including these [latest] ones, through action such as limiting their NU’EST-related fan club activities permanently. We will collect evidence via sources including CCTV footage and the internet to file a complaint at the local police station. Moreover, we will ask for severe punishment for all matters that compromise the NU’EST’s safety and personal rights.
We ask for L.O.Λ.E’s cooperation so that NU’EST can have healthy and stable activities, and we will continue to manage [the cases] and do our best to protect the artists.
NU’EST made their comeback on May 11 with the album “The Nocturne” and title track “I’m in Trouble.”
