First of all, we would like to thank you for your great love and support towards our artists of KQ Entertainment.
Recently, indiscriminate and continuous posts online, such as personal attacks on the artists, malicious postings, and the dissemination of false information have caused harm and mental distress not only to the artists but even to the fans.
To protect the rights and interests of our artists, we inform you that we will continue to monitor any kind of slander, malicious postings, and the spread of false information and legally respond to them. We stress once again that we will respond heavily without any leniency or agreement.
We will also continue to take legal action against defamation and additional damages occurring in the future.
The statement goes on to ask fans who have captured malicious comments to send them to the company. The company concludes, “KQ Entertainment will continue to do our best to protect the rights and interests of our artists. Thank you.”
