SM Takes Legal Action For False Rumors About EXO’s Chanyeol + Perpetrators Forwarded To Prosecution
On May 17, SM Entertainment revealed, “We sued those who spread false rumors about Chanyeol, and as far as we know, the police have identified those who were accused and forwarded them to the prosecution with a recommendation for indictment.”
They further stated, “This is just one of the cases of infringement on our artists’ rights, which the agency is consistently taking legal action for. We are taking legal action against the spread of false rumors, insult, and more regarding our artists, including Chanyeol.”
Last October, Chanyeol was embroiled in a controversy about his personal life. At the time, SM Entertainment announced that they had no official statement. Four months later, Chanyeol wrote a letter addressed to his fans where he alluded to the controversy.
Chanyeol enlisted in the military as an active duty soldier in March. Prior to his enlistment, he starred in the film “The Box.”
