Apink’s Jung Eun Ji Takes Legal Action Against Stalker
Jung Eun Ji has taken action against a stalker.
On August 25, Apink’s agency released the following statement:
Hello, this is Play M Entertainment.
On August 20 (Friday), we filed a legal complaint via the law firm Wooree against a perpetrator who has stalked our artist Jung Eun Ji since March 2020 for violation of the Punishment of Minor Offenses Act and the Act on Promotion of Information and Communications Network Utilization and Information Protection, etc.
This action was taken as this perpetrator of continuous and malicious stalking was requested several times to not approach her but recently even came to her home, causing more severe trouble for the artist. If this harm occurs again, we will once again continue taking strong legal action.
We have been taking continuous legal action against malicious commenters, and a few perpetrators have been penalized according to the law.
We are continuously receiving tips regarding malicious comments or sasaengs, and we are filing legal complaints following internal review.
We will continue to put in our full effort to protect our artists’ rights, and we ask for continuous love and interest.
Previously in July, Jung Eun Ji spoke out on Twitter against people who have been appearing at her home.
