This is Big Hit Music.

Our company regularly initiates legal proceedings against perpetrators of malicious activities related to BTS, including ill-intentioned criticism, the spread of groundless information, sexual harassment, personal attacks and defamation. We would like to provide an update on these activities.

Our company has collected evidence for malicious comments and postings on online communities, blogs, portal cafés, and social media that exceed the bounds of ordinary expression of opinions and include defamation based on false information and socially unacceptable postings through our monitoring initiatives as well as from information submitted by fans, and have filed criminal complaints against multiple individuals for defamation (Article 70 of the Act on Promotion of Information and Communication Network Utilization and Information Protection, etc.) and insult (Article 311 of the Criminal Act). In addition, we have brought additional complaints against perpetrators who have continued to engage in defamatory activities or spread misinformation without remorse even while undergoing investigation for their criminal activities.

We will continue to initiate strict measures to ensure that perpetrators who engage in these malicious acts are prosecuted to the full extent of the law, and our policy of no settlement and no leniency remains in effect.

We regularly collect evidence and file criminal complaints through constant and real-time monitoring of online postings in all channels including BTS’s Twitter, blog and YouTube as well as via our hotline. We ask that you make continued use of our hotline ( to report any cases of abuse.

We are always grateful for the affection and dedication shown by our fans of BTS.

We will continue to work to ensure that the rights of our artists are fully protected.

Thank you.
