8TURN's Agency Denies School Bullying Allegations Involving Myungho + Announces Legal Action

Rookie boy group 8TURN’s agency MNH Entertainment has warned against people who create malicious posts about member Myungho.

On February 8, MNH Entertainment posted an official statement on 8TURN’s fan cafe, announcing that they will be taking legal action against perpetrators who post malicious posts including false facts, defamation, and slander against 8TURN member Myungho and their artists.

Recently, Myungho was embroiled in controversy when someone who claimed to be Myungho’s high school classmate (hereafter referred to as “A”) posted online that they were allegedly subjected to verbal abuse by Myungho and his group of friends, including being called degrading words, insulted, and more. Seven years later now, “A” claimed that they have received no apology and that they are still receiving treatment due to panic disorder.

The full statement from MNH Entertainment reads as follows:

Hello, this is MNH Entertainment.

Recently, false information, including malicious slander, has been circulating online about our artist 8TURN’s Myungho.

After confirming the information and cross-verifying the facts through various sources, it is clear that the content posted online is false, which is damaging the reputation of our artist.

Therefore, we are currently taking legal action by requesting a legal representative to protect our artists from malicious posts such as defamation, malicious slander, and the spread of false information.

From here on out, we will hold those who upload [malicious posts] online without prior fact-checking liable and will take strict measures with no leniency to ensure strong legal punishment for those who publish malicious interpretations, posts, and comments beyond mere expression of opinion.

MNH Entertainment will do its best to protect our artists in the future.

Thank you.

8TURN debuted with their first mini album “8TURNRISE” on January 30 along with a music video for the title track “TIC TAC.”
