FNC Entertainment has released a statement of its actions regarding the 30 netizens who posted malicious comments about its artists.
On March 22, the company stated through an official press release that they would like to thank the supporters of its artists for their caring advice and interest and that they “filed a complaint at the Gangnam Police Station against more than 30 netizens for actions corresponding to contempt according to the ‘Act on Promotion of Information and Communication Network Utilization and Information Protection, etc.’ and the ‘Criminal Act.'”
FNC added that, “In January 12, the company indicated its intent for strong legal action against the baseless rumors and personal attacks/malicious comments regarding its affiliated artists on its official homepage. Despite this fact, netizens did not cease their actions, causing severe psychological harm to, not only the relevant artists, but also their family and loved ones.”
FNC Entertainment has vowed strong measures to protect its artists and the establishment of a safe internet environment as well as the collection of netizen IDs that continue to spread malicious comments and rumors even after the filing of its first complaint.
