YG Entertainment, BLACKPINK’s management company, is now taking legal action against the people for leaking the personal photos of Band’s member Jennie. News of Jennie and BTS’s V’s dating rumours has been circulating all around the internet. Everyone seems so interested in their personal life that some might have crossed their boundaries. So finally YG has taken the action against the people who are running Jennie’s privacy.
YG Entertainment asked the South Korean police for an investigation
YG Entertainment consulted South Korean police to investigate this matter. Moreover, they asked to find out the distributor of the photo of Jennie and BTS’s V’s dining photo. The pictures have surfaced on Twitter and Telegram.
On October 3, the management company released a statement via BBC News. The statement follows:
“We have officially requested the police to investigate the original distributor of BLACKPINK Jennie’s personal photographs. We have been monitoring the situation and submitted our complaint in September after gathering information.
YG has refrained from commenting and expressing our position in the past to minimise the damage. However, we felt a sense of responsibility that it was no longer possible to condone the mass spread of rumours, criticism, personal attacks, sexual harassment, and privacy violations that were coming with the personal photographs. Therefore, we would like to clarify that we are taking legal action to rectify the situation.”
BTS’s management company HYBE Entertainment also released a statement
BTS’s Hybe Entertainment also filed additional criminal charges for posting Jennie and V’s personal photos. The agency said it was a personal attack and defamation.
The agency said,” We have found multiple defamation postings containing false information about the artists on platforms in and outside of Korea. We also have found that a specific poster has been spreading the same ill-intentioned rumour on multiple platforms and filed a criminal complaint against the poster after gathering all of the repetitively uploaded postings.”
