The Fair Trade Commission conducted an on-site investigation on Kakao Entertainment.
Recently, Kakao Entertainment has been suspected of attempting to spread rumors through their Facebook page ‘Idol Issue’ account against competing girl groups.
According to a report on the morning of November 17, the Fair Trade Commission dispatched an investigator to Kakao Entertainment’s headquarters in Pangyo on November 16 to examine whether it violated the Fair Trade Act or not. This was done to identify whether the Facebook Page ‘Idol Issue’ made attempts to spread rumors or whether the act constitutes a violation of the Fair Trade Act.
In response, Kakao Entertainment announced its statement on November 17 confirming that their Facebook account posts violated copyrights and as a result, they decided to close the account. However, they denied ever maliciously running the account to spread rumors about competing idol groups from other agencies while propping up their own.
