Some netizens are posting malicious content targeting the late ASTRO member, Moonbin, causing public concern. Unfounded rumors about the deceased continue to circulate, prompting appeals to stop such behavior, followed by calls for a firm response.
ASTRO’s agency, Fantagio, stated in a post on the group’s official fan cafe on the 16th of June, “We have repeatedly identified extremely serious levels of malicious postings lately and have determined that we can no longer overlook them. Legal actions are already in progress. We want to make it clear that we will respond firmly without leniency to such incidents in the future.”
On the 13th of June, Moonbin’s mother stated in ASTRO’s official fan cafe, “I am aware that everyone mourns and misses my son, so I have witnessed the production of baseless rumors in some small online communities,” adding, “I hope that my son’s name will not be used in gossip, and I sincerely ask that no more unconfirmed facts and rumors be spread.”
