Published Categorized as Kpop

Big Hit Music has issued an update regarding the legal action they take on behalf of BTS pertaining to malicious comments and posts.

On September 29, they released an official statement via Weverse to announce they have taken legal action against a specific poster who posted the same Ill-Intentioned Rumors online. They explain they have been identified and sent to the prosecution.

Read their statement below!


Our company regularly initiates legal proceedings against perpetrators of malicious activities related to BTS, including defamation, personal attacks, sexual harassment, the spread of groundless information, and ill-intentioned criticism. We would like to provide an update on these activities.

We have recently filed additional criminal complaints against postings with personal attacks and defamation using new information provided by fans as well as collected through our monitoring initiatives.

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 rumor in multiple
platforms and filed a criminal complaint against the poster after gathering all of the repetitively uploaded postings. We are currently following our legal response
process which monitors and collects evidence on malicious postings for 365 days and then includes them on the complaint. Active reporting of our fans has been a big help to our malicious postings monitoring initiatives.

We would also like to share with you that after an extended police investigation, we were able to identify the suspect and the case has been sent to the prosecutor’s office.

BIGHIT regularly collects information on malicious postings regarding BTS, reports them to the authorities and files criminal complaints. We would like to stress that we will continue to initiate strict measures to ensure that these malicious acts are not repeated, and our policy of no settlement and no leniency remains in effect.

We ask that you make continued use of our hotline ([email protected]) to report any cases of abuse.

We will continue to work to ensure that the rights of our artists are fully

Thank you.

Many fans believe the statement is directed at a specific Twitter user that has been spreading alleged couple photos of BTS V and Jennie together. The photos authenticity has never been verified and despite the rumors running wild with the same user giving regular updates, Big Hit Music remained silent. Fans are glad they’re taking legal action against what they believe to be the original poster.

Big Hit does not mention what they’re suing for directly but fans concluded its about the Twitter user. However, the agency is yet to address the dating rumors between V and Jennie directly.
