[JUST IN - 12th August 2020]
LIWU, a law firm, said “Monitoring malicious comments about LMH"
Earlier, MYM Entertainment, LMH's agency, also said, "We inform you that we are taking legal action against malicious comments and postings based on malicious slander against LMH and groundless false facts."
The agency said, "We judge by the level of malicious comments and repetitive posting activities of malicious comments that have reached an intolerable level, and we have been checking malicious postings and comments through our own monitoring and reports from our fans and continuing to identify the level. Based on the evidence collected, we have filed a complaint with the Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office on May 22 for defamation under Article 70 of the Act on Promotion of Information and Communications Network Utilisation and Information Protection and insult under Article 311 of the Criminal Law"
Added, "We will take stern measures to ensure that we can pay the right price without any leniency or agreement in the future. The mental stress and psychological wounds of not only the actor but also fans who have watched the illegal acts that have lasted for years are great. Also, as it is an issue that leads to a situation in which the actor's reputation and image are damaged by slander and disparagement by false information, we will continue to take active legal action; so we ask for your continued interest and information,"
