Taeyeon‘s agency SM Entertainment will take legal action.
On December 30, SM Entertainment announced that they will take strong legal action against haters.
Through an official statement, the agency said, “False facts, malicious accusations, and slanderous postings against our artist Taeyeon are spreading indiscriminately to online communities, YouTube, SNS, and portal sites.”
They explained, “This is an act of defaming and inflicting great mental pain on our artists, and we are collecting materials related to illegal activities online to protect artists. We will file a complaint through our legal representative, Kim & Chang Law office.”
The agency also requested fans to help gather evidence of illegal activities by sending it to their e-mail account (firstname.lastname@example.org) by January 3.
