The singer's label C9 Entertainment responded, "The man in the video that is currently being spread online is not Jung Joon Young. At first, we did not take legal action because we didn't even see it worthy of action; however, we are now currently discussing how to take care of the issue since the video is continuing to spread. We will announce our plans against the person who initially spread the video, claiming it's Jung Joon Young in it, once we come to a decision."
Netizens also stood on Jung Joon Young's side and commented, "I saw the video and it's someone who looks like Jung Joon Young", "It's obviously not him ㅡㅡ His body was way too built for it to be Jung Joon Young. The only thing that was similar was his thick double eyelid", "It's so sad to see Jung Joon Young suffer because of that false exclusive report by that reporter Park", and more.
