Lee Min Ho has had enough and is the next in a string of celebrities to take legal action against the circulation of false rumors and the posting of malicious comments.
On October 31, his agency, MYM Entertainment, revealed that they have made complaints against the people involved to the Gangnam Police Station. The agency had been preparing for this moment for a while, collecting evidence and more. Now, they have officially submitted their complaints.
MYM Entertainment stated, "We had refrained from taking action because we believed enduring this was a part of being an actor who receives the public's interest and love, but because the actions persisted for many years, which not only leaves a great emotional scar and creates great mental stress to the actor and the fans who watch over him but also the baseless slander and abasement ruins his honor and image, we've reached the point where we could no longer overlook this.
"Hurting others through the exploitation of anonymity is a clear crime. From hereon, we will take firm action against those leaving malicious content and comments as well as false rumors not only for the safety of our actor but also for the soundness of the internet culture."
