Loen Entertainment, home to solo artist IU, recently revealed that 11 suspects have been fined for spreading malicious rumors about the singer.

The label announced back in November of 2016 that it intended to take strong legal actions against any who defamed the names of their artists. A representative of Loen stated, "After closely monitoring and collecting evidence regarding malicious rumors, slandering, and other posts/comments aimed at defaming our artist, we were able to file official charges against several individuals, and a disposition in the form of a fine has been determined for 11 suspects total." 


While Loen had intentions of revealing the content malicious posts and comments aimed toward IU, the label made the decision to withhold the information, based on the explanation that the content was full of "terms too difficult to put into words" and that the content may inflict further damage on not only IU, but also her family and fans. 


Loen Entertainment also relayed intentions to continue pressing charges against individuals who attempt to defame their artists.

    Comments intended should only be positive.  What benefit is slander or criticism?  These words do no good and only backfire to those sharing them.  Sorry IU.  You are a beautiful talented young lady with an even brighter future  ahead.  Stay positive and continue to make a difference in your world!!

    it should be normal to punish slander and such, it's possible to prove actual financial damages as the result of it, so at the very least it's possible to put a minimum price on the damage done.

    Good. It's time that anti-fans are forced to take responsibility for their actions and words. Some people seriously need to learn that you can't just say anything, eventhough there's something called free speech. Free speech does not mean that you're free to insult or hurt others. It means you can voice your opinion, but when you do, be wary that you will need to take responsibilty for those words. I applaud LOEN and JYPE for taking these guys to court. Hopefully this will set those guys straight.

    Finally, some good news!  Where is Kim joo jung'' agency to protect her and other agencies to protect valuable actors and actresses?  Kim did nothing to a apologize for.  Glad some company's have enough sense to bring down these people who love to destroy other people's lives.  Words can kill a person and devastate their dailies.  Finally some real justice here!!!!
