On April 12, IU's label Fave Entertainment announced strong and strict legal action against YouTuber A, who has been garnering attention on online communities for his verbal sexual harassment toward the solo singer.

YouTuber A's history of harassing IU verbally through sexual and derogatory remarks has become a buzz online recently. It's been revealed that during online broadcasts, YouTuber A would answer questions like "Do you like IU better or your pet dog better?" with, "Of course I like IU better. I can't do anything about it. Because my pet dog can't offer its v***** to me but IU can." 


When commenters on his broadcast warned him of IU's label taking legal actions, YouTuber A reportedly said, "If IU files a lawsuit against me, I'd be honored. I can meet her in person in court." Claiming to be an avid fan of IU, the YouTuber has posted several broadcasts about IU, as well as remarks toward her former boyfriend Jang Kiha, and more. 


Fave Entertainment stated about the lawsuit, "After deciding that [the YouTuber's] recent remarks were excessive, our label's legal team is preparing to file an official lawsuit. We expect the filing process to take a few days. We will not hold back in this lawsuit." 


Shortly after news of Fave Entertainment's legal actions, the YouTuber uploaded an apology, saying, "People who do not watch the broadcasts can't help but get the wrong idea. Most people who watch my broadcasts just laugh it off. There's no meaning [behind my remarks]. I didn't want to deride [IU] or mean to harass her sexually. I apologize. Everything is my fault." 


Despite YouTuber A's apology, Fave Entertainment has announced that it will not withdraw the decision to take legal actions. Netizens seem to agree with the label's strict stance, commenting that the YouTuber should not be let off the hook so easily, and that he needs to face legal punishment for his actions.

    Nothing written in this article warrants a lawsuit. Now comments about wanting to do it with your celebrity crush are cause for a lawsuit? As far as I know, this guy was not going to IU's social media pages and being vulgar. He was making his own videos and making, imo, while maybe not the most classy, but pretty common remarks made by fans all of the time. How many ppl on this very site and others like it often make jokes about wanting to do it w/ their celebrity girl or guy idol crush? This is such a waste of time. Hope they lose and hope a court tells them off for wasting their time.

    http://www.allkpop.com/article/2013/09/ius-agency-loen-entertainment-speaks-up-about-rumor-spreading-perpertrator ... <-- IU and Cyber Stalker Harassment ... This is NOT the 'first time around' for IU and her AGENCY in *legally* (S.K) 'going after' CYBER PERPS like this Mr. A here ... S.KOREAN LAW is *way different* on SLANDER issues than say USA/EURO Laws. IU's AGENCY has *won* before in COURT on this type of issue ; they will WIN again!
