    That's fine, but could you please make it more clear which artists are actually still with you?

    IF you are referring to SUZY ; her contract has EXPIRED with JYPe Agency. And it seems NOT likely that SUZY will be re-signing with JYPe Agency ; although I suppose it is still *remotely* possible. The JYPe Agency website should likely give accurate information as to who their current Artists are --> ... http://www. jype. com/

    I mean every shady and confusing thing they do. Like taking people's pictures off the building and not updating us on expired contracts. If you're going to make severe threats you need to make it more clear whose off limits.

    I do not follow your logic here. But that matters not. I am just going to 'opt out' of this 'thread' at this point. Hope that is okay.

    Remember when WG's image was removed from the side of the JYPE building before they'd even announced their disbandment? And how MissA's picture was replaced by Suzy alone?

    people crying "freedom of speech" are those who think they can say "anything", while you sit on your couch typing you might cause psychological stress and damage to someone, God! you could ruin someone's life or even push someone to commit suicide and that's ok because "it's freedom of speech"? So many psychos everywhere...

    lol JYP brings out the lawsuit card pretty easily...I don't know how it works in SK, but in the US, there's quite a high standard for defamation and libel...You can't just bring a suit against someone for saying they don't like an artist or that the artist is ugly or that he/she can't sing...but I guess it's a good scare tactic at least to make people think twice before they try saying anything

    In SK, they can - and do - go after people spreading malicious gossip online, especially about celebrities. The police seem to be quite experienced in investigating these cases, and the sentences can be fairly severe. I suppose this has to do with how important the entertainment industry is to SK; it's one of their biggest worldwide exports. It's absolutely not just a threat.

    are you serious? in the US everything and anything is sued for. Do you know why Caution:Hot Content is written on coffee cups? Cause one woman spilled coffee on herself and burned herself after ordering the HOT coffee. lol US is notorious for suing, the best place to be a lawyer

    Libel and slander are against the law in South Korea. It's not a lawsuit JYPE is bringing against netizens where they are awarded monetary compensation, it's criminal charges. And the laws are quite clear. Harm to reputation, harm to family, violence, false accusations. Take the worst comment made by trolls here and multiply it by 100. That's what you'll find on Korean sites and artists' social media.

    True, but criticism and disappointment don't end there, and you can't be punshished for it either which is a good thing I guess. Ofc no one deserves hate but that doesn't stop people from being critical or disappointed in you.

    lol the case you're referring to, the mcd's hot coffee case, resulted in second degree burns that forced the woman to receive skin graft surgery and months to recover, so yes I understand. Your summary is quite a simplification of what actually happened in the case. The US is the best place to be a lawyer, I'll say for sure. What I'm saying is, lawsuits can be long and fruitless. Libel and defamation is not easily proved in US courts because of the causation standard that must be proved by the plaintiff. Suits can be brought, but they're rarely won unless they're actually substantive claims where there's a clear causal link between the stated comments/actions and identifiable damages and the cost of bringing individual lawsuits can be quite high, although I guess JYP has the money to go get 'em. I'm sure the standard is not the same for SK if they can so easily say they're taking action against netizens; or perhaps, like I said, it's just a simple scare tactic to get people to think twice before saying anything.

    Can you read? JYP does not NEED money to go get them. It is a criminal offense. All JYPE needs to do is file a complaint with the police/prosecutor.

    Yeah, I can read, can you? Cyber defamation in SK is exposable to both CIVIL litigation AND CRIMINAL prosecution. Where in the statement does it say that they're filing a complaint with the police/prosecutor? When you say you're taking "legal action," it means you're bringing a civil action. When you say you're reporting criminal activity, you're reporting criminal activity. I just read the statement put out by JYP and it doesn't specify either, so where are you getting your assumption from?

    It's not an assumption it's a fact. And no, cyber defamation in South Korea is not a civil litigation. JYPE would not receive money. Filing defamation is done through the police/prosecutors office. Please stop pretending that you know anything about this law.

    People are so confused on how freedom of speech works, my goodness! There's a difference between saying "I hate Jackson" to "I will kill Jackson when he comes to my country" (this just an example BTW). You can be hateful all you want but the moment that hate threatens someone, distorts the truth, and prevents them from having a livelihood and a good image, then you bet your ass a strong lawsuit will be coming your way.

    Freedom of speech laws vary (substantially) country to country, too.

    Not a lawsuit, criminal charges. The word "sue" really needs to stop being used by writers.

    JYP artists are one of the well mannered idols IN COMPARISON to other groups. They rarely are involved in huge issues except for Khun's DUI and underage drinking.

    A defamation charge is slow going. It has to be reported, investigated and then offending parties charged. We have an excellent cyber division but they still got to track down addys and then the actual users.
