Rhymer Kim first thanked the fans for giving great love, attention, and support for Brand New Music trainees - Park Woo JinLee Dae Hwi, Kim Dong Hyun, and Lim Young Min - who're currently participating in the competition program. 


He then stated, "We believe the degree of the baseless malicious posts, the spread of false information, sexual insults, and other acts that defame character have become too severe for our young trainees to bear. We are here to clearly announce that we will be taking strict legal action with no agreements permitted." 


Lastly, Rhymer Kim emphasized that Brand New Music will continue to do their best to protect their artists. 




안녕하세요 브랜뉴뮤직입니다. 우선 [프로듀스 101 시즌2]에 참여 중인 브랜뉴뮤직 소속 연습생들에게 아낌없는 응원과 사랑을 보내주시는 팬 여러분들께 진심으로 감사의 말씀을 전합니다. 당사는 최근까지 계속되고 있는 소속 연습생들을 향한 근거 없는 허위사실 유포, 인신 공격 및 성적인 모욕 등의 수위가 더 이상 지켜보기엔 아직 어린 연습생들이 감당하기 너무 버겁고 심각하게 명예를 훼손한다고 판단, 이에 대해 그 동안 팬 분들께서 보내주신 자료들과 당사에서 모니터링 한 자료들을 수집하여 찾아낸 악성 게시물자와 허위사실 유포자들을 상대로 '정보통신망 이용촉진 및 정보보호 등에 관한 법률 제70조'에 의거한 사이버 명예훼손죄로 선처 없는 강력한 법적 대응을 진행할 것임을 분명히 밝히는 바입니다. 앞으로도 당사는 어린 연습생들의 보호자로서 소속 연습생들을 보호하기 위해 최선을 다 할 것입니다. 감사합니다.

    well done. Nobody deserve this kind of action, one thing is that u don't like them, u can't stand them... but to organize or plan something to hurt them and their image just because u felt like it deserve a punishment. I like the four of them, especially Park Woojin who is awkwardly cutie pie

    They have money to pay for lawyers to defend trainees, but not money to fund higher budget projects for their current artists. I'm not saying they shouldn't defend these trainees, but ignoring comments seems a lot cheaper.

    I am reading articles such as this one for years. They are "announcing" legal actions, but never really commencing them. So they are not really spending their money on lawyers.
