The rumors were somewhat ridiculous to start with, but of course they spread quickly through the Internet. The rumors quickly spread on the internet that IU would be marrying a member of a boy band. LOEN Entertainment spoke up and said,
Hello, this is LOEN Entertainment.
We are making our label's official statement about the rumors that are spreading on the Internet, SNS, and mobile messenger applications. First, we want to say how disappointed we are that something that is completely false without any proof can spread so quickly and easily.
Our company will be reporting this rumor to the police and take legal action against the person who first spread the rumors as well as the people who spread the rumors actively. Not only that, we will also be taking police action against those who continuously post hate comments against IU, and will be taking legal action against the defamation of character happening on the Internet. We are going to take strong action against the action that creates and spreads rumors that cross the line.
Please, we politely ask you to be considerate of the artist that is suffering from this and to stop these baseless predictions and exaggerated rumors. We apologize to everyone, including the fans, and we will bring good promotions and news in the future.
Siwon also jokingly tweeted to Eunhyuk, "Congratulations.. Lee Hyuk Jae.." Kangin responded to the tweet with, "Is today April fools day?"
