On August 24, a representative of YES24 announced, "We are preparing to sue Cho and 6 others who continuously used macro to purchase a mass amount of EXO, SHINee, and other idol group's concert tickets. Previously, we met and warned Cho, and even signed a contract [with him] stating he will never again purchase tickets this way.
