JYP Entertainment announced the agency has made a police report against an Ilbe user who threatened to throw hydrochloric acid on TWICE.

On July 7, the agency stated, "On the 6th, Seoul's Gangnam Police station gave us a notice concerning the related situation," revealing JYPE has started taking legal action. The label has already heightened security for the girl group as when they returned from their concert in Japan.

As previously reported, an Ilbe user poster wrote, "Yeah, money is good. Money is the best. Never come to Korea. I'll be waiting for you at the airport with 10 L of hydrochloric acid." A rep of JYPE expressed the agency's intent to take heavy legal action against the poster.

Stay tuned for updates.

I don't understand at all that mind set. What does that person personally feel against them to threaten that? So crazy

No matter how you hate a group, threat of violence is a no no. Take a step back and realize they are just entertaining people.

Hah, moron's who think they can say anything while hiding behind a computer. He's probably going to wet himself when the police come knocking on the door to his mom's basement.

serve him/her right!!!

bubble4 Friday, July 7, 2017

Serve that person what he deserve! This type of thing really build worry and panic among people... And the acid threat is really creepy...  People work their ass off, training until midnight, cant live freely, cant meet parent everyday.. Yet people threatened them with acid to ruin their life.. What the hell is wrong with those people... Be better human being

Hopefully this thing will be caught and punished at the full extent of the law.

Omg i cant imagine. Hydroloric acid is so bad. It could ruin their beauty face! Argh if i was in the aiport... im ready with the gun for that dumbass

jinssam Friday, July 7, 2017

Good. Im not their fan, but they shouldnt be receiving threats like this. Things like this need to be addressed seriously and heavily

jerok Friday, July 7, 2017

I say give him/her 2 years in prison and 1 year probation for attempting to commit a crime. 5 years in prison and 2 year probation if it is a conspiracy with other people. That should set an example to others trying to be tough online.

pablo27 jerok Friday, July 7, 2017

I'd say 2 minutes... in a vat... of hydrochloric acid... that should whiten up his/her black heart...

Another report said that the person has already been sue for defamation

pablo27 melalabanana Friday, July 7, 2017

He/she can't be sued for defamation... there was no defamation in his/her comments...it was a straight up threat... that's what he/she should be sued for.

melalabanana pablo27 Friday, July 7, 2017

Thats what the report said.

pablo27 melalabanana Friday, July 7, 2017

I was just saying... maybe the report was in error... but I do hope they caught the perp.

Sued is the wrong word. When you see that word you usually think that attorney has been hired and JYPE is suing for money. That's not what it is here. JYP filed a criminal complaint for defamation. The person will be charged, arrested if he is located, tried for defamation and if guilty will pay a fine, community service, and/or go to jail.

pablo27 bangeryun94 Saturday, July 8, 2017

Oh, so JYPE did file for defamation... over where I'm from the charges will probably fall under something like grave threats... it's going to be a felony charge with possible jail time and a restraining order.

bangeryun94 pablo27 Sunday, July 9, 2017

It's like that here as well. Death threats would be a separate and more serious charge
