A representative from Pledis said, "There is no current plans to release additional official statements regarding broadcast promotions, as there is no plans [for Baekho] to halt his promotions until the end of the police investigation. It's believed that the counter lawsuit against the person claiming to be the victim is still in process. Please be understanding, as the police investigation will determine everything."
