Maroo Entertainment gave an update on the legal action against malicious commenters.
Back in October, Maroo Entertainment started the legal action against netizens targeting Wanna One's Park Ji Hoon with malicious comments and rumors.
On July 4, Maroo Entertainment officially announced, "As we've revealed on the update notice in February, a number of suspects attended police questioning and some cases have been sent to the prosecution office. Police investigation on the suspects followed and several requested to come to an agreement. However, we strictly asked for punishment without any agreements to the prosecutor."
The agency continued, "The prosecutor came to a decision on several suspects and they were indicted, and currently, the court is ruling a number of suspects guilty. Throughout this process, false information and malicious posts that are also causing harm to the fans are continuing. Following this announcement, we plan to collect the data sent from the fans, as well as the ones we monitored, and take additional legal action against the malicious posts of sexually harassment, defamation of character, and more."
Stay tuned for further updates.
