FNC Entertainment is working hard to maintain legal protection for their artists.
On October 23, the label announced, "One male who incessantly sent direct messages and videos containing sexual harassment content to AOA Seolhyun's personal Instagram account has been sentenced by the Incheon District Court, after submitting a lawsuit against him in April of this year. He will be placed on probation for 2 years, and if he commits an additional felony, he will have to serve 6 months in prison."
Additionally, FNC Entertainment is also awaiting the court sentence of two males who spread photoshopped images of Seolhyun earlier this year. One other netizen who has been charged with spreading malicious, false rumors about Seolhyun will likely be sentenced by the court soon, as well.
Finally, FNC stated, "We plan on taking strict legal action without settlements to all cases of cyber crime from here on. We will do our best to protect the basic rights of our artists and correct the prevalence of malicious cyber culture."
