Ben announces legal action against malicious commenters following sajaegi rumors

 

Ben is taking legal action against malicious commenters. 

On December 18, MAJOR9 announced their plans to take legal action. The agency stated, "Our artist, as well as their fans, are mentally suffering and in pain due to the various malicious comments by malicious netizens. As the agency, we decided to take legal action as we can no longer remain silent."

The announcement followed the Sajaegi (chart manipulation) rumors on Ben's new song "180°." The rumors spread on the web after Ben beat top idol groups such as EXO and TWICE, and remained at the top of the charts even in the late hours. 

The ballad singer has been taking #1 on various music charts and has also topped Instiz chart for the third week of December

If you are not from big3/ someone with popularity = sajaegi.

It is so sad that korean themselves only recognized "brand name" end up creating unfriendly music environment that is exclusive.

It's true that there is always possibility of chart manipulation, but accusations mostly goes to those with less power.

If kpop want to go international, there are lot of problems they should resolve to get global recognition.

Do people not realise that Ben has been a pretty well known singer in South Korea for many years now. Just because she isn’t famous internationally does not mean she’s not famous in Korea.

ben established herself for the past years by singing chart topping osts and this is not the first time that she topped the charts. stop making malicious comments about Ben and just listen to her song, 180 degrees. she got really nice songs, like “Stay”, “You”, “Love ing”, “my all”,”misty road” and many more

It's not the first time she topped the charts though? She always does well. I would be more surprised if it didn't do well.
