Netizens who made slanderous remarks about singer, actor Jaejoong online, have been sentenced to pay a hefty fine. 


Kim Jaejoong's Korean fans recently sued the slanderers. According to Suwon District Court Sungnam on July 29, two of the accused received an order to pay a fine for the infringement of the law regarding the promotion of information and communication network use and protection of information. Suwon District Court sentenced the accused to pay 3 million won fine each.

The court conveyed, "Everyone should not publicly disclose false information and false accusations through SNS and communication networks for the purpose of slandering."

Excellent news. About time people online are held accountable for their nasty comments. There are so many posters on here that deserve to be punished for their disgusting comments.

Good. They might think twice about posting hate comments when the money in their pockets is at risk. Nothing else seems to work with some people.
