IU‘s agency has released a statement revealing that they have taken action towards malicious commenters as well as those who are spreading composite photos of the singer.
LOEN Tree officials said on November 19th, “On the 17th, we have filed a complaint against the publishers of the malicious comments and the distributors of the false composite photos (of IU) to the Seoul Gangnam Police Station.”
In 2013, the culprit who spread a malicious rumor about IU was caught but upon an agreement, was given 200 hours of community service and the complaint was dropped. However, LOEN Tree warns that this time around, they will not show leniency towards the culprits this time around.
Earlier this month, a composite photo of IU began spreading but was proven to be photoshop. The photo was originally taken at IU’s fan meeting but was composited as if she was performing in lingerie. The agency has been busy tracking down the original poster since then.
