Park Jin Young has revealed that JYP Entertainment intends to take legal action if rumors of SHAUN’s chart manipulation turn out to be true.
When SHAUN’s “Way Back Home” began climbing the charts at an unbelievably rapid pace, netizens not only accused him of chart manipulation but have even suspected that the so-called “chart manipulators” are targeting TWICE.
Park Jin Young has since posted on his Instagram stating that if these suspicions are proven, JYP Entertainment also plans to take the matter to the prosecutors’ office.
“Fair competition and evaluation is the cornerstone for any industry. Recently there are suspicions regarding music chart fabrication and it’s hurting all parties related to it.
We heard there’re already requests made to the Ministry of culture, sports and tourism by another company. We are currently discussing this matter with other companies and planning to request investigations to the Ministry of culture, sports and tourism and the KFTC. Depending on the result we are planning take this to the prosecutors’ office.
Hope these suspicions get cleared so we can all go back to our real job.” ㅡ Park Jin Young
Meanwhile, SHAUN’s agency has temporarily canceled all interviews for the sake of the artist’s emotional health and has taken legal action against the malicious comments.
