Hello. This is MakeUs Entertainment.
We will begin taking legal action against malicious commenters who damage and dishonor our artist, Sunmi’s, image by spreading groundless rumors and creating malicious posts and comments. We are preparing to take legal action by continually monitoring the reported information and collecting evidence with the help of our legal team.
Cursing and leaving hateful messages under an anonymous name is clearly a crime. As a response, we will take strict civil action against the criminals without offering any settlement or warning. We will respond in the same manner to future damages as well.
We ask for the fans’ active cooperation. The reports coming in from <Miyanes> are an incredible help, and we ask anyone with evidence of malicious contents to send their reports to the email address below.
Our company will no longer tolerate our artists being hurt by malicious comments that people spit out under anonymity. We will do our very best to protect our artists’ rights. We hope that through our efforts, the internet culture will become a better and safer environment. Thank you
