Big Hit Music is taking legal action against individuals who infringed the rights and interests of BTS

On September 27th, BTS’s agency Big Hit Music posted a notice on the group’s official fan community platform Weverse, saying they are regularly initiating legal proceedings against perpetrators of malicious activities related to BTS, including defamation, personal attacks, sexual harassment, the spread of groundless information and ill-intentioned criticism.

Big Hit Music said, “We filed multiple criminal complaints with law enforcement agencies based on evidence related to acts infringing on the rights of the artists, including defamation, submitted by our fans as well as collected through our own monitoring.”

Big Hit Music has reportedly gathered evidence regarding individuals who repeatedly sent mails and packages to the artists’ residences, even causing harm to the artists’ families, and filed criminal complaints against them on charges of violating laws regarding stalking crimes (Act on Punishment of Crime of Stalking). As a result, the court has issued an interim restraining order and the prosecution is carrying out investigations.

Earlier in February, when the investigation was suspended and the prosecution of some suspects was rejected, Big Hit Music filed an objection against the decision and requested a re-investigation.

After being sent to the prosecution, the suspects were finally found guilty of insults and defamation against the artists and received legal punishment.
