The agency’s statement

On October 3, 2022, YG Entertainment released a statement clarifying the matter and stating that they have taken appropriate steps on the matter. Not only that, but the agency also informed that the matter has gone to the police, who have launched a plan to sue the culprits for the invasion of the personal photos of the BLACKPINK member. They will reportedly pursue the individual responsible for distributing the images on the internet. The agency was reportedly monitoring the online content and submitted a complaint based on the same in September.

More details

The agency’s statement also revealed that they refrained from commenting or expressing their stand on the matter to minimize the damage the situation caused but found it tough to hold back because the personal attacks, privacy invasion, and sexual harassment became the main concern. The agency will reportedly take action with leniency to rectify the situation. Moreover, the act of sharing unverified content and writing malicious posts against the artist (Jennie) will get charged with defamation of character and a violation of the ban on the illegal distribution of information. Moreover, the one sharing illegally disclosed images will also get punished by law.
