The BLACKPINK agency also explained why it has decided to remain silent on this issue in recent months. They also asked people to avoid sharing photos of a female idol.

YG Entertainment’s full statement regarding disclosed BLACKPINK Jennie photos is as follows:

“This is YG Entertainment.

We officially asked the police to investigate the original distributor of BLACKPINK Jennie’s personal photos. We followed the situation and filed a complaint in September after gathering the information.

YG refrained from commenting and voicing our position in the past to reduce the damage. However, we felt a sense of responsibility that the massive spread of rumors, criticism, personal attacks, sexual harassment and violations of privacy that accompanied personal photos could no longer be tolerated. Therefore, we would like to make it clear that we are taking legal action to remedy the situation.

YG takes strong legal action against posts that damage our artists’ reputation. We kindly inform you that the present case is being examined in connection with the violation of the Information and Communication Value Act, the violation of illegal information and dissemination, and the indecent use of means of communication.

We will take all possible legal action without forbearance to prevent further damage in the future. The photos that were disseminated on the Internet were released illegally, regardless of the intentions behind them. The act of sharing these photos may be considered a secondary offense and is punishable by law. We sincerely ask you to avoid sharing them lightly.

YG Entertainment will continue to work hard to protect the rights and interests of our artists. ”

Typically, when companies refer to a situation where fake images of their artists are disseminated on the Internet, they use the term “fabricated” in their statements.
