BLACKPINK’s Jennie’s private images were leaked, and YG Entertainment will file a lawsuit against this matter. Prior to this, after intimate images of people who appeared to be the two stars appeared online, speculations began to circulate that Jennie and V from BTS were dating. The agency will file a lawsuit, according to a statement issued by YG Entertainment on October 3 in which it strongly condemns acts of slander and the dissemination of false information.
The posts that aim to harm the reputation of the musicians will be subject to “serious legal action,” according to YG. “We would like to inform you that this case is being filed for violations of the Information and Communication Network Act, violation of illegal information and distribution, and obscene use of communication media.”
The statement issued by YG Entertainment reads, “We have officially requested the police to investigate the original distributor of BLACKPINK Jennie’s personal photographs. We have been monitoring the situation and submitted our complaint in September after gathering information. YG has refrained from commenting and expressing our position in the past to minimize the damage. However, we felt a sense of responsibility that it was no longer possible to condone the mass spread of rumors, criticism, personal attacks, sexual harassment, and privacy violations that were coming with the personal photographs. Therefore, we would like to clarify that we are taking legal action to rectify the situation.
Alleged images of V of BTS and Jennie had been circulating online for months, fueling speculation that the two K-Pop singers were travelling together in secret and were frequently spotted together. While V and Jennie remained silent on the matter, ARMY and Blinks vehemently denied the rumours and demonstrated that it was primarily Photoshopped. Without mentioning V or Jennie in their statement, Big Hit said last week that they will be filing a lawsuit.
