Brave Entertainment taking legal action on malicious comments against Kim Samuel

Brave Entertainment announced that they will be taking legal action against anyone who makes malicious comments about Kim Samuel.

Kim Samuel has been the victim of receiving malicious comments after he appeared on Mnet‘s trainee survival show, Produce 101 season 2, and his agency Brave Entertainment will be taking legal action.

Brave Entertainment recently released a statement that outlined why they were taking legal action, and warned that anyone who spreads false rumors that personally attack him will be charged with cyber defamation of character and slander.

Below is a direct translation of Brave Entertainment’s statement:

“Hello. This is Brave Entertainment.

We have decided that the spreading of groundless rumors and the comments personally attacking Kim Samuel are too much for a young 16-year-old to endure, thus we will be taking strong legal action by criminally prosecuting those who leave malicious comments for charges of cyber defamation of character and slander.

We are currently gathering evidence of the high number of malicious comments and posts upon receiving suggestions from fans, and we will be taking the appropriate legal measures without mercy so that the same problems won’t occur for our other artists.

We will carry out our responsibilities as Kim Samuel’s guardians so that he isn’t hurt by the malicious comments, especially because he is still a minor. We hope you continue showing your love and support for Kim Samuel.”
