Hello, this is KONNECT Entertainment. We have previously stated that we would take strong legal action without any agreement or precaution against malicious postings such as defamation, sexual harassment, invasion of privacy, and the spread of false information regarding Kang Daniel. We are here to inform you the progress of the legal action as of December 16.

 

 

Back in September, a complaint of all the data collected by us and fans was submitted to the Gangnam Police Station regarding the violation of Article 311 of the Criminal Act, which can lead to a sentence of up to a year in prison or a fine of 2 million won (~$1700 USD). As of December 16, we have filed additional complaints that we have found. Just like the first round, we will not make any agreements and continue strong legal action.

Additionally, the first rounds of investigations are at its final stage. Thanks to everyone for understanding and we hope that you will understand that we cannot release more information until the investigation is completed. Lastly, we would like to thank all the fans who have sent us emails regarding this situation. After the first round of complaints, we received over 4,000 reports in the course of three months. We will continue to take action against malicious commenters and make sure legal action and repay fans for all their support and hard work.
