TWICE’s Jihyo recently issued a statement exposing the lengths a hacker has gone through on her personal account.
According to her, a hacker tried to access her personal information and even attempted to scam her family members for money. A screencap of the alleged conversation was posted on TWICE’s official Instagram account.
It also came with a warning saying:
“Recently, my Naver ID has been hacked and locked so cannot check my business e-mails. This was a message from my family this morning.
Are you pretending to be a celebrity so you can scam my family’s contact information? Do not be naughty in ways like this. I will not tolerate it twice. Take it easy.”
