WINNER’s Nam Tae Hyun’s fan club files charges against hateful commenters

New details have come to light regarding the recent inundation of WINNER‘s fan page with malicious comments.

An insider has divulged new information regarding the malicious comments that have been flooding WINNER’s fan pages as of late. According to the insider, WINNER perused the comments posted by WINNER’s fan club, WINNER’s Circle, for the past four months and identified many of the commenters. In particular, Nam Tae Hyun seems to have been targeted most heavily by the anti-fans, and these individuals are the ones who have been reported.

Nam Tae Hyun is no stranger to malicious online comments. From his debut, many anti-fans have focused on and spread rumors regarding his pre-debut private life, surmising that he was forced to transfer out of his school. Because of these attempts to publicly embarrass him, members of WINNER’s Circle decided to take tangible action against these cyber-bullies, organizing amongst themselves to collect the hateful comments, collect the reporting and filing fees, and bringing these reports to the authorities.

The primary rumor at the center of this controversy surrounds Nam Tae Hyun’s sudden transfer from Hanam Shinpyeong Middle School to Seoul Han San Middle School. According to a netizen claiming to be a former classmate of Nam’s, Nam was known to “rule” over his classmates with an iron fist, often committing physical acts of violence against his classmates. As a result, the netizen said, Nam Tae Hyun was forced to transfer to Seoul Han San Middle School. Adding fuel to the fire was the fact that Nam Tae Hyun has also come under attack for his allegedly disrespectful speech at concerts.

Nam Tae Hyun is currently starring in the web drama Girl at 0 A.M. Although his performances have been well-received, much of the attention has been diverted to the continuing online battles regarding his pre-debut past. Fans and critics alike predict that without an official statement or clarification from YG Entertainment, this controversy may continue to spiral out of control and eventually get blown far too out of proportion to be managed.

Nam Tae Hyun recently stated that WINNER will be making a comeback in the latter half of 2015. In the meantime, check out the netizens’ reaction to Nam Tae Hyun’s fan club filing charges against haters on his behalf:
