The agency applies a comprehensive manner in collecting evidence related to the artists, involving malicious posts on social media and online communities, and this covers domestic and overseas areas.

Evidence has also been collected through the fans’ reports, and by implementing all professional methods such as the assistance from domestic and foreign law firms.”

SOURCE MUSIC then announced that a wide range of posts and comments have been compiled and sent to the investigative authorities.

In addition to this, an official complaint has been filed with investigative authorities against malicious posts and comments on international platforms, as well as the managers of those channels.
