Korean news portal YTN Sports reported that Big Hit Entertainment will be taking action on the case involving their artiste Jungkook (정국)’s alleged dating scandal to the court.
To refresh everyone’s memory, the 22-year-old was involved in a rumour with a tattooist known as Lee Mijoo (이미주) after photos of the couple were spread online.
Big Hit quickly came out with their statement – ultimately denying all the rumours and allegations. They also issued a warning that they’ll take legal action against the person responsible for spreading the photos.
The CCTV footage was believed to be leaked by an employee working at a local karaoke centre in Geoje Island. In addition, the tattoo artiste involved in the scandal revealed that she’ll be following the agency’s footsteps by bringing this case to the court as well.
The individual will be charged for defamation as well as violation of the Personal Information Protection Act. Big Hit responded to the reports by stating, “We don’t have anything else to say that’s different from our original statement.”
In the meantime, the multi-platinum group BTS successfully wrapped their concert tour in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia this past weekend.
