South Korean actor Bae Yong Joon will take legal action against the social media users, who wrote negative comments about his wedding with K-Pop princess Park Soo Jin.
The marriage ceremony became a topic of discussion after a person attending the event uploaded a video of the celebrity couple on social media.
The leaked clip showing some private moments of the newlyweds captured the attention of netizens and was criticised by many.
Several popular personalities, including producer-cum-musician JY Park, raised their voices against making private moments of Yong Joon and Soo Jin public. Following this, the uploader apologised and stated that it was his mistake to post the video online.
However, some social media users wrote malicious comments against the celebrity couple. And now, the actor is planning to take legal action against them through his entertainment agency, KeyEast Entertainment.
The firm released an official statement about the lawsuit, which read:
After reports of their marriage, there were many comments that were continuous posted by certain individuals ranging from ten to over hundreds of comments that were defaming him. There were some netizens who were using the same IDs to repeatedly spread false rumors and leave vulgar comments without hesitation and that Bae Yong Joon will be taking lawful steps to deal with these netizens and will continue to do so in the future.
The entertainment agency even revealed that they will show no mercy to those who wrote hateful comments about the actor, according to Koreaboo.
