    IU Suing YouTuber For Sexual Harassment And Defamation

    April 11, 2017

    IU will be taking legal action against a YouTuber, who, during a recent live broadcast, made sexual comments about the singer. The YouTuber (hereafter referred to as “A”) said, in response to a question asking if he likes his dog or IU, “Of course I like IU. I can’t help myself. Why? Because a pet can’t give me ***, but IU can.” He continued, “Because life is sex… you can understand, if you’re a man. That’s life.”

    When a viewer commented that he could get sued for his comments, he responded, “If IU were to sue me, it would be an honor. Then I could meet IU in court. If I tell her I’m her fan, she’ll let me go. If I meet IU, we can talk and she’ll forgive me, so it’s a win.”

    Fave Entertainment, IU’s agency, is filing an official lawsuit, having decided that the severity of the slander should not be overlooked, and said that there will be no leniency.

    Following news of the lawsuit, A posted a video explaining that he was purely joking, and that through transcribing what he said, news articles have made him look like the bad guy because the original, joking tone in which he delivered the lines in question was not expressed. “People who regularly watch my show will know this, but I say a lot of sexual comments, and make a lot of these types of jokes.”

    “What caused the problem was that I’m always gushing about IU. ‘I really like IU,’ ‘IU’s my ideal type.’ I always say things like this, so a viewer asked me if I like my dog more, or IU. I said of course IU, and made a sexual joke. With the [headlines that reporters wrote about this], there’s no way people aren’t going to misunderstand. People who watch my show just laugh and move on. Because there’s no real meaning behind what I said.”

    Continuing, A said, “Honestly, there’s nothing for me to even explain. It’s because I really like IU. I really really like IU. F***, I’ve had IU as my phone background for six years now. I did it because I just like IU so much, what am I supposed to do?” Apologizing, he said he had no intentions of belittling IU or any ill sexual intent. “It’s not like we’ll ever meet, anyway. I apologize. Everything is my fault, and I’ll be more careful in the future.”

    There is a truth here that's repeatedly removed by moderator for five times or so. The truth is the bastard doing sexual harassment and defamation of Korean star IU had to apologize for his belittling action. It is a crime.

    K-pop stars take stern action against fans' extravagant behaviors
    By Kim Jae-heun

    K-pop stars are suffering from their fans’ bad behavior. Many stars had ignored such rudeness in the past but they are now deciding to take legal action on the issue.

    Popular singer-songwriter IU said she will sue a man who made sexual remarks about her on YouTube recently, claiming to be her fan. Although the male fan posted an apology, IU said that she will not halt the suit.


    Fans give a hard time to their idols at meet-and-greets as well.

    K-pop girl group GFriend recently caught a man videotaping the members with a hidden camera attached to his glasses. Band member Yerin realized the fan was secretly recording them and notified an agency official immediately.

    The agency announced it has identified the man and will limit his participation in GFriend’s future fan meeting events.

    New idol group Pristin also became the target of an obsessive fan at a recent fan meeting held at Mokdong Youth Center in Yangcheon-gu, southwestern Seoul, Sunday.

    An anonymous man said he won the lottery to join the girl group’s meeting and posted on an online community that he would confess his love to Chinese member Kyulkyung with a sketchbook full of skull drawings and messages of affection.

    Pristin’s agency caught the person at the event as he was opening the sketchbook.

    “The girl band’s manager took away the sketchbook instantly, so we did not have a huge problem,” the agency official said. “Other fans told us about the man and our guards observed his behavior.”

    Some entertainment companies are asking fans to be respectful of their favorite bands at meetings and to avoid touching singers or swearing at them. Agencies have also asked fans not to video or record them when receiving autographs.

    An entertainment insider said fans have asked to ink marriage registration forms, sent condoms to girl group members as gifts and shouted curses at singers.

    In 2006, singer U-Know Yunho was hospitalized after drinking a vitamin drink that he received from a female fan. She had added glue to the drink.

    Seriously i don't recognise them at all although i do watch Korean dramas. Maybe those i watch on TV are not so current and frankly there are so many of them, especially the young ones, so i can only recognise a few faces.

    Very good that IU decided to still sue the bastard that made sexual remarks about her despite his apology. It is a crime and he deserved to go to jail for that.
