JYJ to Sue “Dispatch” for Defamation and Invasion of Privacy
Earlier this month, local news outlet “Dispatch” turned the Korean entertainment industry upside down by releasing an audio file of JYJ members physically and verbally abusing fans. Earlier today, “Dispatch” released another audio file involving the members of JYJ assaulting their “sasaeng” fans.
On March 20, C-Jes Entertainment officially announced its plans to sue “Dispatch” for defamation. According to a representative of C-Jes Entertainment, “‘Dispatch’ published these malicious articles specifically to hurt the members of JYJ. We have decided to take legal actions because we could no longer sit and watch these defamatory articles.” The rep added, “We have already prepared the documentations needed to sue for libel and will submit it to the court sometime today. The members of JYJ are still trying to recover from Park Yoo Chun’s father’s passing, and we simply cannot understand why anyone would want to release such things during this time.”
JYJ’s attorney stated, “The file was illegally recorded. Releasing the file without confirming it with the party involved is considered defamation and an invasion of privacy.
