Singer Kang Daniel is suing online trolls for the 4th time .

Kang Daniel’s management company Connect Entertainment posted on the official website on the 18th, “We have collaborated with Liu Law Firm from April 2020 to make efforts to deal with malicious postings such as online slander and defamation of our artist Kang Daniel. We are running a clean internet center.”

“We have informed that on July 24, 2020, we have filed a third complaint with the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office against malicious comments targeting at Kang Daniel. Regarding the complaints received, it is in the stage of completing the statement of the complainant, and an investigation is underway.”

At the same time, the agency added, “With the release of the artist’s album ‘MAGENTA’ on August 3, 2020, we have strengthened the monitoring of the Clean Internet Center specially for one month. As the artist resumes activities, there is a concern that false facts and acts of spreading malicious rumors will increase. Accordingly, malicious posts have been caught more closely, warnings and requests for deletion have been taken. The fourth complaint was filed with the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office on September 10, 2020, for cases that were deemed difficult to do. We are going to hold legal responsibilities until the end, including a claim for civil damages, even for the bad guys who were the subject of the 4th complaint.”

In addition, it also said, “Unless the reckless behavior of bad comments against artists is eradicated, we will continue to monitor the perpetrators and respond strongly through complaint procedures.”

Hello, this is Connect Entertainment.

We would like to express our deep gratitude for the interest and love of the fans to Kang Daniel, Artist of Connect Entertainment.

We have been operating the Clean Internet Center in cooperation with Liu Law Firm from April 2020 to make efforts to cope with malicious postings such as online slander and defamation of our artist Kang Daniel.

Regarding the artist’s abusers, we have informed that on July 24, 2020, we have filed a third complaint with the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office. Regarding the complaints filed, the complainant’s statement has been completed, and an investigation is currently underway.

Meanwhile, with the release of the artist’s album ‘MAGENTA’ on August 3, 2020, we have specifically strengthened the monitoring of the Clean Internet Center for one month. As the artist resumes activities, there is a concern that the spread of false facts and malicious rumors by internet trolls will increase. Accordingly, malicious posts have been caught more closely, warnings and requests for deletion have been taken. On September 10, 2020, the Company filed a fourth complaint with the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office on the case that it was deemed difficult to condone. We plan to hold legal responsibilities until the end, including claims for civil damages, even for the bad guys who were the subject of the 4th complaint.

As long as the reckless behavior of bad comments against artists is not eradicated, we will continue to respond strongly through monitoring and complaint procedures against perpetrators. We ask for continued reporting, interest, and support to fans as well.

Thank you.
