On December 8, the agency released another statement regarding the invasion of SEVENTEEN’s privacy.Pledis Entertainment addresses SEVENTEEN members’ privacy invasion; to take legal action
The agency wrote in the statement, “Despite the release of previous notices, we are still witnessing continuous unauthorized entering into artists’ private spaces other than venues officially announced as SEVENTEEN’s official activity (living spaces, hotels, hair and make-up shops etc.) and invasion of artists’ privacy within the airport’s security zones.”
The statement continued, “There have been severe cases of invasion of privacy especially during the recent tour, such as waiting at the artists’ hotel, trying to break and enter the hotel room, coming excessively close to the artist and attempting to make conversation during their travel within the airport security zones including inside the aircrafts.”
“Such repeated actions are inflicting mental pain on the artists. Not only those engaging in such behaviors (will) be perpetually blacklisted from participating in all fan activities related to SEVENTEEN without a prior warning, but our company will also take necessary legal actions against them using the evidence we have collected through CCTV footage and monitoring initiatives.”
Concluding the statement, the agency wrote, “We will continue to strive to create a healthy fan culture and protect the safety and rights of our artists. We promise that we will take the strongest measures possible to any actions that violate their rights.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, SEVENTEEN made their return to the concert stage in June this year with their “BE THE SUN” world tour. After 19 shows in North America and Southeast Asia, the performance powerhouse wrapped up the Japanese leg of their world tour earlier in December.
