SM Entertainment issues stern warning after NCT’s Haechan faces trespassing at his residence
According to the Korean tabloid Soompi, on March 6, SM Entertainment released a statement regarding a recent issue involving trespassing into NCT member Haechan’s residence. In their statement, SM Entertainment issues a stern warning stating that they will take legal action with zero tolerance against those who invade artists’ privacy. The agency began their statement writing, "We are giving our position regarding the recent increase in actions that severely invade the private lives of NCT members.”
“The members have been suffering severely due to the continuation of [actions such as] visiting places related to the NCT members’ daily lives without authorization and waiting for them, following their vehicles, excessively contacting or photographing the members within the airport security zone including on-board the plane, illegally acquiring personal information and attempting to contact them indiscriminately, and spreading malicious rumors,” they continued.
SM further added, “In particular, at the end of November last year, there was a trespassing incident at Haechan’s residence with a so-called “sasaeng” (referring to those who invade the personal lives of celebrities). As Haechan is living with his family, not only Haechan but also his family have complained about receiving considerable psychological damage.
The trespassing “sasaeng” has been indicted by the prosecution, and although [the case] was wrapped up generously without criminal punishment according to Haechan’s wishes, it revealed the seriousness of the issue of invading the privacy of artists, and we decided to reveal this situation with the means of making a warning so that a problem such as this no longer occurs.”
The agency noted that “this is a stalking crime that causes severe harm to not only the individual but their family and the acquaintances around them. We hope that the “sasaengs” immediately stop infringing on the artists’ private lives. Going forward, we will severely deal with illegal actions such as the housebreaking of “saesaengs,” leaking of personal information, and stalking with zero tolerance.”
SM concluded the statement firmly stating that they will take strong legal action against those who get involved in such “shameful events.”
