On June 28, BTS’ agency BIGHIT MUSIC issued an official statement regarding the legal proceedings against a bunch of organizations accused of defamation, obstruction of business, unauthorized use of rights, and more.

The agency stated that ‘we have collected evidence on those who participated in the organized rumor-mongering efforts and included them on the complaints’. As the company cited their swift legal actions against violating the group’s rights and malicious comments they have provided details against all the cases.

BIGHIT MUSIC clarified that the agency and BTS have no connection with Body & Brain (formerly known as Dahn Yoga). This brain education organization (also referred to as an alleged cult by many) was discovered violating the K-pop group’s intellectual property rights. 

The band’s agency revealed that they promptly demanded the removal of the content in question and received a commitment that will prevent further such occurrences. BIGHIT vowed to take decisive legal actions should similar issues arise in the future.
