The King: Eternal Monarch star Lee Min Ho to take legal action against malicious commenters

The King: Eternal Monarch actor Lee Min Ho is taking legal actions against unlawful and malicious comments. The actor's legal representative LIWU issued a statement to reveal that they are monitoring malicious comments posted against the Legend of the Blue Sea actor. The film is monitoring comments and posts of senseless personal attacks, sexual harassment, the spreading of false information, and malicious rumors. They are monitoring posts and comments posted by people on various platforms to compile evidence and making complaints.  

The law firm has also added that they are receiving information through Lee Min Ho's agency MYM Entertainment's email. Via Soompi, the statement reads, "The law firm LIWU is currently monitoring unlawful posts (malicious comments) regarding MYM Entertainment actor Lee Min Ho that contain senseless personal attacks, sexual harassment, the spreading of false information, and malicious rumors." 

"We are in the process of compiling evidence of malicious comments by people who have posted online on places such as DC Inside, cafes, and blogs, advising or requesting deletion, building up data on malicious commenters, and making criminal complaints. We are also collecting evidence and building a list of malicious commenters based on information received through the e-mail address from MYM below, so we are hoping to receive a lot of information," the statement added. 

On the work front, the actor was last seen in The King: Eternal Monarch. The SBS drama marked Lee Min Ho's first series since his return from the mandatory military training. The South Korean heartthrob is yet to announce his next project. 

Stay tuned to Pinkvilla for more updates.

Then he asked me to download hangouts on Gmail because he felt I was special and different. There was something that attracted him. We started chatting. He wanted to know my country, age, job, family members, etc,. We would chat just one to two minutes from then on. It was mostly him praising me. asking me for my photo and then praising me on it, then told about his breakup with his girlfriend who cheated on him and didn't want to go through the same again. Told me he loved me and asked me not to break his heart. This went on for a week. I felt the emotion too and we exchanged all lovey-dovey messages. When the emotions escalated one week later, suddenly he said he is sad. The reason is his charity to Western Africa has a shortfall. So he wants me to contribute. I told him I can't because lockdown has put me in a difficult situation. After that, it was a low exchange of messages but still love-filled. Another week passes, messages have become fewer and sometimes long gaps. He says he's too busy, no time for himself. He sends me many photos, but later I see them in the media. I had a hunch from the beginning that something was wrong. But took the face value not to disrespect him. Once he sent a link and asked me to share it with my groups. I did and found that it had another name Abubakar and this person works in Paradise hotel i

The person never answered any telling questions but continuously tried to butter me up. I blocked them before I got really mad with them.

Totally upsetting for me, I was Naive to think it was for real upto the point of asking for a loan to help pay for court costs. Feel so sorry that the real Lee Min Ho has to go through this, it must be so stressful for him.

They are so jealous because they are incapable of success and becoming popular and thus they turn malicious. LMH you are the greatest actor, singer and model and you are talented and really capable of acting and performing. Your films and stage performances are enjoyed by all your thousands of fans all over the world and the movies and songs are more value added due to your handsome looks, your sweet smile and your simple charming personality. Do not get deterred by these idiots. We your fans are always behind you to support you. Continue your career without hesitation but by all means take legal action to punish the wrong doers. May God bless you and give you strength. Saranghae from Sri Lanka.

I do not blame the shippers’s wishful thinking about the couple as long as they do not invade their privacy. But I do agree the haters should be stopped. All the cruel criticisms are hurtful and untrue.

Demeaning others, to make yourself feel superior is a also wrong. I understand that TV/Movie Stars or any public figure is going to get good and bad attention, but they're still human beings and are protected under the same laws. My personal thoughts are this. If I don't enjoy watching a certain show or celebrity, I watch something else. Why waste my time and energy focusing on anything I don't enjoy. Lee Min Ho is a enjoyable young person to watch. So I look forward to seeing his new projects. From Idaho USA. God Bless!

Anonymous : *HOW TO REPORT TO MYMxLIWU* These are the steps to follow-> 1. Make a pdf copy of the article (where the malicious comments are left) including the URL, TITLE of article, DATE of posting and TIME of posting. These 4 details MUST be visible. A pdf format is more preferred than a screenshot. 2. Copy the URL and paste it in the body of your email also. (The lawfirm has to record these and typing it out from every single pdf report will be very time-consuming) 3. Send this report-mail to protect@mym-ent.com. 4. Attach ONLY ONE pdf per mail. If you have multiple reports, send multiple mails for each one of them separately. Once again, E-mail: protect@mym-ent.com Go Minoz! We can bring the change!
