“Hello, this is Sublime Artist Agency (SAA).
We are aware of the existence of videos circulating recklessly about our artist, Rain (Jung Ji Hoon), that are based on completely false information.
Additionally, we have also checked a number of posts and comments that spread false information, defame our artist, attack him personally, criticize him maliciously, and spread unconfirmed rumours.
There are YouTubers who make up fake news in order to get views, and those who redistribute these false rumours even further. We will take all possible legal action against all of the above actions that harm our artist. We would like to inform you that there will be no lenience or cooperation as we pursue both civil and criminal liability in these cases.
Sublime Artist Agency will always try to protect the artists under our care.”
