Blackpink's agency took legal action against the spread of private photos of BLACKPINK's Jennie and BTS's V being circulated online.

YG Entertainment announced that it had officially requested the police last month to investigate the person who first distributed Blackpink Jennie's 'personal photo'.

YG Entertainment said, "We have refrained from commenting and expressing our position in order to minimize further damage." He explained the reason for the investigation.

He added, "Repeatedly posting unconfirmed content or writing excessively malicious posts was also sued and reported for defamation under the Information and Communications Network Act, violation of the ban on illegal information distribution, and obscenity using communication media."

YG Entertainment urged people to refrain from sharing photos circulated online regardless of their intentions, as sharing them constitutes a secondary offense.

Jenny and V's dating rumors were raised online after witnessing a trip to Jeju Island in May, but the agencies of both sides did not respond.

Since then, it seems that Jennie's agency has responded to the widespread distribution of photos of her private life that are believed to have been hacked into Jenny's cell phone.
