Kudos to Seulong and JYPE! Even if you expect this kind of thing to happen to celebrities, it doesn't mean you should by, and let people get away with it. If I were Suzy and my agency had just said "oh well, that's what happens" I would not have felt very cared for or respected! Do you guys think legal action is necessary?
