Seulong is disgusted and JYPE is gonna get 'em!

2AM’s Im Seulong expressed his disgust at the netizen who harassed his labelmate Suzy of miss A on Twitter.

On December 24, he tweeted, “Imagine something like this happening to your family or seomone you care about. We’ll know more after investigation, but if a public figure, who had power and influence, this something like this to someone else, I wouldn’t stop until things are made right. “

Over the weekend, one netizen tweeted an obscene photo of an unidentified man with a life-size cardboard cut-out of Suzy. JYP Entertainment announced that they have reported the incident to the Cyber Crimes Agency and will take legal action against the netizen.

Recently, a photo with the intention of sexually harassing miss A’s Suzy has been uploaded on the internet, shocking and disgusting netizens. On December 22, a male netizen tweeted an obscene photo to the singer . He also wrote the word “skate,” a malicious term used to show contempt to the people from Jeolla Province.

On December 24, JYP Entertainment announced that they would take legal action against the uploader for sexually harassing Suzy, who is still a minor. A representative of JYPE stated, “Before she is a celebrity, Suzy is a woman and a minor. We are going to send a request for investigation to the cyber crimes agency.

Netizens who saw the photo commented, “That’s disgusting,” “That person should go to jail,” How could he,” “Suzy must have been shocked when she saw that photo,” They should sue him,” and more.

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?

The pic is rude but really it's the slur he's used for which he deserves to get his ass handed to him.

"He also wrote the word “skate,” a malicious term used to show contempt to the people from Jeolla Province"

I don't get it...Can someone explain ><
purekpopology 25th-Dec-2012 12:21 am (UTC)
Someone else might have a better explanation, but from what I know "skate" is a type of fish that is caught in the Jeolla Province. When it's fermented it smells like pee and tastes REALLY odd (most people don't like it to eat it, only a few do), and so my guess is it's turned into rude slang for a person from that area.

well most ppl ((residin in korea)) that i know think that ppl from jeolla have the worst attitudes, and its usually the mutual hate between ppl frm gyeongsang nd jeolla, but its not hard((based on how jeolla ppl are generalized)) to define what province someone is from.

Smfh gross, he must've been jealous about her tweets with hat Ian boy.
soramai 25th-Dec-2012 11:26 am (UTC)
no, it's because she said on twitter to watch "26 years" the movie and some people didn't like it. At least that's what i read on netizen buzz.

Boy, it's okay to have sexual perversions as long it dosen't bring anybody harm. Posting it on twitter, stupid move, ass.
wondermusume 25th-Dec-2012 01:59 pm (UTC)
so let me get this straight he tweeted that obscene pic to suzy because she tweeted saying to watch 26 years and he didn't like it? the heck.

that picture makes me so freaking mad! it's disgusting. hope he gets what's coming to him.

Saying you would sexually assault someone bc they wanted to watch a movie they don't like isnt a sexual perversion though. That's a threat.

I wish this article came with like a second link bc this makes it look like this dood was being gross and impolite instead of being scary as all hell.

i swear if jyp accepts a settelment i will go there and rip them both to shreds
