The netizen, "A," who spread vicious rumors about IU on the internet managed to avoid criminal punishment on the condition that "A" does community service.
Through a mediation procedure, "A" reached an agreement with IU's agency Loen Entertainment in which the latter would drop the charge if "A" did 200 hours of community service.
After the charge was dropped, the investigator of Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office terminated the case, saying there would be no right of arraignment in regards to "A."
In summary, last May, the netizen had written, "IU will be marrying a famous idol member," on the internet, spreading false rumors about the singer. The perpetrator was discovered last month through the IP address and was in the middle of investigation until this settlement was reached between the two parties.
The October 17 installment of JTBC's 'Ssul Jeon' discussed IU's settlement with the perpetrator who spread vicious rumors about her impending marriage to a male idol. It was decided that the charges would be dropped if the perpetrator did 200 hours of community service.
Heechul said, "When I asked her why she settled, she said she wanted to go all the way, but her company and other adults advised her they should let it go this once because it was the perpetrator's first time."
Another MC pointed out that the perpetrator kept making excuses to make his situation seem pitiable, saying things like things were not good at work and it appeared as if he were about to get a divorce. Heechul said that made IU even angrier and more convinced she had to see this through to the end. However, she ultimately listened to the adults and compromised.
Heechul asked her if he could reveal this information when he went on 'Ssul Jeon' and IU told him that this type of information was exactly what the program was for. The other MCs jokingly teased Heechul, calling him a reporter and thanking him for his hard work. IU also told him to say everything instead of trying to cover anything up for her and being criticized for it like in the Sulli incident.
IU boldly showed that she might look cute and pretty, but she was a strong force to be reckoned with if treated incorrectly!
