FNC Entertainment Files Police Report on Adult Site’s Use of AOA’s Mina’s Photo!

minah_feat-

FNC Entertainment has reached out to the police about the usage of AOA member Mina‘s photo on a pornographic site.

On July 12, FNC Entertainment announced that they have filed a report and requested an investigation by the Cyber Police on a foreign adult website. The website used a photo of Mina with the title “Like Chinese Women?” as an advertisement for their site. The photo is from a video for a “Love Letter Event” for AOA.

FNC Entertainment told the press, “We determined it would be more effective to file a police report than directly contact the foreign site. We have requested the cyber investigation team for this case and after the weekend our lawyers will meet with the local police for a formal investigation.

1. [+162, -6] Take legal action. That's the only solution.

2. [+120, -12] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ How did the journalist find this, while watching porn?

3. [+8, -0] Since it's America, I bet they could sue them for 10 million

4. [+8, -0] Amazed that the journalist went into that site to check...........

5. [+1, -0] Did the journalist randomly find it while on a porn site to relieve himself...

6. Sue them, Mina didn't use her hands like that for that reason

7. That famous picture... was a Korean idol? I always thought it was a Japanese idol

8. I bet the journalist was enjoying himself on that site until he realized 'wait, who's that' and wrote this article ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
