Kim Hee-chul of K-pop act Super Junior underwent a two-hour police investigation on Friday as an accuser, after lodging a complaint against online trolls for allegedly defaming and insulting him. "Kim went to Seoul Gangnam Police Station (for investigation,)" a spokesperson for the singer's agency Label SJ said Friday.
The K-pop star and his fans had collected a slew of malicious comments against him for three months. On July 21, Kim filed the complaint with Seoul Central Prosecutors' Office. He uploaded a photo of the complaint on his Instagram on July 22, saying, "There will be no mercy. Even if I seek a settlement, all the money will go to my lawyers."
Following the investigation, Kim told the local media outlet JoongAng Ilbo that he accused dozens of people. "I collected tens of thousands of negative comments but didn't have enough time to organize them all," he said. "I will track down as many people as possible in the coming days. Online trolls have harassed a lot of people and made them shed tears ― so they should be punished."
Kim debuted as a member of Super Junior in 2005 with the album "SuperJunior 05." He is appearing on JTBC's popular show "Knowing Bros." A follow up to this post
