Internet trolls charged in cases involving IU

Singer-songwriter IU's agency EDAM Entertainment says those who made malicious comments against the artist have been charged.

The agency uploaded a statement to its social media Tuesday and shared an update on the legal case involving the internet trolls. "Most of the offenders were found to have several previous records of making insulting comments and posts," it said.

It also revealed that another round of legal complaints was filed against more comments defaming the artist. "Just like the first round, we will make sure they are held accountable, with no leniency or negotiation," the agency said.

It also said reports from fans have been a great help in monitoring the hateful comments surfacing online. "We will continue to take legal action based on the sources that the fans send us," the agency said. "So we ask for your further cooperation," adding it will do its best to combat the posts.

Meanwhile, IU recently confirmed that she will take a lead role in the new drama film "Dream" (tentative title) that co-stars Park Seo-joon.
