Nayeon's stalker is back in Korea, contacted Jeongyeon, JYPE discussing legal actions

Well, here we go again (unfortunately).

In case you forgot, back in late 2019/early 2020 reports of a German guy stalking Twice's Nayeon in Korea made headlines. He constantly followed the group, harassed them both online and offline and even leaked Chaeyoung's phone number. After trying to approach Nayeon on a flight from Japan to Korea and getting stopped by Twice's managers the whole group was put under police protection and JYPE announced legal action. He then went back to Germany and continued to upload videos proclaiming his love for Nayeon.

Now, with Covid restrictions getting lifted and just in time for Nayeon's birthday, he has made his way back to Korea. JYPE are aware of the situation and already put out a press statement, saying they're in contact with their legal team.

To make matters worse, the stalker somehow managed to get Jeongyeon's phone number and already started to contact her. She revealed this after a fan told her on Bubble to be careful of the situation and keep an eye on Nayeon.

While jype has responded somewhat swiftly (some other company should take note), it still feels like this isn’t urgent enough if this asshole is able to have access to Nayeon or the other members. I really think a restraining order should be the first thing before setting up for a case to throw his ass under the jail.

idk how the legal system works in Korea, but I do think the first incident should’ve been more than enough to some serious legal repercussions.

I've never not used my regular icon but this feels right. I have no idea how she doesn't have a restraining order. hope she and the other girlies stay safe.

There are situations where a restraining order could make the situation worse. He has said he believes JYP is keeping them apart against Nayeon's will and if he were given a restraining order he may just believe JYP is escalating and therefore he needs to try harder to reach Nayeon.

This is so scary.

I’m glad that jype responded quickly but I still don’t think it’s enough. I hope there’s much stronger legal action taken this time. I really hope the girls are safe.

I wish there was a way to throw him under the jail. just banning him from Korea doesn't work when TWICE and Nayeon travels internationally so much

I just saw his video on his yt and this man is seriously delusional and dangerous. Men entitlement knows no limits. I hope he's somewhat banned from stepping foot in South Korea because his behaviour is well documented and has put the girls at risk before. Idk what he expects from her because atp it's very clear that she's not gonna contact him no matter how much he begs for it. He's definitely mentally unstable :/

I'm surprised he's still allowed in Korea tbh.

Damn, this is awful. Poor Nayeon and the rest of the girls.

This dude is sick and needs to be put in jail! I hope JYPE gets to make a good case and protects Nayeon.

i worry for her :( hope and she and the twice members are ok this is so scary. jype and the police better take swift action!

foxmadperson 23rd-Sep-2022 02:18 pm (UTC)

WTF why is he still allowed to step foot in korea????

I’m very worried for her but I’m glad JYPE responded fast. It’s scary that they’ve been dealing with him for years. I’m not surprised they can’t him ban him since women’s protection is neglected in so many countries, and the recent post about a murder related to stalking shows how it’s not taken seriously.

I hop everything will be ok :((( Jeongyeon would deal with him personally if she could I’m sure

jfc someone needs to get rid of him once and for all.
cosmicdaze 24th-Sep-2022 04:24 am (UTC)
the universe needs to take him out, quickly.
myungung 24th-Sep-2022 04:23 pm (UTC)
I was not expecting the laws to help much since not many places would be able to outrightly ban him, because sadly he hasn't done anything heinous yet. praying for a final destination ending for him though
aures 25th-Sep-2022 11:32 am (UTC)
this is incredibly scary! i hope everybody is looking out for each other and I hope JYPE moves fast! better hire extra extra extra security

I hate that the legal system probably won't do anything until something bad happens. So scary.
