Wanna One's agency asks fans to stop violating members' privacy# K-POP 2018.02.13 View : 1750
On February 13, Wanna One's agency YMC Entertainment posted a statement titled "Request Regarding the Protection of Privacy of Wanna One's Members" on the official fan cafe.
The statement concerns the actions of certain fans, or saesaengs rather, that are invading the members' privacy.
Below is the full statement of YMC Entertainment:
Hello, this is YMC Entertainment.
We express our sincere gratitude to all the Wannables who give generous support and love to Wanna One.
We have released similar statements already, but we'd like to make a request to certain fans who are causing harm to Wanna One's members.
Recently, due to certain fans who acquire personal information of Wanna One's members by illegal means and attempt to contact them whether it's day or night, not only Wanna One's schedule is affected, but the members are having trouble with sleeping and living their daily lives. The artists are under heavy stress.
Please keep in mind that trying to call the artist or sending texts and messages is a violation of an individual's privacy. We ask you to stop such actions that ruin the artists' valuable lives.
Also, using the safety of Wanna One's members as an excuse to send threats or false information to the agency's staff and installing location tracking devices on their vehicles to follow them to private schedules cause disruption to the schedule and threaten the safety of the members.
We ask for your cooperation so that Wanna One's members no longer receive mental distress due to improper behavior of certain fans.
