SM Entertainment Draws Hard Line Against Cyberbullying

Lately, SM Entertainment’s artists have been the victims of cyberbullying - particularly Chanyeol from EXO, Taeyong from NCT, and Yeri from Red Velvet

A representative from SM Entertainment has recently filed complaints for defamation, insult, and other offenses against the netizens responsible at the Gangnam Police Station. The Gangnam Police Station has currently issued a warrant and is conducting an investigation.

In the past, SM Entertainment has filed for defamation of former f(x) member, Sulli. However, it has been revealed that they are pressing charges for a wider slew of offenses this time. 

Last year, SM Entertainment announced that they would respond strongly to netizens that defame or spread rumors about Taeyeon. The move was expected to have decreased the cyberbullying, and was the first warning for netizens.
