YG Collects Evidence and Responses Hard-line Without Prejudice
It is drawing attention that the Thai Embassy in Seoul is known to have delivered information on the personal threat to Lisa, a Thai member of the famous K-pop girl group BLACKPINK, to her agency.
According to the Bangkok Post, a daily newspaper, on the 8th, the Thai Embassy in Seoul wrote on its official Twitter account the previous day that it received many emails and Twitter messages on May 2-6 regarding the personal threat posed to Lisa.
An official at the Thai Embassy in Seoul confirmed through a phone call and e-mail with Yonhap News Agency that the embassy posted the information on its official Twitter account, saying it was correct, and that it delivered the related information to YG.
The embassy explained that the move was helped by the Thai Embassy because Lisa was Thai.
Asked by Yonhap News Agency, YG said, “YG is taking the best measures for the safety and protection of artists and fans,” adding, “We are aware of this issue as well, and we will collect and review evidence through regular monitoring data as well as reports from fans and take strong action without leniency.”
Lisa, a native of Thailand, is popular as she works as various advertising models in her country.
BLACKPINK is scheduled to make its first comeback in one year and two months in June.
