T-ara’s agency Core Contents Media plans to take strong legal measures against seven media outlets that reported on internet posts without checking the truthfulness of its contents.
On August 3, a rep
from Core Contents Media said, “We have appointed two lawyers to form a
case against media outlets that took posts off of the internet and
reported on them without checking with the agency or the writer of the
post, causing great backlash in society. From August 6, the legal
processions will start.”
to Core Contents Media, the media outlets being sued in this action
reported on the post written by an ‘agency trainee’, the post written by
‘T-ara’s backup dancer’, tweets by Kim Kwang Soo himself, edited
versions of Hwa Young’s tweets and other unchecked internet posts.
rep added, “Because media outlets reported on unfiltered posts and
videos related to the T-ara ‘outcast’ incident, the situation became
even more aggravated. Media outlets should please make sure they report
only on checked facts not only for this incident, but for others.”
T-ara plans to continue with individual activities after cancelling its concert that was originally to be held on August 11.
