No matter how you view it, the latest action of JYPE is meant to silence the fans who are angry at the six members of 2PM for turning their backs on Jaebum.
Today, JYPE posted a notice on the JYPE website and wrote that it is seeking the help of the police in hunting down netizens who allegedly obtained “citizen registration number” of 2PM members.
Who cares about their “citizen registration number”?
Here’s a translation of the JYPE announcement:
“After announcing on February 25th that Jaebeom would be no longer a part of 2PM, a few netizens started to attack the six members by saying inappropriate things and spreading rumours about them. We have talked to the six members to figure out how to deal with the problem, but decided that we need to understand the fans who have been notified of something that they cannot easily accept. The members said that they will handle their personal feelings better in future and be warmer in their approaches to the fans.
“Some have however illegally obtained personal information about the six members including their citizen registration number and have been distribution and misusing those information. In order to protect the members, we had no choice but to approach the police for the six members on this matter.
“We would like to thank the fans who are supporting the six members in a time like this.” (from AKP)
What I’d like to know is why JYP is notorious for trashing his artists–HyunA, Sunmi and then Jaebum.
