IVE’s Agency Fights Back Against YouTuber Attacks

To protect their artists, K-pop girl group IVE’s agency, Starship Entertainment, has taken a firm stand against YouTubers who have been creating harmful content aimed at their talents, including IVE.

The agency officially announced on June 25, revealing its decisive action.

This isn’t the first time Starship Entertainment has addressed this issue.

In October 2022, they took legal action against individuals responsible for making malicious comments, resulting in significant penalties, including six months of imprisonment, employment restrictions, and being listed on the sex offender registry.

Taking it a step further, the agency has been actively pursuing both criminal and civil suits since November 2022, even extending the legal battle overseas.

In May 2023, they secured an information provision order from the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. They gained valuable insights about the ‘Sojang’ channel manager from Google headquarters in the United States.

However, the situation took a curious turn when ‘Sojang’ claimed their channel was hacked and subsequently deleted all existing videos, followed by an apology right after Google notified them about the information provision order.

Despite this setback, Starship Entertainment remains vigilant and committed to safeguarding its artists’ rights, reputation, privacy, and human rights.

They’ve implemented a robust monitoring system to detect and prevent any further malicious attacks, and they promise to pursue legal action relentlessly against anyone causing harm to their artists.
