Fantagio, the agency of the group Astro, has stepped up to address the spread of malicious rumors surrounding the late Moonbin. On the 16th, Fantagio made a statement through a fan café, saying, “While we have been trying to handle this quietly, we have noticed numerous malicious posts of an extreme and serious nature. We have determined that we can no longer overlook this issue and have already taken legal measures.” They emphasized that they will continue to respond firmly without leniency to such incidents in the future.
Fantagio also stated that they will strengthen internal monitoring and continue with strong legal actions. They concluded by once again emphasizing that there will be no leniency in the process going forward.
Previously, Moonbin’s mother appealed to put a stop to the rumors and speculations surrounding her late son. She expressed her concerns about unfounded rumors causing harm to many people who sincerely mourn and miss her son, stating, “As a mother, it is very difficult for me to see these rumors that are not based on truth. I hope that my son will not be used as gossip, and I earnestly request that unconfirmed facts and rumors be not produced anymore.” She conveyed her plea despite the pain she was experiencing.
The late Moonbin, who left the world at such a young age, brought sorrow to everyone. However, the indiscriminate rumors and malicious posts targeting the deceased have caused significant harm to those left behind, including family, colleagues, and fans. This ultimately led Fantagio to take a stand against these actions.
