FNC Entertainment has announced legal action against those using Yoo Jae Suk‘s name and image for profit.
FNC Entertainment has released a statement announcing legal action against those who spread misinformation about Yoo Jae Suk. The announcement came after misinformation began spreading about his involvement with Running Man’s live fan-meeting event in Taipei.
The event is set to be held on February 10th without Yoo Jae Suk in attendance due to prior commitments. However, it seems that there are false claims stating he will still be attending in order to profit off fans.
Here’s what FNC Entertainment had to say about the matter:
Hello, this is FNC Entertainment.
This is an announcement regarding the ‘Running Man’ Fan Meeting due to be held on February 10th in Taipei.
Due to an inevitable schedule, we have previously announced that Yu Jae Seok will unfortunately not be able to participate in this event. However, recently there have been false claims that Yu Jae Seok will be attending, causing many fans confusion and we wish to correct the issue to prevent any disadvantages for fans.
Yu Jae Seok and FNC Entertainment have never delegated this event to a 3rd party. Nevertheless, there have been companies making illegal profit by spreading false claims that they have been delegated Yu Jae Seok’s portrait rights.
Evidence of those releasing false claims to make any illegal profit are currently being collected. FNC Entertainment will take strong measures and legal action against those who are caught.
We appreciate all fans for their ongoing love and support towards Yu Jae Seok and ‘Running Man’. Although Yu Jae Seok cannot participate in this fan meeting, he will be supporting the members with all his heart. Thank you.
