On September 18, DSP Media released a statement regarding the malicious comments made towards their artists. The agency said to take legal action against the malicious commenters.
DSP Media said,”Recently we’ve recognized the severity of the situation as we come across crude insults about our label artists and groundless cases of defamation of a member.

We’re preparing a legal response.”
The agency also added,”We’ll be taking strong legal action against malicious defamation and posts with groundless false information about our artists as well as the act of spreading this information starting on September 18, 2019 at 5PM when this notice is released.”
