JYJ has decided to file a lawsuit against news portal Dispatch for defamation of character after they made allegations of violence against saesang fans.
Back in March, Dispatch wrote an article claiming they had obtained audio files of group members Jaejoong and Yoochun cussing out and getting violent towards saesang fans. An alleged interview with fans was used to further support their claims.
"Publicly revealing an illegally recorded audio file without confirming with those involved first and revealing their real names is considered to be defamation of character and a violation of privacy," JYJ's legal team stated.
JYJ's lawsuit asks for 100 million KRW ($88,355 USD) for damages as well as the removal of the article and its audio files. They will be fined 3 million KRW ($2,650 USD) for every day they do not comply.
JYJ originally filed a criminal case in March when the controversial article came out. However, it was decided that a civil lawsuit was better suited for the situation and have retracted their previous lawsuit.
