Hello, this is Im Han Gyeol.
There are false rumors with no grounds being spread about me.
I’ve confirmed with my lawyer that creating false rumors and spreading it expansively is a crime. I’m in the process of preparing to take legal action.
Me, my family, and the people around me have been harmed greatly as a result of malicious comments and speculative articles. I plan to hold the creator of the malicious rumors, those who spread it, and those who left malicious comments responsible for their actions and take strong legal action. I earnestly ask you that you stop spreading speculations and malicious rumors.
