PLEDIS Entertainment’s website has been hacked.
The website of PLEDIS Entertainment, home of groups such as Seventeen, NU’EST, and formerly PRISTIN, was notably altered on January 24.
A notice was written on the page asking for “Justin for Pristin and Other Groups”, leading many to believe that an angry Pristin fan was responsible.
The hacker called out the company for being “the worst entertainment in the K-Pop industry”, writing that “PRISTIN deserved better”.
Nonsensical words were further written as a disruption to the normally serious website.
Even the front page was subtely changed.
Netizens found the entire ordeal hilarious.

They were also surprised that the company had yet to fix the damage even hours after it began.
