They added that the chat that was revealed on the news has been confirmed to be a personal chat between Yong Jun Hyung and Jung Joon Young. The chat was about Yong Joon Hyung asking about what happened to Jung Joon Young when he was formerly charged with illegally taken videos of his girlfriend.
The management continued in a firm attitude. They said, "We're planning to verify if the chatroom that was reported by SBS is true or not" "We're going to take legal actions strictly against anyone who constantly tarnishes the artist's reputation and cause harm to him by disseminating unconfirmed rumors and malicious comments on him regarding this issue".
