K-pop fans are generally an awesome bunch of people on the whole, but there are always those few people who ruin it for everyone. And now due to some overzealous GOT7fans, JYP Entertainment have enforced a strict set of blacklist rules.
In a new post on the official GOT7 fan website, JYP stated that illegal invasion of privacy is now becoming a problem and the company have issued out a set of new, stricter blacklist rules for overzealous fans. Not only are there rules about waiting and taking photos of GOT7 outside the group's accommodations, continued invasions of privacy will be met with legal action.
This isn't the first time that JYP have enforced blacklist rules, having done so back in May and December of 2016, but it appears that these warning have gone unnoticed by some fans.
Here's JYP's message in full:
Hello, this is JYPE.
After we announced the Intensified Blacklist Rules (goo.gl/7wMYCf) on May 30th 2016, we additionally announced the Primary Warning List (goo.gl/Q7bwcn) of those who uploaded pictures which were taken at the area after immigration inspection and at private schedule.
However, until now, illegal invasion of privacy is being continued.
Especially, in front of the members' "Accommodation",
- lying in wait
- watching secretly
- recording and filming without permission
- trespassing into the accommodation/parking lot
- touching them or chasing them closely on their individual path
- making or helping someone do the illegal actions described above
About the invasion of privacy and personal rights, and also about the residents' discomfort due to illegal actions happening above, we notice you that we will take strong legal action according to Criminal Law and the Punishment of Minor Offenses Act.
For every related issues, we will take similar strong legal action.
What are your thoughts on the stricter GOT7 blacklist rules?
