Big Hit Entertainment have reportedly taken legal action against the party responsible for leaking CCTV footage of Jungkook that was taken during his personal vacation time.
According to a report by YTN, the agency is suing the source of the leaked footage with charges of defamation and violation of the Personal Information Protection Act.
The content in question had depicted the BTS member having a private meal with his acquaintances, one of whom was a female tattoo artist. This set ablaze rumours of Jungkook dating, which Big Hit had promptly denied in a statement. However, it unfortunately did not quell a barrage of malicious comments and verbal attacks being made against both parties.
BTS have just completed the Saudia Arabia leg of their Love Yourself: Speak Yourself stadium tour and are set to wrap it up with three final concerts in Seoul on October 26, 27 and 29.
