Pledis Entertainment has issued a statement after fans violated NU'EST's privacy this week.

On May 12, NU'EST were chased by car following their scheduled activities, and the people in question snuck into their apartment building hallway to wait for them. While Pledis Entertainment has reported the fans to police, this isn't the first time NU'EST has had to deal with violations to their privacy.

In their statement, Pledis Entertainment outlined many occasions wherein fans have entered spaces, including visiting the company, practice rooms, recording rooms and gyms to wait for the members. Fans have also been following the members' vehicles to their home.

Pledis Entertainment expressed that the members are suffering from psychological distress due to these behaviours and stated: "We will respond strongly to all current and future cases, including these ones, through action such as limiting their NU'EST related fan club activities permanently. We will collect evidence via sources including CCTV footage and the internet to file a complaint at the local police station. Moreover, we will ask for severe punishment for all matters that compromise NU'EST's safety and personal rights".
