Big Hit Entertainment has officially announced that they have sued the person in charge of leaking footage of BTS’s Jungkook and tattoo artist Lee Mijoo at the karaoke parlor.
They have charged the Kareoke parlor located in Geojae-do for violation of personal information law and defamation.
On September 17, Jungkook visited this location in Geojae-do where tattoo artist Lee Mijoo and other workers were staying. Footage from this day of Jungkook giving what seemed like a back hug to the tattoo artist was leaked online causing fans to question if the two were in fact dating.
Jungkook is deeply saddened that these small events that happened during his long vacation have become distorted. We will be sure to press charges for the leakage of footage and illegal filming.

I am not in a relationship with Jungkook. We are just good friends and I am sorry for all the pain and trouble I have caused to the people around me and to all the fans.
