On August 1 JYJ filed suit against what is referred to as “D” media outlet, aka Dispatch, for 100 million won (about $88,300 USD) in combined damages. This cicil suit is about the release, in March of this year, of audio tapes that were alleged to be of JYJ assaulting and swearing at their sasaeng fans.
A member of JYJ’s legal representation said:
“The outlet released illegally recorded voice files under real names without checking if the claims were true or not. It is a clear libel and an invasion of their privacy.
JYJ cancelled their initially filed libel suit to file this civil claim. You can read more about this lawsuit here to refresh your memory on the JYJ issue.
