DR Music, the agency managing BLACKSWAN, is taking action against online harassment. They have announced their decision to pursue legal action. This move comes in response to a surge of malicious posts and comments directed at the members of BLACKSWAN. The agency’s commitment to protecting its artists highlights the growing concern over cyberbullying in the entertainment industry. This decisive action signifies a major step towards fostering a safer and more respectful online environment for artists and their communities.
DR Music to Take Legal Action in Protecting BLACKSWAN
DR Music, representing BLACKSWAN, is addressing harmful online behavior. They announced plans to take legal action to protect the group and its members. The agency’s statement acknowledges the rise in derogatory remarks and posts. These have been distressing to the members, their families, company staff, and former artists. The agency is urging people to stop sharing such negative content.
Moreover, the agency points out BLACKSWAN’s unique position in the Kpop industry due to its diverse membership. This uniqueness attracts fans from various nationalities and races worldwide. This diversity, while enriching, can also lead to misunderstandings and disputes, complicating the group’s mission to create music and content that transcends racial and cultural barriers.
Additionally, DR Music emphasizes the damaging effects of spreading malicious or factually incorrect content online. Such behavior harms everyone involved and undermines productive discourse. Therefore, to protect the group and its members, the agency prepares to address and take legal action against indiscriminate malicious comments, racially or nationally insulting remarks, rumors spreading, and other insulting posts.
Here’s DR Music’s Full Statement

“Hello, we are DR Music.
Recently, there have been a lot of offensive comments or posts directed at the members. A lot of reckless and malicious content is coming up, and the posts are negatively affecting not only the members, but also their families, company staff, and even artists who used to belong to the company. We sincerely ask you to refrain from uploading these negative posts.
BLACKSWAN, a group with members that are distinct from the general K-Pop girl group due to their background, is a multinational group that is enthusiastically supported by people of various nationalities and races around the world. For that reason, things that sometimes seem less significant to someone with a different background can lead to larger-than-expected quarrels. This poses a lot of difficulties in reaching the goal pursued by us and the members to share positive music (or content) that people around the world can enjoy together beyond race and culture.
Posting malicious comments or untrue content online without facts can hurt everyone and not benefit anybody. We hereby inform you that we have no choice but to take legal action if the actions specified below are continuously discovered.
- Indiscriminate malicious comments
- Insulting comments about race and country
- Comments & posts that contain rumors
- Insulting posts
