Nayeon is currently under police surveillance because of this problem, and despite being repeatedly warned by the police and Nayeon herself that he should not approach her, he continues to ignore them, raise his voice towards our staff and clash with our staff. Foreign stalkers continue to behave without regrets for their actions despite consistent warnings. We hereby announce that we will take legal action against him as soon as possible.
We also recognize that artist flight information is illegally sold and distributed. We want to say that we will continue to look for steps to eradicate this problem completely. We would like to express our sincere apologies to the passengers who might be very uncomfortable with this problem.
We will take action to prevent this from happening again. Thank You.”
