Taking a hard stance! JYP Entertainment is standing firm to defend Miss A’s Suzy after a recent bout of online harassment.
On Sunday, November 9, Suzy was victim to some cyber bullying when an anonymous person sent threatening comments on Twitter with messages such as, “You unfortunate person, you should just die in a car accident,” and “Get kicked out of the entertainment industry.”
After the message was retweeted more than ninety times, the 20-year-old Dream High star finally replied to the comment by asking in disbelief, “So you wish I was dead?”
A representative for Suzy announced on Monday, November 10, “Our stance regarding Suzy’s malicious commented has not changed. We will be taking legal action. We won’t be overlooking this issue.”
It’s unclear what motivation, if any, the poster had to target Suzy, who is still riding high in Korea as one of the most booked idols for endorsements.

The spokesman adds, “We haven’t filed a charge yet, but the legal team will soon be on it.” JYP Entertainment has taken similar actions against internet trolls in the past when malicious commenters targeted Sohee from the Wonder Girls and 2PM’s Taecyeon.
