"Hello. This is SM Entertainment.

We are giving our position regarding the recent increase in actions that severely invade the private lives of NCT members.

The members have been suffering severely due to the continuation of [actions such as] visiting places related to the NCT members’ daily lives without authorization and waiting for them, following their vehicles, excessively contacting or photographing the members within the airport security zone including on-board the plane, illegally acquiring personal information and attempting to contact them indiscriminately, and spreading malicious rumors.

In particular, at the end of November last year, there was a trespassing incident at Haechan’s residence with a so-called “sasaeng” (referring to those who invade the personal lives of celebrities). As Haechan is living with his family, not only Haechan but also his family have complained about receiving considerable psychological damage.

The trespassing “sasaeng” has been indicted by the prosecution, and although [the case] was wrapped up generously without criminal punishment according to Haechan’s wishes, it revealed the seriousness of the issue of invading the privacy of artists, and we decided to reveal this situation with the means of making a warning so that a problem such as this no longer occurs.

We once again state that such actions are not actions that express interest in the artists but that they instill fear in the artists, and this is a stalking crime that causes severe harm to not only the individual but their family and the acquaintances around them. We hope that the “sasaengs” immediately stop infringing on the artists’ private lives.

Going forward, we will severely deal with illegal actions such as the housebreaking of “saesaengs,” leaking of personal information, and stalking with zero tolerance. The agency will take strong legal action by all means we can proceed with, and we ask that you be cautious not to get involved in such shameful events.

We will do our best for the protection of our artists going forward.

Thank you."

1. We need to change the term to "stalker"

2. The comments are honestly pathetic. Why are you guys blaming the victim?...

3. But if he wasn't taking pictures inside his house, fans wouldn't flock thereㅎㅎ

4. Crazy... they even broke into his house.. isn't this too much? Wow

5. It's seriously crazy that they entered the house where he lives with his family. Are they not in their right minds? If I were them, I wouldn't be requesting for a lenient sentence. And those are not fans

6. Crazy;;; his family lives in his house and they just broke in?ㄷㄷ

7. No but it looks like they f*cking have nothing else to do with their lives. Why are they stalking him? F*ck

8. F*ck, I' getting goosebumprs. Breaking into a house is a crime; whether or not he's living with his family

9. Every time I watch his lives, he seems freaking pissed off because of the calls and now they even went as far as breaking into his ohuse

10. Haechan-ah, don't got easy on them ㅠㅠ please get them behind the bars
