Super Junior’s agency Label SJ has given an official statement regarding threats made against Kyuhyun and his family.
Kyuhyun’s older sister previously confessed on Instagram that her family had been stalked by an anonymous netizen for three years. In addition to hacking her phone and calling her every day and night, the netizen had also threatened her with murder. Despite constant police reports and blocking of the netizen’s accounts, Kyuhyun’s sister revealed that such actions were useless as the netizen would merely create new accounts each time.
In her Instagram post, Kyuhyun’s sister shared the netizen’s threatening messages sent from a hacked account and a captured image of numerous missed calls from the netizen. The post contained other photos of the netizen’s invasive behavior, including a photo of her father sitting in a coffee shop and threats to distribute the phone numbers of Kyuhyun’s sister and other members of her family.
After she made her original post, the netizen pressured her to delete them by sending alarming messages such as “Do what I say or you will regret it for real this time. I’m literally coming to your house right now you b****” and “I will ruin Kyuhyun’s career.” Eventually, Kyuhyun’s sister deleted her posts, but the identity of the netizen has yet to be verified.
On January 8, Label SJ stated, “As Kyuhyun’s sister is currently in the hospital due to childbirth, it is difficult to take active measures. We will respect the wishes of Kyuhyun’s older sister and give our full assistance so things can be resolved as Kyuhyun’s family wants.”
They continued, “Because Kyuhyun thought that it was his family’s business, he never asked for help from the agency. We learned of the matter after reading the post uploaded on social media by Kyuhyun’s older sister. Kyuhyun said that the netizen has never threatened him directly.” Kyuhyun is currently completing his mandatory military service as a social service worker.
Other celebrities such as 2PM’s Junho, f(x)’s Luna, and TWICE’s Jihyo have also expressed their concern and anger after netizens hacked, threatened, and scammed their family members for their own gain.
