올해 1윌 이후, 첸에 대한 지속적인 비방과 도가 지나친 인신공격, 조롱으로 여러 커뮤니티에서 부정적인 여론을 조성 하고있는 악플러들에 대해 제3자 고발을 진행하려고 합니다.

This is not the first time that EXO fans have started a lawsuit against malicious comments, and therefore brings to light, once again, the issue of SM Entertainment’s artist protection. Hopefully the company will finally see what they are lacking, and will change what they can, in order to bring more protection and safety to their artists.
