Woollim to Take Legal Action Against Comments About Lovelyz’ Jisoo
Woollim Entertainment, home to artists such as INFINITE, Tasty, and Nell, is set to debut its first girl group, Lovelyz, on November 17. However, several negative rumors regarding member Jisoo have surfaced prior to the group’s official debut. Rumors such as Jisoo being a bully, a backstabber, and even the member entering the company to seduce members of INFINITE were claimed by an alleged close friend of Jisoo.

The post made by Woollim is roughly translated as follows:
