BLACKPINK’s agency also explained why they decided to remain silent about the matter in the past few months. They also asked people to avoid sharing the pictures of the female idol.

YG Entertainment’s full statement regarding BLACKPINK Jennie’s leaked photos is as follows:

“This is YG Entertainment.

We have officially requested the police to investigate the original distributor of BLACKPINK Jennie’s personal photographs. We have been monitoring the situation and filed a complaint in September after gathering information.

YG has refrained from commenting and expressing our position in the past to lessen the damage. However, we felt a sense of responsibility that it was no longer possible to condone the mass spread of rumors, criticism, personal attacks, sexual harassment, and privacy violations that were coming with the personal pictures. Therefore, we would like to clarify that we are taking legal action to rectify the situation.

YG is taking strong legal action against the posts that damage the reputation of our artists. We would like to inform you that this case is being filed for violations of the Information and Communication Net worth Act, violation of illegal information and distribution, and obscene use of communication media.

We will take all possible legal action without any leniency to prevent further damage in the future. Pictures that were circulated online were illegally released, regardless of the intentions behind them. The act of sharing these photos can be considered a secondary offense and subject to legal punishment. We sincerely ask you to avoid recklessly sharing them.

YG Entertainment will continue to work hard to protect the rights and interests of our artists.”

Based on their statement, YG seems to be indirectly confirming that BLACKPINK Jennie’s leaked photos are real as the agency only used the words “illegal” and “illegally released.” Usually, when companies address a situation where fake images of their artists are spread online, they would use the term “fabricated” in their statement.

Still, there were several pictures featuring Jennie that were uploaded online, and it’s uncertain which one YG is referring to when they said “personal photos.” It could mean all images or just several.
