Ex-MOMOLAND’s Daisy shed light on an unexpected financial burden faced by K-pop idols.
It turns out that some idols are required to foot the bill for lawsuits against malicious comments made about them online.
Daisy pointed out that one of the “funniest things” on an idol’s expense list is the money spent on legal action against malicious comments. She said she told the company not to spend money on that anymore. Her reasoning was simple: she’d rather see that money used elsewhere.
Daisy also expressed agreement with a fan’s opinion that idols shouldn’t be responsible for covering the costs of such legal actions.
Instead, the fan believes that this responsibility should squarely fall on the shoulders of the companies representing these idols.
