YG Entertainment has finally broken its silence over the leaked private photos of one of its best stars, BLACKPINK's Jennie, and officially filed a legal complaint against the leaker. However, some can't help to ask why the agency was only making its move today despite the fans' clamor several months ago.

A Korean media outlet noticed that YG still waited for BLACKPINK to end its promotions before taking legal action against anyone behind Jennie's leaked photos. The girls had completed the promotions for their second full album, "Born Pink," when the company released an official statement to address the worsening issue about Jennie.

In the statement, YG addressed the issues surrounding the female idol. It goes from her dating rumors with BTS's V to the criticisms, personal attacks, sexual harassment, and the invasion of privacy relating to her publicized private photos.

However, it took YG a couple of months of defamation, hate, and harassment that heavily affected the idol before it made its move. This made fans and the media wonder why the agency didn't come forward sooner to protect its talent from cyberbullying.

It was later revealed that YG just made its move by submitting a complaint to the police last month. The entertainment firm reportedly refused to comment or tell its stand over the issue to avoid inflicting further damage, accusations, personal attacks, sexual harassment, and invasion of privacy that were indiscriminately made against Jennie.

With that said, it looked like YG didn't address the issue at the height of BLACKPINK's promotions to avoid negative effects.

Meanwhile, YG released a statement on Monday, October 3, revealing it would be filing a complaint against the person who leaked Jennie's private photos. The company strongly opposed "acts of defamation and spread of false information."

It said it had officially requested the police to investigate the original distributor of Jennie's photos. It had already submitted a complaint last month after gathering information.

The company then admitted it refrained from commenting on the issue to minimize further damage. But it felt it was responsible for all the rumors, personal attacks, accusations, and invasion of privacy Jennie had been suffering.

This made it hard for them to overlook the situation any further. So, it now wanted to correct the problem by taking legal action. YG then promised to protect the right of its artists from now on.
