JYP Entertainment on Monday said it has requested police protection for the K-pop girl group Twice over concerns of stalkers.
The music label released an official announcement on its website, stating the protective measures have already taken effect in the area surrounding the label’s building in Cheongdam-dong, Seoul. The label added the members will be escorted by guards on all their activities.

“We are currently reviewing all applicable legal actions (against the stalkers), and when we are done, we will immediately proceed with the maximum-level possible,” the company stated in the announcement.
Last week, the company revealed it was looking into comments and issues on social media and online communities believed to constitute stalking and warned of legal actions.
In the statement, JYP added it has filed a lawsuit against those who have spread malicious rumors about the group.
“We will show no mercy on behaviors that impinge on the safety of our artists and will take the strictest measures possible,” the company said.
