Is hacker Gurumi going to jail for V-Jennie dating rumor? BigHit claims they have found the suspect
BigHit Music takes legal actions against Gurumi Haribo, fans demand jail for malicious hacker
SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA: It appears that Gurumi Haribo has become the sole target of every BTS and Blackpink fan after the alleged hacker breached the privacy of several K-pop idols. And now that the matter has hit the roof, BTS's record label, BigHit Music has stepped in to protect their artist. The identity of the poster remained a mystery until the label officially released a statement on September 29, 2022. Bighit claimed they had found the culprit and "the case has been sent to the prosecutor's office." Now, this could mean some serious action would be taken against the person or people behind the hacker known as Gurumi Haribo.
Gurumi Haribo had previously released unseen images of K-pop idols V aka Taehyung and Jennie claiming that the artists are dating. To back up their theory, they leaked private unreleased images of the two. The obsession with the rumored couple did not cease here. They later posted an unseen picture of Jisoo from the Paris Dior show and captioned it with, "So please, Jisoo, if you get this message, please post this unseen picture as a sign that you know Jennie and Taehyung are hanging out and you (among others) cannot speak about this. Thank you." Hours later, Jisoo's Instagram account had posted the leaked image but fans did not know if she had posted it or if her account had been hacked too. With the rumors flying, Bighit decided to take matters into their hands.

Who is Gurumi Haribo?
A Twitter user with the screenname DropTheBomb (@twocanplay_) has come forward claiming that Gurumi is none other than the "friends of idols, private accounts, staff, managers and sasaengs," which makes it harder to track down the hacker. They have also confirmed that the images have been accumulated from various sources and do not come from one specific account. The netizen claimed that Jennie and V became easy targets of Gurumi because of Jennie's alleged "snake team" and V's popularity.
Is the hacker going to jail for spreading false rumors?
According to the official statement released by BigHit Music, the company mentions a "specific poster" that has been spreading "ill-intentioned rumors" on multiple platforms. BigHit has filed a criminal complaint against the poster which could cause serious damage to the hacker or group of hackers involved. The note also revealed that the suspect has been identified and there will be legal proceedings against them. This could all lead to jail for Gurumi or worse. While fans take a sigh of relief, many criticize HYBE for taking no serious actions before this.
A fan tweeted, "OMG WHY AREN'T THE COMPANIES DOING ANYTHING???!?" HYBE:". Fans have already concluded that the hacker is going to jail, "Have fun in jail Gurumi hope u rot there", "Good morning Gurumi bitch going to jail, we love to see it", "GURUMI GOING TO JAIL YESSS". Another fan wrote, "Not to mention the legal fees of court are already expensive, hiring a lawyer, paying fines and court fees are not fucking cheap like i hope they go broke and to jail fuck gurumi fr".
