On Sunday, pictures of MOMOLAND idol Nancy were released on a Discord group with 500 members and the pictures were of the K-pop idol undressing. Fans who noticed this had immediately flagged the user for sharing the same and it was brought to the attention of Nancy's agency, MLD Entertainment. However, the pictures that were shared on Discord soon spread to other communities and fans have found out that the pictures were taken by a member of Nancy's staff. This had resulted in fans' outrage which led to the agency releasing the statement regarding their stance on the matter. 

"Hello. This is MLD Entertainment. Illegally manipulated photos of Nancy have recently circulated on online and social networking platforms. Nancy is a victim of having photos being inappropriately taken and manipulated. The person that should be protected first and foremost is Nancy. We ask for your cooperation with a heavy heart," said the agency in a statement. Not only that, they also claimed that they will be taking the help of law officials to take further actions. 



 

The statement added, "We will be joined by the police and judicial authorities overseas in taking strong legal action against the first person who posted the photos, as well as those who have taken part in spreading the photos. Through a legal representative, we will also pursue civil and criminal suits for compensation of damages on the basis of violating the Act on Special Cases Concerning the Punishment, etc. of Sexual Crimes, circulating material deemed pornographic by the Act on Promotion of Information and Communications Network Utilization and Information Protection, etc., and violating personal rights."

The statement also added, "Nancy is currently undergoing severe emotional turmoil. We sincerely ask of you. We long for an end to malicious posts that harass our artist. We will continue to make every effort to protect our artists from additional damage through continuous monitoring. We will also follow through with our legal actions with no leniency and without reaching a settlement. We want to express our gratitude to fans who always love and support our artists. We will continue to do our best in ensuring our artists’ personal and given rights."

It was also said that the pictures were taken when Nancy was in Vietnam as the EmCee for the 2019 Asia Artist Awards. According to a report in allKpop, the organizing committee of Asia Artist Awards also apologized and said, "We will actively cooperate with Vietnam and the Korean law enforcement authorities on punishing the individual who filmed illegal photos and videos of Nancy along with the individuals who initially distributed the photos. We will cooperate with Nancy's agency to continue monitoring and cooperate with civil and criminal legal actions against the malicious postings related to her to prevent further damage. We apologize for this unpleasant event and apologize to Nancy's fans who have become concerned."
