On Dec. 4, Yoon Tae-jin’s agency, Koen Stars reported on the announcer’s stalker case. “We will no longer shut our eyes to the netizen who has been wandering around Yoon Tae-jin’s house and engaging in suspicious behaviors.”

“The netizen has been engaging in this kind of activity for a long period of time. Their behavior is causing distress and threatening the safety of the other party, which provides enough proof to file for legal punishment,” they said. “We will also be taking action on those leaving malicious comments.”

정말 무대응이 답이라 생각했어요. 이것도 관심이고 사랑이겠지 싶어서요. 허황된 이야기들도 저번보다 강도가 더 심해졌습니다. 저를 응원해서든 싫어해서든 그만해주시길 부탁드립니다. 이건 저에게 정말 공포예요. 저번에도 이랬을 때 죄 없는 지인들 피해보고 제가 제 집을 오가면서 한참을 고생했습니다. 어떻게 하겠다는 게 아닙니다. 제발 그냥 그만해주세요. 부탁드립니다, —— ————– 자극 받을 말들이 많은 것 같아 댓글은 막았습니다. 내일 여러분이 조언해주신 내용들 참고해서 최소한의 조치 해둘게요. 늦은시간인데 걱정해주셔서 감사합니다.

On the same day, Yoon made a personal post on her Instagram. “I thought the answer was to leave it alone and not do anything. I looked past it, thinking it was just fan interest and love. However, even these ridiculous stories have gone too far. Whether these actions are done out of support or hate, please stop.”

She revealed messages she revealed from her stalker, which said, “I’m in front of your apartment”, “I know you’re not sleeping”, “Hey, your lights are on”, “Come out right now”, “I’ll get slapped for you”, “Should I ring your bell?” and “Should I yell?”

To this, she responded with, “This is horrifying for me. Last time this happened, I couldn’t help but be suspicious of innocent people while walking home. I suffered so much. I’m not trying to threaten anyone. Just please stop. I beg you.”
