According to a recent report by Sports World, K pop boy group WINNER’s fanclub, whose name is Inncer Circle, will be pursuing legal action against netizens leaving malicious rumors against Name Tae Hyun. It appears that due to past bullying rumors, as well as controversy over Nam Tae Hyun speaking informally to fans, certain netizens have continuously expressed their disdain for the Winner member. The report states that Winner fans personally collected the malicious comments in question, as well as raised funds to back the suit.
WINNER is a South Korean boy band formed in 2014 by YG Entertainment. The group's five members are Kang Seung-yoon, Song Minho, Nam Taehyun, Kim Jinwoo, and Lee Seunghoon.
The group was first introduced in the reality-survival program called Who is Next: WIN as "Team A." Team A and their adversaries Team B were both formed from trainees within YG Entertainment. The teams competed against each other in order to debut as the first YG boy group in eight years, after Big Bang. At the conclusion of the program the title of "WINNER" was given to Team A after they won all three rounds of public voting.
