All of these comments, whether positive or critical, are valuable and important for the betterment of the Project. It is with this in mind that we will continue to work hard to improve the project.


However, unfortunately, there have been a certain number of acts which cannot be called opinions or comments, which involve invasion of privacy or slander based on unfounded speculation, and which can only be judged as malicious attacks on our team members, celebrities, employees and other related companies and people. We are aware that there have been a number of attacks by a small number of people. We believe that this is an extremely serious problem that must not be overlooked, as the offensive actions of a small number of people can aggravate the environment surrounding the industry and greatly hinder its growth by preventing many other people from legitimate fan activities and the creation of attractive characters and content.


Therefore, Virtual Entertainment Inc. (hereinafter referred to as "the Company") has established the "Anti-Defamation Committee" (hereinafter referred to as "the Committee") with the following members, including the Company's legal counsel, in order to protect the rights of the Company's team members, talents and employees (hereinafter referred to as "the Members") who support this project from such offensive acts of defamation and invasion of privacy.
