Hello, everyone. This is YMC Entertainment.
We sincerely express gratitude towards our fan club 'Wannable' and the ones who endlessly support our artist Wanna One.
As you all know from our constant announcements and notes, we would like to let fans who take excessive actions cause the members of Wanna One get extreme stress.
In recent days, many of fans illicitly received personal information of the members, and a portion of them relentlessly call our artist.
The members cannot concentrate on their schedule, take enough sleep, and have private time. Since the members cannot have ordinary private lives at this moment, they suffer from severe stress.
Any of you, who try to call or send text messages to our artist, acknowledge that it is an action of violating privacy.
Please take it into consideration, and we sincerely ask you to stop your behavior as soon as possible.
In addition to this, any of you who try to call our staffs to ask the safety of the members, spread fallacious rumors, and put GPS on our car to show up to the unofficial schedule and events, please keep in mind that it is also a violation of privacy.
Your action may absolutely threaten the security of Wanna One.
We deeply hope the members do not suffer from the unjust action of their fans, and you guys understand the situation and stop taking such behaviors. Thank you.
