Responding to artists' copyright infringement publications is a measure to protect fans and consumers from publications that are published indiscriminately without legal process. Especially in this Star Focus Special Magazine, Big Hit is also trying to prevent the damage to the reserved fans who actively take legal action against publications that infringe the intellectual property rights. 

In the future, we ask that fans and consumers take care to purchase publications and contents that infringe on intellectual property rights, and Big Hit will do everything necessary to protect the intellectual property rights of their artists.
