A man in his twenties was sentenced to 14 months in jail, suspended for three years, at a Daegu court on July 17. The individual was also allegedly sentenced to 240 hours of community service.

According to reports, on February 22, the individual pretended to be a member of BTS and phoned a BTS producer. The producer, who had been duped by the individual, disclosed details about planned promotions as well as previously unheard tracks.

The man then allegedly shared the song 47 times, posting it to his Instagram account and sharing it with his Kakao Talk contacts. According to accounts, the individual discovered the producer’s personal information online and committed the act in order to portray himself as a prominent producer.

Because of his criminal past, he had trouble making healthy relationships with people, so he spent more time on social media. Before his arrest, he had studied music, and a classmate became a celebrity. Because of this, the man committed the crime out of wanting to be like him and out of curiosity.

The judge presiding over the case underscored the gravity of the offense but stated that the punishment reflected Big Hit’s aim to avoid criminal prosecution.
