Junsu of K-pop boy band JYJ is considering taking legal action against netizens who have made hateful comments against him in the past.

The 28-year-old singer tweeted Sunday that he has recently received multiple requests from people through his personal email and his label’s legal team to take legal actions against online slander.

“I have dealt with (hateful comments) for the past 10 years,” he wrote on his Twitter. “I tend to be optimistic and strong so I am less affected by the comments. I thought if I work hard, people would understand me better. But as I look over the data and the situation, I thought they have gone overboard. And most importantly, people beside me are having a hard time with this situation and that hurts me. For this reason, I can no longer overlook the situation just because I am fine with it.”

“I can differentiate criticisms that are aimed towards my growth (from those that are not),” he said.

He said he is planning to talk to his legal team about this and asked the fans to send any information and data regarding this matter to his label, C-Jes. “I would like to talk to these people face to face.”

“I don’t know what I did that wrong to make them hate me,” he said. “I am sorry to my fans who have to deal with my deficiency.”

“See you again tomorrow with a smile at Seongnam Arts Center,” he said, thanking the fans.

Junsu is currently starring in musical “Death Note,” which runs through Aug. 15 at Seongnam Arts Center Opera House in Gyeonggi Province.
