South Korean music agency MLD Entertainment has released an official statement a few hours after news broke out regarding MOMOLAND Nancy's leaked and manipulated photos circulating online.

On January 11, the agency stated that they would be taking legal action against the illegal filmers as well as those who are spreading manipulated versions of MOMOLAND Nancy's said photos.

Read MLD Entertaiment's official statement below:

Hello. This is MLD Entertainment.

Illegally manipulated photos of Nancy have recently circulated on online and social networking platforms.

Nancy is a victim of having photos being inappropriately taken and manipulated. The person that should be protected first and foremost is Nancy. We ask for your cooperation with a heavy heart.

We will be joined by the police and judicial authorities overseas in taking strong legal action against the first person who posted the photos, as well as those who have taken part in spreading the photos. Through a legal representative, we will also pursue civil and criminal suits for compensation of damages on the basis of violating the Act on Special Cases Concerning the Punishment, etc. of Sexual Crimes, circulating material deemed pornographic by the Act on Promotion of Information and Communications Network Utilization and Information Protection, etc., and violating personal rights.

Nancy is currently undergoing severe emotional turmoil. We sincerely ask of you. We long for an end to malicious posts that harass our artist.

We will continue to make every effort to protect our artists from additional damage through continuous monitoring. We will also follow through with our legal actions with no leniency and without reaching a settlement.

We want to express our gratitude to fans who always love and support our artists. We will continue to do our best in ensuring our artists' personal and given rights.

Thank you."

Aside from her agency, fans were quick to come to their idol's defense, using the Twitter hashtag #OurRainbowNancy to bring the said leak to attention. Moreover, they called on the public to respect Nancy and woman in general, as well.
