The Seoul police have officially begun their investigation to find the culprit responsible for leaking HyunA‘s photoshopped nude photo.
According to Soompi, the cyber investigation team of the Seoul Police announced on June 21 that they have received the evidence and are in the process of investigating the matter.
The picture of HyunA had spread rapidly via social media outlets like KakaoTalk and Facebook. The picture was soon discovered to have been manipulated, with HyunA’s face photoshopped onto a topless woman’s body.
The police are looking into arresting the original distributor of the image.
A representative of HyunA said:
“The information proving that the picture has been photoshopped and the adult site said to be the original place where the picture was posted have both been submitted to the police as evidence.
"We will not tolerate our artist’s image being destroyed by such terrible actions.”
