IU’s agency said Wednesday it plans to pursue legal action against a man running a channel on video-sharing platform YouTube for his recent sexual comments about the singer, comparing her to his dog.

Fave Entertainment told local media that it had met with legal representatives to file charges against the man, and vowed a “strong response without mercy.”

In a follow-up video, he alleged that the comment was merely a joke and that the reporter who wrote the story on his video clip had taken it out of context.

“I really like IU and I never meant it to be derogatory or anything,” he said.

IU, 23, debuted in 2008 with “Lost Child” and has since become one of the highest-earning and prominent K-pop acts in the country.
