Tablo takes legal action to defend his Stanford degree


Tablo, lead singer of the hip-hop trio Epik High, is taking legal action against netizens who claim that his degree from Stanford University is fake.

Since the controversy over his degree erupted in November, Tablo has repeatedly vowed to sue netizens for defamation of character, but this is the first time he has taken action.

According to a statement released Monday by the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency, Tablo filed a complaint against 22 members of the online cafe Tajinyo (We Request the Truth from Tablo). Police added that an investigation into the matter had begun.

In response, Tajinyo, which has more than 12,000 members, said the group would challenge the singer’s Stanford degree and Canadian nationality in court.
