GFriend Sowon’s photo hugging Nazi statue is controversial

On January 30, Sowon uploaded a series of photos of herself to her personal Instagram account, @onedayxne. In the photos, Sowon can be seen posing affectionately with a life-size figurine wearing a Nazi uniform.

Shortly after Sowon uploaded the photos to Instagram, they were soon deleted. However, one Jewish K-Pop fan on Twitter later noticed the images and proceeded to share them, letting their followers know the violent history behind the statues. cr

1. I think she didn’t know about it

2. But I wonder how many Koreans know that it’s a Nazi statue just looking at that uniform..

3. To be honest, how many people (among Koreans) realized that the uniform was the Nazi uniform?

4. She should apologize. But why is the Nazi statue there? I’m more curious about that

5. I guess she didn’t know, the statue just looked like a man in a military uniform

6. I don’t know if it’s a Nazi statue. Why are they displaying that statue?

7. I guess she thought it was just a handsome soldier statueㅋㅋㅋ

8. She deleted it immediately, she needs to be more careful in the future, I’m not a fan, but those who are criticizing her don’t even know that it’s a Nazi statue

9. Was it the Nazi uniform, the Hungarian uniform, the Chilean or Argentine uniform? Military uniforms at that time also seemed similar

10. If she didn’t know, she should apologize
