Controversy

After she posted the photos, people criticized her for it. Later, she clarified her stance and said, [2]Koreaboo

      People may have been uncomfortable, but it was not a Rising Sun flag. I like Korea, donate to society, and volunteer. I think that I have basic knowledge, and think that it’s unfortunate that this kind of controversy occurred. I may be upset that this photo became a controversy, but I think that it’s inevitable. I can’t say ‘Please look at me favorably’ to everyone who looks at me. I respect the opinion of everyone who thinks differently, so it’s okay. I don’t know how other people may think, including the reporters, but I don’t think there’s anything I’m embarrassed about.”

  • In June 2018, she landed in controversy again when she posted a photo of her painting to inform that she was selling her paintings at an exhibition. Some of the fans asked her questions related to it to which she gave cold replies. It was not liked by netizens, and they criticized her for talking so rudely. [3]Koreaboo
