On the 14th, SM Entertainment said to Top Star News, “The person who appeared in the video was a photographer who took charge of the photo shoot and confirmed that he did not do anything that could be misleading.”
He added, “Winter also happily worked on the photo shoot at the time, and there was no unpleasant or misunderstood situation on the spot. Thank you to the fans who were worried and hope that there will be no more misunderstandings.”
Earlier on this day, part of the video containing the Espa pictorial shooting site spread around the online community and SNS.
Netizens raised suspicion that a staff member seemed to have filmed illegally behind Winter, and the video spread and became controversial.
However, as a result of checking the full video, a refutation was raised that there seems to have been a misunderstanding in the process of monitoring by the staff.
There have been similar incidents in the past. A male staff member at the commercial shooting site with Suzy was suspicious of sexual harassment with a single picture, but was released from a different angle and was taken off the frame.
As a result, voices at midnight are coming out, saying that we should be careful about the excessive witch hunt with only some pictures and videos.
