SM Entertainment defends Super Junior’s Yesung World Cup outfit
In order to show support for the South Korea vs. Nigeria game, Super Junior attended SBS’s World Cup Festival – A Shout of Victory live program on the 23rd.
Yesung was the media’s main target at the event where the singer was criticized for the t-shirt he wore. It was a simple design of the Korean flag that was cropped just a bit to fit around the neck area.
Reporters continued to criticize the innocent member by saying things like, “He reformed the national flag with torn edges. That should be a violation.”
SM Entertainment quickly stepped into the scene to defend Yesung by stating, “We approved of the outfit Yesung wore. It was a simple t-shirt with the Korean flag cropped to fit around his neck and was done to show support for the World Cup and nothing else.” quickly dismissing the controversy over the “damaged flag”.
Some reporters sure do know how to overreact, don’t you think?
