aespa’s name has been trending at number one on twitter, but why?
On April 14, fans noticed something very unsettling in one of aespa’s recent videos and have taken to social media to demand an answer. A recent behind-the-scenes video of aespa at a magazine photo shoot, a man can be seen taking out his phone from his pocket, walking up to Winter and appears to have taken a photo of her without her knowledge. He stood there briefly before disappearing out of the frame.
Fans were livid after seeing the video. They have been demanding an answer from SM and for the man to be held accountable for his actions.
However, SM Entertainment’s response only angered fans even more. The agency claims that the individual in the video was the photographer in charge of the photoshoot and that, ‘we have confirmed he didn’t do anything to warrant misunderstandings.’
SM added that Winter enjoyed posing for the photoshoot and wasn’t upset by anything nor did a situation occur on set that could warrant a misunderstanding, they ended their statement with,
“We hope that there will be no more misunderstandings.”
Fans aren’t happy with SM’s response at all and puzzled with their statement.
The video in question can be seen below at 8:56.
