In November of last year, a broadcasting station outsourced production company chartered a cafe in Paju to shoot the comeback show of the new album, and our staff took behind-the-scenes footage and photos for SNS at the shooting site.

On the day of shooting, the department in charge could not recognize that there was a problem with the clothes of the mannequin in the process of checking the site. After that, in the process of uploading the behind video (December 12th) and the photo (January 31st), we had an internal acceptance inspection and a meeting, but we did not notice the problematic part and uploaded it as it was.

We apologize for not being able to confirm in advance that there were inappropriate accessories at the shooting site, not being able to properly check the process of shooting and uploading the content, and not being fully aware of historical facts and social issues. .. We apologize for the unpleasant feelings caused by the images and photos.

The problematic part of the video has now been corrected. The artist himself recognized the meaning of the content of the photo, was very surprised and immediately deleted the photo, and felt responsible for uploading such a photo, which is heartbreaking.

We will keep in mind that the content we produce and publish will affect many people, and we will pay even more attention to social issues in the future.
