Sowon (age 25) of the K-Pop girlgroup GFRIEND has been embroiled in a scandal after she uploaded lovey-dovey pictures of herself with a life-size mannequin wearing a Nazi uniform on her Instagram account. She quickly deleted the pictures and explained it was because she was afraid her fans would get jealous.
Fans later discovered that this wasn't the group's first incident: In a 2016 livestream, bandmate SinB explained that she has saved Sowon as "Kitler" in her phone, a play on her real name Kim Sojung and H*tler.
Neither Sowon, GFRIEND's company Source Music nor their parent company Big Hit Entertainment have issued a statement so far.
