Statement from Jeon Somi's camp: "Acknowledging 'Tracing Suspicion,' Official Position on MV Controversy - Scene Removed"


Singer Jeon Somi's agency has issued an apology regarding the tracing controversy.

A representative from her agency, Double Black Label, stated to EXSports News on the 9th, "Internally within the company, we belatedly recognized that the character appearing in Jeon Somi's new song 'Fast Forward' music video bears a resemblance to an existing Japanese manga character." The representative continued, "We have decided to delete the scene in the music video that has sparked controversy."

Further adding, "We should have thoroughly examined this matter, and we apologize for not confirming it beforehand," conveying their apology.

The current tracing suspicion controversy arose after the release of Jeon Somi's new song 'Fast Forward' music video, where the illustrated character in the video was pointed out to bear similarities to characters from the famous Japanese manga 'Shin-chan.' While the two characters are not exactly identical, they share similarities in terms of art style, facial expressions, and face shape, leading to allegations of tracing.

Additionally, the agency's delay in issuing an official statement for a day after the controversy emerged aggravated the dissatisfaction of fans.

On another note, Jeon Somi released her new EP album 'Game Plan' on the 7th and made her comeback in the music industry.
