Netizens are applauding to SM’s quick response.

SNSD, the biggest issue of this summer, released the album cover of upcoming 2nd mini-album on the 22nd, but people criticized the image of aircraft, which resembled Zero-sen. As the criticism grew, SNSD’s management company decided to immediately delete the controversial image. On the 23rd, SM Ent said, “We inserted military icons in the album cover, but we are going to delete those because some are misinterpreted from what we have intended”, and added “We will delete the image and replace it with T-20 which is developed and produced in Korea”.

In response to the step taken by the management company for unintended but controversial issue, most of Netizens viewed it as a “regrettable but a proper decision”.

One Netizen said “It’s good that they quickly reacted to the criticism before the comeback. If they ignored this issue and only gave excuses, the situation would have gotten worse”. Another said, “deleting the pic will be better for SNSD”.
