GFRIEND’s Sowon Post Offensives Photo with Nazi mannequin at Korean Cafe


On January 31st, the leader of Gfriend Sowon became under fire for posting a photo of her with a Nazi mannequin. The photo was taken in what seemed to be a historical Holocaust museum. This was later debunked, it’s actually a cafe in Korea called Café Zino. The cafe is a popular film location for kdramas.

NOTE: The original website deleted their listing of the cafe, but I’ve got ya covered here’s a link to the page before they deleted the cafe information. LINK

The mannequin in the said photo is a Nazi soldier from world II.

World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945. It involved the vast majority of the world’s countries—including all the great powers—forming two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis.


Nazi Germany, officially known as the German Reich until 1943 and Greater German Reich in 1943–45, was the German state between 1933 and 1945, when Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party controlled the country which they transformed into a dictatorship.


When Sowon’s post spread around the web Gfriend fans (Buddies) and Kpop fans alike were shocked and offended.

Sowon ended up deleting the post but the situation didn’t stop there. An old video of SinB saying that she has Sowon’s name saved in her phone as “KITLER” has resurfaced, further enraging and hurting their fans.

Fans are now calling for SinB and Sowon to apologize and take accountability for their actions.
