“Where Is Sakura?” Fans Are Divided After Artist Takes Down Photos Of LE SSERAFIM Due To Criticism
A photographer who uploaded photos of LE SSERAFIM members is being criticized after fans felt he had intentionally left out a photo of Sakura.
The photographer, Cho Gi Seok, an esteemed artist who also works as an art director, uploaded several teaser photos of LE SSERAFIM members for their upcoming album UNFORGIVEN.
The photos, all taken by the photographer, show the members in an artistic light. The members exude a beauty that is haunting and ethereal.
After the pictures were uploaded, however, fans complained that member Sakura was missing. According to reports, the photographer had also uploaded individual members of the group but did not upload a photo of Sakura.
Cho Giseok posted the solo shots of the other members, but didn't include Sakura's. I think we should reply to his post so he can repost it. LE SSERAFIM IS FIVE.

Netizens were divided about the incident. While some fans defended the photographer by stating his artistic vision should be respected as the photos weren’t official, many others maintained their stance that “LE SSERAFIM is five” and that they’d rather not have any photos if it meant a member would be left out.
Please no, he is a photographer, not a fan. He chose photos he likes more, not the subject.

Umm for people who says that it's not a big deal. That her fans should 'get over it'
It's not a big deal too, to just add her picture in there. It wasn't that hard to fix his 'mistake'. Why was he being so stubborn? Do not promote if he can't just being fair and making such-

Yeah their work is great and all but if they hurt Sakura’s OR ANY MEMBER’s feelings by leaving her out and therefore make her uncomfortable in her working space I would rather them not work anymore with LSF lmao why would you want such people to work with LSF

Personally, I think he just randomly choose photos he likeor just forgot, unintentionally. But we still should reply that situation since it makes us feel weird, sad. BUT, PLS do it politely because he might not do it in purpose, and he could works with our fimmies in the future

I think it's very unwise to comment spam like that instead of thanking him for the photo concept he made
I mean he's just a photographer, and not a fan, I'm just afraid that fearnot will be labeled toxic :'(
