Lotte Duty Free has often worked with TWICE. The group recently held the LDF FAMILY PREMIER with TWICE event.

And TWICE were just featured in Lotte Duty Free’s magazine. While Lotte Duty Free advertised all of the members shooting the magazine…

The full group image in the magazine, while the same image as had been previously used for other promotions, does not include Momo, leading fans to believe she was intentionally edited out.

As Lotte Duty Free hasn’t given any reason for excluding Momo, fans are demanding that they reprint the magazine and remedy the mistake, trending #Respect Momo on Twitter. Especially since the mistake would have been difficult to make since Momo was in the originally used image.

As of the time of this article there is no update from Lotte Duty Free or JYP Entertainment.
