Red Velvet’s Latest “SAPPY” Teaser Image Has Fans Questioning SM’s Photoshop Skills

Netizens are not impressed with SM’s photoshop fail.

On April 30, SM Entertainment uploaded teaser images for Red Velvet‘s upcoming Japanese mini album, SAPPY, on Red Velvet’s SNS accounts.

Fans were quick to realize that something was amiss with Seulgi‘s hand.

Seulgi’s right hand seems to be resting on something that isn’t there, and her left elbow is hidden by something invisible as well.

Look at Seul’s right hand. They’re out of budget for a decent graphic designer or something. Even I can do a better job photoshopping her in

Other fans, however, believe that this photoshop “fail” was intentional, as the entire shoot resembles a magazine cut-out collage.

I think it’s meant to be like choppy and low quality. Looks like someone cut out a picture of Seulgi and stuck it onto a magazine. Maybe that’s what they’re going for.

Red Velvet’s SAPPY is set for a May 29 release and will feature 6 songs, including Japanese versions of “Peek-A-Boo”, “Rookie”, and “Power Up”.
