Chinese netizens are frustrated because Lareina Song continues to be involved in a new scandal.
Two hot artists, Lareina Song and Baekhyun, got involved in a scandal on social networks on the evening of March 6. Chinese netizens, especially Baekhyun’s fans, are extremely angry after discovering that the actress’s studio has copied and plagiarized the image of the male idol.
The incident started with the studio sharing a series of behind-the-scenes photos of Lareina Song’s event. However, fans quickly discovered that one of these photos was copied from Baekhyun’s album cover called City Light. The actress’s photo editor copied the entire frame, from the border to the barcode on the photo, just replacing only the picture and name of Lareina Song.
After Baekhyun’s fans brought it up with Lareina Song’s studio, the photographer in charge of the photoshoot apologized to Lareina Song, Baekhyun, and both parties’ fans for the misdeed. He wrote, “It is my responsibility for giving Lareina Song’s studio a picture that plagiarized Mr. Byun Baekhyun’s solo album. It created trouble for both parties’ fans. I sincerely apologize to Mr. Byun Baekhyun, Lareina Song, and both parties’ fans. This type of incident won’t happen again from now on. I am sorry to everyone.” He also tagged the Weibo accounts of Baekhyun, SMTOWN, Baekhyun’s fan clubs, and Lareina Song’s studio.
It can be said that this incident has seriously affected the image of Lareina Song. From the beginning of the year until now, the actress has been constantly involved in scandals, such as the scandal of secretly marrying actor Ethan Ruanto, rumors of moving to live with a rich young man. The actress’s studio struggled to deny those rumors.
