With the heated attention of netizens on SHINee's Onew after seeing the idol giving the middle finger during a radio broadcast, SM Entertainment has responded to the criticisms.
As mentioned before, on the March 18th broadcast of 'Younha's Starry Night', the SHINee members featured as guests, and during the introduction segment, Onew's hand was spotted on the screen during the filming of the radio program. This led many to express their disappointment and question why the idol had given the middle finger when cameras were rolling.
Although it turns out Onew and his members were just playing around before they officially started their talk segments on the radio program when the hand gesture came about, SM Entertainment didn't make any excuses and simply commented, "Whatever the reason is, it was the wrong thing to do. Onew is self-reflecting. He will be more careful in the future."
