SM Entertainment to edit out controversial images in Red Velvet's 'Happiness' MV

Red Velvet
SM Entertainment has announced that controversial images in Red Velvet's music video for their debut track "Happiness" will be edited out.


Shortly after the release of the MV, Japanese media reported that there were images referencing the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki as well as the tragedy of the 9/11 attacks as seen in the screencaps below. SM Entertainment responded to the reports, explaining, "After questioning the director, we found that he simply used a collage source for the images, and there was no intention behind it."

The rep added, "As SM wasn't able to catch it before, we will remove the material that caused the misunderstanding as soon as possible. We will make sure not to let this kind of thing happen in the future."
