The past photos from Suzy's photo book 'Suzy? Suzy' resurfaced on various online communities, and several netizens have accused the star of taking part in a 'lolita' themed photo shoot. It's claimed that the props, such as the crayon and children's book, evoke the idea of lolita. The photo of Suzy dressed as the character Maltida from the movie 'Léon: The Professional' is also accused of referring to a 'lolita' concept. Netizens also find it more problematic that Suzy is the one who picked the concept, and her photo book was meant to be a personal project.
Netizens displeased by Suzy's pictorial commented, "There's definitely some type of sex appeal going on here. Not necessarily lolita, but that whole prostitution/brothel vibe is present", "It straight up looks lolita to me..", "It looks lolita to me. The fairy tale books, the expressionless face, the poses, the camera angles that look like you're peeking at her... and the overall vibe of the place looks like a brothel, very dark and gloomy."
On the other hand, many netizens defended Suzy and claimed that it's an exaggeration to call the pictorial lolita themed. They commented, "The photographer himself said that there were no lolita intentions, so I don't think it's anything to talk about", "It just looks retro to me. I don't think anyone who bought the photo book considered it lolita...", "The photographer himself said that the fairy tale book was already at the barber shop because it belonged to the owner's grandson. The photoshoot at the barber shop was very spontaneous to begin with. If you check out the photographer's Instagram, none of his pictures have a lolita feel to them. I don't see Suzy acting like a child in any of these photos."
