Fans express disappointment towards former Crayon Pop member Way for making a video sponsored by plastic surgery clinic

AKP STAFF

Former idols often need to do sponsored ads to help fund their careers, but former Crayon Pop member Way is getting flack for a video sponsored by a plastic surgery clinic.

The video starts out with a gagman asking viewers "how much longer are you going to wait" telling viewers that "you can be pretty too." Way then proceeds to tell viewers about non-invasive plastic surgery techniques such as Botox and talked more about how plastic surgery.  

Fans expressed their disappointment and commented on the video stating: 

"I always look for your videos because they're fun but the advertisement really sucks... I know it's hard to escape the mentality of plastic surgery but this was really uncomfortable to watch."

"Even if Park Bogum released an ad like this I would be annoyed." 

"I really like you but that ad... if a woman is pretty is that all she is? I hope you get better ads in the future..." 


Check out the video below. Do you think the video is problematic?

I think what mainly bothered knetz (and of course inetz don't understand since they only read allkpop articles without actually watching the video) is the content of the advertisement not just the fact that it was about plastic surgery... the main point of the advertisement was "everything's ok (or it's everything / nothing else matters except) for you to be pretty"... they didnt mention the gender but a guy was talki g and saying it to a girl both times so it's obvious theyre aiming it towards women... it was pretty uncomfortable for me to watch as well and the ad seemed dumb

Maybe you guys should be the one to "actually watch and understand the video" instead of calling knetz overreacting and telling them to "read the description box"... ok great she's helping others but how does that change the fact that the content of the ad is messed up?
