On the April 24 episode, Jessica and Krystal’s Korean names were briefly captured on a guest list of a funeral home. Jessica’s Korean name, Jung Soo Yeon, was listed under deceased while Krystal’s Korean name, Jung Soo Jung, was written beside it under guests. The message for the deceased also read, “Unnie I miss you… I love you…”
Netizens are confident that the name usage is not a coincidence, and many found it highly offensive even though the scene only lasted for a brief second.
Criticism toward ‘Super Family’ continued with comments, “Daebak.. how could they think of such thing;;;; And the way they put unnie;;; I’m getting goosebumps”, “They targeted them in such an obvious way!”, “What were they thinking…”, “Coincidence or not, they need to apologize. It’s offensive.”
