A gem attached to IZ*ONE Kwon Eunbi's forehead in the MV teaser for "Secret Story of the Swan" causing controversy online.

On June 11th, YouTube Stone Music Entertainment channel released the music video teaser for IZ*ONE's third mini-album, "Oneiric Diary". Kwon Eunbi's forehead in the video has a jewel attached to it. It is similar to India's 'bindi gem'. Bindi jewelry is known to be used between the eyes of Hindu culture such as India and Sri Lanka.

Hindus criticized the wearing of "Bindi Jewelry" for being considered sacred in a religious sense in Hindus, saying that wearing it by ordinary people is rude. On the other hand, there were also many opinions that "although it was considered sacred as a religious meaning of Hinduism in the past, it is now used for decorative purposes as its religious meaning has been reduced."



Netizen comments :


(+52,-3) It's like you're just putting accessories yourself.
Here's a religious reason.
If you ask her to explain,
What should she answer?
What do you want to hear?
An apology?
Oh, my God.


(+21,0) That's a sacred ornament in that country. Isn't that just a decoration in another country? So you shouldn't eat beef in another country because cows are sacred in your country? You're a real jerk.


(+9,0) If the agency gives feedback on this, they would say something about the reggae hairstyle before too, but they ignored all the other singers. Ignore this one, too.


(+9,-1) Wow, that's uncomfortable.


(+8,-1) You don't have to give this much feedback.


(+5,0) It also exists in overseas as well.


(+5,-1) Then do you have to explain yourself?


(+5,0) What does Eunbi know? She's doing what she's being told.
