Being a celebrity certainly keeps you busy with a variety of activities. Not only that, but the artist must be ready to face the spotlight. Like recently, Pentagon’s youngest member, Wooseok, became a hot topic among netizens because of his KakaoTalk wallpapers circulating on the internet.

In the photos circulating, screenshots of Wooseok’s chat content are displayed on KakaoTalk. This widely circulated photo itself apparently circulated from an old program that was once starred by Wooseok. Netizens made the wrong focus with the wallpaper on Wooseok’s KakaoTalk account. How not, Wooseok seemed to use a wallpaper with writing that was considered impolite due to the mention of female genitals.

The background reads, “Pu*sy makes me smile. I love the different colors of pus*sies and I don’t care if the pus*y is shaved or not.” Inevitably, KakaoTalk’s background photo immediately became a controversy among netizens.

The quote has sparked quite a debate among netizens between some who think it’s offensive, others who think he might not fully understand what the quote means, and others who think it doesn’t matter either way.
Some comments read, “He set it as his background – he definitely knows what it means. That’s the word used to make sex jokes.” “Stop defending him and saying he didn’t know what it meant. It’s his background photo.” “He probably set it as his background without any thought… Why does everyone say everything is against women? You looked for something that appeared for a second on a show from years ago… You look like people who are trying too hard to be bothered so you can criticize someone.” “Maybe he just thought it meant a cat,” and more.
