Many criticized her for the picture, stating that it hurt the sentiments of Koreans. Later, Yeon-soo removed the picture and also apologized,Koreaboo
"People may have been uncomfortable, but it was not a Rising Sun flag. I like Korea, donate to society, and volunteer. I think that I have basic knowledge, and think that it’s unfortunate that this kind of controversy occurred. I may be upset that this photo became a controversy, but I think that it’s inevitable. I can’t say ‘Please look at me favorably’ to everyone who looks at me. I respect the opinion of everyone who thinks differently, so it’s okay. I don’t know how other people may think, including the reporters, but I don’t think there’s anything I’m embarrassed about."
