Webtoon artist Yoon Suh-in's Girls' Generation-related cartoon has fallen under controversy.
Last February, Yoon Suh-in uploaded a cartoon titled "Ladies' Generation's Past" on an internet portal site.
This cartoon depicts the scantily clad members of Girls' Generation in their 'past' look and another where they greet the New Year by pounding rice cakes. On one side are the strange comments, "I want to go to the commissioners.." (tn: incomplete) and "Oh... this is good too..."
After seeing this, the Girls' Generation fans left attacks and disparaging remarks such as "He sexually harassed Girls' Generation" and "It's too shameful to look at." Especially in the 'past' look, they considered the poses of the members and Yuri's expression (in the middle of the group) overt cases of sexual harassment.
Yoon also drew a cartoon where the subject was Girls' Generation. At that time, he called members Yoona, Yuri, and Sooyoung "The Pretty 3" and revealed that "At first, Yoona caught my eye, then I started to see Yuri sometimes, and lately it's Sooyoung." Also, the remaining members were called "The Nobody 5" and eventually drew the last member with a simple dot, gaining criticism.

(Th-this is a little...)
(It makes me want to take the manor examinations...) (tn: They were the nationwide examinations to test knowledge and skill in the old Goryuh and Josun days. They were really difficult, and you can look it up if you want to know more. 장원급제 : jang won geup jae)

The OP will refrain from personal comments. ♥
I didn't feel the cartoon had to be lj-cut, but if anyone feels otherwise, I will?
Helpful note taken from somewhere: "pounding rice cakes" is a euphemism for having sex.
