In light of this, a VLive broadcast from 2016 has resurfaced in which her groupmate SinB mentioned that Sowon's name in her phone is saved as "Kitler" (a play on Sowon's name, Kim Sojung).
Apparently the mannequin was present on a filming set which the group was using for their comeback showcase, which only raises more questions.
Fans of the group are currently reaching out to Sowon and Source Music via social media to demand an explanation/apology, but there has not yet been a response.
so from what i heard gfriend had a nazi soldier on their set then sowon decided to pose and take pics with it and only deleted it because 'the fans would be jealous' then sinb saved sowon on her phone as 'kitler' which is a mix of kim sojung and hitler, i honestly have no words. pic.twitter.com/vS9pOyYERX— MINA (@CHENJlCUB) January 31, 2021

^ I recommend checking out the two Twitter threads linked for more info, and a message in Korean that you can copy/paste on Sowon's Instagram comments if you choose. This is utterly unacceptable and disgusting.
