Carats ask Korean magazine to apologize to Dino for photoshopping SEVENTEEN member

Fans of the  SEVENTEEN who are called the Carats are accusing a South Korean magazine of photoshopping the photo of Lee Chan, 21, who is professionally known as Dino. For the fans, this is unprofessional and disrespectful to one of the members of the K-pop boy band.

On April 6, 2020, Carats were not happy to see the photo released by Billboard Korea for its Volume 3 featuring SEVENTEEN members including Dino. They were disappointed to see that he was barely recognizable because of too much editing.

Apparently, Dino’s face looks slimmer in the photo and his eyes and nose were reshaped. The editor of the magazine has yet to respond to the Carats’ clamor.

Pledis Entertainment formed SEVENTEEN in 2015. The group has 13 members who are divided into three sub-units.

Dino belongs to the performance unit. He is will Jun, 23, The8, 22, and their unit leader Hoshi, 23, whose respective real names are Wen Junhui, Xu Ming Hao and Kwon Soon Young.

Professionally known as S.Coups, Choi Seung Cheol, 24,  is the SEVENTEEN leader. He is also the leader of the hip-hop unit, which has three other members namely Jeon Won Woo, 23, Kim Min Gyu, 22, and Hansol Vernon Chwe, 22, whose respective screen names are Wonwoo, Mingyu and Vernon.

Lee Ji Hoon, 23, who is professionally known as Woozi, is the vocal unit leader. His unit mates are Yoon Jeong Han, 24, Joshua Hong, 24, Lee Seok Min, 23, and Boo Seung Jwan, 22, whose respective screen names are Jeonghan, Joshua, DK and Seungkwan.

Born in Iksan-si, Jeollakbu-do, South Korea on February 11, 1999, Dino became a trainee in 2012. His parents are dancers and he made the choreography for the SEVENTEEN songs “Jam Jam” and “Flower.”

SEVENTEEN has released three studio albums namely “Love and Letter” in 2016, “Teen, Age” in 2017 and “An Ode” in 2019. The K-pop boy band is scheduled to tour Japan in May 2020 and Pledis Entertainment has yet to announce whether or not the tour will be cancelled due to the new coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
