Following Yoona and San’s Alleged Experiences with Racism at Luxury Fashion Show

San attended the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda show held in Nora, Sardinia, Italy on July 2nd (local time). For the event, San chose a chocolate-colored top with inspiration from Baroque-style sculptures, paired with wide flare pants and patent derby shoes.

In recent weeks, various online communities have brought attention to claims of racism experienced by San. A photo was shared, depicting him watching a fashion show from behind without a cushion on his seat, while the surrounding space appeared cramped and uncomfortable.

Despite the increasing controversy, San addressed the issue during a live broadcast by stating, “Out of the 10 outfits provided by the brand, this particular one was my favorite. The Alta Moda show is known for its diverse looks and in line with that, I wanted to experiment with different styles.”He further explained, “I even sat on the cushion without using a cushion. It saddens me that there are misunderstandings surrounding this outfit.”

In the past, Dolce & Gabbana has been accused of racism towards Asians. This was brought to light in 2018 when the brand released an advertisement featuring an Asian model with exaggerated “slanted eyes”and using chopsticks to eat pizza, resulting in allegations of racism. Additionally, in their “Dolce & Gabbana Summer 2016 Campaign”photo shoot, the only Asian model was depicted eating pasta with their hands and wearing a napkin around their neck, prompting further accusations of racism.

Despite being embroiled in controversy over racism at the Cannes Film Festival, singer-actress Yoona made a notable appearance on May 19th (local time). She had been officially invited as the sole Korean ambassador for the jewelry brand Qeelin and graced the red carpet with her presence at the 77th Cannes Film Festival.

While ascending the stairs, Yoona suddenly stopped to pose for fans and wave, but a female security guard quickly reached out her arm to prevent her from continuing. This particular security guard had been accused of displaying the same discriminatory behavior towards non-white celebrities.
