The photo brought about controversy among fans after WinWin‘s shirt was brought into question. The shirt read “M.I.L.F Hunter.”

Korean netizens have criticized both the NCT 127 member as well as the group’s coordinator for the shirt being worn. While “MILF” isn’t a term widely recognizable in South Korea, it is a term acknowledged in America due to the classic film American Pie. According to Urban Dictionary, the top definition term is described as “Mother I’d Like (to) F***”. However, it is also recognized as a term to describe “a mom who is hot”.
