K-Pop fans are taking issue with a year-old interview where K-Pop singer “Woozi” (real name Lee Ji-hoon) listed anime series he’s watched and included Made in Abyss.
Debuting in 2016, Woozi is a male vocalist associated with the K-Pop group “Seventeen”. You can check out the clip of his interview below:

K-Pop Twitter quickly jumped on Woozi for his choice in anime.
Meanwhile fans of the anime were quick to defend the singer, pointing out that at the end of the day it’s just fiction.
Made in Abyss is an ongoing manga series from creator Akihito Tsukushi which began in 2012. In 2017 the series received an anime adaptation with a new season premiering last year. You can check out our review of the game adaptation Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness here.
