Among the people Jeno met was the famous German photographer Ellen von Unwerth. The photographer was able to meet Jeno on the red carpet and like what anyone would do when they met a celebrity, she took a photo with an NCT member.

Ellen von Unwerth then took to her social media to share a photo of the two of them. However, internet users quickly noticed something wrong in her post when she added a signature.

Instead of tagging Jeno or NCT’s Instagram account, she instead tagged the official BTS account, adding that she was excited to meet one of its members.

In her post, she said, “I’m excited to meet a member of BTS.”

No wonder that Internet users quickly pointed out their mistake and expressed their frustration. While many indicated it might be a mistake, others felt she should have known who she was taking the photo with.

Some even called the German photographer racist, which echoes the stereotype that Westerners all Asians look the same, and assumed Jeno was a member of BTS because he was a K-pop idol.

She also apologized, saying, “Sorry, it’s great to meet Jeno.”

After that, she said nothing more about it. However, fans bombard her Instagram account to criticize the photographer for her mistake.
