Shortly after TWICE member Tzuyu went viral for her GIF from the Idol Star Athletics Championships, fellow group member Sana is now gaining similar levels of attention.
With Halloween coming at the end of the month, Sana treated fans by dressing up as DC Comics villain and Suicide Squad fan favorite Harley Quinn for a Melody Project V Live video.
While she danced along to her group’s songs “Like OOH-AHH” and “Cheer Up” in the video, however, she has mainly gained attention for what she said during the short interview that was also included in the video.
Many fans praised Sana for pulling off the Harley Quinn look despite the drastic difference in her image compared to the character. But when she was asked whether or not she watched the movie Suicide Squad, however, Sana simply answered that she did not, and even asked if the character was zombie due to her pale skin.
Fans who noticed Sana’s answers have had starkly different reactions. While some DC Comics fans attacked Sana for dressing up as the character despite not knowing anything about her (inevitably causing JYP Entertainment to cut out parts of the interview and re-uploading a short version), many fans found her blunt answer adorable. In fact, foreign fans have spread the hilarious moment on SNS, where it has even been shared by a popular Facebook page. So far, the post has over 10,000 likes and over 4,000 shares.
Many comments have indicated that the post was used to call out everyone who dresses up as Harley Quinn without knowing the character. However, other fans have interpreted it as a jab at Suicide Squad, which has been plagued with bad reviews and many audiences criticizing its supposedly lazy script-writing and poor plot. Some fans even jokingly expressed their jealousy towards Sana, noting that she’s lucky she didn’t waste her time or money watching the heavily-criticized film.
