Life-size pillows of the K-Pop group GFriend have caused 'concern' in South Korea. Goods that are tribute to
K-pop girl band GFriend have angered fans because the objects can apparently be used as sex toys.
The life-size bolster pillows, 180 centimetres long and 60 centimetres wide with a full body image of each member colour-printed on top, are the target of a little ludicrous outrage.
A few people whinged that the goods for encouraging fans to hug the objects and perhaps do more than just hugging them.
They claim that the objects reminded them of Japanese dakimakura pillows which are adorned with life size sexy characters from manga or anime.
A few fans on the band's social network site said that they would boycott the band's merchendise. The boycott movement carries the hashtag #GFRIEND_goods_not buying.
Source Music said online it had decided to withdraw the products from sale.
Apparently merchandise has become a new barometer of popularity among K-pop fans and that sales are best not disrupted by anything controversial.
