Another 4th Gen Male Idol Under Fire For Cosplaying A Character From Problematic Anime “Made In Abyss” – KpopHit

“There is an anime I recently got into… It’s fun.”

WEi‘s Yongha has joined the list of male idols under fire for watching and recommending the highly problematic anime Made In Abyss.


Made In Abyss — a manga series that transitioned into anime — is the brainchild of Akihito Tsukushi and explores the depths of a treacherous pit known as the Abyss through the eyes of a young girl, Riku, and her companion, Reg.

Its narrative is a rich tapestry of fantasy and adventure, earning accolades for the complexity of its universe and impressive animations. However, the show has elements that have sparked significant backlash, including graphic violence and content that raises serious questions about child exploitation and pedophilia.

The anime includes the protagonists being tortured, strung up without clothes, wearing provocative clothing, frequent reactions to their nudity, mentions of their genitalia, and more.


This controversy has been reignited as fans unearth instances of male idols expressing their fondness for the series. Previously, TXT‘s Soobin openly shared his enjoyment of the anime in a broadcast, and NCT 127‘s Taeyong endorsed the manga version, which is noted for being more explicit.

The 11th volume of the manga spotted on Taeyong’s Instagram story.

SEVENTEEN‘s Woozi and ATEEZ‘s Mingi have also faced backlash for their mentions of the anime, as has YouTuber and reality TV star DEX (Kim Jin Young), who praised its “bizarre” plot.

Made In Abyss. It’s one of my absolute favorite animes of all time. But it is a bit grotesque.

The latest idol swept up in the controversy is Yongha from WEi, who endorsed Made in Abyss to his fans via the Dear U Bubble app, casually recommending it as a fun watch.

Ah, and there is an anime that I recently got into. It’s called Made In Abyss. It’s fun.

— WEi’s Yongha

But fans were more shocked to see Yongha had previously cosplayed as one of the show’s characters during a face-to-face fansign. Videos posted online show Yongha cosplaying as Reg, one of the main characters in Made In Abyss, known for his artificial body and distinctive black helmet and red cape.


During the fansign, Yongha is spotted wearing the signature pieces that a fan brought for him after he talked about it on Bubble.

The choice to cosplay a character from such a contentious series raises questions not only about the idol’s personality but also about the influence he has over the audience and his responsibility towards it.
