The Japanese Rising Sun Flag represents Japanese imperialism and was used during when Japan conquered its next-door Asian countries such as China and Korea. Making it look negative as the countries mentioned suffered losses under that flag.

The said show deleted the photo on its account, however it had already circulated among netizens and media sources.

Representatives of Trouble Maker explained to news outlet, Osen that, "The image on Trouble Maker's outfits is not of the Rising Sun but a flower bud. But seeing that as a misunderstanding has risen, we apologize for not having paid closer attention to the details of their outfits."
