Despite public backlash, MBK Entertainment rookie girl group DIA has decided to continue working with a controversial photographer for their 2017 Season’s Greetings.

When photos of group member Jung Chaeyeon‘s individual Season’s 2017 Greetings were released, MBK Entertainment received a lot of flak. 

Rotta, the photographer who was hired for the pictorial, has been accused of using “lolita-inspired” concepts for his photo shoots, reports Koreaboo.

Aside from his concepts, Rotta has been criticized for his lack of originality and the overuse of similar lighting and angles.

In addition to Chaeyeon and DIA, Rotta has worked with other celebrities, such as Sulli and girl group Stellar.

Most recently, Goo Hara posted photos from a shoot featuring her and Sulli.
