Japanese people are wondering why SNSD attended the festival. The video, which was taken at the festival, is on Youtube with the title, “Is SNSD an official of the Unification Church?”
A member of the House of Councilors blogged, “Korean people don’t think the Unification Church is bad because they think it is one of the foundations. SNSD's attendance at the festival was for business only.”
J-cast News said, “SNSD is not the only artist who attended the annual festival. Many popular artists attended the fesitval, including, Brown Eyed Girls and 2AM, neither of which have anything to do with the Unification Church."
