Stray Kids were recently announced as the next #BENCHGlobalSetter for the Filipino apparel brand BENCH. Notably, STAYs swiftly noticed that some of the Stray Kids members were immensely photoshopped in a set of promotional photos. 

Specifically, Bang Chan's nose looked unrecognizable. STAYs went on to point out that the  Stray Kids member's edited nose looked similar to I.N's. But fans became more confused as it looked like Bang Chan, I.N, and Seungmin's noses all looked edited.



In promotional photos previously released by BENCH, fans did not sense excessive editing. Thus, Stray Kids fans were confused as to why the brand recently decided to edit the K-pop group's faces.

Adding to the frustration, Korean skincare brand NACIFIC also released photos regarding their photocard event with Stray Kids. Fans of the K-pop group were not happy as the latest photos showed Bang Chan's face severely edited.

As per Stray Kids fans, Bang Chan seemingly looks unrecognizable. The leader looked like he had a smaller nose and lips that were not as full. Though fans are not happy about all the members' photoshop fails, they are especially upset at the ones towards Bang Chan.

Stray Kids' Bang Chan has previously been involved with excessive editing in the past, after all. Fans are hoping that brands notice their outcry, hoping that facial edits will be minimized in the future.
