Seohyun was spotted on a poster put up by a homeless man on the streets of Nanchang, Jiangxi, and photos of the scene have been posted online. In order to gain pity and receive donations, the man claimed that the unlikely pair had been husband and wife until Seohyun passed away.
Taiwanese media outlet NOWnews reported, "There's a homeless man on the streets of Nanchang, Jiangxi, China that uses Girls' Generation's Seohyun's graduation photo on a sign and puts on a serious expression to beg for money." On the poster, the homeless man claims that his "wife" died in a fire 2 years ago and that he suffered extreme injuries. He adds that he's begging in order to feed their daughter and his family.
The news spread online with netizens having mixed reactions. Though many fans found the entire thing hilarious and ridiculous, there were also those who were angry that Seohyun's image was being used in this manner.
