Through media, a representative of SM Entertainment denied the matter.

We have confirmed that the photographer in charge of the shoot, who appeared in the video in question, did not do what he was misunderstood of. Winter, of course, enjoyed the photoshoot back then, and there were no incidents that were unpleasant neither were there any situations that could be misunderstood.
