The original photo of Junghwan was actually taken in a convenience store in Hongdae, South Korea. The image, which appears to have been taken by a fan who bumped into the idol, is a candid shot of the male chowing down on some food as they pay at the register.

Due to this situation, Junghwan ended up as one of the most searched keywords during the Met Gala. Specifically, people searched for "Junghwan at Met Gala" and "Junghwan eating." Following the incident, the Met Gala has taken down the Instagram post.
