Kwon Kyung Yup's artwork is done so beautifully that most viewers may forget the controversy over the subject of his paintings. His paintings center around the 'Lolita Syndrome,' which is described as "the feeling of love toward a little girl around or younger than adolescent age."

Before you become disgusted by the inspiration behind these paintings, the feeling of love described is closer to compassion than anything else. The fragility and delicateness of the girl is what causes this rush of emotions for the young subject in his paintings, and not lust.
