Fake Kpop Group Angers Korean Neitzen
If you recall in 2014, Thai exo-cover group, Millenium Boy, aka EXO-T (named by their fans) has been under fire for crossing the fine line between cover and plagiarism. The boys started off as a simple cover group but found themselves profiting off the fame of their EXO-inspired designs (logo, group photo, style and marketing collateral). The group apologized to SM ENT and changed their logo.
Despite, precedent result from the Millenium Boy other cover group continue to repeat the mistake. Recently, a performance flyer went viral online in Weibo showing what seems to be impersonating 'WINNER'. The guys in the flyer poses with the same concept and style as YG's original group. They also falsified their experience and held a concert at at a Max Club & Disco in Liuzhou, China. Do you think these guys are taking it too far?

the sad thing is they are cute and not bad at performance. It's just they keep claiming they're winner to people.

well cnsikdering that there are all sorts of people plagerizing and just plain being dumb!!!! it doesn't offend me... because if they we're using the platform as a "Parody" it's something totally different... but many times more often than not, the innocent get caught up in the hype and limelight! poor things... this is what happens when you forget where that invisible line of fantasy and reality blurrs and gets crossed... poor things...
