A girl group from China has caught the attention of netizens for sharing an uncanny similarity to G-Friend


SEE ALSO: 'Weekly Idol' awards this group for being the best at the 2x faster dance!


The Chinese girl group, called AOS, recently released an MV titled "With You," and not only are the members' outfits similar to G-Friend's outfits but also the song's sound is much like what you'd hear in a G-Friend song - not to mention parts of the choreography seems inspired. These similarities were shared by a netizen under an online post titled 'Idols Who copied G-Friend's costumes.' 

Netizens were unsympathetic to both groups. Top comments on this post read, "G-Friend's got nothing to say because they also copied lololol it just goes round and round," "Ra Mi Ran is in the center?" "G-Friend also marketed their music with plagiarism," "They're so ugly," and more. 


Do you think this was plagiarism?

One thing I've noticed about China is, they don't give AF about copyright or intellectual property

Nothing really just a bunch of salty fans who think the whole innocent/school-girl concept belongs to their unnies Gfriend didn't do anything wrong because concepts are limited and not one band own it

Why do Chinese people always copy Koreans? It's the same with their variety showAre they just not smart or are they just not funny? Honestly their variety show are not funny at allAll they ever say is fighting and support each other all the time and not being witty at all
