YMC Entertainment has responded to accusations that the IOI MV seems to have copied Girls' Generation's MV.

The teaser released earlier today featured the girls trying their hand at various occupations. Some of them included Jieqiong's ballerina, Yeonjung's fashion designer, and Chungha's dancer, which seemed to coincide with Seohyun's ballerina, YoonA's fashion designer, and Hyoyeon's dancer in Girls' Generation's "Into the New World" MV.

Fans also pointed out that the overall concept (of reaching toward dreams) as well as the outfits were similar to "Into the New World". To these accusations, YMC Entertainment told HeraldPOP, "We filmed the MV to match the song lyrics. They are about dreams and hope."

What do you think about the accusations?

    Honestly both groups are good but when people say SNSD is better than IOI they are completely right. One thing we have to consider is that IOI is a group that just debuted and SNSD has been around for years. Can we even logically compare these groups?

    As a SOne, we know what homage is and consider it flattery for our girls. Yeah, they used the same concept because they wanted to convey the same feeling. Nothing wrong with that. Just acknowledge it and move on... you know, like all the girl groups who aspire to GG's success do. ;)

    Amen! I hope people put it like that. GG made it big and still is big. It's just normal that hoobae groups made GG their standard.

    For all you who upvoted me, my apologies. I've seen the MV for this and they actually would have done better if they had copied "Into the New World". The MV and song were very generic. I was really hoping for something special from this group as they're not going to be around for that long. Maybe something better hidden in the album? If there is, suggestions and links would be appreciated.

    (Joking) Still, I am NOT sure that S.KOREA could survive a 'dress code' law that bans female K-pop Idols from wearing 'Cheer Leader' style clothing! ... ;-)

    (Joking) Speaking of the 'NEW WORLD,' will SNSD be adopting a DINOSAUR concept any time soon? ... ;-) ... Maybe SNSD could dress up like WILMA of the USA TV cartoon show "THE FLINTSTONES" ... ??? ... I believe that has NOT been done yet as a concept! ... ;-)

    these SONES think that SNSD has not copied anyone but i have seen many times and so did everyone else that they did. so SONES need to calm down.

    I mean if anyone else watched Standby IOI, the girls even said themselves they chose this song as their title track because they wanted their debut to have a meaningful message like SNSD's did. I wouldn't be surprised if they took inspiration from the "Into the New World" video.
