Plagiarism and imitation accusations are rampant in K-Pop lately.


SEE ALSO: EXO's 'Monster' is chosen as one of the best songs of 2016 by Fuse TV!


Countless acts have been scrutinized for copying certain aspects or ideas of other groups' concepts, and this time MONSTA X is in the unwanted spotlight for allegedly copying EXO


A netizen shared gifs comparing the performances by MONSTA X and EXO, pointing out that MONSTA X directly copied the widely known "Growl" choreography of getting down to the floor and then rising back up. At a glance, the performance do appear similar, and other people who chanced upon this post generally agreed with the OP.


They wrote, "Isn't that 'Growl' dance really f*cking famous??? The rumors that you'll throw out your back attempting to dance to it is also really famous;; I think it's totally unacceptable to copy that move," "Wow...when people mention 'Growl' that's the first move I think of..how can they copy that..?" "F*ck so they plagiarized EXO's dance, Block B's MV, and BTOB's album cover; they must be plagiarism idols," and more. 


What is your stance on this latest plagiarism controversy?

1. isn't monsta x's dance just for some dance show they were on?2. lots of group do similar moves alright. exo has copied some moves too. eg. that 'microwave move' you used in monster, you didn't make it coz i've seen others do it before you. I guess they're copying then?
