After IOI performed their comeback song "Very Very Very" for the first time on MBC every1's 'Show Champion', one segment of the girls' choreography caught the eyes of netizens.

A heated debate over whether or not the beginning choreography of IOI's new song may be too provocative for the group, whose age range is from 15-21 years old, has been ongoing on online communities. 


The choreography move in question takes place during the intro of the song, when the members group together in a pyramid formation, with Kim Do YeonZhou Jieqiong (Pinky), and Lim Na Young starting off crouched down in the front before raising their bottoms up, then eventually coming up all the way and flipping around. 


Those who say the move is too provocative have been arguing with comments like "I didn't notice it before but it is a little uncomfortable... plus its the three skinniest members with the nicest bodies...", "If you watch that with your parent and feel uncomfortable during it, that means its provocative", "I feel bad... that move isn't cute or pretty, its just uncomfortable, so did they have to put it...", and more. 


Those who disagree claim, "It's like one second, get over it", "It all depends on the viewer's perspective", "You're making it weirder by taking a screen cap of it and making a fuss over it", "They're just continuing the pyramid formation", etc. 


What do you think about the debate?

    I would say that IOI Group should *remove* that 'BUTT ASSpect' (typo ; sorry) of their 'introduction' in the LIVE Performance here. I personally have NOT a problem with it; but *some* do. I do *not* see that this IOI 'Butt Move' is 'integral' somehow to the performance of the song. So, just get rid of it. Find some other 'dance maneuver' that works well enough. IOI Group AGENCY could just say like that exactly. Like "We do *not* see a problem. But *some* were not so comfortable with it. So, we modified it. And hope that EVERYONE can 'live with' the 'New Intro' and enjoy the IOI Group performance."

    Again, if the IOI Group 'Butt Move' at the introduction is retained; I have NOT a problem with it. This seems more a 'bow to the absurd' situation. (Joking) So, give the TALIBAN what they want! ... ;-)

    I never noticed it because they always started by zooming on the girls' faces.

    I agree on this. I actually though WTH when I saw it for the first time, it's highly disturbing, what kinf of intro is that?

    I'm just going to traduce some text I read. A says: "Look at his girls aged 14 provokig with their clothes, What do you think?" B answer: "And what do you think about feeling provoked by girls aged 14?". Girls are not the problem, the problem is these fucking sexists and pedophiles minds that think girls are sexual objects. It feels like does not matter what we do, we will always be provoking some crazy man. I'm so done.

    oh now I see the pyramid on the pic, maybe because I wasn't paying attention to the begining of the dance just the end of the dance when they look so unconfortable oh well , whatever xD
