The 7 members of LipBubble recently made their debut with ''Popcorn''. The girls took on a cute and bubbly cheerleader concept. The cheerleader look is not new in K-Pop. In fact, it's been used quite often in the past by girl groups such as Girls' Generation and TWICE.
However, netizens are displeased at the great similarity between LipBubble and TWICE's concept for ''Cheer Up''. The outfits, color, pose, and other qualities of LipBubble's ''Popcorn'' are accused of being extremely similar to TWICE.
LipBubble's choreography is also being criticized. It's claimed that they copied TWICE's move in ''Knock Knock''.
Netizens commented, "Hul, they're exactly the same..", "??? It's too similar", "Seriously, what are they doing", "Is this noise marketing?", "It's the same", "Hul, I thought it was TWICE when first looking at a glance."
