Fans are angry at the great similarity between BTS and G-Friend's lightsticks.

Army Bombs are known to be the official lightstick for BTS. It was first introduced in March of 2015. 




Last month, G-Friend launched their Glass Marble stick.



As you can see, the lightsticks of the two groups share a similar design. Currently, this similarity is becoming an issue to many BTS fans. It's claimed that G-Friend stole BTS' design and fans are demanding feedback from Source Music.


A netizen even claimed that s/he called Source Music several times to officially file complaints about the lightsticks. However, s/he was reportedly given a rude response and ultimately ignored. 


Angry fans commented, "We would appreciate if they give proper feedback on the lightsticks as well as on the rude behaviors of the employees", "Honestly, it's not just the lightsticks. They've copied choreography, outfits, MVs, and songs but never gave any feedbacks. They need to explain this", "Wow that label is terrible. I've never seen an agency react to an issue this way", "Please give feedback Source Music", "It's too similar."


Do you also find the similarities problematic?

bighit and source are literally across the street from each other and they've also worked together before??? even if it was super similar, it's like the concept of sharing answers- u can't tell me u've never copied an answer or had similar ideas with a close friend or family member?? it's like the concept of working together with a partner at school- you'll have answers that are similar but not exact

I saw this pic half of month ago and no one said anything. And I don't see a lot of Armys talk about it. But top comments are like "Ugh, armis at it again, BTS copied Bigbang too". So much idiots here.

Allkpop really loves cherry-picking their "evidences" to make this issue bigger than it seems. How pathetic. Next time, any article that starts with "Fans are..." or "Netizens are..." expect that they came from Pann, or other threads filled with douchebags.

People need to look at it from the practical side: Now, if you go to a BTS or GFRIEND concert and bring the wrong lightstick, chances are noone will notice. Maybe save money and just buy one ;).

i don't think the official ARMYs and BUDDYs is actually concerned about this, either Allkpop just trying to make buzz taking from some few nonsensical comments or this only came through outside the fanbase that love to spew hate -__-. either way, us ARMYs don't actually mind about this
