Many were psyched about G-Friend's recent comeback with "Navillera," but there are others who are not so keen to join the party.

While G-Friend fans were happy to see that their favorite group released a full album at last, some people couldn't help but pinpoint the shortfalls of the album. In one particular online post titled 'G-Friend plagiarized f(x)!' a netizen put forth the argument that "Compass," a song off G-Friend's new album 'LoL,' sounds too similar to f(x)'s "Airplane" to be mere coincidence. 

The netizen wrote, "There are many people who claim that G-Friend's latest title track sounds similar to INFINITE's 'The Chaser'...but there is another song that sounds more similar than the title track. There is a song called 'Compass' which is track number nine on [G-Friend's] LP. It's the same as f(x)'s 'Airplane.' There is no way you can dispute this." 

Most people seemed to agree with the OP's claim, writing, "I don't think this is right at all. The intro sounds like they just copied [f(x)] lololololol," "That's crazy, they sound so similar?" "OMG 'Airplane' is the song to my life how dare they touch it," "I used to think all G-Friend songs were good but when I heard this title track, it sounded similar to their previous ones so I'm getting sick of it," and, "I'm going to call G-Friend's agency tomorrow after my exams so should I just pick a fight with them?

What is your stance?

Ouh my god guys! To be honest, Gfriend is my second favorite girl group after f(x). I am s excited knowing that they will released a first full lenght album. My favoritr songs in Pink Tape is Airplane. Airplane are also the best song among all of f(x)'s songs for me. Gfriend's Compass is so lit. When the first time i heard it i was like "uhmm it's sound like Airplane, but yeah i love it. It's so good". Compass is the best song among all of gfriend's songs. And now you guys are fighting about my two most favorite group and two most kpop songs that i love. Omg wtf even? Help meee 😂😂

Everyone keeps on saying things like "It sounds like this other song." or "Why do all their songs sound the same?" so, Gfriend keeps on getting bashed for that. Gfriend is literally innocent, and I'm not saying that just cause I'm a fan. Gfriend doesn't compose their own songs, or choreograph their songs. So, instead of bashing them, they should just bash their composer for making it sound like their other songs, or a someone else's songs. It's so annoying how people aren't thinking about this when bashing other kpop groups.

Only the instrumental sounds similar...the melody (which is really what matters) is nothing alike.
