Fans are furious at Chinese boy group YH Boys for blatantly copying NCT Dream

The boy group under Yuehua Entertainment consists of 7 young members. They recently released a new track with the concept greatly similar to NCT Dream's ''My First and Last''. It's not an exaggeration to say that the outfits of NCT Dream and YH Boys are nearly identical.

Their previous concept also looks greatly similar to NCT 127's look for ''Limitless''.

Many fans have taken notice of the similarities and commented, "Hul... I don't understand why China keeps on copying our idols", "Wow... this is crazy. NCT is extremely popular now I guess", "This is too much. Why?? This is seriously too much. I'm so annoyed!", "Definitely plagiarism."

Netizens are even more irritated and shocked that former EXO member Tao is known to be the mentor for YH Boys. Comments stated, "I was like, okay what would little kids know... but then I saw Tao..", "Mentor omg lol", "Crazy".

I don't wanna bash any of them. I am personally a fan of YHBoys, NCT (Dream), and Tao, but, WTF!!! It's already known by some fans that YHBoys love Chenle and Renjun and are fans of them as well. They're inspired, for God's sake. For the universe's sake. WTAF!!!!They are not copycats. They are just inspired by NCT!!! What the actual f*ck!!!!!!!!

Ok.... so first, they have nothing to do with Tao. They met backstage at a music awards show, that's it. Idk where this mentoring thing came from.... seems like someone made a story up based on a random picture to make it more juicy. Second, YHboys technically are still trainees, they are did like 3 concept MVs, their debut is scheduled for this July. Third, I'm not too familiar with NCT Dream so I can't comment, but if they did copy anyone, they copied TFboys, which debuted in 2009 with the whole watch your idols grow concept.

Tfboys actually debuted in 2013 but anyway. Yes, at first I thought NCT Dream were copying TFBoys when I first saw them but then I realised that they were not exactly the same. Their concepts are similar, yes but not exact replicas so it isn't really "copying" and then again in kpop in general or even just pop, there is a lot of similar songs or concepts anyway.
