On August 27, the new boy group by SD Entertainment released photos for their 2nd digital single. The black and white album cover features the 5 members posing topless with fierce expressions. 

Upon seeing BIT's new concept photos, many netizens automatically thought of VIXX's album cover for 1st mini album 'Jekyll', which was released in 2013. As you can see, the black and white and the topless concepts are the exact same. 

Comments stated, "Wow, that's so wrong", "I have nothing to say because they are the exact same", "Is VIXX their concept?", "This is too similar..."

Do you also find BIT's album cover problematic?
