Chinese online media Tencent will be airing the official, licensed remake of Korea's 'Produce 101'. The idol competition show is going to have the same concept and rules as the Korean program with female trainees.
Just recently, 'Produce 101 China' released the official poster and introductory clip. With it being an officially licensed version, the show is gaining much attention in both China and Korea. Unfortunately, it's already receiving criticism as viewers claim the 'Produce 101 China' video is extremely similar to The Boyz' introduction clip, which was released back in August.
As you can see, the content for The Boyz and the video for 'Produce 101 China' take on the similar concept of members getting on the elevator, introducing themselves one-by-one, etc.
Seeing this, Korean netizens are expressing anger, commenting, "They copy everything...", "They completely ripped it off", "Wtf", "Stop copying omg."
In regards to the plagiarism, The Boyz' agency Creker Entertainment stated, "We're currently checking the issue."
