Many IGOT7 believed that everything added up to be too similar between the two albums, and that Woollim Entertainment
had blatantly copied GOT7's album. IGOT7 emphasized that they were not blaming Golden Child or their fans, and that they were seeking answers from the label. Accordingly, the hashtag trended was "#Woollim_Explain_AlbumDesignConcept
" and did not mention either Golden Child or fans.
Netizens seem to agree that the two albums indeed are quite similar. Top comments include, "It's just a carbon copy. I was gonna just pass this but it's just too similar..", "Isn't this way too similar?", and other similar comments.
