IVE changes introduction greeting in response to netizens noticing similarities to EVERGLOW

USER CONTENT

As previously reported, Starship Entertainment's new girl group IVE received criticism for having similar hand gestures to EVERGLOW in their introduction greeting.

Both introductions use a three-finger gesture. For IVE, the three fingers are meant to resemble the "E" in IVE.  While EVERGLOW's represents the "E" in EVERGLOW.

The greetings can be seen here at the start of the videos.

Netizens took notice of this, which led to criticism.

On December 3 KST, Starship Entertainment announced that they would change the gesture.

They officially stated that "We were not aware of any similarities with other groups. This will be amended for the future. We sincerely apologize for the matter, and will be more careful to not let this happen in the future".

Meanwhile, IVE made their official debut with the single album 'ELEVEN' on December 1.

That's good. Smart to clear up any issues as quickly as possible so they won't haunt their debut promotions.
