– Ah I don’t know~~~ If Min Hee-jin does it, it’s creation; if someone else does it, it’s all plagiarism~~

– And they criticize ILLIT for plagiarism? LOL

– They copied another group’s name, concepts and even music videos, but if they do it, it’s “following trends”~ If someone else does it, even if it’s just a similar vibe, it’s all plagiarism~~~ LOL. Even a great artist wouldn’t be this arrogant.

– How is this plagiarism? LOL. Denim fashion, retro fashion are common.

– I watched Jeans’ music video, and it’s more like a re-creation of the high-teen style. If that’s considered plagiarism, then Michael Jackson’s Moonwalk would be plagiarism too.
