A controversial debut – “The more expectations fans raised, the more disappointed they got”
With the formation of so many talented members, NMIXX was expected to have an explosive debut. The girl group decided to release their debut song “O.O” on February 22nd, 2022. However, immediately after the MV of “O.O” was revealed, NMIXX received mixed responses from netizens.
According to netizens’ comments, “O.O” is uncatchy; its melody is so messy and unmatched, while the lyrics are meaningless. Many fans were disappointed and they even questioned why JYP selected such a bad song for a promising girl group like NMIXX.
Not stopping there, NMIXX was also accused of copying the ideas and worldview in the music products of the boy group ATEEZ. Especially, a designer from FRISKMEGOOD also pointed out similarities between NMIXX’s outfits and their designs. In addition, many other dresses and costumes worn by NMIXX were also suspected to have been “inspired” by the Haute Couture collection by Viktor & Rolf, which was introduced in 2019.
While NMIXX is being surrounded by back-to-back controversies, fans are criticizing the girl group’s agency – JYP Entertainment. Making a rought start, but with their visuals and talents, 7 members of NMIXX will probably shine brighter in the future. However, JYP should be more careful in promoting the girl group.
