YG Creative Director Defends NewJeans Against Accusations of “Copying BLACKPINK”

YG Entertainment Creative Director Defends NewJeans Against BLACKPINK's Plagiarism Accusations

On June 10, ILLIT's agency, Belift Lab, posted a video on YouTube accusing NewJeans of copying various other artists.

In this video, BLACKPINK was also mentioned, with the agency alleging that NewJeans plagiarized a concept from BLACKPINK with knee-high socks and uniform clothing with tennis skirts.

Defense of the Former Creative Director of YG Entertainment

In response to these accusations, a former creative director of YG Entertainment, who was at the agency during BLACKPINK's rookie period and was likely in charge of the mentioned concept, sided with NewJeans.

In particular, the former director posted a screenshot of the accusation on his Instagram story with the caption “Totally different.”

In addition, fans also pointed out that before BLACKPINK, SM's girl group f(x) popularized the concept of tennis skirts, and the person responsible for f(x) was none other than Min Hee-jin – the “mother” of NewJeans. This therefore invalidates Belift Lab's allegations.

Really Hybe they are abusing, their story is really ridiculous, they can't let it go? No, they always have to add more, Hybe did not necessarily plagiarize Newjeans, they were just inspired by their concept but here Hybe is abusing it, trying to show that Newjeans is copying other groups so that we drop it. deal with Illit, it's simply ridiculous, personally I'm with Newjeans, because at the beginning I was for no one, but now with everything that Hybe has done, in short I hope that their story will end, and I also hope that Newjeans will continue to exist!

Woah, I was right to choose YG as my preferred agency!

Aseunchae

Me too !

Yass

If we talk about plagiarism or inspiration Ador / NJ are not all white MHJ is there to open his mouth and accuse illit of copying NJ while she herself took the concept and almost the same mv from Japanese groups (pajama girl, speed) or the jeans group but as usual the hypocrites will talk about inspiration and on the other side illit gets shot down from all sides and you protect yourself NJ but illit also needs it

You say the terms thank you

I loved

I really feel that with 5th gen, YG is becoming a good agency. Now their groups are regular and the promotion is good. They try new things with King Kong or Stuck In The Middle, they seem to be less afraid of leaving their comfort zone than before.
Before they were the worst and Hybe the best, I think they swapped.
It's cool not to get into childish accusations, each more ridiculous than the last, and to focus on the quality of the content. They must have guessed who anyone who walks in there is going to be doomed.

Respect to YG who refuses to play the game of Hybe and Belift. Belift had better wake up and realize that BHS is stuck in a slump that is beyond it.

Forget about it, the vast majority of Korea apparently took the side of MHJ and his daughters (or at least the articles and opinions published by Korean Internet users under them). There is no one more blind than he who knowingly refuses to see. There is no one more deaf than someone who knowingly refuses to hear. The beast to be slaughtered is Hybe and behind BTS is my opinion. Jealousy and envy have always stifled haters. Don't waste your time, I say FESTA to shut the haters' mouths. Jin is here. FEEEESTAAAA

Laurent

No, no, the army is not behind anyone except perhaps NJ who did nothing to them. But they refuse to be manipulated and the only ones who have done so are Hybe and BHS…
Just see the aespa controversy with ridiculous comments from BHS and Aespa who defends NJ and congratulates them. That says a lot about hybe

____Moonatic@

You hybe he owes you money or it's just free hatred

____Moonatic@

Here we say festa and we let the HATERS pour out their hatred

Seagull

It’s crazy how you twist the facts!! BELFIT is intelligent not to accuse Newjeans of plagiarism...he demonstrates through these photos that it would be "easy" to accuse of plagiarism concepts belonging to all of kpop and it is by showing photos of Black Pinck that he supported his remarks !! Don't turn the problem upside down! It is Belfit who is suing Mhj for defamation and claiming damages because these lies hurt Illit!! Their video is calm and collected and not “hysterical” I hope that those who swallowed his lies will wake up…

K-pop curious

Mounette, I will end up believing that you are a repressed fan of NewJeans / MHJ!

Jin having returned from the army, I hope this will soothe your heart and that you will know how to redirect your time and energy better! Stop railing against NewJeans and MHJ (and everything related) under articles you could easily ignore.

And with that, happy end of Festa.

You've understood everything

You said it all my dear

The toxic ones bring back the name of HYBE frankly when it's for good things you consider the agencies individually but when it goes into a tailspin everyone looks for HYBE when Source music blocked the hateful comments on LE SSERAFIM no one mentioned the name from HYBE now that BELIFT LAB is doing something they don't like they're all looking for

Even YG is jealous of HYBE's success they want to see it go under they will never defend HYBE that's for sure
