T-Ara is now back in the center of controversy not because of bullying or collaborating robot dances with children or pre-recording their comeback performance, but it’s because of their recent outfit that looks all too familiar.
On September 6, T-Ara performed “Sexy Love” on Mnet’s “M! Countdown.” It’s been noticed that their red silk top and black tu-tu skirts closely resemble Girls’ Generation’s outfit during SM Town’s Tokyo concert. Netizens quickly commented, “Whether it’s a Chinese-inspired top or a tube top, it still resembles their outfits.” Although the designs are slightly different, the overall concept is the same.
More netizens who came across the comparisons wrote, “It looks the same no matter how I look at it,” “Looks like they used Girls’ Generations’ outfit as reference,” “It’s a common outfit,” showing mixed reactions to the latest scandal.
T-Ara has currently released the dance version of “Sexy Love.”
Soompiers, what are your thoughts on this issue? Did they knowingly copy? Or is it not even that similar?
