Returning to ILLIT, despite being the hottest rookie today, since their debut until now, the g.irl group of BELIFT LAB still has to face countless comments "like NewJeans". Indeed, from the lineup, to concept and music, ILLIT always reminds people of seniors in the same group.

The controversy was further ignited when Min Hee Jin publicly criticized HYBE and Bang Si Hyuk for "copying NewJeans to create ILLIT". From here, the youngest g.irl of the trillion corporation was labeled a "copy", suffering a lot of irony. The upper-level war brought a lot of trouble to the bands below.

Recently, a news site with the headline "ILLIT doesn't feel ashamed to be called a copy of NewJeans" caused mixed comments. The post quoted the thanks of the leader of ILLIT Yunah - immediately after being accused of plagiarism by the "mother" NewJeans.

"I want to say thank you to the people at the company. To our Belif Lab staff, they all know how much effort we put into our debut album. I'm really proud. Although I can't thank you often, I think everyone understands our hearts," Yunah replied on television.

Accordingly, Korean netizens deduce that ILLIT is not innocent in the plagiarism allegation. Even the members supported the group's approach and sided with creative director Serian Heu - who was in charge of the image for the group's debut.

Serian Heu also responded to the image of "rotten fingers" allegedly showing malice towards his colleague. Knet weaves more "conspiracy theories" related to the relationship between ILLIT and NewJeans and senior personnel directly related to the two groups.

However, the above post encountered many objections from "passers-by". In addition to curious netizens, who often weave conspiracies, most think that ILLIT should be protected. The product and image orientation are set by the creative team, artists rarely have the right to intervene, especially rookies.
