Not only is the quality of the title song “OO” in question, NMIXX is also involved in a controversy over alleged plagiarism. Starting from the concept and visual of the MV that looks similar to ATEEZ’s “Illusion” MV. Even the costumes worn by the members are said to be similar to the ideas of foreign designers FRISKMEGOOD.

Unfortunately, the issue of plagiarism does not stop there. After NMIXX’s first dance performance for “OO” on “Weekly Idol” was released, some netizens noticed that their point dance move looked similar to the viral “scorpion leg” dance move by Xu Jiaqi THE9.

Xu Jiaqi’s “scorpion leg” move for the song “LION” was once a viral dance challenge, especially on TikTok. Since “OO” has the same moves, some netizens have begun to suspect NMIXX’s choreographer of plagiarizing Xu Jiaqi.

However, fans began to defend NMIXX by saying that this choreography was also performed by TWICE’s Momo in 2018. As can be seen below, Momo also performed similar moves to NMIXX and Xi Jiaqi when performing at the 2018 KBS Song Festival.

Multiple dance moves that are similar to each other is nothing new in K-Pop. Each performance has its own characteristics that require the effort and skill of the artist. This time, maybe netizens were too harsh on NMIXX when they thought that this was an act of plagiarism.
