Here’s what internet users say:

“ATEEZ always talks about suing others, but at this point they should be sued, right? Even as someone who’s not a fan, it’s too similar looking at it. “

“ATINS are fun. They were the ones who talked about some trip to a utopia while madly hating NMIXX, and now they are penning “what’s similar? It’s such a common idea hahaha ”.

– It’s too similar. Why doesn’t it turn into a scandal?

“I thought they were on the same team.”

“The person who planned Hello Future would be so stunned.”

“But there were always plenty of hippie concepts like this. ATEEZ also developed the grassland concept earlier. “

“Virtually everyone is plagiarizing. It’s really shallow to write it with the intention of criticizing it.

“I don’t think there is anything to argue about. It’s not an album concept, so I don’t think it will even be called plagiarism. “

Do you think the concepts of the ATEEZ 2022 Summer Photobook and NCT Dream’s “Hello Future” are the same?
