When the MV and song were removed, they immediately caught the attention of music fans, especially NSWER (fandom). Fans continued praising the band’s concept, vocals, dancing skills, and visuals.

However, some raised their eyebrows after seeing NMIXX’s new release, claiming that the band was only imitating their fourth-generation girl groups, especially NewJeans and aespa.

In the online community, a network user suggested how significantly the concept of NMIXX changed after their powerful and intense “OO” freestyle debut. The author claimed that NMIXX initially “copied” the aespa concept when they were hugely popular, and changed to something lighter when NewJeans became the new “newcomer”.

The OP went on to explain that while there are differences in the MVs of both groups, the amazing similarities in their hairstyles, freestyle choreography as well as their outfits were recognizable.

When the post went viral, NSWER quickly came to NMIXX’s defense, calling out the author for his far-fetched thesis. First, the fandom emphasized that the current look of NewJeans is inspired by the year 2000, but in fact it was followed by many idols such as TWICE, VIVIZ, BLACKPINK and others.

Regarding their vibe, people were confused because the two groups were not alike. In terms of a significant change in concept, fans once again reminded people that NMIXX follows a genre called “MIXX POP”, which combines two or more genres in one song, so there is a possibility that the group will use a sound that is currently in vogue.
