This is what netizens had an issue with.
It hasn’t been lengthy since TWICE‘s Nayeon made a successful solo debut with the energetic title track “POP!” The song quickly climbed the charts, and it’s all because of its catchy beat and spectacular level choreography. Of course, Nayeon herself was one other interesting issue!
However, regardless of how well-received it was, there was one controversy that surrounded it. Netizens accused the idol of plagiarizing trot and ballad singer Lim Young Woong‘s album title.
Taking after her own name, Nayeon’s album is entitled “IM NAYEON.”
On the opposite hand, Lim Young Woong’s album known as “IM HERO.”
Both begin with the identical first phrase, and because the trot singer made a comeback earlier than the woman group middle, folks argued that she will need to have copied him.
Nayeon defended herself when she guested on the TheKstarNextDoor net collection hosted by Jonathan. She was joined by fellow TWICE members Momo and Sana.
When the subject of the controversy was introduced up, she defined that she had no concept that Lim Young Woong had given his album such the same title. By the time she came upon, all of the albums and advertising supplies had already been printed out. It was too late to make as drastic a call as altering her album title.
I didn’t know that once I was making ready mine. But sadly, it was all printed out.
Nayeon was clear and well mannered when she debunked the plagiarism claims. It was merely a coincidence! Since it’s not potential for all singers to debate their comeback plans with one another, coincidences like this are unavoidable.
