WANNA ONE made their highly-anticipated comeback a few days ago with the release of their new single "Beautiful," which has already become a huge success on the charts. However, a post was shared online that thought the choreography looks incredibly similar to one of BTS' songs.

new post, shared on an online community, pointed out that the dance for WANNA ONE's "Beautiful" looks very similar to BTS' choreography for their 2014 song, also titled "Beautiful."

In response to the allegations of plagiarism, WANNA ONE's choreographer Choi Young Joon issued out a statement denying all accusations and explaining:

When I was asked to choreograph the dance for ‘Beautiful’ and heard the song for the first time, it reminded me of a man and woman dancing together. The dance move in question drew inspiration from ballroom dancing and couple’s figure skating dance moves. When I received the guide for the song, it was titled ‘Beauty and Beast,’ probably for security reasons. That temporary title was what made me think of the Beast dancing happily with Belle.
