It goes without saying that NCT 127's recent "Cherry Bomb" concept was one of the group's most colourful and memorable, so much so that it is easily identifiable. Just recently, a Chinese modelling group released some new concept images, and fans couldn't help but notice how similar these images were to NCT 127's "Cherry Bomb" teasers.
Chinese modelling group Shanqi Culture shared a number of teaser images titled "Monster" it their Weibo page, and fans noted that the colourful concept is almost exactly the same as NCT 127's "Cherry Bomb" concept.
Following a number of complaints by fans, the images were deleted off Shanqi Culture's Weibo page.
Here are some of the comments made by fans regarding the similarities between Shanqi Culture and NCT 127's concepts:
- "I know the 'Cherry Bomb' concept is pretty and all but why copy it like that??"
- "???? This is too similar to 'Cherry Bomb'. The cherry character is even the same. What is wrong with them?"
- "Why? Why do you have to copy NCT?!"
- "They have absolutely no creativity. It's like copy and paste... omg."
