Netizens expressed their shock at the similarities, “Isn't this basically just a copycat of aespa?" "I'm not a fan of either group, but the first images really look identical." Huh...isn't this just the same thing?", "To be honest, the first images are exactly the same.”, “Why are they so similar?", "While watching the CG version of Jennie, I also thought that more than Jennie, it looked more like Karina."

Others disagreed, "But [aespa] copied them first.”, “I think it's aespa copying BLACKPINK","Why would BLACKPINK even copy aespa for? It's a song made for a game, which is why they used similar graphics" ,"I don't think you can say they copied for just having black hair, blonde hair, and short hair. They're such common hairstyles."

Aespa released the concept photos for their winter album in 2021 whereas Blackpink released their MV this year on July 29.

'Who is copying who?’ is left for people to decide or whether it was just a simple coincidence?
