Rookie boy group VAV, who recently made their debut under AQ Entertainment with their mini-album Under The Moonlight, can’t escape the comparisons to their senior groups as they have been accused of copying group VIXX.
On a thread published on Pann titled “The group who is imitating VIXXㅋㅋㅋ;;;;;”, the original poster first commented, “I’m so worried that groups like this are going to debut and media play by claiming that they’re the ‘second VIXX’ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ”.
They then posted a compilation that pointed out the similarities between VAV and VIXX in terms of choreography and even their makeup styles, such as similar eye accessories and dance moves.
They do similar style of make up and wear colored contact lenses. Although the VAV member above isn’t wearing colored contacts they even copy their eye make up and put accessories aroudn their eyes like VIXX.
Even their choreography looks exactly the same
Their stance and the way one member is having a solo performance while others have their hands out towards them is similar.
See their move here. It looks very similar to VIXX on the right.
The original completes with ” What is wrong with groups like this ㅋㅋㅋㅋ. I’m not even VIXX’s fan and this makes me angry. I guess popularity has it’s price and not 100% of it is positive ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ”.
VAV is a six-member group who dropped their debut album on November 2, 2015 under AQ Entertainment. The group consists of members ACE, GyeoUI, XIAO, Jacob, BaRon, and St. Van.
