ATEEZ’s Wooyoung Picks His Favorite Choreography As Netizens Shower Him With Praise For Calling Out Alleged Plagiarism

He’s making ATINY proud.

ATEEZ‘s Wooyoung has been at the center of a debate over plagiarism recently, and netizens can’t stop praising him for his actions.

The issue began when dancer Vata of the WDBZ dance crew on Street Man Fighter was alleged to have plagiarized the famous “driving” move from ATEEZ’s “Say My Name” choreography, which was created by Josh Smith, Johnny Erasme, and Anze Skrube.

Netizens were initially divided over whether it was truly plagiarism or if it was simply a coincidental similarity, but now it seems like Wooyoung may have weighed in.

ATEEZ recently performed at the 2022 Daegu K-Pop Concert and included “Say My Name” in the setlist, despite the fact that it was released three years ago. When Wooyoung’s center part came up, he was seen doing the “biting” sign that dancers often use to signal that a move was copied.

Netizens took that to mean that he also believes ATEEZ’s “driving” move was plagiarized, and since then, Wooyoung has been on the receiving end of much enthusiastic praise from fans who support his actions.

Though there are detractors, Korean netizens and even non-fans have come out in support of Wooyoung, some pointing out that this isn’t even the first time ATEEZ is plagiarized.

It’s no surprise then, that ATINYs would be curious to hear what he has to say on the subject. Luckily, in a fansign on October 10, he was asked to name the song he was most excited to perform…to which he gave the best answer: “Say My Name.”

Fans were only too happy to hear him say that, especially because it really suggests that this is not simply a case of coincidence, as Wooyoung appears to be firm in his opinion. Not only that, but it made ATINYs even more proud of him!

What’s more, he’s not the only one. While some ATINYs hilariously speculated whether Wooyoung had done the “biting sign” on his own or whether he had the support of KQ Entertainment

…his fellow member Seonghwa was seen doing the sign too.

Wooyoung has proven time and again that he will always protect his friends, his group and the people he cares about.

And just as Wooyoung has got his team’s back, ATINYs have his!
