Others were a little more conflicted over the covers, saying that while the two members are talented vocalists, they did not harmonize in the covers enough.
Clips of their covers have gone viral on TikTok, earning more than a million views and thousands of comments. Many specifically say that Yoon’s vocals were too powerful compared to Sieun’s softer singing style.

Following the release of the video, Yoon and Sieun sent messages on the Dear. U Bubble platform, talking about their covers. Yoon specifically stated how difficult doing the songs were and that she tried her best.
Global Chart in 99 Seconds! It was completely live, so it was difficult. But I tried my best. I feel like I could probably do better if I tried again. There’s no need for regrets, I know. But I guess I wanted to do really well since I was performing other artists’ songs…
