Netizens’ opinions are split after claims that BTS allegedly plagiarized EXO in recent promotions.
Many K-pop groups wear similar outfits due to certain trending fashions or overlapping styles. Girl groups may all wear short pants due to the hot summer and may also wear sailor outfits or dresses that look very similar. But do boy groups have overlapping stage outfits too?

Titled “Am I The Only One Thinking BTS Plagiarized EXO?” here is the direct translation of the post and comments below.
“There are too many things to consider them as coincidences. Especially the logos? They look really similar and same to me T_T Does that only occur to me? Oh yeah, I’m not a fan of BTS or EXO T_T”
EXO member’s names behind their shirts
BTS members’ names behind their shirts
Group photo of EXO
Group photo of BTS
[ +123 / -8] I don’t know if you are really not fan of both but why bring up something ARMY and EXO-Ls don’t care about hahahahahahahhaha
[ +95 / -16] The group photo together was celebrating their 2 years together. It was a family concept and not a school uniform. BTS has always put their names behind their shirts since debut. I don’t know about the logo though..
[ +78 / -17] I’m not a fan of both but I don’t know why BTS gets criticized so much. Is it because they gained so much popularity?? or the ‘sajaegi’ incident?
[ +40 / -42] Eh… I didn’t think of this at all but it looks really similar if you look at it this way.
