“Produce 101 SE2” has left a complicated feelings to the fans. Though the despair of not being able to see their favorite boys until their debt made them sad, top 11 boys from different entertainments performing a year as a group raised a high expectations of fans.
The top 11 boys, now called Wanna One, will soon be debuting and there has been some controversies regarding some issues. The issues were about them being too similar to that of groups already existing. The first controversy was about how they introduced themselves. Her is how Wanna One introduce their group.
And here is how NCT introduces themselves.
We can hardly tell the difference except the fingers being all stretched or making number 1. Introduction of a group is a unique sign and defines their identity, therefore, Wanna One’s way of introductions overlapping with that of NCT made fans furious.
The second controversy is about the official color of the group. Official color is also another factor that represents a group’s identity. The color is mostly used by fans in making good and cheering tool for their idols in order for idols to recognize them. Having a same or similar color with another idol group is unacceptable to fans.
The color official color of Wanna One is exactly the SAME as that of SEVENTEEN. Fans say, it’s SEVENTEEN who has been using the color first, and asked Wanna One’s entertainment to change their color. However there is no official statement about this issue from the company yet.
