To be honest GWSN is really similar to WJSN in many ways. Aestethics, name, design, concept. Both being girls from "space". Sounds similar music wise too. As an Ujung I was at first furious about this. But now i'm flattered that they draw inspiration from my angels.

seriously?? they look nothing alike other than the art style. also, wjsn didn't invent that art style, many other groups have done that. for the name similarity, many kpop groups have similar names. ex. mamamoo & sonamoo, B.I.G & H.O.T, Wonder Girls & Wonder Boyz. just because a group has similar names, doesn't mean they're copying.
