Chinese netizens have left negative comments for LOONA’s appearance in ” Queendom ” season 2. The group is accused of plagiarizing Chinese culture.
In the latest episode of “Queendom 2” which aired on Thursday (7/4), LOONA was unable to participate in the recording of the first round because its members tested positive for COVID-19. This certainly leaves a very big regret in the hearts of fans.
However, their first round stage performance was finally released as a surprise video. LOONA performed the title song “PTT (Paint The Town)” from their fourth mini-album released last year with traditional Korean music arrangements.
After finishing the performance, LOONA said, “We prepared a lot for the first round and we feel relieved when we remember the preparation process. We think we can prepare for the second round with a more comfortable feeling.”
However, the video immediately drew criticism after its release. There are many Chinese netizens who gave malicious responses to LOONA’s appearance with various comments such as the following:
“Hanbok is China,” said one netizen. “This is Chinese Wuxia style, not hanbok,” added another netizen. “This is plagiarizing the style of Chinese martial arts,” said other netizens and many more.
Meanwhile, in this program LOONA also talked about his difficult time during a hiatus due to problems related to the agency’s investment. They suffered so much, until finally the opportunity came to promote themselves in “Queendom 2”.
Yves said, “I saw the comments when the article came out. There were a lot of responses saying, ‘This is so unfortunate. They could have exploded.’
Hee Jin added, “We don’t know if we can continue promotions. We are very afraid. This is an opportunity that comes at a very important time. We are determined to hold on to it and be recognized.”
