For almost 15 years, the 3-member all-girl Japanese idol group, Perfume, have thrilled fans all over the world. And now, it seems that a Kpop group consisting of Korean and Chinese members have apparently “riped-off” the group’s style.
According to Perfume fans, 13-member Kpop group, Cosmic Girls, also known as Wu Ju So Nyeo or WJSN, copied Perfume. This is because the music video for the lead single of their debut album seems to be copied from Perfume’s 2013 single “Magic of Love.” Here’s the teaser MV for “Happy”:

Korean company Starship Entertainment and the Chinese company Yuehua Entertainment created the group, which has Korean and Chinese members.

Whatever the reason, fans are now debating it if its blatant or accidental or just paying homage. What do you guys think?
