However, this is not the first time the group has faced this problem. Plagiarism remains one of the top concerns in the K-pop and hip-hop industry. The eight-member boy band has made clear time and time again that, they are done with others stealing their concept and ideas. The group and the fandom have allegedly accused other artists of stealing their concepts, ideas, choreographies, costumes, and other elements multiple times. 


At the moment of his New Thing challenge, VATA was accused of copying ATEEZ's iconic dance move from their 2019 single Say My Name. Meanwhile, ATINYs have openly condemned a number of musicians for what they believe to be obvious instances of copying the Wonderland crooners. This list includes nSoyeon of (G)-IDLE and NMIXX, a new girl group from JYP.
