[KPOP] 2NE1’S GOT A COPYCAT
A copycat of South Korea’s top girl group 2NE1 has shown up in Thailand, following the emergence of China’s version of Girls’ Generation.
The “Candy Mafia” music video by Thailand’s four-member female group Mafia has many similarities to 2NE1’s music video “Fire,” press reports said. In particular, the Thai members copied costumes and styles of their counterparts from 2NE1 to a large extent.
An Internet user was quoted as saying, “We can easily find that the motor bike scene in `Fire’ was stolen by the Thai group. Nonetheless, 2NE1 is superior to Mafia in many respects.”
Last week, a copycat of South Korean idol group Girls’ Generation became the talk of the Internet after a photo of the nine-member Chinese girl group named Idol Girls appeared on a famed domestic portal site.
