Chinese knock-off B1A4 upsets fans

A Chinese knock-off group for B1A4 recently appeared.

An online community posted pictures comparing popular Korean boy group B1A4 to a Chinese boy group called Fighter.

The Chinese group is known as a knock-off of B1A4. They wear similar costumes and accessories as B1A4 and have done so since their debut. Jacket photos and even their websites are the same and it has upset many Korean fans.

Moreover, the concept for the groups are also the same. The Chinese group wears white and black polka-dotted costumes and they are even petting a dog in their jacket photo just like B1A4. It appears the Chinese group has copied everything about B1A4.

People responded: “Can an officially debuted group do that?” “I feel like that we really have to protect Korean singers.” “That’s too much. They are copying B1A4.”
