Netizens agree that TWICE’s new concept is indeed very unique, however, not very original. Many are claiming that their concept is greatly similar to the concept of EXO. 

In 2012, EXO debuted with the concept of supernatural powers and it is known to be their signature concept til this day. 

Regarding the similarities between TWICE and EXO’s concepts, netizens commented, “Why is JYP doing this..”, “EXO fans have the right to be upset”, “I’m not a fan of both groups but you know you automatically think of EXO when you think supernatural powers…”, “Wtf, please stop copying their supernatural power concept”, “We need feedback from JYP.”

On the other hand, some netizens stated, “I don’t think this is worthy of controversy. Their style doesn’t really overlap”, “It’s not like EXO created the supernatural concept. I don’t understand what the big problem is”, “I don’t see the issue at all. EXO are not real aliens or really have supernatural powers, and they’re not the creators of the concept so… Is there a reason why other groups can’t do this? People are overreacting.”
