VAV’s Debut Era: Plagiarism Controversy 

vav boy group

VAV started its debut by releasing its first mini-album, Under The Moonlight. This mini-album debut was released on November 2, 2015, with a total of 4 songs. Meanwhile, their stage debut was held on November 8, 2015, on SBS’ ‘Inkigayo’ by promoting Under The Moonlight.

But unfortunately, the new rookie group VAV, which released their first debut under the agency AQ Entertainment with a mini-album entitled Under The Moonlight, did not escape being accused of imitating the VIXX group.

The post published on Pann entitled “The group imitating VIXX ;;;;;” The creator of the post also wrote, “I’m afraid that a group like this will debut and the media will claim that they are the ‘second VIXX’ ㅠㅠㅠ ㅠㅠㅠ”. They then posted a compilation explaining the similarities between VAV and VIXX in terms of choreography and makeup styles, similar eye accessories, and dance moves.

They use a style of make-up and soft lenses that are similar in color. Even though the VAV members in the photo are not wearing soft lenses, they imitate eye make-up and use accessories around their eyes like VIXX. Even their choreography looks the same.

The way of standing and how a member in the middle makes a different move while the others pointing in a direction are very similar. They also made the dance moves look very similar to the VIXX move on the right. And ends with a caption, “What’s wrong with a group like this to to to. I myself am not one of the VIXX fans, but it pisses me off. I think popularity has its own price, and not 100% of popularity is positive ㅠㅠㅠ ㅠㅠㅠ”.

Some of the top comments corner VAV because their concept is almost similar to the concept of the previous boy group that had already made a debut or come back, such as :

[+131, 0] Reminds me of Romeo. VAV blatantly mimics the choreography of both (Romeo and VAV) so cute ke ke ke

[+93, -3] And their concept is werewolves … They say ‘moonlight’ is the same as VIXX. VIXX even has a song called Moon Light, kkk.

The title song Under The Moonlight is a song written, composed, and produced by composer and producer Kwajimodo and will capture the public’s ears with trendy EDM and Hip hop music. Besides, the wolf performance of the title song intro and the choreography that expresses the moonlight will provide an eye-catching sight.

To get to know VAV when they were still running promotions during their debut, let’s see more information in this session below!

VAV’s Debut Song’s Music Video and Lyrics Meaning

VAV’s Under The Moonlight‘s lyrics meaning a fictional story depicted through a music video and someone looking for their true identity when the moon rises. Under The Moonlight also shows a group of men who transform into different figures when under the moonlight, which depicts the transition when vampires appear, as is the concept of this boy group.
