On October 16th, EVERGLOW, who appeared on the first day of K-Contact Season 2, performed a cover stage of BLACKPINK’s “How You Like That”, which was recorded directly. The part where EVERGLOW has been criticized by BLACKPINK fans has been criticized for changing BLACKPINK’s signature sound that appears in the introductory part of the song.
EVERGLOW sang on the cover stage by changing BLACKPINK’s signature sound “BLACKPINK IN YOUR AREA” to “EVERGLOW IN YOUR AREA”.
Many overseas BLINK (BLACKPINK fans) have pointed out this problem and criticized the fact that they changed only the group name without permission while using the signature sound as it is.
Since their debut, EVERGLOW is said to have a group concept and song atmosphere similar to BLACKPINK. While the denunciation that “it gained fame in cosplay and even the slogan is slogan” has gained the consent of many BLINK, there is also a counterargument that some fans may have requested the organizer.
It may be natural for BLINK to get angry. When covering a song, it is the minimum etiquette for the senior group to cover the original song as it is. It has been criticized that it is rude to the senior group to change only BLACKPINK’s signature sound “BLACKPINK IN YOUR AREA” and put the name of their group in the changed part.
Recently, the girls group EVERGLOW covered the song “How You Like That” by senior group BLACKPINK at an online concert, but after the online concert, they were criticized by BLACKPINK fans.
