Why can't you guys figure out the difference between one concept and another. It is not even that hard! Saying Aespa is copying Blackpink because they have a "girl crush" concept is the same as saying StayC and Weeekly are copying the old Twice because they have a cute concept. Do you get what I am saying? Songs from the same concept can sound vastly different, and if someone uses a concept similar to another group doesn't mean they are copying them. Plus, Aespa has an AI concept while Blackpink doesn't. The only similarity between them is the apparent "girl crush" concept. Girl crush can have many meanings and it is stupid to say that they are copying them because of that. This is pretty much like saying that Blackpink are copying 2ne1 but any normal person can figure out the difference between the two just by listening to one song of theirs. Basically, get a brain if you have one.
Thank you for listening to my tedtalk.
