Super 7 rips off SNSD's "Hoot"

27 Oct – Taiwanese girl group Super 7 who have recently rose to fame
for allegedly copycatting South Korea's favourite, SNSD, is now
criticised for performing a SNSD song at the prestigious Golden Bell
Award in Taiwan, according to soompi.

In a recording of their live performance, it can be seen that the
group performed a cover of SNSD's "Hoot," clad in the same outfits and
following the same exact choreography as the Korean girl group, but it
is not the best imitation.

After seeing the video, netizens have questioned the real motive
behind Super 7's cover performance at such an important stage.

The Super 7 performance was highly criticised not only for its
lacklustre show and the fact that the group is only dancing to another
group's song. Some even stated that the group is unworthy of being
onstage for such an important event.

A lot of netizens, including Taiwanese fans, voiced their disapproval,
"This is a Taiwanese awards show, not a show in Korea."

Others said, "The fact that they couldn't perform to their own song
means they're not ready to be a true artist."

"Why did you even debut?" they added.

Super 7 have been at the centre of controversy since their debut for
having strikingly similar concepts and looks as SNSD. Their title
track, "Mai Luo Suo," have also been under fire for featuring very
similar costumes and overall concepts to that of SNSD's "Hoot."

Golden Bell Awards is an annual Taiwanese TV show award found in 1965
and sponsored by the Taiwanese government. It is one of the most
prestigious awards in Taiwan, often called Taiwan's equivalent to the
Emmy Awards.
