While HyunA was performing her comeback single “Lip & Hip” on the stage, Red Velvet and G-Friend who were sitting at the audience seat had contrary reactions. While G-Friend was surprised and full of admiration, Red Velvet imitated a sensitive choreography of HyunA then laughed with each other.
Since Melon Music Awards 2017 (MMA 2017) ended on 2 Dec 17, there have been a lot of scandals related of this event such as backstage affairs, awards as well as non-stop fan wars. Most recently, arguments about G-Friend and Red Velvet’s attitude towards HyunA’s performance on the MMA stage have exploded.
Everyone knows that, the concept that HyunA is chasing is sexier and stronger than G-Friend, Red Velvet as well as most of other Kpop girl groups. There were many times when her songs and performances were criticized because their content was too sexy and even aphrodisiacal sometimes. Not everyone will easily accept HyunA’s concept, but gradually, the audiences change their point of view and consider it as a unique feature that can only be found in HyunA.
HyunA’s performance at MMA 2017 was not less sexy and darling at all. In front of a lot of idols and fans, HyunA did sexy choreography such as licking her fingers or touching her boobs. However, it was not her choreography but the other idols’ reactions that were the reasons of arguments about this performance.
When HyunA was licking her fingers, all members of G-Friend seemed to be very shocked at her daring concept. They were literally open-mouthed, “freeze” and continuously showed their amazement. Though some people said that G-Friend was overacting, others considered them as normal reactions because obviously G-Friend’s concept was totally different from HyunA’s.
However, the most controversial thing was the attitude of Red Velvet. When HyunA touched their boobs, Yeri started to imitate and laughed with Joy. Their actions seemed not to be anything serious, but some netizens assumed that Yeri was making a joke on HyunA. At the same time, some people thought that their laughs in this case would make HyunA and her fans feel offended.
