Fans also pointed out that Nayeon’s solo concept resembles the pictorial photo of Jennie in the November 2020 issue of W.

Currently, JYP Entertainment has not yet commented on this controversy.  TWICE’s fans think that this is just a coincidence, because Jennie and Nayeon have always had completely different styles and vibes.

  • Jennie didn’t invent this style, concept, nor makeup, but it was Jennie that popularized it through her solo debut, since she totally fits it. At first glance, it really looks like Jennie. Just this one time, of course. 
  • If you don’t want to be compared to another, then do something different?
  • I’m not anyone’s fan but this really reminds me of Jennie. Hope Nayeon has a successful solo debut anyway
  • Both Jennie and Nayeon are gorgeous so both have my support. You guys are just not used to Nayeon’s new makeup style. She has always looked like this.

In addition, this is not the first time TWICE Nayeon was accused of copying BLACKPINK Jennie. Previously on December 25th and 26th, during the Seoul dates of TWICE 4TH WORLD TOUR, Nayeon’s double pigtails and girlcrush styling also reminded netizens of her competitor.

Unlike their fans, TWICE Nayeon and BLACKPINK Jennie are close friends in real life. 

Highly anticipated but Nayeon’s solo comeback is facing unwarranted controversies. Therefore, fans are hoping for a clarification on JYP’s behalf.
