A Pink's pink lightsticks receive criticism for being identical to Girls' Generation

A Pink has recently come under fire for due to their lightstick being almost identical to more senior group, Girls’ Generation.

Netizens began posting their disapproval of the new lightsticks when an image was posted of A Pink and Girls’ Generations lightsticks side by side.

Comments read, “So tired of A Pink copying Soshi…”, “I really don’t understand… They said they wouldn’t use it, why use it again? Just because A Pink has the word pink in it?” and more.

Some fans seemed to be especially upset, as they accused A Pink fans of spreading photos of SONEs at concerts and spreading them as A Pink fans photos.

One netizen in particular said, “You can call fighting over colors immature all you want but the colors are what represent fandoms at concerts like Dream Concert. There’s a tweet of Pink Pandas taking a Soshi fanseat picture and lying about it being their fanseats and it shows that there’s room for confusion like that. That’s why official colors are important.”.

How do you feel about this issue?

LOL. Sones are always coming after A Pink so hard. Hopefully they make it a different shade of pink.

Fandom wars over this stuff is so lame, but Apink or whoever manages them should try to avoid stuff like this. It's so blatant and pointless.

ia. the fact that naeun has worn the same outfit as yoona multiple times is so annoying.

I had a good laugh with my friend about this but I do feel like the light sticks look a lot alike so I can see why hardcore fans would flip...

This is ridiculously stupid but a lot of the mentality in fandoms are

Though what color would you expect a pink to use? Orange? Or does that copy orange caramel?
tempestdance 25th-Aug-2014 03:36 am (UTC)
uh, like any other shades of pink, obviously, like puce /s

(puce is ugly as fuck)
tempestdance 25th-Aug-2014 03:36 am (UTC)
isn't this old news or have i been on the internet so much that anything over a day old feels like history
turtles_tszx 25th-Aug-2014 03:39 am (UTC)
Well tbh, it kinda look the same...

lightstick/fanclub colour wars amuse me. its so ridiculous
there are only so many standard colours manufacturers can churn out
hearttaek 25th-Aug-2014 03:43 am (UTC)
The names in the master list of fanclubs and corresponding colors made me realize how many shades of green/pink/blue there are

Fandom colors are always a sensitive topic in kpop fandom, so why dont companies just do their job right of fan management department.

Wasnt there just recent drama between winner fans and elf over blue?
princetabi 25th-Aug-2014 03:42 am (UTC)
I heard about that actually. Like, there are different shades of blues and pinks so maybe the companies could get a different shade.

i do think that sones can be and do too much but I don't blame them for being pissed towards apink and their fandom when their management goes above and beyond to copy snsd in every way possible.

they really do look identical. management should've known that this would piss off sones

They could've at least made the lightstick design different if having the same color is unavoidable.

Like how Big Bang uses yellow crown lightsticks and BoA uses yellow star lightsticks.

They should do that. A Pink just got a new logo so they should have incorporated that into the design.
pumpkinskin 25th-Aug-2014 04:00 am (UTC)
But SNSD has so many different kinds of light sticks.
ababobaby 25th-Aug-2014 04:10 am (UTC)
any older fandom would rag on newer fandoms if the shade of color is almost the same tho

anyway apink should just go bigbang style (ive always envied theirs) and create lighsticks with shapes (but im pretty sure they'll get flack if they use a heart shape)
hearttaek 25th-Aug-2014 04:13 am (UTC)
Iirc csjh fans didnt like that sones got pink too. But sm made sure to give different names.

Didnt snsd have heart shape balloons at the beginning bec an older fandom owned pink?
digitalqueen 25th-Aug-2014 04:22 am (UTC)
fighting about fandom colors is dumb, but lets not act as if apink doesnt have a history. they obviously do it on purpose.

A Pink's management has been trying it for a while now. It's like they know it's only a matter of time before GG disbands and they want people to rebound to the next closest thing. Won't be long till they start adding members to make it 9.
princetabi 25th-Aug-2014 04:40 am (UTC)
i doubt they'll add more members. They haven't even replaced the member that left.
