Reports are stirring on SNS that YG Winner-Team B copied a choreography from I.aM.mE dance crew without asking permission. It started from a fan's tweet asking the dance crew's official twitter account if they have any affiliation with YG Entertainment.
Upon retweeting, member Brandon expressed his frustration through his personal twitter account and wrote, "I don't understand why these Big Asian companies just don't hire us to choreograph for their artist instead of steal* our stuff all the time!"
Another member Jaja also wrote a Facebook status.
