►►Debuting girl group SISTAR copies 2NE1?

Standing up as ‘Edge-Dol’ (t/n: edgy idol), SISTAR has become a controversial topic due to their immense similarity to 2NE1.

SISTAR is a four-member new girl group debuting in April, rumored for both their vocal qualities and dancing skills.

According to their company Starship Entertainment, “SISTAR is a girl group with both the skills and style to create a new cultural code with their popping music, dance moves, fashion sense and more and will rise up as a style icon for the 10s and 20s youth.”

SISTAR made their existence known through a fashion magazine photoshoot on March 19. But they have been criticized for having an all too similar concept as 2NE1 at the time of their debut.

DCInside 2NE1 gallery says ‘SISTAR this is a bit too much’ and puts up a comparison image. Their statement points out that the funnel Gong Minji is holding is the same as the one the SISTAR member is holding.

However, having the same items in a photoshoot is something that can happen. What was more surprising was that the name 2NE1 went by before their official debut was also ‘SISTA’. As evidence of that, there are articles that have been posted up in March of 2009 just before 2NE1 was debuting, when they were just known as ‘Female Big Bang, group name is SISTA.’

Because of this, Netizens’ curiosity on the relation between SISTAR and 2NE1 is being amplified.

    I heard that the fans gave 2NE1 the name “SISTA”, and that it was never actually a name for them >.>

    i think sistar fit more of a wondergirls category but the style would be 2ne1 well they are wearing that kind of style because its the trend and 2ne1 set the trend making people think they are copying 2ne1 4minute,f(x) and lee hyori doing the same style.
    honestly i dont see no particular unique talents in sistar they seems prettty decent and only how good their songs will make them successful but 2ne1 became successful because their unique amazing talent a sick dancer,amazing rapper,unique vocals and beuaty and their style and their great songs.sistar dont see no amazement so far no unique vocals/voice or no amazing rap or dance but lets give them a chance probably they love 2ne1 and want to be the 2nd 2ne1.
