- One of the mean comment they read was about their lack of originality and how they are copying the style of K-pop bands

P-pop sensation SB19 recently guested in GMA's show, Briganda, where the members of the group responded to mean comments from netizens about them.
The group smartly addressed their bashers who criticized the group for their physical appearance and their performance. A netizen also lambasted the group for not being original and accused the group of being K-pop copycats.
SB19 member, Josh responded to the criticism by denying that they copied K-pop groups. According to Josh, their fashion style, and their songs are not copied off of other K-pop boy bands.
"Hindi po Korea ang ginagaya namin, sariling style lang po namin lahat, pati po pananamit, lahat po 'yan. Pati pagsulat ng kanta hindi lang po siya naka-Korean"
The group's leader, Pablo also explained that though they were inspired by K-pop that does not mean they lack originality. The leader also opined that it is natural for people to use concepts they are attracted to.
"Lahat naman po ng tao sa buong mundo meron po tayong tinatawag na sense of universality. 'Pag meron tayong bagay na nakikitang maganda, we take it and utilize it. Hindi naman po sinasabi na pangongopya or talagang kinukuha 'yung sinasabi, kumbaga influenced po tayo ng lahat ng bagay sa buong mundo."
Though the members of SB19 are all Pinoys, they still have a connection to South Korea. After all, the group had their training under Korean management company, ShowBT. Even their name, SB19 was influenced by South Korea. The letters SB were taken from the initials of ShowBT while they got the number 19 by subtracting the Philippine country code (+63) from the country code of South Korea (+82).
However, SB19's massive success is well deserved as they have continuously shown everyone how talented and dedicated they are. While many will continue to compare them to K-pop bands, no one can deny that SB19's songs and performances have their own distinct Filipino flair that has captivated many fans around the globe.
