They say IMITATION IS THE BEST FORM OF FLATTERY. But sometimes, there is such a thing as TOO MUCH flattery, or better yet, we are reminded of the statement : Flattery will get you nowhere. In this case, some Asian stars seem to look up to their western counterparts and sometimes may appear too much the same as they are – whether it be in music, videos, choreography or in their overall style.
On the other hand, copying doesn’t have to mean getting someone else’s ideas and claiming it as your own. It could also reflect some kind of INSPIRATION. Or perhaps it could be a form of tribute, a recreation or reinvention.
DISCLAIMER: Some of these images if put side by side in comparison may be pure coincidental, we don’t really know for sure.
