While “GingaMingayo” was playing, Dohyun imitated the choreography for the song while doing hilarious facial expressions, such as sticking his tongue out and rolling his eyes.

As many fans know, especially Billlie’s fandom Tarutaru, the song “GingaMingayo” has been trending recently because of Tsuki’s facial expressions on music shows. Although many are impressed by this, some are poking fun at the female idol because of exaggerating her expressions and stage presence.

MIRAE Dohyun’s actions during the V Live reminded the viewers of Billlie Tsuki, hence, he was criticized for this.

A clip of Dohyun allegedly mocking Billie Tsuki’s facial expressions was uploaded on Twitter by one user as well on an online community. Many netizens flocked to these posts and left criticism directed at the MIRAE member.

Why do you have to be so rude?” “His members look like they’re telling him to stop but he doesn’t care,” and “Whoever the target is, his intention to mock is too clear.”
