The "Oshi no Ko" series has sparked a significant buzz, with its adaptations expanding its reach. The tale of Aqua Hoshino's quest for revenge has resonated with audiences far and wide.
Its online presence isn't just about new releases. The series has stirred up unexpected debates. A recent hot topic is the striking resemblance between the uniforms worn by characters in the series and those of an actual school.
Hanlim Multi Art School in South Korea, known for nurturing entertainment industry talent, seems to have uniforms identical to those depicted in "Oshi no Ko". Yet, creators Aka Akasaka and Mengo Yokoyari have not commented on whether there's any connection.
Views on this issue vary. Some fans see it as a nod to reality, while critics or those unfamiliar with the series might call it a copy or even plagiarism.
Here's what fans are saying:
- «The similarities are too great to be coincidental».
- «Is the author or illustrator responsible for this resemblance?».
- «It's intriguing that this was even noticed».
- «"Oshi no Ko" always had the vibe of a Korean drama».
- «Reality shows and romances are big in South Korea too».
- «Considering South Korea's influence on school uniforms, this might be justified».
- «The skirts stand out. "Oshi no Ko" should've altered them to avoid copycat claims».
