However, since NMIXX made their debut, the K-pop girl group has already been plagued with a handful of issues that are understandable none of the members' faults. Notably, fans do not blame NMIXX, instead JYP Entertainment has been the one garnering the backlash.

Just recently, the K-pop group held their debut showcase after it was postponed due to the members being diagnosed with COVID-19. In the showcase, NMIXX once again proved that not only are they visually gifted, the K-pop girl group is also immensely talented.

But it did not go as smoothly as netizens and K-pop fans saw similarities between NMIXX's hand greeting and their label-mates and seniors, ITZY. When the members of NMIXX introduced themselves, the members did so with two connected V's with their fingers.

Seeing this, netizens and fans were quick to notice that NMIXX's introduction looked similar to ITZY. Ryujin, a member of ITZY, created the introduction and due to this, it is even more special to MIDZYs (the fandom name of ITZY).

Some fans went on to show images regarding the issue and fans of both K-pop groups shared their opinions, expressing their woes towards NMIXX and ITZY.

Concerns have been raised towards both JYP Entertainment and the SQU4D (the latest artists division that also handles NMIXX). A lot of fans noted that both K-pop groups deserve only the best and that NMIXX should have a more unique introduction.
