Netizens want to know what’s going on.
K-pop fans are asking if Choi Yena, a former member of IZ*ONE, and Yuqi, a member of (G)I-DLE, are making fun of Olivia Rodrigo.
The new title track for Yena‘s new album, “Hate Rodrigo,” which will feature Yuqi, will be her return song.
When netizens saw the name of the song and the teaser, they knew it was about Olivia Rodrigo, an American singer-songwriter and actor. Yena‘s music video looks reminiscent of Rodrigo’s “deja vu.”
Even a picture of Olivia Rodrigo is on a poster in the teaser movie.
Yena had previously hinted at her return with an idea that was similar to Olivia Rodrigo‘s SOUR record cover.
With all the references to Olivia Rodrigo and the title of the song being “Hate Rodrigo,” some Internet users are asking what’s up. Are Yena and Yuqi really making fun of Olivia Rodrigo?
A story says that “Hate Rodrigo” will be a fun song about being envious of someone. The song “jealousy, jealousy” by Olivia Rodrigo came out in 2021. So, it seems like more of a tribute than a jab.
Fans have said that Olivia Rodrigo is a favorite of Yena‘s. It’s also not like her to be mean to other people.
Yena and Rodrigo have made similarities between themselves and other people before. “Lxxk 2 U,” Yena‘s last song, was compared to Rodrigo’s “good 4 u.”
