MAVE is receiving a lot of attention for being the first virtual idol project to have members that look so real. They are also said to look much more realistic than the AI versions of existing girl groups like BLACKPINK and aespa.
Amidst this, netizens are actively calling Karina aespa over the new virtual girl group. According to them, Karina’s AI-like visual this time really proved itself, seeing the MAVE members look like different versions of Karina.
Some even suspect that Metaverse Entertainment took Karina as their virtual idol inspiration. Netizens flocked to comment on their resemblance.
“They look very realistic… If this works, the company will definitely start producing virtual idols. These members can have excellent vocals and visuals according to the company’s tastes. Kind of like V-tubers,” commented netizens. “I’ll keep it simple. From left to right, they are Karina with Pucca hair, Karina with ponytails, Karina with pigtails, and Karina with silver hair,” said another netizen.
“Karina Karina really has ‘visual AI’. Literally all of this AI looks exactly like Karina,” netizens said. “They just look like four Karinas with different styles. It’s no wonder why people keep comparing them to AI,” another commented. “Do they consider Karina as inspiration? I just think the similarities are too strange,” added another.
