Back in 2019, when M2 shared ITZY‘s Relay Dance video to “Dalla Dalla” taken at the 2019 KCON Thailand, member Lia received some online criticism for “being a lazy dancer“. K-Pop fans commented that she “never wants to dance” and “doesn’t even try”. Such online opinions fueled ITZY fans to come to Lia’s defense though — and over time, the criticism died down.
Then, on March 12, 2020, ITZY graced Idol Radio with an awesome in-studio dance performance to their newest bop, “WANNABE”. The members, dressed to impress in their black and white color coordination, looked gorgeous AF as they carried out the choreography.
Unfortunately, the video uploaded on YouTube stirred up some netizens to nit-pick at Lia’s moves again. These haters commented, “Lia is being a slug again, with her movements only half way done.” According to their analysis, Lia didn’t “use her shoulders” in this move.
These netizens are convinced that Lia has been constantly “slacking” on putting in the full effort while dancing — and that ITZY’s other videos, like the dance practice videos, capture these moments too.
