MIRAE‘s Dohyun is under fire for imitating Billlie Tsuki‘s facial expressions during a live broadcast on April 4th.
When multiple MIRAE members listened to BILLLIE’s song “GingaMingaYo (the strange world),” Dohyun (left) can be seen using exaggerated facial expressions that many netizens viewed as distasteful.
During the song’s comeback stage, Tsuki went viral and received almost 3M views to date for her unique facial expressions, making it clear to netizens that Dohyun’s actions are a direct imitation of her.
Two days later, he issued a statement apologizing for his actions.

Hello, this is MIRAE Dohyun.
I would like to apologize for what happened on the VLIVE of April 4th on my way home.
First of all, I would like to express my deepest apologizes to Billlie.
I’m sorry also to the people who watched and felt uncomfortable watching the video.
I have delivered my apologies to Billlie through our management and I would like to personally apologize to them myself.
I’m sorry for the trouble to many people for my rash actions. I’ll work harder and more carefully from now on. I’ll take the criticisms you’ve made for me, who still lacks a loot. Once again, I’m very sorry.
Additionally, Dohyun appeared on a live broadcast to verbally issue his apology.
