Many praised Soyeon’s brazen performance due to her calling out MAMA, and even giving parallels to BIGBANG G-Dragon’s MAMA 2014 diss.

Threading Parallels Between Soyeon & G-Dragon: Are the Two Rappers Comparable?
K-pop fans expressed that Soyeon’s act shouldn’t be compared to what G-Dragon did, as the latter talked about how thoughtless MAMA in distributing awards recklessly.
It also comes with the notion that he already made his mark in the industry, and that it’s time for newer idols to shine.
Meanwhile, they claimed Soyeon’s context was her asking why she didn’t receive any awards.

Here are their comments:
“This is the difference between a group who has hit daebak for 1 year VS real top idols. GD is smart so he’s dissing the entire award show, meanwhile Jun Soyeon is asking why she didn’t get any awards..”
“Am I the only one who thinks she tried to copy GD?? But her talent can’t replicate what GD did… Young and rich, MAMA diss, what’s up MAMA, What award will you give me this year MAMA?”
“Her flow and her content was so similar to GD’s. The difference is that GD already made it, that’s why he’s dissing. Meanwhile Jun Soyeon is whining because she has no awards.”
“Do you think that GD and Jun Soyeon can even be compared..”
“For realㅋㅋㅋ GD is not acting like a loser because he didn’t get an award.”
Others are neutral to the matter, as they believed debating won’t solve any issue.
“Why are people always forcing GD in situations, please stop…”
“If you’re going to compare you can just say that Jeon Soyeon is talented like GD and stop there”
