Girl group 4minute made a loud comeback with new single Volume Up, but it’s the noise member Hyuna isn’t making on stage that is raising eyebrows.

The girl group member found herself at the center of a lip syncing controversy when a netizen posted a screen capture of 4minute’s April 13 performance on Music Bank on a message board.

In the photo, which was posted under the title ‘4minute’s Hyuna, Who Doesn’t Even Open Her Mouth During a Lip Sync Performance,’ Hyuna is seen exuding her signature sexy appeal; however, the issue is that while the lyrics to her part of the song are on the screen, the singer’s mouth is closed, and she appears to be focused only on the choreography.

Some netizens reacted negatively to the performance, calling her a “dancer” and “not a singer” and saying that there was no excuse for her to not be moving her lips, at least, during the lip sync performance, while others gave her the benefit of the doubt, saying “Maybe she forgot.”

Her agency later revealed that Hyuna has owned up to the mistake and apologized.

The recent controversy also follows fellow member Nam Ji Hyun′s shaky performance on the April 12 broadcast of Mnet′s M Countdown, which she apologized for as well.
