According to a report by AllKpop, "Butterfly" ("三人行") sounds exactly the same from the BTOB's song which was composed by the member, Jung Ilhoon. Some fans even cited that the melody is not only similar but the song structure as well: "the beginning instrumental, the length of the vocal verse, the length of the rap and Changsub's part were the singing switches back and forth."

Meanwhile, Melodies, BTOB's fans found out that the compose of the song "Butterfly," Mickey Lin had listened to "Movie" since March 2017, in a Spotify playlist but the composer did not admit the alleged plagiarism.
