Praise and criticism
In 2006, as guests on Jacky Wu's show, "Qi Tian Da Sheng," i.n.g was lauded for their dancing ability as well as for their overall potential. Wu's praise indirectly spiked sales of ''Lucky Star'', which shot up seven places in the G-music charts during the week of May 26, 2006.
Netizens have criticized i.n.g for imitiating S.H.E, a girl group that debuted five years earlier. In response, i.n.g stated that they looked up to S.H.E as models of success, and had no plans to make themselves into S.H.E clones. Currently, Gillian and Nara are rumoured to be in the running for a spot as a lead in the Taiwanese series Fresh Tomato For Sauce.
