Youngjoon has had a few minor controversies around him and his choreography. The main ones being that Hoshi from idol group Seventeen often contributes to the choreography of their songs was never properly credited for doing so.

The other main controversy rose in 2017 when netizens accused Youngjoon of plagiarizing Seventeen's dances to use for Twice's song "Knock Knock". However, the dance moves they noted are particularly minor, and he did choreograph both songs so not much came of this accusation.
