There are polarised opinions with regards to his performances, with some saying that he is mocking Buddhism, while others feel that he is a bridge between the younger generation and the religion.

At least one of NewJeansNim's performances, which was slated to take place in Kuala Lumpur on May 21, was cancelled after Malaysian authorities slammed his shows as "completely inappropriate" and said that they "should be stopped".
