Red Velvet fans are displeased by Black Pink's debut MV. 


YG Entertainment's brand new girl group recently unveiled "BOOMBAYAH" and "Whistle" from their debut single album 'Square One', gaining tremendous attention worldwide. However, the rookie group seems to be gaining negative feedback from many Red Velvet fans for the supposed similarities between the "Whistle" MV and Red Velvet's MVs for "Dumb Dumb", "One of These Nights", and "Automatic".

As you can see in the captures below, fans online claimed that the angles and the props used for Black Pink's MV are too similar to Red Velvet's MVs. Angered fans are going as far as calling Black Pink 'Plagiarism Pink'. Some netizens seem to agree, commenting, "So I wasn't the only one who thought of Red Velvet when watching Black Pink's MV..", "Yeah I see a lot of similarities too", "It reminded me of Red Velvet and EXO's MVs", etc. 


On the other hand, some stated, "It reminded me of 2NE1. Not so much Red Velvet", "Calling it plagiarism is too far", "It's not even that similar when you actually watch the whole thing", and more. 


What are your thoughts on the comparison between Black Pink and Red Velvet?

LOL The MV's are "similar" because both MV's have the same director. So it's the directors foult for not being creative enough to think about other scenes. But their concepts are totally different

i thought it was similar when lisa turned her head around, but that's about it. Isn't it the same mv producer? He should be more careful and creative, there's no way he didn't predict some sort of comparison.
