Under an online community post titled 'Red Velvet swept up in controversy with their Lolita-themed elements,' the netizen shares a bunch of captures from the group's latest MV and other "proofs" to make the argument that Red Velvet's concept is Lolita.
These proofs are as follows:
1. "A space reminiscent of a school environment, the cliche vault props and 'Bulma' outfits"
2."The blank expression, hand position, childlike attire, and the downward angle"
3. "Children's wear on Irene"
("Here, Irene is seen holding up a doll")
"The fact that children's wear is what pops up when you search Irene's image on Google..!^^"
4. "The album photos"
("The Lolita-esque poses of raising your legs in a skirt")
"Photos that solely emphasize the legs in Lolita books"
5. "Angle that draws your eyes to the legs of Irene who is wearing short skirt"
Despite these proofs, it seems people are not so convinced. Many were skeptical and derisive, leaving snarky comments on the post. They wrote, "According to the OP's logic, G-Friend must be Lolita, too, since they wore gym clothes; Orange Caramel must be also Lolita since they wore princess-like flared skirts while holding up dolls; Lovelyz have to be Lolita since they also emphasized their legs on their album; Girl's Day only wore swimsuits so they must be Lolita; man, it must be soooo hard to look for a group without a Lolita concept."
"Wait what, how are those children's clothes lmaoo. Those pieces are clothing for adults sold on 'Gucci'? So if they wear it in a princess-like fashion, it's automatically 'Lolita'?"
"Just what kind of thoughts are going through your head that you'd think gym clothes are 'Lolita.' And those clothes are for adults that are for sale on 'Gucci'; I think your thoughts are too wrapped up in Lolita^^ Thanks for reminding me that there are dumbasses in this world."
"Sighhhhhhhh OP, please go die choking on some food."
"hahahahahahaha how do you live your life? hahahaha I've got pants like that, so am I Lolita, too? hahahahaha you must be so twisted, tsk."
"You've written such bullshit so sincerely," and more.
