Indeed, when you watch the two videos side by side, there are some striking similarities:
[coffee making fairies vs. music making fairies]
[process of making coffee vs making music]
The stage director expressed his disapproval on his social media accounts:
"They copied the coffee fairies and music fairies videos that I made for Exolution and Exordium lol. Please don't do that"
This is the video Kwon Soon Wook created for EXO:
Netizens commented about the claim. One wrote, "I can't be the only one who noticed how similar they are..." Another said, "'MAMA' is terrible in so many ways." Another netizen argued, however, "The overall concept is similar, but you have to realize this a very generic concept." Others disagreed, "If the person who created it feels like it was copied, we should take it seriously."
What are your thoughts on this issue? Was the director's work stolen?
