Unsurprisingly, Trouble Maker has become the hot topic of discussion lately with their comeback. However, it is not just their sexy image that is being discussed, but also their MV's similarity to Rihanna's MV for "We Found Love." It appears that in the on-line community, the MV is under great scrutiny and in the midst of a plagiarism controversy.
Online screen captures from both MVs were uploaded side-by-side for comparison. Such captures include these moments: standing by their car and hugging in a field, drifting cars, throwing something at a wall, drinking alcohol and throwing up, having fireworks near their car, and having love scenes both in the car and their house.
Based on these pictures alone, there do appear to be a few similarities between the MVs--well, enough so that at least some netizens are convinced of plagiarism. However, it is hard to say at the time and the agency has yet to address the situation.
On the internet, netizens wrote, "Hallyu~ saying Hallyu when you steal a famous American singer's MV; aren't you even embarrassed?" and "It appears the producer has no sense of pride since he stole someone else's idea."
Do you think the MVs are similar enough to warrant a controversy? Check out the videos below and stay tuned for more updates.
