On April 24, Seventeen released the long-awaited MV for their comeback title track, "Pretty U". The MV seems to depict boys enjoying their youth together, in bright, pastel tones and an all around fun, laid-back vibe.
However, after viewing the "Pretty U" MV, some fans couldn't help point out the jarring number of similarities between scenes from "Pretty U" and scenes from BTS's 'HwaYangYeonHwa' MV series - "I NEED U" and "RUN".
Here are just a few of the similar scenes from:
Throwing french fries at one another
Running after graffiti
Running on overpasses
Members running into one another/their focal points (where they're looking toward)
Running under bridges
In addition, the two groups also:
spray paint walls and one another/car windshields, camera inside the car
sit around a campfire
Fans have also noted similar follow-the-leader concepts
and lying together in a circle.
Many fans are stirring in various online communities, asking Pledis Entertainment or the MV director for an official explanation.
Watch the 3 MVs below and see if you can spot out all of the similarities. Do you think these MVs are a coincidence?
