A netizen is hard pressed in trying to convince everyone that Red Velvet's concept in "Russian Roulette" is Lolita-themed.

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.

Lolita is a 1955 novel by Russian novelist Vladimir Nabokov in which a middle-aged man becomes sexually infatuated with a 12 year old girl. The man is obsessed with her and holds her as the object of his sexual fantasies, referring to the young girl as his "Lolita". Following the book's publication, the term has since been adapted to refer to the concept of a young, sexually precocious girl who is or has the appearance of being pubescent or under the age of consent. It has been used in porn and other media as a categorization for the sexualization of young looking girls or alternatively the celebration of a youthful, innocent aesthetic. In kpop specifically, it has come to mean a group/idol who acts/dresses in a youthful manner (resembling a child).

OMG LOL he must be joking for real hahaha

But the concept is looking innocent and acting like it was nothing (blank face) when you're tring to murder someone. It's the same concept as satiric cartoon as Itchy and Scratchy from Simpsons : a cartoon looks innocent because it's drawings but the plot is totally dark and gore, this kind of contrast make the concept more confusing and absurd, but definitively genius. Seriously, people can only see visual and can't interpret themselves the meaning of what they see : Try to burn someone alive, premeditate a murder by making prototypes (ball exploding on the cactus), empty a pool to throw someone from a diving board, make them eat metal cereals to break their teeth, make someone fall asleep with some book (under the bed) and throw her on the road and get her run over, trying to crush someone with a fridge, a piano in the stairs, with shelves .... All they can see is how cute and young the girls look : YOU ARE CREEP.

Oh pleaseeeeee... Then ALL the K-POP is about "Lolita"... Just Get a life netizens...

Lol the girls are trying to kill each other in the mv and they cry lolita

AngelOfLight Thursday, September 8, 2016

actually i thought RV has always follow similar concept (it's their style), the innocent, doll-like as seen from their debut Happiness and Dumb dumb dumb? I wouldnt say this is exactly Lolita tho (if ppl are referring to the sexual term). But more of Lolita fashion? Like wearing child-like/fairytale-like dresses. This is actually pretty common in Japan. So it may just be an influence from the fashion sense of Lolita but NOT the dirty one... I think those ppl are the dirty-minded ones because they are thinking too much to get to this accusation like wth. I wouldnt even think of that if i didnt see this article.

actually what is lolita, an older men who like a little girl, or an older girl act like a little girl? /roll eyes

Lolita is kind of sexualized infancy. Particularly young, pure girls (sometimes boys I guess) being portrayed as very naive and trusting and sexually accessible to an older person. In some cases its just a fetish where some legal aged person will dress like a child and still model with adult sexuality. But other times it kind of hints at paedophilia which is where it brings a lot of disgust from general society.

I'm quite sure it definitely hasn't been used in RV music video though.

fairypanda Bunny_Muddles Thursday, September 8, 2016

I'm sure of that too, I didn't see a sexy young girl concept in RV, sure its looked like little girl, but they didn't sexualise it
