Even though rookie boy group Snuper wrapped up promotions for their 3rd mini album 'Rain of Mind' last month, netizens found it a heated topic of discussion when one online community user pointed out that "[Snuper's] concept seems to be VIXX."

One online community user recently uploaded the photo below, writing, "The left side is VIXX, and the right side is Snuper. They look so similar there are people who see Snuper and think that it's VIXX, but there doesn't seem to be any sign of feedback." 

What do you think?

Fans began to add to the online community user's claims, sharing more photos of Snuper and VIXX, supposedly wearing similar stage outfits and sporting the same concept. Most of Snuper's stage outfits seem to be during promotions for their latest track, "It's Raining".

Some comments included, "I for real thought they were VIXX. Of course, after I saw their faces I realized they weren't but...", "They literally copied 'Chained Up'?", "At this level, it might as well just be that they borrowed the outfits?", "The coordinator is at the biggest fault, but even the artists know the concepts and outfits before their comeback, so didn't they think it was a little too similar?" etc. 

What do you think about the comparison?

As someone who has been in the presence of both Vixx and Snuper, (fan meetings, tiv shows etc) they are very different groups with very different musical aestetics and at the end of the day, the music is what is most important. Clothing worn during promotions come and go and trends come and go very quickly in South Korea. Everyone wears what is trending at the moment. For instance the chokers. This is the first time Snuper tried a sexy concept. I believe the stylist ight have gotten inspiration from Vixx for Snuper. But again it might just be a coincedence. There are countless boy groups in Korea, it is really hard to be super original. End of.

Then again...what is original in K-pop anymore?

I'm not hating on anyone but isn't this a bit too much. I mean they copied VIXXs Chained up and Love me do outfits down to the colours and open cuffs. And not only Snuper but BTOB also had similar styling with VIXXs Closer outfits - the medalion around the collars. The groups are not to blame though, it's the stylists that need to give some answers.

Omg now why on earth did they do this

There have been multiple groups who had similar concepts to this.....

if you comb through all the idols performance, you might find more similarities. does it mean someone copy off each other? no. outfit unfortunately will always be similar to each other.

A fan of both groups. It's pretty similar. Maybe Snuper's comeback were inspired by VIXX. But It's Raining is one hell good song and better than VIXX song, Just saying.

What a delayed reaction since SNUPER's already done promoting "It's Raining."

The problem here is that VIXX wore the clothes not so long ago (during "Fantasy" promos, August-Sept), also the stylist don't even try to add something different to the outfit... it's like when you go to a store and buy and wear the same thing the mannequin has on (and the choker just adds the 'Chained Up' vibes). Honestly, I want to go to Korea and slap the stylist because of their lack of imagination lately, even BTOB's outfits for 'I'll be your man' were kind of similar to VIXX's 'The Closer'... ¬¬

Although Vixx doesn't own the concept of velvety shirts with collars, credit can be given to them for making it a trend! I wouldn't blame Snuper for following Vixx's trend at all, they are just clothes for promotion. It's not like they took anything else.
