Not only the concept photos but their MV also seem to resemble an MV by an SM artist. As you can see in the photos below, several scenes from Rocket Girls' new MV are greatly similar to the scenes from Red Velvet's MV.
After seeing the similarities, netizens commented, "I'm not even surprised. The Chinese being Chinese," "Copying once again," "Thiefs", and "They're always copying."
