Fashion brand 'Paris99' comes to agreement with SM Entertainment after Red Velvet's comeback plagiarism controversy

AKP STAFF

Fashion brand 'Paris99' has come to an agreement with SM Entertainment following Red Velvet's comeback plagiarism controversy.

'Paris99' previously wrote on Instagram, "No one on the team @smtown ever reached out to collaborate on designs, which I would have loved to participate in," referring to Red Velvet's comeback concept for their latest album 'The ReVe Festival: Day 2'.

On August 30, the designer updated, "I've spoken with SM Entertainment's visual director, and we've come to an amicable understanding of each other and become friends, and look forward to working together in the future." SM Entertainment also confirmed the same statement.

All SM need is just to throw some money and case closed. I don't think it's a big deal since both parties are now get what they want.

SM probably fired the employee that suggested those cloths design without telling them the original source of it and now they have to deal with it and probably have to pay more than if they just collaborated...
"The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources." That quote only works if your references are just part of the whole, if it is not you better not present it as yours..
