Rocket Girls, a girl group that debuted from the Chinese version of Produce 101, is under fire for their latest teasers and music videos being similar to f(x) and Red Velvet.
Rocket Girls’ latest teaser featured a purple background with orange tints and graphics that were much too similar to f(x)’s teaser image for “4 Walls”.
Not only were their teasers similar to an SM girl group. Netizens pointed out similar scenes from their latest music video that paralleled with scenes from various Red Velvet’s music videos.
A scene from Red Velvet’s music video for ‘One Of These Nights’ featured a backdrop of the sea as Seulgi walked out through a door that floated mid-air among the sea. The same visual theme was featured in Rocket Girls’ ‘Born To Win’ music video (as seen above).
Netizens also pointed out how the stoic faces of the Rocket Girls’ members as they sat in the middle of a tennis court closely resembled Red Velvet’s ‘Russian Roulette’.
One of the Rocket Girls’ members is also seen in a closeup while shooting an arrow, similar to how Yeri shot a crossbow in ‘Peekaboo’.
The props used in the music video were also brought to light as the angle and positioning looked similar to Red Velvet’s ‘Dumb Dumb’.
Neither SM Entertainment or Tencent have yet to make a statement regarding the plagiarism accusations.
