You mean the animal mascot that was already shown to have been used before by Red Velvet? The group who do references to their past comebacks EVERY comeback? 

 

Anyways I'm bringing up Taeyeon and Sunmi because they were decked out in Y2K for 2021. BLACKPINK as well conceptualized their BORN PINK concept with Y2K as far back as May. Even Nayeon used Y2K for POP right before newjeans came out and I'm assuming Talk That Talk by TWICE was conceptualized around then too with more Y2K. 

 

Newjeans can't be representatives for a trend that they were already super late to. :swan:

The RR reference explains WHY the mascot is a cat. It does not explain HOW the cat is depicted. Yall gonna tell me that the cat's STYLE looks more similar to RR than the NJ bunny...??? You can both reference a past comeback AND be influenced in its new depiction.

 

Okay. So the SM directors might have had more influences. Cool? Once again NJ was specifically brought up because of the above point.

 

I don't really understand your last point. It's like saying elvis presley can't be representative of rock and roll because the genre had existed for years and others were already doing it.

Do you not realize that the creative director of NewJeans was the creative director of Red Velvet? You realize she’s just reusing concepts, right? :skull: 

So RV has a new creative team, okay. And why did they choose to reference an old MHJ idea in a similar aesthetic to the NJ bunny? Once again, influence can go both ways. Pointing out that NJ had influences from RV/MHJ is not a rebuttal of the idea that RV may have taken some influence from NJ.

What are you talking about. Y2K has been prominent in fashion worldwide since the beginning of this decade. Multiple groups and artists have been using the Y2K aesthetic as a concept BEFORE NJ.

 

The fact the Y2K trend has been seen as a concept in multiple comebacks, multiple performance looks and individual looks automatically negates your opinion on NJ being the representatives of the genre. Y2K has been pretty much inescapable in Kpop for the last two years, you're not making any points.

Thanks for sharing the examples? NJ has been by far the biggest phenomenon that came out of the y2k trend and if that's not how you want to define being a main representative of a trend, that's cool. Never implied they were y2k trendsetters/starters. And my point abt the current iteration of the RV cat taking influence from NJ doesn't really hinge on this argument, so...

That “point” is so weak though, they’re not similar at all lol and you look sillier with the fact that the cat featured in three of their comebacks in the last few years

Every iteration of the cat has been wildly different. Photorealistic CGI, 80's (???) cartoon, etc. This is the first time it's been shown with this thick outline cartoon network aesthetic, which is the same style the NJ bunny has been drawn in. As a whole they're not THAT similar but to reject any and all similarities is just disingenuous. This isn't an argument about plagiarism. How "weak" or "strong" an influence is doesn't take away from its validity.

The SM Sheep jumping through hoops to not see the obvious similarities. :rip:

Yes, Red Velvet did similar concepts earlier in their career, but them doing it again right after NewJeans smashed isn't a coincidence. :skull: Like...c'mon. They haven't done anything like this since... 2016? And then they decide to go back now? 4 months after NJs debut? 

 

It's like when Britney and Xtina took inspiration from Janet with In the Zone and Stripped, and then Janet came back with Damita Jo. :clap:The OG showing the new girlies how it's done, it's cute!

thank god there's someone else culturally and visually versed in this thread.

 

i can almost guarantee you this image was on their moodboard :bibliahh:

They’re not similar :rip: & I don’t see why a group would copy album art rather than actual music it really doesn’t make any sense. What does that do for RV realistically? You’d think if they wanted to serve NewJeans they’d comeback with music that feels like NJ. 
 

It’s a classical pop trap song. NJ’s are not the trailblazers y’all want them to be :coffee2:

 

Cookie could even be argued to be very RV esque.
