The Round Lollipops

There is actually somewhat of a similarity between the two photos shown below. But given that K-Pop is all about being bubbly and cute most of the time for female idols, it's hard to reach a verdict on whether using lollipops as photo shoot accessories is owned by one agency.

I have see many group use the same concept...but why target Twice in this matter very abruptly.... whatever Twice do is like a golden egg to this world....so stop criticism and start praising them..

The only thing is that Twice does not have talent like SNSD.

You're so right - no one from SNSD can beat our little IOI cutie!

Truth be told - many girl groups are based on SNSD's model - the fun, popular, pretty girl. Even YG admitted to changing his mind about singer's looks. So while 2nd Gen. 2NE1 had a rebellious outcast/ girl crush image, 3rd Gen. BlackPink were made to be the cheerleader/ girl crush group. BP's tough-fun-popular-pretty girl image appeals to the widest possible fan segment.
So if anyone says Twice are similar to SNSD. Yeah, so are just about every other 3rd Gen. girl group.
