Chinese girl group Rocket Girls, a group that consists of the finalists for China’s ‘Produce 101’, has recently been receiving criticism for what fans claim as plagiarism.
f(x) fans have claimed that Rocket Girls’ recent comeback teaser looks much too similar to f(x)’s photo shoots taken during the ‘4 Walls’ era. Of course, f(x), still remains popular in China and is often looked up to by both Chinese idols and agencies. However, having photo concepts that look too similar wouldn’t exactly go unnoticed and potentially causes bad publicity.
In addition, Red Velvet fans have also stated that the MV for Rocket Girls’ latest comeback single is a copy of Red Velvet’s MV.
Fans have criticized the Rocket Girls’ agency by saying negative things such as
“Chinese people being Chinese.”
“They are thieves.”
Do you agree with the angry fans?
