    I truly dont think that this person was saying anything about Taemin at all and instead was saying everything about SMs current creative director.



    I don’t agree w the taemin comparison because idek what the comparison was, but i do think that the bag for Red Velvet is a little pushing it

    Bring taemin into your dumb company stan shit expect me to grab your hair


    He is the one whose posters are still up that lady's walls. HE IS HER INSPIRATION.


    If you are implying anything is looked alike, it's copied from him.

  • This reminds me of the time SM stans used to accuse everyone and their mama of plagiarism from wearing school uniforms, using same fonts to filming with an air balloon. But now to them this is just a coincidence :pepe-hehe:

    Not saying this is a case of plagiarism, just amazed by the hypocrisy of it all.

    Interesting. MHJ was Red Velvet's art director when she was at SM.


    So when some Reveluvs accused, say, NJ of copying Red Velvet, they were accusing MHJ of plagiarizing herself, lol.

    Not a bag album version tho, that's just merch

  • Maybe inspiration, min heejin has many good ideas and used to work for sm.

    The bag one is probably not a coincidence.

    I don’t understand the Taemin one tho, I don’t know enough about that


    I need to see comparisons of this lol


    I have no idea what are nj or v aesthetics.


    honestly it's not that big of deal. Not to say stealing someones work is okay, but nothing will ever happen to SM for them to apologize (even though I need to see comparison between both pictures first before I make a final judgement). But it would make sense. She was the creative director there for a long time, guess they still miss her "creative mind".

  • Lulu i respect you and I’m not coming at you so i will ask you kindly to not be defensive with me. If anything is looked alike its because Min Heejin created the modern aesthetic of SM (2002-201x) AND Ador (2020-now) AND HYBE (2022-now). Its just common sense that the same person is going to have the same approach to visual branding, especially when considering that the same current existent team working on branding were brought in mostly under MHJ.



    Taemin does plenty of amazing things and none of them, i hope, are graphic design because thats not his job. However his work that others have had influence on should still be subject to criticism.



    The only similarity between these two Blossom88 is that they both utilize a box but like wtf of course a box is holding the item. V’s looks like a shipment box for something fragile, and Taemin’s is clearly a shoebox which are just different ideas. If thats the case then Taemin is technically copying literally anybody who’s ever shipped their items in a box????








    (Not for lulu per se)

    HOWEVER THE BAG SITUATION DOES DRAW SOME MF QUESTIONS

    '*•.¸♡ NewJeans ♡¸.•*'

    all this time. . . .。・:*˚:✧。

  • MHJ ideas are all copyrighted under the name of SHINee and Fx. It doesn't matter how many other groups she used them on, people associate that anesthetic to f(shinee).


    If she can't create new vibes for her new work, that sounds like a her and her employer problems to me.


    This is Taemin's first comeback after military, so no, don't expect his fans to go easy on any shit disturbing.


    As for other groups or whatever bag, I DO NOT GIVE A FUCK.

    It’s not SM copying Mhj, she worked for Sm for so long and she was involved a lot with Red velvet so she took whatever she was doing with Sm to her own company and that’s why Newjeans and Red velvet get tangled in plagiarism

  • Lol well look at how creativity is suddenly purchased and owned.


    Enjoy that comeback, i promise i’ll go tell mommy mhj to change her references for you

    Thats how it works?


    When an artist director works for Disney or Pixar, do you think they are the owner of the works copy right or the company?


    Idgaf how many times she reuses her ideas, kpop beyond SHINee doesn't exist for me.

  • Aside from album packaging, this just looks like typical MHJ concept she did while she was in SM. Way too basic to claim anything imo, especially water concept. It is something I see among SM idols a lot.


    I think in this case only album packaging can raise a question.

    I mean, my only question is why did SM let this roll out after seeing Tae's concept. They must've seen Tae's photos/videos already beginning of August, after all it's one of their jobs to keep tabs on other artists. It's really embarrassing for them. They were well aware that this would cause people to raise their eyebrows. They just set Taemin up for dragging.

    Actually it's a bag version :|

    it was the Deluxe limited edition album version of their japanese debut

    where the DVD, CD + bags were coming together


    the japanese album had 3 version, the jewel case, the photobook version, and the Deluxe limited edition


    and MHJ wasn't involve in the process of SNSD, so it's basically her who took an idea from SM and run with it when she left SM

  • lmao they are already crying at Twitter, calling shawols bullies for slapping them. 🤣

    why didn't their team check Taemin's press your number and ace concepts? Cause he did first and he is giving a nod to his old works in this album.


    This was filmed in LA, early August. Do you think Taemin's team just pulled this out of their hat in couple of hours? It takes a long wait time to book that filming location. This was planned as soon as he got out of military.


    It's Taemin's posters that are still up MHJ walls. He is her inspiration.

  • But still different from a bag version.

    The bag is additional merch for the album, just another inclusion. For NewJeans, the bag is the album design and marketing.

    In a similar vein, Rosé's limited edition photobook comes with a bag, but like sjjd, just an inclusion

    It is not SM fault Hybe signed up with MHJ one of the most unoriginal people who has been recycling her concept for years.


    What you have seen with V is literally nothing original, it is just pinterest aesthetic.

    Something we have seen in SM since like 2015

  • newjeans fans need to sit down

    They have really grown to be too annoying and it is giving me signs of becoming another army and blinks


    Mhj was with SM. You can be sure whether those aesthetic / ideas were already with SM the team or came up by MJH herself alone. Moreover, the concepts have been done so many times by different groups before. It is nothing spectacularly new. Claiming someone own the concept/aesthetic is like claiming Blackpink owns the girl crush concept or Twice owns the cute concept. They just popuparise it /resurgeance. Not the creator
