SM “Controversy over similarity of Aespa’s MV, resolved with the original author”

Last month, German visual artist Timo Helgert alleged aespa’s MV had used his work without permission, and many netizens noticed similarities to K/DA’s “POP/STAR” MV. On December 22, SM Entertainment responded to the allegations in an interview with Sports Kyunghyang, stating, “We contacted the artist and company regarding some scenes in aespa’s ‘Black Mamba’ music video, and we discussed plans and explained our worldviews.”

The label continued, “The artist and company in question understood our planning and production process, and they confirmed there was no objection to the music video scene.” cr

1. SM always pays after they plagiarize;

2. As expected.. But why didn’t they talk to the original author before this happened?

3. Please contact the original author in advance before doing anything, whether you want to collaborate or ask for permission… SM plagiarizes but singers are always the ones being criticized

4. Well, it’s good that you have a lot of money

5. F*ck, SM always plagiarizes and solves it with moneyㅋㅋㅋ

6. SM is really shameless

7. In the end, the kids who once shielded SM were idiotsㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

8. Just pay from the start and collaborate, don’t steal ideas

9. How much did they pay? I’m curious

10. Ugly and disgusting
