Fans are at a loss for words after coming across one foreign artist’s MV, and noticing its blatant similarities to a K-Pop MV with over 300 million views!
The controversial MV in question is a video titled Lyta‘s “Hold Me Down“. The video begins with a female lead sitting in front of her vanity, when the drawers suddenly start shaking.
The female lead pulls out the drawer and the singer emerges, sitting on top of a foundation cushion.
The scene changes to a table with a cereal box. The female lead removes the cereal box to find the singer accompanied by dancers, using the table as a stage to perform.
Did any of the scenes above remind you of anything in particular?
For many fans, the MV was way too reminiscent of a very popular K-Pop hit from 2015, GOT7‘s “Just Right“. In the “Just Right” MV, a young girl finds GOT7’s Jackson in her vanity drawers.
GOT7 then also emerge behind a cereal box, performing for their one-person audience.
More detailed scenes like a tiny person in a bowl of candy, the female lead trying to touch the tiny performer riding on a zebra, and more also displayed striking similarities.
Netizens commented, “Even before I scrolled all the way down I thought of ‘Just Right'”, “Kekekekeke it’s literally the same. It’s so ridiculous it’s funny”, “So funny kekekekeke, maybe it’s actually a GOT7 parody??”, “I don’t know what country this singer is from but they literally just copied GOT7”, “They chose the wrong K-Pop artist to copy, they have no idea how huge GOT7’s international fanbase is”, “They didn’t even try to hide the fact that they copied it…”, and more.
