Netizens noticed the posts from the rookie Vietnamese girl group on September 14. One image of the group’s comeback shows similarity to BLACKPINK’s “Born Pink” world tour announcement poster. DREAMeR’s image shows pink, protruding lightning bolts coming down from the top of the image, while BLACKPINK’s uses pink fangs.

DREAMeR member Bao Uyen’s introduction poster also shows striking resemblance to BLACKPINK member Lisa’s “Pink Venom” comeback teaser photo. Uyen is wearing a long-sleeved pink top, pointed nails, long straight hair with pinkish hues and pinning stick ornaments, blue contacts and pink lipstick, all features of Lisa’s own visual look. Even a shattered glass effect seems to be replicated.
