Vietnamese girl group DREAMeR are “playing with fire” following plagiarism accusations by BLACKPINK fans.
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.

BLACKPINK fans were not pleased and called on YG Entertainment to issue a response to the matter.
There’s a group that steals BLACKPINK’s brains from posters, photos, costumes, etc. I’m from the same country as them and I find it disgusting to blatantly steal words like that. Can international BLINKs help us speak out on this issue so that DREAMeR can’t do any more acts of… pic.twitter.com/1aetJRObXt
