Netizens point out the similarities between Jeon Somi in “Anymore” and BLACKPINK’s Rosé in her solo debut

Somi’s concept in her new MV for Anymore sparks controversy.

On December 25, Jeon Somi treated fans to a surprise Christmas gift with the MV for Anymore. Anymore is a b-side track on Somi’s first solo album XOXO. The song’s lyrics convey various emotions about a sentimental girl who is in love. Pink Sweats, the world-famous American R&B singer-songwriter, also participated in the writing and composing for Anymore.

Somi‘s MV received much attention from Kpop fans. Following DUMB DUMB and XOXO, Anymore MV wraps up a successful year of the female soloist from The Black Label.

On social media, netizens are having divided thoughts on Jeon Somi‘s new MV. Notably, many BLACKPINK’s fans accuse Somi of copying her senior Rosé. The first similarity is in the posters. Both female idols have blonde hair with similar styling. The posters’ font designs and layouts are also strikingly similar.

With the scene of a lovesick girl leaning against the wall in the Anymore MV, Somi also reminds viewers of the BLACKPINK member, which made Rosé’s fans angry. This isn’t the first time Somi has gotten into trouble for imitating her senior.

Previously, during the DUMB DUMB era, Somi sparked a heated debate because she appeared too similar to BLACKPINK‘s main vocalist. Somi‘s highteen concept, hairstyle, and outfit are all similar to Rosé‘s On The Ground concept. Netizens even sarcastically said that Somi must be very determined to turn herself into a copy of Rosé.

Fans, on the other hand, rebuffed criticism from Rosé‘s fans. They believe that the scene of a girl sitting alone in a room is a common theme in many other Kpop music videos. Therefore, it cannot be said that Somi is trying to imitate Rosé. Regarding the similarity between the layout and design of the poster, the fault belongs to The Black Label. Fans believe that the company is entirely responsible for these similar details and hope that The Black Label‘s creative team will have more new ideas for the next comeback.

  • Watch the entire MV and lyrics of Anymore, you will see that Somi has nothing like Rosé.  Two completely different styles.
  • Rosé fans always make a big fuss everytime Somi makes her comebacks. 
  • No matter what you say, there’s no denying that Somi is turning herself into a copy of Rosé.
  • It’s like Somi is obsessed with Rosé.
  • Why is it that every time Somi gets into a copycat controversy, it’s always Rosé?
