The problem is that the director and the producers must reply to these accusations.

[ +73 / -1] I’m a media major and this is no joke.. Please don’t take it lightly that the concept is very cliche and that people shouldn’t over react to similar music videos. But this is wrong. Music videos are story boarded before shooting. Videos are planned for a long time before. They could have planned for months or even years.
[ +69 / -2] Lets make this known to the public. But SEVENTEEN fans, you guys don’t need to apologize because this is none of your faults of SEVENTEEN members’ faults.
[ +67 / -2] Other websites are going crazy over this but it is so quiet here.. I think the director really needs to release an official statement
