“Couldn’t Make The Plagiarism More Obvious.” — Netizens Debate MAMAMOO+’s Album Design And Concept

What do you think?

Netizens recently found MAMAMOO+‘s album design and concepts similar to another girl group’s.


Earlier this month, it was announced that MAMAMOO subunit MAMAOO+, made up of Solar and Moonbyul, would make their comeback in August.  The pair ramped up excitement for the comeback with teaser images for their pre-release track, “Save Me,” and then with the song’s drop.

The concept imagery for the album, titled Two Rabbits, features two small rabbits meant to represent the members, featuring a color scheme of shades of blue, yellow, and white.

The subunit’s album designs also feature similar images.


On July 21, the tracklist for the album was released and featured a cereal box design with the two rabbits seated in the center. Though the design is adorable, some couldn’t help but notice that the design’s feeling was similar to NewJeans‘ NewJeans album.

NewJeans features a bunny in most of their concept imagery and refer to their fans as “bunnies.” The group’s lightstick design is also modeled after a bunny.

Fans of the group brought up the design similarities following the track list release, with some saying the comparisons were inevitable.

On the other hand, others pointed out that MAMAMOO+ likely planned the concept well in advance and referenced Two Bunnies multiple times over the last year.

What do you think of the situation?
