Copied Or Inspired: BTS Jungkook's Iconic Scene From Seven Was Ripped Off By Taeyeon?

SM Entertainment artists can't seem to catch a break. Not only new groups like aespa and RIIZE, but a legendary idol like Taeyeon has also been hit with plagiarism claims. Don't know what we're talking about? Well, when Girls' Generation leader dropped a highlight clip for her song Melt Away, she was immediately accused of copying Jungkook's iconic restaurant scene from the Seven music video. Why so? It's because Taeyeon was sitting at a table in a fine dining restaurant with a man.
While one can't deny that both the clips revolve around love and quarrels in a restaurant, the approach and execution differ greatly. Firstly, just take a look at the concepts. While the restaurant scene in Seven's music video illustrates Han So-hee's dissatisfaction with Jungkook, Taeyeon's short clip is about breaking up with a man and freeing herself from a toxic relationship. Unlike Jungkook and Han So-hee, who are just having a lovers quarrel in the restaurant, Taeyeon is very much over her relationship in the music video.
Furthermore, the relationships between both couples differ vastly. Han So-hee is seen yelling at Jungkook, who appears to be responding in a fairly casual manner. From their behaviour and conversation, it is easy to understand that they both have an equal control in their relationship. Meanwhile, only Taeyeon's boyfriend can be seen talking in Melt Away's clip, while the K-pop star simply smiles. It is evident that Taeyeon did not have a voice in her relationship.
However, the concept was not the main focus of this issue. It largely seemed to be the lighting and set design, as both the scenes looked visually quite similar. However, if you take a closer look, you'll realize that there are many prominent differences.
Starting with the lighting. The restaurant scene in Seven has predominant yellow lighting which gives it a warm hue, whereas Melt Away's clip is dominated by a white light with bits of yellow lighting. It isn't uncommon to find yellow lights in a restaurant as they create a cozy atmosphere. So, why would they not replicate it on a set? How would you feel if you entered a restaurant with red lights? You'd think you’re entering Five Nights at Freddy’s. Who would want that aesthetic in their 'romantic' music video.
Now, coming to the set design. Nobody owns the right to have a white cloth on a fancy table or two glasses of wine in their content. By that logic, Jungkook has plagiarized One Direction's Night Changes, Suho's Dinner and more. However, it's the details that make these scenes different. That's the same case with Melt Away and Seven. Taeyeon's music video is heavily influenced by the colour yellow, while Jungkook's is dominated by red and brown.
Furthermore, the settings are also completely different. While Jungkook and Han So-hee are surrounded by people and plenty of space, Taeyeon's highlight clip feels a bit more closed off, probably to reflect how suffocating her relationship was.
This is simply the case of 'Guy who has only seen The Boss Baby.' Fans are inclined to gravitate in the direction of what they know. When you only have one reference point, the next time you see something, you will believe it was inspired by it. That's the reason many accused Taeyeon of copying the Bts star, when she was merely referencing her earlier eras. Her team was definitely inspired by her older works rather than Jungkook’s Seven music video.
