Comparisons of Red Velvet & f(x)

Pann: The reasons why Red Velvet is not the second f(x)

1. [+101, -4] The company didn't differentiate both groups that much. They should've taken care of this. For example, I can't imagine SHINee singing Growl but I can imagine f(x) singing Ice Cream Cake

2. [+67, -5] Red Velvet is definitely different from f(x). F(x)'s music is dreamy and somewhat strange whereas Red Velvet is mostly cute

3. [+27, -0] SM releases their groups like brother-sister. TVXQ-CSJH, Super Junior-SNSD, SHINee-f(x). Those groups have similar numbers of members and similar auras. However, EXO is EXO-K-EXO-M. So I think Red Velvet will be a sister group of a future boy group. EXO is a unique case

4. [+20, -1] I think Red Velvet will keep promoting with two concepts. Red version of Automatic and Be Natural and Velvet version of Happiness and Ice Cream Cake

5. [+17, -0] F(x)'s concept is strong and Red Velvet is like a spring flower. They're girly and pink but also very feminine. I like both groups

6. [+17, -0] EXO is a twin group of EXO-K, EXO-K so the next SM boy group will be similar to Red Velvet
