1. [+435, -341] They're the uniforms of Southwestern Airline and Pan American Airline but they've become standardized now to the point of being the uniform of every airline stewardess. This can't be a controversy because then you'd have to say that people wearing military suits are plagiarizing soldiers...
2. [+398, -319] The poster concept is used by almost every airline. By this logic, all of the airlines should be sued for plagiarism. Why wasn't this an issue during "Genie" when they wore marine outfits?
3. [+371, -305] If this is considered plagiarism, then what about their police and military looks? The concept of SNSD's 2nd Japanese album is the hippie culture of the 60s and 70s. They're parodying the Southwest stewardess outfits from the 60s, as they were the first to wear mini skirts.
4. [+115, -79] I clicked in thinking how similar could it be and then got surprised.. hul..
5. [+96, -74] Do you guys not know the difference between parody and plagiarism? They were obviously trying to take a similar style to the photos.
