Is f(x) Just Female SHINee?

This is something that is always on my mind when there is an f(x) comeback.

I love these groups equally so this isn't saying anything negative about them! It's simply remarking on how SM makes them have very similar styles :)
See for yourself:

4 Walls vs View

f(x)'s comeback that came out recently reminds me a lot of SHINee's View. It's the same color scheme, angles, and general sound in the verses.

Rum Pum Pum vs Juliette

This is just as SM thing to use the same set constantly, but the whole structure of these songs are the same.

Electric Shock vs Lucifer

Both of their strengths is their ability to have high energy songs with insane choreography and I think these are two songs that show it!

Either way I love them both, but do you see the similarity?!

I call them that allllll the time but I love them both so much so I like that fact haha
GG - Super Junior Female Ver SHINee - DBSK 2nd ver ( not sure ) f(x) - Hybrid between GG and SHINee EXO - Suju 2nd ver Red Velvet - GG 2nd ver or f(x) 2nd her. SM has a way to keep their era going, new one will replace the old to keep this golden era.
F(X) is Shinee's sister group, but as far as the album goes they were experimenting with a new sound and decided to try Electronica. I think it fits them well personally and 4 walls was the only SHINeesque song (based on the odd and marriednto the music repackage) I heard.
I associate both of them with trying music that sounds different from other Kpop bands. They are different sounding from one another to me.
