Teddy denies 'Heroine' was plagiarized, 100% his own creation



Article: [Official statement] Teddy reps, "Sunmi's 'Heroine' was NOT plagiarized... 100% his own creation"

Source: Sports Donga via Naver

1. [+5,712, -156] ????

2. [+5,634, -282] It's too similar to say that.. the overall way the song is structured. The EDM part of 'Gashina' is similar to 'Lean On' too... this is embarrassing for Korea.

3. [+5,159, -177] So shameless of PlagiarismTeddy

4. [+4,877, -185] ????????? I know nothing about music and even I can tell that it's similar

5. [+4,195, -162] All he did was add Korean lyrics to it... he really screwed Sunmi over

6. [+1,689, -41] This ba$tard has no shame ㅋㅋㅋㅋ by the way, he's not even Korean so he hasn't served in the army ever

7. [+1,509, -43] Shouldn't he at least give reasons why it's not plagiarism? It's hard for the rest of us to understand when all he's saying is no

8. [+1,430, -31] So just because he's saying it's not means that it's not? Shouldn't he be explaining how it's not??? He really sees the public as trash

1. [+600, -71] Sunmi, please don't sing live!! I was so surprised... shes so extremely bad at singing. I get that she's more about the performance but come on ㅠㅠ

2. [+490, -28] Does he think he can just brush this off because he doubts an international singer will file a lawsuit? This just makes Sunmi get hate too. Everything is similar, not just the song. If she has any shame, she should quit while she can.

3. [+415, -74] Still can't forget Sunmi's shocking and horrifying live singing on 'Happy Together' yesterday. She also lip synced her comeback stage on 'M! Countdown'.

4. [+112, -60] What does this make Sunmi then? I don't want it to be plagiarism either but he needs to give more reasons than just saying it's not. How can Sunmi halt promos if the composer is saying he didn't plagiarize?

5. [+81, -23] Wow, this ba$tard's an idiot ㅋㅋ

6. [+57, -8] ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I expected him to weasel his way out of this one since he's YG and all

7. [+51, -5] He really thinks he can cover the sky with his bare palm...

8. [+35, -3] That basically means Sunmi has to continue promos while getting all this hate ㅋㅋ

Article: Sunmi's 'Heroine' plagiarism controversy, YG deletes Teddy's production video on composing music

Source: Segye Ilbo via Nate

1. [+974, -9] So Yang Hyun Suk is really just a thug at this point, right? Why does he keep acting like this?

2. [+963, -8] This is why Yoo Byung Jae said there are a lot of people in YG who should be in jail

3. [+705, -8] Deleting the video is basically a silent way of admitting that he plagiarized

4. [+39, -2] All because of him, Sunmi is getting a sh*t ton of hate ㅡㅡ YG always keeps their mouth shut about issues like this

5. [+36, -1] Just too much bad news surrounding this agency

Article: 'Music Bank' Sunmi, no mention of 'Heroine' plagiarism scandal "I love my fans"

Source: Money Week via Nate

1. [+553, -46] At least when Lee Hyori had her plagiarism controversy, she apologized and halted her promos

2. [+517, -111] Her singing yesterday on 'Happy Together' was seriously bad ㅋㅋㅋ her face looks weird with all the plastic surgery now too. She was never talented to begin with, always just a performance centered kid. I knew she would never last long but I never thought her career would end over plagiarism... There's just a limit to how far performance singers can go since they have no innate talent of their own.

3. [+58, -2] The composer is the first person responsible for this but Sunmi is responsible as well. Sunmi wrote the lyrics and it's not just the song that's under accusation but the MV, choreography, and concept too. If she continues promos, it's only going to hurt her in the end. People will call her shameless.

4. [+46, -5] Why are people saying Sunmi's not responsible? If she was never caught, people would praise her for picking a good song and everything. The opposite of that means she should be responsible when the song doesn't do well either.

5. [+33, -1] For how pretty she is, she's got quite of a stubborn head on her shoulders~~ but then you have to wonder how many sly things she's seen in her career for how young she debuted. She probably had to be stubborn to last this long.

6. [+27, -1] She needs to put out a statement before sentiment turns worse against her. Halting promos is the best way to go since she has no idea how much worse this is going to get.

7. [+24, -5] Just consider this a little break and apologize before halting promos

8. [+22, -2] Wow, how can she be so shameless?

Will Teddy speak up about Sunmi's 'Heroine' plagiarism scandal?

1. [+4,084, -152] Teddy-ya, have you no shame?

2. [+3,158, -60] This is an issue since it happens all the time... not like it's just once or twice

3. [+2,558, -67] The god of copying

4. [+2,571, -162] Every single thing this ba$tard puts out is plagiarized and he always brushes it under the rug. Get all of YG tested for drugs!! Choi Soon Shil was totally supporting this agency!!

5. [+1,129, -53] Teddy-ya, did Sunmi do something to piss you off? Obviously she hired you and paid you to do a job, why would you screw her over like this? Please just disappear from the industry already, why are you making Sunmi get all this hate?

6. [+1,006, -40] He needs to clarify all the plagiarized songs from 2NE1 and Black Pink too... he's such an embarrassment to Korean pop

7. [+999, -35] YG needs to revamp their entire way of thinking. Let's see how long their arrogance will last...

8. [+723, -15] Teddy again?

Article: Teddy under suspicion of plagiarizing Sunmi's 'Heroine'... will he release a statement?

Source: Seoul Econ via Nate

1. [+237, -11] Copy enough times and it becomes a habit...

2. [+210, -5] It's not just the melody though, it's everything from the dance to the concept to the music video to the outfit... I don't think he can ignore it this time

3. [+184, -10] As if he'll say anything... ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+15, -0] YG never clarifies anything that isn't in their favor ㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+11, -0] Teddy is getting so bad with these plagiarism cases

6. [+9, -0] Anyone who's in the know is probably well aware of how trash Teddy is as a producer ㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+5, -0] It's just identical... there's no excuse that can explain it

8. [+5, -0] Yang Hyun Suk is in control of Teddy when he's producing for YG but when he's producing for outside artists, there's no one to control him so he crosses lines he shouldn't be crossing

FNC denies former FNC employee's claims that Jung Yonghwa applied to graduate school to postpone army service



Article: "Jung Yonghwa went to grad school to delay army enlistment... had another student attend for him"

Source: No Cut News via Nate

A person claiming to be a former FNC employee came forward with his notes on applying for his army postponement and being approved twice on the basis that he's in graduate school. He also provided text updates from the Military Manpower Administration approving such postponements. In an interview with CBS No Cut News, he said, "He went to graduate school as a tactic to postpone his service. He did not actually apply to the school or manage his classes himself. There are other celebrities who use this tactic. They will often have a specific employee to login to their online classes for attendance."

FNC responded, "Those are unfounded rumors. We do have staff to mange their classes but our celebrities are given tablets to attend their online lectures themselves. This is how all artists who attend online schools do it."

-

1. [+704, -7] At this point, he's set to be exiled from the industry

2. [+643, -10] So this whole thing was to get out of the army, I'm so disappointed in him

3. [+562, -7] Farewell~

4. [+37, -0] He's trash ㅋㅋㅋㅋ army, education, stocks

5. [+31, -0] I always wondered why he was in graduate school when he doesn't even look like the studious type. So it was for the army all along.

6. [+25, -0] Insider trading, scamming his way into a doctorate, evading the army, having someone take attendance for him... farewell, we won't be seeing you on TV anymore

7. [+24, -0] He needs to be sent to jail before the army!!!

8. [+20, -1] He's not the only one... all those stars who delay and delay until their thirties are using tactics like these

9. [+19, -1] It's not only him... so many idols are enrolled in cyber universities. Why do you think they have their names enrolled in classes they don't even attend?

10. [+16, -0] Nowadays, serving in the army is better for maintaining your popularity.

Yang Hyun Suk 'reveals' his son on Instagram



Article: "GD over dad" Yang Hyun Suk reveals son for the first time, baby fashionista

Source: Newsen via Nate

"Yang Seung Hyun. YGjunior. First reveal. GD over dad. Not sure of his debut potential in 15 years."

-

1. [+218, -11] How is this a reveal if all his face is hidden? No one was curious about his kid anyway

2. [+207, -7] Yang Hyun Suk is more cringe than you'd think....

3. [+192, -5] YGjunior. First reveal. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Yang Hyun Suk really loves himself

4. [+17, -3] I don't think anyone was curious

5. [+12, -1] Yang Hyun Suk seems to think of himself as bigger than he is ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+9, -0] He better knock it off if he wants to keep his kid out of hate's way because his own image is totally unlikeable

7. [+6, -0] YG is really bad at baiting fans while SM is good at it. SM will wait 3-4 years after debut to start giving their groups weird songs and start lengthening their hiatus so that the fans transition over to their new rookie groups. That way they're not impacted when their original groups retire. YG, however, has been hanging on to Big Bang and seems to have no intention of passing their fans on to their new rookies. Sure you can argue that the groups have different charms or whatever but idols are 80% about marketing. YG is screwed once Big Bang leaves.

8. [+5, -0] I bet he'll debut his own kid later
