Crayon Pop Once Again Accused of Plagiarism

Crayon Pop Once Again Accused of Plagiarism

About a week or so ago, Crayon Pop was at the center of a plagiarism accusation by a Japanese company for a concept that they released for the holidays. This week, the group is yet again faced with another plagiarism suspicion. Their Christmas song entitled “Lonely Christmas (Kkuriseumaseu)” is under speculation for being ripped off of an anime called ‘Lupin III’. With many of these accusations being flung at the group in less than three months, it’s a little hard to say whether the group or the company won’t be forever stained with the image of copycats and remakers. The net users are certainly speaking their minds about the issue, saying that there must be something wrong at this point if it is happening over and over again. Some are even suspecting the group of a little something called noise marketing: “Seems like this trash agency is trying to noise market by gaining attention through controversies like this even if it gets them hate” Others have stated: “Copy Momoiro for the outfits, copy a Japanese anime for the song, name the song ‘Kurisumasu’, a Japanese pronunciation of Christmas. Talk about a 21st century pro-Japanese gorup.” and “So is there concept

Recently in Inkigayo, 2NE1 performed their comeback stage after the 2013 MAMA Awards with “Missing You.” “We’ve come back with ‘Missing You!’” says Bom during the MC segment before the Inkigayo comeback. “You’ve missed 2NE1 right? We’ve missed you,” adds Dara. Check their heartbreaking performance of “Missing You.” On the same day at Inkigayo, Taeyang won the mutizen award for his efforts with “Ringa Linga.” “Please give me more love. Please give 2NE1 more love too,” says Taeyang during the winning speech according to YGLadies. But despite the camaraderie amongst the YG Family, this points out the fact that Taeyang and 2NE1 will be promoting at the same time on various music shows, and thus competing for the same spots. In addition, T.O.P. is also currently ranking on various music charts with his comeback single, “Doom Dada.” A prime example of several YG artists competing against each other can be seen during Inkigayo, where T.O.P. and Taeyang battled it out for the award that ultimately went to Taeyang.

Kim Heechul

On the 21st episode of the JTBC show, Kim Heechul discussed what he thought about women’s body types. Now, this is a sensitive subject to many women, but he kept within the body types that men favored instead of pointing out body types that did not fit his standards, a wise choice. Through the conversations, Kim Heechul revealed that it is bodies like Kim Bora ‘s of SISTAR that really are more favorable in the eyes of men. Viewers took to the internet to discuss their thoughts on this. Commentators thought to compare Bora’s body to some of the other stars in the media with a similar build. Sooyoung of Girls’ Generation was included in the comparison, “I’ve rarely ever seen women prefer bodies like Sooyoung’s. People who go for thin body types usually prefer Kim Min Hee or Gong Hyo Jin, stars with good proportions. Sooyoung’s just thin with no tone or definition and her proportions aren’t that great either.” “Women totally hate Sooyoung’s body type. Like the best reply says, she’s thin in a way that it makes her look poor. Her head looks proportionally big and she has no curves from the waist down. Someone like After
