It has been found that a South American male group has plagiarized one of TVXQ’s songs, and this news is expected to cause an uproar.
Venezuelan group Zivao’s song ‘Dentro de tu piel’ is stirring up a controversy online as it sounds extremely similar to TVXQ’s ‘Mirotic’. The melody of the song resembles that of ‘Mirotic’ so much that it sounds as if the group merely switched the lyrics, sparking arguments back and forth between TVXQ fans.
Netizens have been criticizing Zivao, stating that the group has also plagiarized the album covers of 2PM and Big Bang. Zivao can actually be seen posing similarly to the members of 2PM in their photos. Regarding this, a representative of TVXQ’s agency stated, “We’ve never heard of a group called Zivao before. We will look into the problem.”
With the Hallyu Wave spreading further out and into the global community, there has been an increasing number of cases where people are plagiarizing K-Pop or using it for commercial purposes with no permission to do so. A representative of the K-Pop industry stated, “It shows just how much the influence of K-Pop has grown. However, the singers and agencies incur great damages from such acts. It is pertinent that a solution is created to stop illegal plagiarism.”
