[enter-talk] BTS PLAGIARISM CLARIFICATION

t/n: you probably all noticed that we didn't translate yesterday ^^; sorry for that, some of you might know, all the trending PANN posts were about BTS's plagiarism accusations. So we didn't want to translate all those posts who were basically saying the same thing, anyways here's the clarification post that wraps everything up! It's kinda lengthy so we'll only get to the major points

Hi, we're armies from BTS' fanclub.

This post will mention EXO/Shinee/Bigbang but we don't want you guys to misunderstand we have nothing against them.

1. First of all people said mentioned several references to Bigbang. 

Everything Bangtan wore in this comeback were all clothes from the same collection. Their clothes seemed to have overlapped with Bigbang, but it was clearly not done with an intention to plagiarize.
Since it's probably sponsored it's possible that they wore similar clothing.



^saying that the accusation of Suga copying Bigbang were obsolete since Suga's teaser came out before Bigbang's stage

another accusation was that Jimin wore a fur coat with tattoos over his body and it became another controversy. But this was supposed to be a spoiler for HYYH.You could read "never mind" on one side of his body and "HYYH" on the other side which are both spoilers. 

furthermore, there are other artists who wore the same fur coat with tattoos on

the other one referring to Bigbang was Sober's concept

Bigbang Sober
they used the 2 pictures to accuse them of plagiarizing
but they only used this scene to run in, the actual dance MV was in another setting
Apink remember concept

Gfriend me gusta tu concept

Shinee Lucky star concept

another point is that Bangtan shot their photos on April of last year while Bigbang came out with their MV on August



because HYYH is a series, of course they had to stick to the same concept so that's why they ended up being similar the second time onward

Sukajans/Japanese bomber jackets
Bigbang fans were claiming that they copied Sukajans/Japanese bombers during Baebae

once again, they wore it first during their Run promotion and since Sukajans are not only famous among non-celebs but also celebs it's trendy to wear them. 

hair color plagiarism

some VIPs also accused Bangtan of copying GD's orange hair. V already had orange hair near his debut days and he wanted to dye it orange again this year. Jimin had this hair color before too, and we can't help it if their hair color all end up similar looking

here's V 2 years ago with orange hair

GD and Rapmon

people were saying that Rapmon was copying GD's style but since I don't know who wore it first, I can't argue with this. But once again, those glasses are really famous among celebrities so overlap is possible

2. Shinee (t/n: I'll paraphrase this part since we already covered it in the last post)
I'm responding to those people saying that BTS copied Shinee's MV but this concept was already used by several other people before






3. Lastly EXO
there were also people saying that they plagiarized from EXO's MV


regarding their uniforms similarities, their Boy in Luv promotions, they had 15 different costumes. They wanted to wear uniforms and since uniform designs are limited, 1 or 2 ended up similar to EXO's. Once again, they've been preparing this promotion ever since their debut to create a trilogy so it's impossible that they wanted to plagiarize on EXO. Ever since their debut trilogy they were planing to end up in a school and confess to the girl they liked in Boy in Luv.

this photo was becoming a controversy, but those pictures were taken as a celebration for BTS' 2 years


other problematic photos


on top, you can see that both used their names on their backs as costume designs. But BTS used this concept ever since they debuted.

Logo 

BTS' original logo
this is EXO' original logo
EXO suddenly changed their logo for their Wolf promotion so it's impossible that BTS were the ones copying them.

Finally EXO fans claimed that BTS copying their "maze" concept for their Prologue:Young forever. Once again, a lot of artists have used this concept already

I've been following this event ever since afternoon and even as a non-fan I pity this group so muchㅋㅋ.. Bangtan never did anything wrong themselves and people find faults in them everyday, they gather a few people who acknowledge their claims and blame them, they're so pitiful.. When Armies accused Seventeen on plagiarism, they were so careful not to hurt seventeen and said that they knew seventeen weren't at fault. I hope this issue gets solved
