This happens every time they make a comeback and I feel so-so... they are kids that could've done so well... Even when they debuted, they were compared to SNSD and it wasn't only once or twice..ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Every time they had a comeback, they always have plagiarism controversy. If it was only once or twice, I would've let it pass but now Gfriend's image is becoming bad
It's more like a business ethics issue rather than plagiarism. I think it that there needs to be some courtesy between artists. I seriously think that without talking to the creators in advance before using something is a lack of manners. If a work of art I did got copied, I would be even more sensitive about it. I don't know about them but I bet that the victims wouldn't feel good about it. People who do arts will understand, everything you do is an expression of you and has a meaning behind it. So the creation of a work is very hard to do. Seriously, even when I write a post, I have to review it and edit it a couple of times. But if we're talking about a big piece of work like a composition of a song or the highlight part of a choreography, do you know how sh*tty you feel if someone just copies something you created? Something you worked so hard on just gets copied without asking permission. I'm losing hope in humanity. I really hope that there are stricter rules regarding plagiarism. I'm not wishing that Woollim brings this to courts but Gfriend's company and the person who made this choreography should apologize.
