FT Island gets involved in plagiarism issues with song from their new album.
According to a particular discussion forum, there were criticisms saying that “Bing Bing Bing“, song from FT Island’s 3rd album, resembles English band, McFly’s “Five Colours In Her Hair“.
Some netizens uploaded both songs on blogs and communities, and pointed out that the interlude for both songs are similar.
However, based on the tele-conversation between FT Island’s management and one of the reporters, they revealed that they “didn’t know about it” and that they will investigate the issue and give their stand.
According to the Korea Music Copyright Association, the composer for “Bing Bing Bing” was registered under the name “HOONY”, and without any statements of samplings or remakes of the song.
Apparently a fan (or maybe more) filed a complaint to Mcfly's management (from what I read) and they're probably screwed if it turns out to be plagarized..
