Recently, HyunA’s “From Where and Until When” featuring BEAST’s Yang Yoseob has been under scrutiny, after many noticed that its lyrics were similar to g.o.d’s 2004 track, “The Reason Why Opposites Attract.” BTOB’s Hyunsik, who wrote the song, explained that the copied lyrics were just homage to their industry seniors, congratulating them on their comeback.
JYP Entertainment, home to Park Jin Young, who wrote and composed the original song for g.o.d, responded, “We’re thankful for the homage, but in the future, we’d like it if we were asked for permission beforehand.”
“From Where and Until When” is one of the songs from HyunA’s recently released solo album, “A Talk,” with the title track “Red.”
Article: JYP reps, "Thankful for the hommage in Hyuna's new song but we wish there would've been prior agreement..."
1. [+319, -18] Thinking logically ㅋㅋ Shouldn't they have told them? ㅋㅋ Especially considering JYP being the company she was in when under the Wonder Girls ㅋ have some respect. I don't know whose idea this was but the lyricist seems to be lacking some common sense.
2. [+283, -11] I bet they wouldn't have even mentioned the hommage if they were never caught
3. [+277, -11] It's only an hommage if there's a prior agreement to it... Try plagiarizing a word out of Oasis and calling it an hommage, you'll be stuck in debt for four generations.
4. [+41, -2] What a refreshing article. Taking the lyrics without prior permission and calling it an hommage only after being caught is an action that requires an apology.
5. [+36, -4] Are JYP fools... they always let these things go like this so people are quick to take a bite out of them all the time!!!
6. [+33, -2] It's only an hommage if there's prior discussion with the original producer... Please apologize respectfully.
7. [+29, -6] The song was written by some BtoB kid and Hyuna... You can see it when they introduce the track..;; Both of them deserve the hate. I guess even first time composers had no idea about stuff like this;;;
8. [+30, -3] I applaud a young kid for trying something like this for the first time but please keep a sense of respect for your future musical endeavours ㅋㅋㅋ The world is not nice enough to understand your hommage without permission ㅋㅋㅋ
9. [+27, -4] I hope all of Im Hyunshik's fans who claimed there was prior permission will now understand that it wasn't the case. Apologize for all of the mentions you sent the god members and Im Hyunshik and Hyuna need to apologize to JYP and god for using the lyrics without permission.
