Korean fashion designer Yoon Choon Ho has accused actress Yoon Eun Hye of copying one of his designs.
Yoon Eun Hye is currently appearing as one of the contestants on China’s fashion design survival program “Goddess’ Fashion” and was ranked number one in a recent evaluation. The design that she won with is a completely white coat with wing-like laces attached at the sleeves.
After this episode aired, designer Yoon Choon Ho claimed that Yoon Eun Hye copied off of his previous design, saying, “I heard my clothes appeared on a Chinese program… I thought it was just a sponsored piece, but it was supposedly made by another woman.”
He continued, “I can see that it’s a bit different [from mine], and people might say it’s just a coincidence. But I am offended. I feel that way and so do my co-workers. Fashion designers out there, don’t you think we would know our own clothing?” expressing his firm belief that Yoon Eun Hye had plagiarized.
He wrote once more, “I also found out that the actress and her stylist actually picked up a sponsored outfit from our company just a few days ago, so I’m pretty certain that I’m right. It’s giving me chills. I can’t believe someone would [plagiarize] one of my collections [...] so easily and so confidently… I’m at a loss.”
Designer Yoon then uploaded pictures comparing Yoon Eun Hye’s dress to his to let the public decide who is right.
1. [+15,824, -185] I don't know much about these things but she totally did after seeing the pictures ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
2. [+11,860, -156] Ehh, looks the same..
3. [+11,468, -160] Doesn't even look like plagiarism, just looks like she straight up took his work and put it on
4. [+8,615, -120] Undeniable ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
5. [+2,078, -21] She didn't even plagiarize something from 2-3 years ago but a collection from this year... she's ballsy
6. [+2,076, -28] So she was given that clothes as a sponsorship and then she plagiarized it? Hul
7. [+1,933, -28] Why would you go all the way to China to plagiarize and scam people..
8. [+1,922, -29] She can't deny this. The other design has already been on the runway and was given to her as a sponsorship. She couldn't possibly say that she had no idea that design existed.
1. [+439, -17] Who taught you such naughty things..
2. [+357, -8] So similar, why'd you do it~ ㅠ
3. [+327, -9] She copied it but made it look worse tsk tsk
4. [+231, -6] ctrl + c, ctrl + v
5. [+85, -9] The original design is a lot more classy looking, a copy proves that it can never live up to the original in the end
