E-TRIBE acknowledges similarities between Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” & SNSD’s “Be Happy”

A plagiarism controversy is brewing online between Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” and SNSD’s “Be Happy.”

Recently, a YouTube video comparing the two songs surfaced, leading to accusations of how Lady Gaga was plagiarizing SNSD. “Born This Way” is a track from Lady Gaga’s February release, while “Be Happy” is a 2010 track from SNSD’s second album.

The responses from netizens have been largely divided. Some wrote, “It sounds like it was plagiarized,” and “No wonder ‘Born This Way’ sounded so familiar.” Others retorted, “Lady Gaga composes her own songs. This was composed by her, and it’s not the same at all,” and “It might just be coincidence.”

E-TRIBE, the composer behind “Be Happy,” responded to the claims through Newsen on March 11th and stated, “Someone this morning told me that there were reports of Lady Gaga plagiarizing SNSD’s ‘Be Happy.’ I listened, and I do feel that there are similarities. The way the song flows and the arrangements are, honestly, the same. I am currently working to get in contact with Lady Gaga’s publishing label to find further information.”

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

H.O.T. member Moon Hee Jun momentarily lost his temper when talking about his ex-girlfriend.

KBS2TV’s “Happy Together” aired a special “Original Idol” episode on March 10th, which featured the guest appearances of Moon Hee Jun, Sechkies’s Eun Ji Won, Shinhwa’s Kim Dong Wan, and g.o.d’s Kim Tae Woo.

The topic came up when the boys began talking about scandals. Moon Hee Jun commented, “I didn’t have that many scandals but there was one big one”. Kim Tae Woo then teased, “She made a comeback not too long ago”.

At this point, Moon Hee Jun started getting worked up by explaining why he felt frustrated. “When I search my name, it comes up as a related search. I worked hard to bury it but everytime that other person talks about it, it becomes an issue again and becomes updated.”

He concluded by ’shouting’ at his ex, “Stop! Stop talking about it. Let me date!”, causing the studio to burst into laughter. Many felt that he was remnant of comedian Kim Gura with his outburst.

In the past, Moon Hee Jun was involved in a scandal with Baby Vox member Kan Mi Youn.

War games on Nightmare Range

NIGHTMARE RANGE, South Korea - This historic battleground south of the demilitarized zone between the two Koreas reminds a visitor of the kind of desolate, rough terrain over which soldiers fought for three years in the early 1950s and would have to fight again in the event of the dreaded Second Korean war.

It is not without good reason that United States forces, conducting annual exercises here and in nearby hills, have given the name "nightmare range" to a stretch of land that's formally named "Seung-jin" about 80 kilometers northeast of Seoul. The forbidding ridges and valleys are bare of trees, the landscape intermittently blasted by artillery, air strikes and small arms fire - all fun and games or at least "war games" that US and South

Korean officers and young enlisted troops clearly like as a break from boring routines back at their bases.

Jung Juri is dating your oppars

 

On March 9th, comedian Jung Juri guested on YTN’s “News and Issue- Issue and People” and spoke about her dating life. The hosts asked the star whether she would reveal her boyfriend if she got one. She replied, “I will date secretly.”

Jung continued, “It’s not that I am trying to be reserved, but my agency (TN Entertainment) has issued a ban on scandals.” Musing, she then added, ”My agency treats me as if I am Kim Tae Hee… I have to be cautious of scandals. The agency treats me like Kim Tae Hee and treats Jo Hae Ryun like actress Shim Eun Ha.”

After the laughter died down, Jung Juri revealed that her goal was to become an MC on a public TV network. “When viewers are surfing the channels, I want to be a person that they want to stop and love to watch on TV.”

We’re sure that Jung Juri won’t have problems reaching that goal, since like Kim Tae Hee, she’s one of Korea’s beloved stars.
