Rest assure omona, Brown Eyed Girls to begin full scale comeback on July 29th



After making a splash with their pre-release track "Recipe", Brown Eyed Girls will be making a full comeback with an album release on July 29th.

Earlier today a Nega Network's CEO tweeted the date BEG fans have been waiting to see, tweeting, "BG's official album will go find you on July 29th".

With "Recipe" still doing very well on the charts, we suspect the ladies full album will definitely be much-anticipated. The group is said to have put in much effort since it's their first album in a long while.

Roy Kim Responds to Plagiarism Accusation

Singer-songwriter Roy Kim has denied accusations of plagiarism surrounding his hit debut single “BOM BOM BOM.”

2013071515574218919-615x410

Kim’s promoter CJ E&M released a statement on Tuesday, saying that the young singer did not copy Acoustic Rain’s song “Love is Canon,” responding to fast-growing and heated controversy over the tune released in April.

The statement explained that Kim composed the song with Bae Kyeong-young, while Jung Ji-chan and Kim Sung-yoon co-arranged the song, and that all four had never heard of Acoustic Rain and “Love is Canon” prior to creating the song.

It also said that “BOM BOM BOM” was registered with the Korea Music Copyright Association on April 22 while the ukulele version of “Love is Canon,” the tune being compared to Kim’s tune, was registered on May 15, effectively proving that the two songs are unrelated.

Regarding claims that the beginning to “BOM BOM BOM” is similar to the original version of “Love is Canon,” CJ said it had experts deem there was no plagiarism involved.

This is not the first time the tune has been accused of being a copy of “Love is Canon.” It was first stirred up in May but was overshadowed by claims that Kim plagiarized A-Ha’s “Take On Me” and Korean veteran singer Kim Kwang-seok’s “Where the Wind Blows” (translated title).

Then during his concert in Seoul last Saturday, Roy Kim sang a new self-written song and stated that it was his original tune, addressing previous accusations that it was similar to a song by band Busker Busker member Jang Bum-joon. (details here)

This brought light to the topic of Kim and plagiarism and led to the reigniting of the controversy over “BOM BOM BOM.”

Now another one of his tunes are also being accused of plagiarism: a video on YouTube (watch here) compares Kim’s tune “Passing By” to Singaporean singer Corrinne May’s tune “Beautiful Seed.”

Kim, 20, gained much popularity as the winner of Mnet’s popular talent show “Superstar K 4,” and placed both “Bom Bom Bom” and “Love Love Love,” the latter from his studio release, at top of music charts.

Kang Seung Yoon rises to the top of music charts + support messages from Jongsuk and Park²!

gallery_ksy_ds_rain_03

KANG SEUNG-YOON’s debut single ‘IT RAINS’ knocked down all Korean music charts.

‘IT RAINS’, which was unveiled on July 16, has now (7 a.m. July 17) ranked the top on 9 real-time music charts including Olleh, Daum, Mellon, Naver, Cyworld Music, Soribada, Bugs, Mnet and Monkey 3.

Although he already garnered much popularity after appearing on Superstar K season 2, considering the fact that the promotion for his album was insufficient, such achievement comes as even greater news for the rookie artist.

KANG SEUNG-YOON, since performing 3 years ago on Superstar K season 2, has matured more musically and his sentiments have added more layers now. In his song, he expresses the pain of loss by singing, “rains to my heart/and it rains so cold.”
