SM’s Red Velvet Runs Into Name Trouble With Indie Band Red Velvet, Agreement Reached

Red Velvet, SM’s first new girl group in two years, has hit controversy ahead of the release of their debut single. It turns out Red Velvet is also the name of an indie band based around Hongik University that started performing in 2013.

Ha Hee Soo, a member of the indie band Red Velvet, posted online, “We released a single last year, performed at Hongik University, and we’re currently preparing for our next album. It took us off guard, hearing that there would be a girl group debuting with the same name.” Ha Hee Soo said, “It’s not like SM wouldn’t have searched the name before they decided to use it,” expressing the band’s disappointment. The band’s digital single “The Day After You Left” was listed on the various music sites.

The band member said, “We’re a powerless indie band. If SM’s girl group debuts, our activities and promotions are going to get difficult. We’ve just now gotten our footing, and we have a lot of affection for our name, too. Please help us keep the name Red Velvet.

Upon confirmation by Dispatch, the band has not gotten their name trademarked, and thus is unable to claim rights to the name. According to patent attorney Hwang Sung Pil, “Even if they are able to apply, if they didn’t do it first, they have no legal claim to the name.

The only thing left is an ethical perspective. A music industry official said, “SM is a major music agency. They won’t fight with an indie band. This kind of thing happens a lot in the music industry, and [in the past] even if there wasn’t any legal claim, they took an ethical stance and the issues were resolved smoothly.

Previously, in 2009, 2NE1 ran into the same issue. At the time, the group was supposed to debut as “21.” However, there was a solo artist who debuted in 2005, also called 21 (To Anyone). YG immediately apologized to the artist, and changed the group name. Yang Hyun Suk said, “We kept the name, but changed the way it was written to ‘2NE1.’ We’ll do our best to keep our activities and promotions from overlapping,” effectively resolving the issue.

JYPE Responds to HyunA and BTOB Hyunsik’s Homage to g.o.d


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.”

Beenzino for Freshness Mag! American Media Debut?


Long known for its incessant depictions of improbable love affair and saccharine lifestyle, fissures are appearing in the once insular world of Korean popular music/culture (commonly categorized as K-Pop). One of the few that dares to deviate from the norm is Lim Sungbin, a star in the small but increasingly popular music genre of K-Hip Hop. Best known by his stage name Beenzino, Lim spent much of his childhood in New Zealand, where he picked up his love of American hip-hop. By the time he moved back to Korea for middle school, Lim was already developing his hip hop persona, one that subsequently became Beenzino, a name Lim derived from his admiration of American rapper Benzino.
