Filipino singer and songwriter Ogie Alcasid's song plagiarized

“Parang anak ko na kinidnap, (It's like my child was kidnapped.)” Ogie Alcasid described how he felt when his song “Pangako” was plagiarized by a female Korean singer during the launch of his Ngayon At Kailanman CD: A Tribute to George Canseco CD at th Eastwood Mall Atrium.”He added, “Kuhang-kuha ang song ko. Pareho ang tono at arrangement, yun nga lang in Korean. (The tone and arrangement were the same. Only, it was in Korean.)”

Initially amazed when he first saw it in YouTube, he realized he had been robbed, “My honest feeling, I felt honored and flattered but I felt bad.” He confirmed that GMA7 had already taken action on the problem, “It’s an ongoing thing. Basta kung makakatanggap ako ng pera galing sa mga Koreano sasabihin ko agad sa inyo. (*If ever I get the money from the Koreans, I will tell you immediately.)”

On other hand, Ogie who is an big supporter of P-Noy, confirmed that he had never talked to the newly elected President since his oath-taking. But he said that he as its President and officers of the Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit is scheduled to be sworn in and have a dialogue with P-Noy to improve the Filipino music industry especially the OPM this August 13.

Audio for both Pangako composed by Ogie Alcasid and Manilyn Reyes, sung by Regine Velasquez and For Your Love by Jang Hye Jin.Collapse )

I learned of the Korean version about a year ago but surprised just now that Ogie didn't know about it?

when I heard it online, I just shrugged it off coz I was so used back then that whenever a Korean drama gets shown on local TV, their soundtrack gets a Filipino/English version. so I just thought it's the other way around, a Filipino song got adapted a Korean version :\

its not a bad thing to "borrow" songs...just give credit where credit is due! there are several billions of people in the planet, at least one tune/lyrics/rhythm/song will definitely be copied. its just easier to detect it now coz of YT and the internet.

I do hope, they get this cleared. So that at least SK people would know that even though many Pinoys adore KPOP, we are not a group that they should mess with in terms of artistry. haha :))

I'm not even filipino, but since I love Regine, I remember picking up on the similarity while watching Glass Slipper :) Thought it was an old issue...?
