[PANN] 170302 Idol plagiarism issue that's currently a hot topic


BTS stage VCR plagiarism controversy
turns out to be...!

What was the root?

VIP (Big Bang's fandom) started this issue.
Please follow the rough timeline on the right


This is the Gaon chart's VCR played before BTS's Save ME performance - 21:50






After BTS's stage, VIP (Big Bang's fandom) appealed that it was similar to the stage VCR directed by TOP at their concert - 22:00

I found the first photo online (BTS) and the second one was taken by me at the concert (TOP's solo stage) 
I thought our eldest oppa who joined the army was going to perform on stage... 


The situation overheated and in the end, BTS was falsely accused as "BTS plagiarized the stage".

Did you guys see the analogue VCR with No Signal that appeared during B T S's stage?
ㄴ yes. when I saw it I was like ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ aren't they crazy...?

Left is Big Bang and Right is BTS
ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ they can't perform their stage without copying~~~ ah~~~ so ugly~~

I heard that BTS came to watch Big Bang's recent concert. Some were like "Maybe they came to copy their stageㅋㅋ?" but I never thought this would be true ㅋㅋ This is insane... seriously

Similar messages weren't only spread on Twitter.
This began to spread on large entertainment community sites like DC Inside, Instiz, etc and became uncontrollable


22:45 VIPs claimed they should get an apology regarding plagiarism and they didn't only stop with trending hashtag on Twitter.


Feb 23rd - They began to spread rumors like "BTS came to watch Big Bang's concert to copy"

The reason why BTS look at Big Bang's photos and watch their stage videos:

Because they respect them (X)
Because they're a big gayo industry senior (X)
Because they're a fan (X)
To copy (O)
To act cool during interviews (O)
To pretend like they're a fan (O)
To gain more people who will shield them saying they're just following Big Bang because they're a fan (O)

And the internet press began to write articles 

B Bokbut (copy + paste)
T teolrineun (revealed)
S sonyeondan (boy scouts)

(T/N: "Boy scouts who get caught after copy+pasting")

BTS was accused of plagiarism and they were damaged greatly


I agree that they're the puppet idol ㅋ

#are_they_copying_them_naturally I hope they stop saying that they respect them (BB) and I hope I'll never see them at concerts pleaseㅠㅠㅠ Seeing them will make me unhappy

Does a singer do whatever they're told on stage? they're just a puppet

This is story of BTS Gaon Chart VCR plagiarism controversy


So did BTS really plagiarize the stage?

In conclusion, they didn't.

BTS's company & Gaon Chart's official feedback = Never

If so, please listen to the official feedback by Gaon Chart and BTS's company explaining why this is not a plagiarism!


Firstly, this is the explanation by BTS's company.

BTS's company = Singers do not direct their stages at the usual award ceremonies. This has nothing to do with us.

This is the explanation of Gaon

Gaon Chart official feedback:  Hello. This is secretariat of Gaon Chart Music Awards.

The following is our statement regarding the stage plagiarism of BTS at 6th Gaon Chart Music Awards.

We have confirmed with the producer of our company's award ceremony and the producing company replied regarding the VCR used on BTS's stage. The producing company had not monitored enough and it has been confirmed that they did not explain or demonstrate the content to BTS thoroughly before the actual stage.

We sincerely apologize to everyone who felt uncomfortable due to this issue.

During the rehearsal,

They did not demonstrate the content to BTS = BTS did not see the VCR

The effect used to create the stage VCR

This is widely used and it's a universal effect, making it hard to be called a cliche. No Signal is also very widely used and universal effect.

Therefore, this is not plagiarism.

(You can find the audio recordings of the conversation by typing the link https://goo.gl/ovXKIQ, https://goo.gl/vlYclh)

Additionally, we also asked a stage producer for their opinion.

Stage producer (Golden Disk Awards stage producer) = From the beginning, singers cannot coordinate the VCRs played during award ceremonies. 

Broadcast stations, the overall concept producer, and director conduct the award ceremony and there is no way a singer could get involved.

BTS did not watch the VCR during the rehearsal so even if any problem arises regarding the VCR, they do not have to be blamed.

(You can find the audio recording of the conversation by typing the link https://goo.gl/EMhf55)



Hm, so BTS did not get to watch the VCR and even Gaon says the VCR is not plagiarized?

Yes. In fact, BTS is falsely charged as they're pulled into this controversy.

Many people have pushed BTS due to this plagiarism as if they're the subject so what can we do about this?


But even the public don't show interest when they copy them ㅋㅋㅋ #BTS_should_be_the_one_apologzing_to_BigBang yeah, plagiarism boy scouts. just apologize. thanks 

those morons bribed them ㅋ
ah this is making me crazy

That's so similar but you still think that isn't plagiarism?
That's almost like copy+paste

yeah, this is plagiarism. absolutely...

if BTS knew about the VCR, this is plagiarism without a doubt

As a matter of fact, this is "Creation controversy"

They selected the wrong subject of the issue

And there are many people who spread false rumors, damaging BTS.



Didn't they even check their stage?
Are they incompetent? ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ they should admit they've copied them, apologize thousands of times. YG should be suing them at this timing
Because they did plagiarize the stage VCRㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ I'm f*cking frustrated

3. #do_you_think_there_would_be_spring_on_the_land_youve_stolen 
(hashtag which was made by combining BTS's title track title with the poem written during the days when Korea was under Japanese rule)



People who are busy trying to slander celebrities using inappropriate comparison. 

 imprudent malicious rumors and defamation towards the wrong target.

We're asking the readers how much we should tolerate their behavior.

Since YG isn't going to take any action, creating an issue and publicizing will spread this faster! Please search #BTS_should_be_theones_apologizing_to_BigBang on Naver! Right now the new is No. 6 on real time chart!

1. Don't you think you shouldn't be saying things you can't tell your own artist to other singers too? wow, I feel really bad for BTS and ARMY. The last gif made me tear up. I really hope them to apologize. Stay strong. +573 -17
ㄴ (nickname: third party) I think BTS did plagiarize? That stage was BTS's stage so they can't pretend like it has nothing to do with them... it was their stage in the end. BTS who were like puppets on their stage.. I'm really disappointed. +0 -37
ㄴ You're the final boss of frustration. Did you read the post with your nostrils? +17 -0
ㄴ f*ck you.  Are you really dyslexic? or did you just sh*t those words even after reading the post? +14 -0
ㄴLook at the standard of that comment; can't you real hangul? +9 -0
ㄴ this is why we're posting such post, for the ones who cover their eyes and earsㅋㅋ what did you do during Korean language class? You probably slept? +14 -0

2. I can really prove that I'm from another fandom and honestly I felt bad when these haters posted slandering posts all the time... Hashtag happens from time to time when fandoms fight but real time search ranking ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ anyway, I hope they'll apologize to ARMYs. +525 -11

ㄴthis is my prove. ARMY, stay strong! +47 -1

ㄴI love you, BBC. BBC is one of the fandoms we're grateful to because they often prove their fandoms when they post something about us.  ♡ +17 -0

3. wow... you guys really organized it well. I'm attaching this photo because I agree with this +504 -13
This is a defamation issue. BTS does not have to take responsibility about this so they're a victim and not the attacker. Awards ceremony VCR was created by the award ceremony and the singer clearly has nothing to do with this even if it's plagiarized or not. They have written a post explaining why the singer has nothing to do with this and the issue right now is that they defamed BTS severely. They just jumped on the hate bandwagon. And even if this was considered plagiarism making Big Bang the "victim", BTS doesn't have to take responsible for this controversy. Right now VIPs are the attackers in this defamation issue. We need to separate these two issues because defamation is not related to Gaon's issue. Let's imagine taking these two cases to the trial, who do you think would be charged? BTS or the fans who defamed them? BTS did not create the VCR so they can't be charged so obviously they're not guilty but that fandom will definitely be charged for defamation. This is the fact. +122 -0

4. Moderator, if you take this post down too. It's going to be the eighth post +199 -4

5. wow but they really made a great explanation ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ ARMYs were always slandered as the choding/elementary school fandom but this is not elementary student's work. This is like a work of an expert (shivers) +179 -3

6. I saw the other fandom reporting whenever ARMYs posted a clarification post. Honestly, you can't report them if you've got something called conscience +173 -3

7. What do you call when cows sing together? It's called group lawsuit +170 -3
(T/N: so (소) is cow in Korean.  Danchae (단체) is group. 송 (song) is song written in hangul. however, sosong (소송) is lawsuit. Danchae sosong (단체소송) is group lawsuit. Wordplay)

8. Okay, but I'm really curious VIPS. Why are you not apologizing to them officially? ARMYs wrote a really long post explaining when Gaon provided feedback and they even apologized about their immature fans attacking your Instagram accounts so why aren't VIPs apologizing? Are you trying to protect your pride? ㅎ +130 -5
ㄴ I agree with this +6 -0
ㄴ Ikr ㅋㅋㅋ why aren't they apologizing? +10 -0
ㄴ they have pride ㅋㅋ old fandom, senior singer, fandoms with many older fans. They think this makes them a mature fandom +10 -0
ㄴ This isn't about pride. They're just stubborn +4 -0

9. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋthis is hilarious +128 -6


Fans from other fandoms, please help us

Our VIPs are losing because there are too many ARMYs on here although their previous clarification posts made no sense. They always try to appeal "this is really unfair" and ARMYs always go with "I don't know" kind of attitude and this made us wake up. Fans from other fandoms, please try to think about this Big Bang BTS plagiarism controversy once again and show interest. This isn't the first time ARMYs been like this, right? Please help us
