Sony Slams YG Entertainment for Plagiarism Issues!

G-Dragon's Heartbreaker!

Looks like the Heartbreaker is about to get his heart broken… Sony has responded to accusations of G-Dragon‘s alleged plagiarism and it isn’t pretty!

As many of you recall, back in August, Sony noted similarities between G-Dragon’s “Heartbreaker” & “Right Round” (Flo Rida) as well as “Butterfly” & “She’s Electric” (Oasis). On the 21st, Sony reported their observations to the original producers of each song then waited for their response.

Furthermore, it isn’t just G-Dragon who’s under the heat – according to Freechal, “I Don’t Care” by 2NE1 (supposedly akin to Lionel Richie‘s “Just Go”) & Big Bang‘s “With U” are also under the same situation.

ATV Music Publishing, the South Korean branch of Sony, just announced the verdict on these alleged similarities. Today on Sisa Magazine 2580 (시사매거진 2580), a news programme on MBC, it was reported that officials from Sony sent YG Entertainment warning letters regarding the plagiarism. Sony’s legal representative stated, “It was a hard decision for the music critics. However, they decided that there were similarities and accordingly issued a warning letter to the production company and composers. They have also denied YG Entertainment the permission to promote these songs.”

So I guess it’s official – all three entertainment companies of the Holy Trinity (aka SM, JYP & YG) are having some type of who-can-stir-the-biggest-controversy contest going on. In the span of a mere two months, we’ve seen mini implosions with TVXQ, Kangin, Jaebeom and now, officially, G-Dragon? Holy bejesus…

Regardless of whether you agree with this decision or not, I think Sony announced their “warning” (assuming they don’t take more drastic measures) a bit late in the game – even if G-Dragon gets knocked off, he’s already established a month-long reign over the music shows and generated explosive sales, including over 100,000 copies of his album in less than a week. Furthermore, fans already have their eyes on the “Breathe” MV which is coming out any hour now. Since “Breathe” got away scot-free, G-Dragon can still make the perfect getaway to a new song and new set of promotions… for now.

YG Entertainment has yet to respond regarding this issue. Stay tuned to allkpop as we remain the first to bring you breaking developments!
