SS501 Comeback delayed Due To Plagarism issues

H

It has been a year and seven months since the five boys came together to record as a whole. From the Boys Over Flowers craze to their first world tour, SS501 is bigger, stronger and better than ever.

The group’s new mini-album, Rebirth, was set for release in August. However, during the creative process of compiling the record, the title track ended up being an exact replica of another American song.

“We had a different title track, but it ended up being a plagiarism copy,” says SS501, “If we ended up releasing it, we could have been in a lot of legal trouble.”

SS501 received their ex-title song through an unknown agency. The group recorded the song, but by the end of their Japanese leg of the tour, they realized that there was another song very similar, and then it finally became official that the song was indeed a product of plagiarism.

“We’re very sorry that it was delayed for such a long time,” SS501 said to the fans, “It was a very hectic process, but we are satisfied with the results. We hope you like it as well. Please keep supporting us!”

The long awaited mini-album will be released on the 20th of October. The title song will be “Love Like This,” first performed live in their Seoul concert back in August. Along with “Love Like This,” there will be 4 brand new songs.

The boys recently wrapped up their Taipei concert with over 12,000 fans present.

SS501: “About Dong Bang Shin Ki, because we are colleagues it is saddening”

ASS501 expressed their feelings about group Dong Bang Shin Ki amidst this time where they are in danger of disbandment.

During their 1st Asia concert tour Persona concert press conference in Taiwan Taipei on 17th October, SS501 said, “Dong Bang Shin Ki is the representative group in Korea, and now that they are in such an uncertain time, as colleagues we feel sad about it. We hope that the situation will turn out well eventually.”

SS501 also spoke about recent cases of idol group members and their mishaps and mistakes, “Even though a mistake is a mistake, sometimes we are also under a lot of finger-pointing. Even so, we feel that entertainers should be careful with their actions and words.”

The eye contact between’s Big Bang’s leader G-Dragon and 2NE1’s weiner, Sandara Park aka Dara was a hot issue today.

G-Dragon performed today at Korea’s Global Gathering event and had KUSH as well as Dara join him on stage. G-Dragon’s new album is not only consisted of well written songs but also features many great artists from Teddy to CL to Dara to KUSH.

When Dara joined him on stage for their duet song, Hello, people noticed the amazing chemistry between the two performers. Netizens commented, “Are they dating?”, “Alright, just go out already!”, “Aww they would be a young boy-older woman couple!”, and “They both have a cute face so they look good together.” I won’t mention the jealous fans but there was one comment that caught my eye. It’s a bit off topic but… “Dara kind of looks like BoA.” Doesn’t she?

Though we all know that it’s not love that is bringing the enthusiastic performance, it’s their amazing stage persona.

Check out some pictures where they make some intense eye contact! Hope to see even more 2NE1-Big Bang action in the future!
