GDragon gets slammed with another round of plagiarism accusations

gd_130809_1

Big Bang GDragon gets slammed with another round of plagiarism accusations.

After all the stir caused by plagiarism accusations for his upcoming solo album title song ‘HeartBreaker’, GDragon‘s ‘HeartBreaker’ album cover has also become the subject of the plagiarism talks.

The 30s preview to the title song ‘Heartbreaker’ was released on 11th August through GDragon‘s me2day account, and he was accused of plagiarising Flo Rida’s ‘Right Round’ for that song. YG Entertainment also came out to speak about the plagiarism accusations.

There were also subsequent accusations of plagiarisms for the song ‘Heartbreaker’ relating to Oasis‘s ‘She’s Electric’. And the song ‘Boy’ was also accused to have plagiarised that of Katharine Mcphee‘s ‘Not ur girl’.

With that fresh accusations of plagiarism arose that GDragon‘s album cover looks too similar to English band Spiritualized’s 2001 album ‘Let it come down’ jacket. Also there was also debates about how GDragon‘s concept for his album jacket looks similar to the concept of Lee JunKi‘s ‘JStyle’ album photoshoot.

Earlier, GDragon has also been criticised for the top he worn on to 2NE1TV showing the picture of a naked woman.

Netizens’ responses to these are:

  • “Isn’t this like exaggerating on GDragon‘s capabilities?”
  • ku*****, “If there are no problems, there are always accusations for plagiarism when such albums come out”
  • dr*****, “I always thought that he is a genius, but with all these accusations, I have my doubts about it”
  • nu*****, “This is not something illegal. Isn’t all these accusations too much for a young singer like him who has so much potential?”

My opinions are that, there are bounds to be netizens discussing about everything, that’s just them. But it’s always the media magnifying on these juicy sensational pieces to make news.

GDragon need to stay strong and keep his head up, like in ‘Gossip Boy’:

“From today onwards the reporters pick up their pens. Do you see the most searched items? A lot of netizens start to get tired fingers. The situation is beyond uncontrollable. Our country is a hot potato. Blink and it cools down. Enjoy yourselves, it could be fun. Yeah use me to get your kicks. Say like Superman, Batman, Gossip man, Hey man. What’s todays gossip. Can’t ever get any peace.”

  1. This is just bordering on insanity the songs dont even sound fucking simliar god and omg they’re always going to find something that is simliar to another artist but that doesnt mean its plagiarism JEEZ!!!! LIKE GET OVER YOURSELVES DUMBNUTS WHO KEEP SAYING HE IS PLAGIARIZING PEOPLES CAUSE HES NOT!!!

    XD any whoo~ G-Dragon keep going strong——FIGHTING!!

  2. aw poor gdragon 😦 if only everyone will stop going against him. It’s his first album and already there’s been accusations and such 😦 the song may be a teensy bit similar. but just leave the poor guy alone. GD’s amazing. i’ll always support him :]

    GD GOOD LUCK 🙂 FIGHTINGGG ^^

    • i agree could people stop accusing him !!!!!! 😡
      hes talneted and i love g dragon oppa so much!!!!
      gd hwaiting !!!!! 🙂

  3. wtf is their problem = = leave GD alone. they’re all so “jilthu” of him

  4. GD GENIUS ??? lol

  5. GD IS A GENIUS OF “CTRL+C CTRL+V”

  6. What the heck? why do they accuse him of plagerism? I have heard so many songs similar to ‘right round’ and all of those songs he’s supposedly copied. It’s the style of music people like, so of course there are similar songs! you might as well accuse everyone of plagerizing each other, it’s just as logical as accusing G-dragon of copying other’s songs. And if he wants to wear a shirt like that, it’s his choice. Just leave the poor guy alone to make his own disicions! It’s his life not yours, let him live it the way he wants to for goodness sake!

  7. yeah exactly! im not even korean but he just friggin rules!!!
    go GD, dont let them bring you down.
    they’re just jealous

  8. Is it even G-Dragon who composed and wrote the lyrics for those songs? If not then I can’t see why he should get blamed.. Like I don’t know all songs in the world, so I wouldn’t know if I one day sang a song that another artist has made – not even if they were totally alike…

  9. I’m gonna be honest here: the boy isn’t a musical genius.

    The english language sometimes fails to accurately describe or define a particular object/status etc, but IMHO, ‘Butterfly’ is unbelievably similar to Oasis’ ‘She’s Electric.’ You can’t deny it. I’m a pretty devoted YG fan; I heart Bigbang and 2NE1 like no tomorrow, so you can understand that naturally, I’m a fan of GD too.

    During the ‘Lies’ period, I honestly felt that the song he ‘plagiarised’, as well as ‘Lies’, were pretty common pop songs that all sound similar. However, I gotta say, following these rounds of accusations have kind of dampened his individuality to me. Obviously, a lot of the new musical ventures that Bigbang have taken (under GD’s wing) have already been in the US market for a long time. (I think someone already commented on what I’m about to say, but I cbf scrolling all the way up… sorry ^^) Nevertheless, GD’s hella smart by bringing in these new styles to KPop., but to call him a ‘musical genius’ is retarded. Wouldn’t you think a musical GENIUS would be able to compose music that goes to number 1 WITHOUT plagiarism accusations? Music that sounds completely original? There’s just been far too many pointing fingers throughout his career, and though many of them probably stemmed from his popularity etc, the dirt sticks. I’d rather say GD’s more of a marketing genius, if anything.

    I will say though, I don’t believe GD’s really plagiarised ‘Right Round’ or Katherine McPhee, but the similarities suggest he’s been inspired. As for Oasis’ ‘She’s Electric’ and ‘Butterfly’… they’re identical in chorus. It’s plagiarism from my view.

    As for the pictures and concept being called plagiarism? Get a grip. You can compare all the pictures and concepts in the world and they’ll all be plagiarising each other. Far out, are you going to say that the apple idea is copying Mac computers too? Is Mac gonna go sue GD for that too? Is the Devil going to send GDto eternal damnation for using the apple concept that he used to seduce Eve?

    Shut up.

  10. C’mon, even my 4 year nephew thinks it’s similar.
    Even though it’s not a plagiarism..

    How can you explain with ‘Butterfly?’

    The climax is exactly same as ‘She’s electric’

  11. ^ pretty much haha

    idk about the cover’s but the song ‘Leaders’ does sound like Snoop’s “drop it like its hot”

    its simple if u don’t like him/album or feel he’s ‘copied’ then don’t listen.

    on the other hand im all for fans supporting their artist but to think they can do no wrong?…

  12. If this happen to SME or Other Company
    ppl already bashing the artists and the company by now
    *roll eyes*

  13. wow. wtf
    GD is cool

  14. lets wait for my baby to rock your faces off!!!

  15. doesn’t matter what anyone says because we all know that people are still going to buy his album. GD hwaiting!! ❤

  16. GD, fighting ! 🙂

  17. You guys need to calm down. Yes, leave him alone but no one really is. All you guys can do is “deny & stuff” but really that’s not going to stop netizens to dig up stuff to accuse him. GDragon is not original, sorry, but he’s not. You guys need to get that through your head because really no one is original in KPOP. The naked lady on his shirt, yes, I know, not that big of a deal, but that’s because we’re in America. He’s in KOREA, they’re very conservative and respective towards things like that. You should know better than rock somethin’ like that. I mean, WOULD YOU? Especially if there’s 785927 fans looking at you and you’re on television. Yes he’s a grown man, but he’s a celebrity that’s different. He’s talented, but he’s not out of this world talented. Right round does sound like his teaser song ( I don’t know because I’m not a fan anymore ), can’t say “OMGOSH NO IT’S NOT!?!” Get your ears checked. Even though the song isn’t out nor the album from what I’m reading, the teaser does sound like Right Round.

    He’s a celebrity, he should get over it. I mean even though he’s human, you have to expect this shit. If not, you aren’t ready to become a celebrity. And depression? It’s not like he’s the only ONE who hasn’t gone through depression. Example: Yoona, SUNNY, Eeteuk, etc. Actresses, musicians, ETC. Probably even more, but doesn’t intend to share the whole wide world. I really don’t care anymore, I don’t give a shit about YG Ent. & their music, but I just thought I’ll give out my two cents. Peace.

    • so u give a shit to SME then ^^ good choice,hah ? Btw, talking about his tee…I’m not livin in America…but one of asian countries — so called conservative enough thogh….. Seeing him wearing those shirt at home is relly nothing. Yes it had been aired on cable TV…..But you see….it got blurred already !! What more you want ? Photoshop done ? If it was considered so damm wrong,,,,why Mnet staffs didnt ask him to change right after they saw it at his home ?? O.o

    • why tht crapping?
      he’s original, who are you to say he’s not?
      i think tht shirt is cuteeeeee.
      im from sg, kinda conservative, but still, i’d rather it’s a naked lady, thn a naked guy -.-
      so what if it sounds like Right Round?
      nothing is original.
      Flo Rida probably got inspired too!
      im pissed but still, peace.

    • why even waste your fingers’ energy commenting when u don’t give a shit about YG Ent. & their music?
      you mean you can do better than them then prove it.

  18. Gosh, NETIZENS!
    Whaaaateverrr. I just can’t wait for what
    GD has in store. I think the lyrics to
    “Gossip Man” fits this situation very well.

  19. omg seriously this shit is soooo annoying !
    ! and i swear these netizens are soo frkn picky and annoying
    they waste their times doing this shit ! GET A FKN LIFE !

    GD is fkn awesome !
    can’t wait till the 18th !

  20. why would g dragon want to steal music. And the photos? ANYONE can think of those ideas. Isn’t it just like.. a COINCIDENCE? god damnit.. just leave him alone. SOO FUCKING PICKY DAMNIT.

  21. WOW HONESTLY JSUT FUCK ALL THE FUCKING NETIZENS THAT BLOG ABOUT G-DRAGON PLAGIARIZING…………………HE’S NTO THE TYPE TO STEAL MUSIC. H’ES TOO ORIGINAL FOR THAT. HE MAY GET INFLUENCE FROM OTHER ARTISTS BUT HE IS DEFINITELY NOT A PLAGIARIST. holy SHIT netizens just CANT LEAVE PEOPLE ALONE CAN THEY. they so called “LOVE” their idols and artists. BUT THEY BAG ON THEM 24 FUCKIN 7.

    THEY JUST NEED TO
    SHUT
    THE
    FUCK
    UP
    AND STOP SPECULATING ON EVERY LITTLE TINY THING.
    WHO GIVES A FUCK IF A CENSORED OUT NAKED LADY IS ON ON HIS SHIRT…ITS NOT LIEK HE’S TRYING TO MAKE A DIRTY GESTURE OR IMPLY ANYTHING…ITS JUST A DAMN SHIRT

  22. people are getting too picky on plagarism….
    anything can be connected enough of you look into it enough
    people really need to let up
    so annoying!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. the song ‘heartbreaker’ sounds like oasis she’s electric? wha?
    I see the resemblance for flo rida’s song but Oasis?
    I’d like some comparisons please. lol
    Are you sure its the song ‘heartbreaker’ getting accused of relating to ‘she’s electric’ and not another song.
    cuz from the preview I don’t hear the resemblance at all.

  24. hehe you made a mistake. i think you meant to say “There were also subsequent accusations of plagiarisms for the song ‘Butterfly’ relating to Oasis’s ‘She’s Electric’. “

  25. You know the saying, ‘If there’s a wrong, there’s a right,’ or ‘If there’s a good, there’s a bad’?
    Well haters are just applying it to GD. I mean give him a f-ing break! What the heck did he do to make all this sh-t happen? To me, people are assuming and accusing to ‘play’ with him and his fans.

    Haters ask/say why the fans are going crazy or that its immature or fans are in denial. It’s because of the haters and what they comment! Fans only get hot when stupid people have stupid things to say. Look, it’s already pissing me off!

    I am patiently waiting for my copy of his album to come, so I suggest all you haters be patient until credits are noted. When he hits #1 on the charts, albums selling like hotcakes, his name plastered all over blogs because of his hot album, I will sit in front of my computer and laugh my ass off at you all.

    I am so damn curious why the haters are alllllllll in GD’s business, being bug-a-boos.

  26. CAN’T THEY JUST LEAVE HIM ALONE??!!
    Really, they’re on his back for everything.
    This is the problem with albums that are expected to be great. They always find some way to criticize every little thing. THEY NEED TO GET LIVES!! and they really shouldn’t be so doubtful. I mean, really, they should be happy that there are such great artists in the industry. And they’re just hurting the artists by bashing them and accusing them. WHO CARES WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE OR SOUNDS LIKE?!

    Okay, I’m done… I’ve let out my little rant. I’m sorry, if I offended anyone in this rant of mine.

  27. let the man be . he’s already had his share of depression why add all of this ? WOW he’s wearing a LADY on his shirt. what? you want a GUY? ghod he’s a GUY . A GUY . ugh;; at the end of the day we all know he’s a genuis at his work . so everyone please build a bridge and get over it .

  28. even though he may not be the best but keep in mind he is only 21 , lots more to come from him

  29. […] on G-Dragon are really nerving me, but not just because of GD. I’m mostly referring to this: GD gets slammed with another round of plagiarism accusations. Sure it bothers me that they are attacking him. But, it bothers me more that this baloney is […]

  30. how stupid can this get? they are just delibrately picking on him. why would the korean netizens deny him as a talent? isn’t it good to support your own countryman instead of putting him down all the time? many places would benefit culturally if we have someone as creative and out-of-the-box as GD

  31. This has gotten beyond annoying.

    Not only are they ruining this moment for GD,
    but they are also ruining it for the fans.

    This just isn’t right. It’s getting really pathetic.

  32. LEAVE HIM ALONE!!!

  33. KEEP THOSE ACCUSATIONS COMING! 😀 those stuff makes his album… sell more! 😀

  34. plus, whts with tht shirt?
    people can get really lame.
    you(guys) dare say you dont like such thing?

    or rather, okay, Jiyong is getting creative :p
    HAHA!
    he likes it, so why not?
    i mean he’s wearing a shirt with a sexy lady.
    you people would rather its a guy? -.-
    eww, lets hope you all wouldnt regret whn Jiyong changes it to a guy showing his _

    at the very least, a sexy lady is better thn a guy O:
    im being true.

  35. might as well say Jiyong’s mum copied all the other mothers to have sex then give birth and naming her child “Kwon Ji Yong” (im sure there are other koreans named Ji yong as well). save the trouble of accusing Jiyong for everything.

    what the hell is wrong with the netizens?!

    • oh dear…… ^0^ I was like >.< I was laughing so damm hard. You've got a point !! wahaha ^^

      • isn’t it the truth?? HAHAHA. soon they can start saying Ji yong shouldnt breathe cus it’s “copying others.” not that im biased but they really have to go re-dertermine their definition of “plagiarism.”

  36. Korean netizens should just learn how to keep quiet and learn how to appreciate music. HE’S KWON JIYONG. the guy who has 52++ songs under his name and officially written by him.

    WHY DOUBT HIM?

    when he’s popular, those netizens suck him up.
    when things like that happens, more and more incidents comes.

    -.-

  37. GD himnae… we ❤ u !!!

  38. lol people arent getting the difference between inspiration, reference, similar styles of artists, and plagiarism.
    rock songs share similar drum beats, similar guitar riffs, and very similar basslines.. it’s how you put them together that makes one an artist. there’s only so many colours ukno what i mean?
    it’s getting ridiculous to the point where any time one of these guys paint with the colour green, netizens will say they plagiarized grass.

  39. MAN, PEOPLE NEED TO LEAVE GDRAGON ALONE.

    fans should be glad that he’s finally release his own solo album instead of postpone it like he did in april or may. even though the songs might sounds like others… Gdragon can still pull it off with his own style/moves. and plus Gdragon looks hella fine with his new look for the album.

    THERE FOR SHUT UP YOUR BULLSHIT AND APPEICATE HIS HARD WORK. >_<

  40. ok seriously, i like news about jiyong and all but this is just getting stupid. first of all, people need to learn what it means to plagiarize. second of all, people need to learn that “true originality” does not exist and that there is such a thing as inspiration. and third of all, similarities always exist so there’s always some sort of common ground that you can find between two totally “different” things.

    this album cover shit. ya obviously, there are “similarities”. junki and jiyong are both wearing eyeliner and made themselves pale ghosts.. WHOA!!!! we’ve never seen that before right? -_-x

    and the other 2 album covers, they look like they’re inspired from some sort of marionette show. i bet netizens could make news about how both of those artists “TOTALLY PLAGIARIZED JABBAWOCKEEZ”.

    please, the korean media needs to get a hold of itself and so do the netizens who go around finding similarities between every single effing thing he does. this guy needs some breathing space and it’s not helping that people are just piling up the accusations against him. did it ever occur to you that he went depressed for a good reason?…

    seriously. this shit is getting old. the impatient people need to shut their pieholes and just wait til the actual album comes out before they start making judgment calls. it doesn’t make sense to point fingers when you’ve only seen a tiny piece of the whole picture.

    now how’s that for intellectual feedback and critique -_-x

    • cooooool, i totally agree on this (:
      Jiyong is just inspired and there’s no true orinality.
      why learning new things, do we say we copy?

    • Amen, buy the album first before you judge!!!!

  41. ughh, what the heck? Are you serious? ohmygod.
    Wow, Gossip Man much.
    G-Dragon, we support you still! & we’re soo excited
    for the album.

  42. themm netizens aintt got a life apart from hogging their keyboardds and findingg negative viewws of the worldd whilstt gee dee at their age is alreadyy achievingg FAYME

  43. The hell!!!

    just cause he died his hair into blonde and has white background for his album jacket, doesn’t mean that he plagiarize everything…

    dam that netizen!

  44. I just wish that people will stop all these talks about GD’s album. Seriously VIPs are very worried about Dae Sung. It’s really too much for us to handle at this moment

  45. If this a fashion like you said
    then wear it i know you can’t
    wear this staff because this
    is too shame & embarrassment 😦

  46. wow O_O everyone is tearing GD apart. poor guy

  47. that? i thought it’s an inspiration from lady gaga instead. the blond hair, that style.

    but whatever, i still like gdragon.

    it’s not like everyone can pull this kinda style off.

  48. Nitizens dont have anything else to do. they only have their mouths for bullsh-tting.

    and well, GD’s the NEXT TOPIC cause he’s releasing his new album, gladly.
    godd, GD has his own style, and possibly someone might doubt about the cover/jackets…

    once again, who cares??
    female dogs…

  49. These days I feel like whenever there’s news of GD there’s always something that includes plagiarism..It’s quite sad really and I can’t imagine how GD must feel.
    To those of you who seem to see absolutely no similarities between Junki’s photo, the album cover of the other artist and GD’s are either blind, in denial or delusional.
    They’re not exact copies but they share similar styles. And I don’t think it’s plagiarism. I think GD draws inspiration from a lot of things which is unfortunate for him in a way.

    Anyway, all the hating and scrutinising by netizens, anti’s and the media are either going to break him or make him stronger and bring out his full potential. Because now, his songs could have a deeper meaning instead of just love and happineess, which I have nothing against. He’s young though, and what I wanna see in his music is his opinion of what’s going on around him. Maybe that’s why I like Drunken Tiger.

    My that was a long and maybe pointless essay xD
    Can’t wait for the album though, but I’m bracing myself because I think once the full thing comes out they’ll be a lot more controversy -_____-

  50. in fact the way people overrated him was basically he was one outstanding among other idols….that’s all. nothing wrong with that title as long as he didn’t start calling himsels musical genius. which as far as I knew : from reading their Shouting book .

    They never realized themselves to those standard at all. GD called himself as someone who loves music and put so damn much effort to stay to this level. Nothing is known for him as gifted or talented. All he truly learned in the past years in this music industry was only from one word : ENDEAVOR.

    So why giving a shit to the word ”Genius” much,ha? As it cleared that he never see himself that far….I just love how hard he tried as well as other BB members to finally come this far. It’s very impressive and valuable just that.

  51. They just jealous because Gdragon is still young but talented

  52. i think it’s totally diff,,,, why netizen talk too harsh to GD?? when he do something, netizen always have a bad mouth to him…. just let GD alone….

  53. i like gd, but i’m not delusional. i think people overrate him so much, and sooner or later (if not already), it’ll put overwhelming pressure on him. seriously, yg needs to stop being ‘in-your-face’ with his artists (of course, initially, they seem so cool, but after a while, it gets VERY annoying) and labelling him the musical genius, because there are better people out there. yes, he’s better than most idols, but the best? certainly not. like i said, i have nothing against gd, but i hate the fact that people overrate him.

  54. I don’t see the similarities between Junki and GD concepts at all. Hell no. GD’s concept is considered all about the APPLE…Look at those 3-4 pics included those apple with red ( like bloody background )Adam’s apple…..Poisonous apple….you guys just need to think some real deep to figure out the meaning behind this Heartbreaker concept.

    The only reason to be resemble to each other is the look on their HAIR color perhaps. That’s called plagiarism ???? HAHAHA wtf is going on? and why when Kara with the same hair color and also Ft Island concept recently….no one care to arise the plagiarism issue to attck them ??? GD’s haters can’t be any retard ??? Come on man. Act smart !!!

  55. It’s easier to see these similarities if you don’t like the person they revolve around. Deep down, these netizens don’t care. They just feel like exposing him for shits and giggles lol They WANT him to fail. I never thought of him as a “genius” but he is a talented guy so…w/e. Let’s judge when the album drops plz.

  56. I WON’T PUT UP WITH SUCH NONSENSE !!

    that’s all what I can say !!

    FIGHTING JI YONG OPPA !!

    I LOVE YOU NO DOUBT ~

  57. I think thats the reason Gossip Man is being released first
    showing about how people cant stop gossiping about new things he create

    • nope gossip man got released first because they cant release heartbreaker until they edit the song. thanks 😀

      • Pessimistic much huhu 🙂 And yep Gossip Man was released just right after those accusations attacked him. Shoved to those haters face. Bang !! Just about time. Like it was all according to the plan,don’t ya think ? XD It was so much fun seeing the bombs netizens throwing at GD —- There’s no better way to help promoted his 1st album like this ever !! GD could never be under protected this much ever since his debut perhaps. Fans are gathering against prejudice !! Forever BB !!

  58. yeah ppl just trying to get attention for finding similarities. it’s so stupid cuz you will pretty much always find some something that reminds u of something else. netizens suck… it won’t matter though when GD gets a hot selling album regardless! let’s all buy this album and SUPPORT HIM!!

  59. …STFU dear Netizens 🙂

    what’s problem of that cute shirt?
    i wish i was a boy n wear one of those shirt’s ….cuz naked woman is so pretty than naked man 🙂
    if i wear it now they called me les.

    dear GD pls don’t be sad….these Netizens are so stupid…
    u deserve a medal .love u

  60. wow I find it very funny and interesting how everyone is defending GD and being a hypocrites dont get me wrong i like GD but lets face it both of the album cover is way similar or all most the same to Lee JunKi and English band Spiritualized cover album but everyone here is making an excuse for him and saying who cares, leave the guy alone or stupid netizen when most of GUYS do the same thing and bash other singers and groups for coping or having the same concept to other artists for example when Kara released their album cover everyone was saying they copied lady gaga and when 4minute released their album cover everyone was bashing them and saying that they copied 2NE1 concept and posting rude comments about them but when it comes to GD everyone is so supportive i really hate PHONY people

    AGAIN IM NOT ANITFAN AND I DONT HAVE ANYTHING AGAINST GD I WISH HIM BEST OF LUCK IN HIS ALBUM

    • lol i thought the same too! most of you diss on 4minute or kara and everything im sure. face it, gd concept is similar.we can’t say there’s no similarities.like 4minute and 2ne1 and afterschool. same for gd. but yeah, it’s hard to invent something new. well good luck gd 🙂

    • lol ikr? part of it is the fact that 1) he’s gdragon from big bang and people think he’s a genius 2) he’s from yg, a company that many think can do no wrong and 3)he’s a boy and from a boyband the double standard when it comes to boyband and girl groups is insane imo.

      don’t trip out on me either vips cause i actually like gdragon and big bang. the thing is though, i’m not delusional. i’m not saying outright that gdragon plagiarized. i don’t think he went to the extremes, but he’s been inspired that’s for sure. i just get annoyed when people see him as a musical genius, when he’s actually not. better than most idols his age, but is he the best and most creative (musically and fashionably)? hell no.

      • he’s good at music though…don’t hate.

      • he’s a music genius hell yes!

      • agreed on most points! The double standard is really bad -_- I just hope the people defending GD aren’t the ones accusing and bashing other artists for copying. It’s like saying “others groups will plagiarise but GD never will!!!”

        I have nothing against GD, and I certainly don’t think he or his team plagiarized in both fashion and music (unless his creative team is really that stupid..) But Lee Junki’s and GD’s photos are pretty similar here, still I’d think that it’s more of inspiration. Creative ideas don’t pop out of nowhere like many people believe, but rather inspired from various aspects of our lives -__-

    • U have good points. I didn’t even cross my mind. LOL

    • He was inspired. why not?
      We or rather i strongly believe tht he will not copy, like Why would he wnt to?
      There’s no fking reason to it, he’s just inspired, hell yes.

      Come on, face it too, everyone is supportive of G-Dragon, not because he’s our idol and we love him.
      But because we believed in him.
      He’s the man yeah.
      tTherefore, he did not copy.
      And, look at those photos!
      LeeJunKi’s and Jiyong’s photo!
      One is red and white as the theme and the other? All white.
      Whts the difference? You can see it well.

      LASTLY, WE ARE HELL NO HYPOCRITES! -.-
      No offence intended.

  61. I really wonder why all of k pop artists
    they always criticize GD?
    I mean like wtf. when GD would do something
    netizens would be like “askdjaskfhlsdhfls”
    and when there’s a new album
    netizens would be like “asfsdgdfhgDF”
    WTF?

  62. to me.. the pics are completely different..
    and the people who started this whole thing is sm people.. (if you go to daum or any korean website its right there). sm didnt want to be the only entertainment having a hard time so they are doing the same to yg.
    AND.. the reason tht gd’s solo was delayed , its aqs cause the netizrens keep on saying he plagiarised all those song he made and he needed a break. and here is another issue on him. and i trutly think tht netizens should stop. and he made it with his own talent. its not like they know how to make music like him. and tht and FLo Rida people said they wi.ll wait till the full song comes out.. why are they keep on saying tht. GOSH. korean netizens pisses me off (and koreans dont get mad at this comment cause i am korean myself and i was born there.)

    • ARE YOU SERIOUS ABOUT THE SM ISSUE. Then i must say, F*** SME THEN. SERIOUSLY. ITS THEIR OWN DAMNED PROBLEM THAT THEY’RE HAVING BLOODY PROBLEMS WITH DBSK AND NOW THEY WANT YG TO GO THROUGH SUCH PROBLEMS AS WELL? I’M REALLY SORRY THEN, FOR WHAT THEY’RE DOING IS SO DAMN RETARDED BECAUSE GD’S MUSIC IS ALWAYS THE BEST, BECAUSE WE VIPS CAN FEEL HIS LOVE AND HARD WORK AND THEREFORE, ONCE HIS ALBUM IS RELEASED, THOSE DAMNED NETIZENS WILL KNOW HOW GOOD OUR BOY ACTUALLY IS. HOPEFULLY GD’S MUSIC CAN SHUT THEM UP AND STOP THEM FROM DOING ALL THESE STUPID STUFF. OR MAYBE THEY’LL FIND EVEN MORE FAULT BUT WHATEVER MAN, IN OUR HEARTS, WE KNOW THAT BIGBANG IS ALWAYS NUMBER 1, AND GD, OUR BABY WHO IS WHAT MADE BIGBANG WHO THEY ARE TODAY, IS THE BESTEST BESTEST BEST GUY THAT WE CAN EVER FIND. UNDYING STARS FOREVER!

  63. lol those defamers are a bunch of jokes…hes only 21 , imagine how much potential he will have in 2~3 years time .

  64. pls give GD a break. thy have to face the fact that he’s got da talent.
    rubbish.

  65. Haters must suck. -_- cant they even come up with something with enough sense? *sigh*
    I just hope that Ji would stay strong despite of all these crappy accusations. You have us million VIPs in your back Bong. 🙂

  66. This is getting WAY out of hand. At first I was kind of swayed but this is just ridiculous. Do they want to destroy his career? This is getting so stupid, I’m not even going to give it my attention anymore, just going to trust and support GD.

  67. Stupid netizen….as usual haha

  68. I BEHLIEVE DATT DA WORD INSPIRAYTIONN DOESNT EXISTT IN THOSE WHOO AHCKKUSE MA GEEDEE FER PLAGIARISM N EVEN WEARYNGG DAT TEE

    AND GEEDEE ALSO PROVIDED US N DA WORLD TO NAWWT DOUBT HIS MANLINESS TOO
    DIDD DEY XPECKT GEEDEE TO WEAR A TEE WITH A GUYY ON ITTTT?????

  69. I’m not even a fan of G-Dragon or Big Bang, but I find these plagiarism accusations absolutely ridiculous.

  70. just ignore~ VIPs.we dont care e e e e :))

  71. yong oppa fighting!
    vip’s will unite for you!

  72. wtf is wrong with those netizens?!
    they are freaking ____ omgosh i dunno how to put it…
    gd muz be sick & tired of this..
    but pls STAY STRONG GD !!
    rmb what u said? “We will try hard to become undying stars.”
    Forever u will be the undying star in VIPs’ hearts no matter what ^^

  73. You know what !! I don’t f***ing care those accusations at all. GD will never be able to please everyone ——- especially all the haters who will finally diss him to death anyway anyhow. I’m happy already for this long await album. No matter how hard haters would love to bring him down….my love and respect for him is getting more and more increasing at what he has been going through. Kwon Jiyong …Keep walking okay…VIPs will always support you till the end !!

  74. I feel sorry for Bong, why do people keep critizising him.. X_X

  75. omg! seems like everything about his album is plagiarism to the eyes and ears of his beloved country people. I feel sorry for him, he went through delays and depression to get his album done. a couple of days ago before he releases any song from his album, he was very happy and excited, and his album will release in his birthday too, but now everything he has worked on turned against him. i cant imagine what he might feel right now. you gotta be strong GD. with all these accusations against him, i wonder if the release of his album might get delayed again. i hope not. GD fighting!

  76. leave this poor boy alone, fkers!
    those reporters are getting on my nerves!
    nah, those accusations are just nothing.

    JIYONG BABY FOREVER ❤
    we will support you forever!

  77. I agree with the song heartbreaker being plagiarize but not to this one.

  78. what in the name of bong??????? Omg I’m so sick of hearing this crap about gd did this he did that nietzens should jump off that band wagon already this is getting old motherf******** sorry. Gdragon can do whatever the hell he wants cos he is just awesome like that. What’s with all the haters and critics I don’t see anyone else who is doing a
    Solo getting this much attention just cos he is young and mother effing talented and writing his own stuff doing his own music doesn’t mean they should all start finding his wrong points!!! The guy is pure awesomeness they should just let him be.
    I don’t even know if any of that made sense but I’m just so frustrated with the crap!
    We love you kwon jiyong!!!!!!!!!!

    • LOL calm down jeebuzzzz..i’ve been through GD since LIES accusation & i must say i’ve been through that phase but lol be more productive about what you write please..and calm down ^^

      this is why some people who aren’t a fan of some groups/solo are annoyed at people who write like this >_<

  79. i suppose since his cover was considered plagarizing lee jun ki’s than everyone who has blonde hair on their covers are plagarizing each other everyone with ceramic capping teeth are plagarizing each other everyone who’s having plastic surgery to get sharp noses are plagarizing each other.

    stupidity has no boundaries.

  80. Well..this never ends huh. It gets very hyped up especially when Jiyong is about to do his stuff. Some antis are just worried that he will more successful then ever. Lol..screw that. Jiyong needs to stay strong.

  81. IMO..I never find him a genius..
    Creatif, yes..not a genius..
    his music is prolly inovatif and new for netizen but its been way round the community of US hip hop a long time a go..
    He’s just bring the sound and renew it to the K-pop scene..
    Bite me but its true..

    • and thats the point, its KPOP, not US. and no he’s not a “tif” and not a genius but he works hard to improve and polish his potential.

    • I agree with u….he has talent n creative but not genius. Genius belongs to Tablo….^^
      However, i like 2 out of the 3 teasers n 1 full track released. Gud luck GD….I think he saw this coming.

  82. why the fu** are those netizens doing this? Simply,,,cuz clearly GD is one of the top idols who has almost a largest fanbase among other idol group members in Korea right now !! Unfortunately, he also seems to have a large amount of antis in the same time ^^ So let them be. Bad publicity is still better than no publicity. I believe whatever he come up with in the near future — antis will follow and diss him no matter what. So stay strong GD.

    It’s so pathetic that one could ever see comparison in those album cover in similarity.. For real !! ? also with the concep with Lee junki ? Okay….so from now on — no one can ever do the same hair color with some artist had done before hah ? Retarded !!

  83. I’m so sorry to those who want to put him down..bc I have already pre-ordered his album
    hahahahahahaha…the netizens can keep accusing him but I will keep supporting him….hahahahahaha

    • they can talk whatever they want but my love for GD and BB will never change…hehehehehe

  84. I think Bong/GD is expecting these things, especially from his past experiences (not the plagiarism issue, but him as a subject of controversy). Gossip Man is exactly the current situation. I don’t think he will get fazed from these “accusations”.

    And people keep forgetting he’s only turning 21 (western age) on the 18th.

    I still say he’s a genius and he’ll do well in his solo album promotions. Also, whether fans or haters or critics, all eyes will be on GD on his birthday. LOVE IT.

    • lol i bet he does & LOVE the attention

      as said many times bad publicity is still a publicity, people will get more interested in him with all the accusation

      • Why the hell would jiyong LOOOOVE the bloody attention if it’s all negative and all so insulting? I mean seriously, like everyone is saying, GIVE HIM A DAMNED BREAK. HE IS, AFTERALL, A BLOODY HUMAN. WHO WOULD BE HAPPY IF HE WAS ACCUSED OF PLAGIARISM FOR EVERY SINGLE BLOODY THING OF HIS FIRST SOLO ALBUM THAT HE WORKED SO BLOODY HARD FOR, AND WHICH WILL ALSO BE RELEASED ON HIS BIRTHDAY?!
        Really sorry, I’m not scolding you but seriously! Can’t stand what the damned media is doing. Can’t they just appreciate how hard Jiyong has been working for?! Do they just have to focus on all these stupid issues and not on his music?

      • There’s nothing more insulting for a composer to be accused of plagiarism.

        I’m pretty sure he doesn’t appreciate this kind of attention.

  85. WTF?!?!??
    IT DOESNT EVEN LOOK THE SAME
    GD HAS HIS OWN IDEAS.
    THEY LOOK DIFFERENT

  86. He’s only 21 but he has achieved so much so people find every chance they can to belittle his talent. I don’t care. I support him. Stay strong GD, VIPs are always behind you

  87. like seriously, i get about the music but this is an outcry of really FAR FETCHING it oh gosh * roll eyes*

  88. i feel so bad for GD.
    but then he has his parents (especially his mom), and people like us who believe in him, i’ll support him no matter what.

  89. Crap, give the guy a break. He’s bloody talented. Let him show his inner talents and the real side of him for once. Jealousy.. sighs. Go GD!

  90. They should just leave GD alone -_-;;
    Even with just a few similarities netizens are already ready to attack…
    they should just step back and let him do his thing and judge the overall outcome after it comes comes out… so many accusations…. =[
    I still believe in GD and his musical, artistic genuis-ness
    ~Hwaiting! ^^

  91. oh i know!
    next netizens will start saying g-dragon plagiarized HIMSELF. or that the name g-dragon is similar to another singer named jiiiiii-dhragh00n.

    seriously. -.-;

    • wow, they are on a roll. :/ i’m not a fan or anything but back off already. photographers reused same styles all the time, this is nothing new.

  92. Leave the boy alone.
    He needs to breath.

    Everywhere there are bound to have some similiarities.
    Fashion, Song, Food, Culture & etc

    GD Hwaiting
    Don’t listen to their bullshit.
    Stay strong and follow to your belief.

  93. dang it…. -.- what the ………..is this!?? why are they doing that to HIM?! .. …..gd fighting..
