Bahnus Charged For Fraud,Pleads Guilty And Case Proceeds To Prosecution

Plagiarism producer Bahnus,who gave a total of 6 songs stolen from original composers to singer Lee Hyori during her 4th album recording has plead guilty to fraud charges pressed against him.

Bahnus known as Mr Lee revealed to the police of Seodaemun that he gave the songs to Lee Hyori and to her company at the time,Mnet Media,under his own name when those songs were in fact stolen from the originals creators.

He also told the police that he gathered the songs from illegal download sites for free,songs which were composed by American and Canadian artists and wanted to benefit from them.

He had previously claimed that those songs were illegally leaked on various download portals before and that he and his group of producers were the only ones who owned the rights of the tracks.

The plagiarism issues damaged Lee Hyori’s 4th album promotional activities and her reputation in the music industry.

The singer revealed this matter to her fans on her official fancafe and apologized to them back in late June,she had also stated that she would take full responsabilty.

Mnet Media stand on this was that : “We will take full responsibility and will solve this matter for Lee Hyori,even though she didn’t renew the contract with us.We are aware that the plagiarism issue has put Hyori and Mnet Media in a bad position,affecting H-Logic’s album sales and damaging her image.”

Investigations have come to an end,the case will now proceed to Prosecution.
