Recently, artist Davis McCarty wrote on his Twitter, “All time best selling, Korean K-pop band TWICE steals my design for their music video. It already has 15 million views since it’s launch today on YouTube. This is a blatant copyright infringement.”

He then added pictures of his sculpture “Pulse Portal” and the parts of the music video of “MORE & MORE” as evidences. His work “Pulse Portal” was featured as the first stop at Baltimore’s Light City Art Walk.

He then sarcastically commented, “It is super magical to realize that something I sketched in my journal just influenced the World. Again.”

Currently, the post has been deleted.

Previously, TWICE was pointed out that the music video for their title song “FANCY” was similar to Japanese girl group E-girls’s music video for “Pink Champagne,” which was released in July 2016.

In this regard, JYP Entertainment responded, “This morning, we realized that a set in the MORE & MORE music video was similar to a certain work. So we asked the mv director to talk to the original artist of the work so that the problem could be resolved smoothly.”

Meanwhile, TWICE made a splendid comeback with their 9th mini-album MORE & MORE on June 1. As soon as the song was released, it topped the music charts, proving TWICE’s popularity once again.
