B1A4 was plagiarized by a popular Indian singer.
On Nov 25, the music video for Tony Kakkar and Neha Kakkar’s new song “Shona Shona” was released on YouTube.
However, this music video is the exact copy of “Like a Movie,” the song B1A4 dropped recently as a whole group for the first time in 3 years. However, the music video garnered 33 million views in just a week and even received favorable reviews from fans as an “adorable music video,” making netizens frown.
The music video for “Shona Shona” copied the entire story of “Like a Movie,” which was carefully crafted by the production company Sunny Visual director Yoo Seong Kyun. Not only is the overall storytelling exactly the same, background, colors and even the little details and props are all plagiarized. In all, it’s just a cuter and more bouncy version of “Like a Movie.”
In addition to B1A4’s “Like a Movie,” they also plagiarized some scenes from the music video of IZ* ONE’s title track “Twelve.” The color and structure of the set representing the street and subway are the same.
B1A4’s agency WM Entertainment told SPOTVNEWS, “The company is already aware of this. We are carefully reviewing our future actions.”
