Singer-songwriter Yoo Hee Yeol is facing multiple plagiarism allegations.

Following suspicions over the similarity between Yoo Hee Yeol and Ryuichi Sakamoto’s songs, an Internet user raised a new plagiarism allegation against the South Korean singer. The user claimed that Sung Si Kyung’s “Happy Birthday to You” and Koji Tamaki’s “Happy Birthday to You,” sounds very similar and pointed out that it was Hee Yeol who wrote, composed, and produced Sung Si Kyung’s song

Users are demanding Yoo Hee Yeol for an explanation regarding the issue as he is currently facing multiple other plagiarism allegations.

On June 14th, Yoo Hee Yeol issued an official apology on Antenna’s Facebook, saying, “I admit that ‘A Most Private Evening’ from Yoo Hee Yeol’s Life Music project sounds very similar to Ryuichi Sakamoto’s ‘Aqua.’ I sincerely apologize for what had happened.”

The South Korean song producer is currently facing other plagiarism allegations for the similarity of his song “Time to Turn On” with Ryuichi Sakamoto’s “1900.”

People also pointed out that his song, ”Please Don’t Go My Girl,” which he first showcased on MBC’s Infinite Challenge, also sounds similar to Public Announcement’s “Body Bumpin.”
