Taiwanese pop star Jolin Tsai is currently surrounded with controversy regarding the music video of her newly-released single “PLAY” for its similarities with the music video of TaeTiSeo’s “Twinkle.”

According to a report by the Chinese website sina.com on November 6, Taiwanese singer Jolin Tsai is currently being doubted whether the music video of her new single “PLAY” did plagiarize TaeTiSeo’s “Twinkle.”

The scenes from Jolin Tsai’s “PLAY” music video that are being questioned are the ones wherein she appears in a tight shot with rollers on and another wherein she appears and walks on the red carpet where photographers snap photos of her. The said scenes are said to be very similar with TaeTiSeo’s music video for “Twinkle,” which was released in 2012.

Jolin Tsai’s agency has denied that they have plagiarized TaeTiSeo’s music video and said, “There absolutely was no plagiarism at all. Taiwan does not lack creativity that it will get to a point where it has to copy even such trivial things from Korea.”

Jolin Tsai, who is dubbed as “Asia’s Dancing Queen,” is the second highest earning Taiwanese pop star next to Jay Chou. She has made her debut in 1998 and has been one of Taiwan’s most popular singers since.
