BIGHIT MUSIC Denies Allegations Of Plagiarism Regarding BTS’s Jungkook’s “Seven”
On August 22, one media outlet reported that Jungkook’s “Seven” allegedly borrowed a main portion of Fin.K.L’s song “Time of mask,” which was released in 2000.
In response to the allegations, BTS’s agency BIGHIT MUSIC stated, “We would like to inform you that the claims of copyright infringement regarding Jungkook’s ‘Seven’ are not true.”
They continued, “‘Seven’ is a song that was made through the collaboration of five foreign composers, and it is a creation that is completely unrelated to the song on a domestic album from 24 years ago like some are claiming. They are one-sided claims that do not meet any criteria such as substantial similarity and principles in determining plagiarism.”
Since its release, Jungkook’s “Seven” has been making history by setting new records and topping numerous charts including those on Billboard, Spotify, the Official Charts, and more.
