Bahnus Prosecuted for Hyori’s Album Plagiarism Accusations
As televised on SBS “8News” today, police has remitted composer Bahnus for further prosecution in regards to Lee Hyori’s plagiarism controversy. It has been confirmed through investigation results that in the beginning of this year when Lee Hyori was looking for songs from her upcoming fourth album, Bahnus used American and Canadian artists’ songs for his own. The composer had received 29,000,000 won for the songs, but is now charged for scamming and business disruption.
Although Lee Hyori’s plagiarism controversy damages have reached legal grounds, the singer feels that she has not been able to totally free herself from ethic responsibility, especially since she took part in the album production herself.
