FT Island accused of plagiarising again, this time with the song ‘Bing Bing Bing’

FT Island gets involved in plagiarism issues with song from their new album.

According to a particular discussion forum, there were criticisms saying that “Bing Bing Bing“, song from FT Island’s 3rd album, resembles English band, McFly’s “Five Colours In Her Hair“.

Some netizens uploaded both songs on blogs and communities, and pointed out that the interlude for both songs are similar.

However, based on the tele-conversation between FT Island’s management and one of the reporters, they revealed that they “didn’t know about it” and that they will investigate the issue and give their stand.

According to the Korea Music Copyright Association, the composer for “Bing Bing Bing” was registered under the name “HOONY”, and without any statements of samplings or remakes of the song.
