Composer claims Psy's "Gangnam Style" plagiarized his ballad

Article: Psy 'Gangnam Style' faces plagiarism lawsuit... "Noise marketing"?

E-Today via Nate + Naver

A composer is claiming that Psy's "Gangnam Style" is a plagiarization of his ballad track, which he composed in 2009. His song, however, was released four months after Psy's was. Professionals who took a listen have all claimed that it's difficult to call it plagiarism.

His lawsuit was filed on October of last year.

YG is saying that there's nothing similar about the two songs and is accusing him of noise marketing to raise his digital profit.

1. [+183, -1] The minute you search up the song to hear how similar it is, you're basically falling prey to the composer's tactic.

2. [+113, -1] The fact that we're even taking an interest in it means his noise marketing is working. Don't leave a comment or anything.

3. [+11, -0] I thought up the Gangnam Style melody in 2008 but it's still preserved in my head and I've never released it as a song yet. I better hurry up and file a lawsuit too.


1. [+126, -3] He shut up when the song was just released and he's now claiming plagiarism because the song hit daebak

2. [+105, -4] How pathetic, he's groveling for seconds, hoping that some of the daebak will come to him~ Sigh~

3. [+68, -2] Everyone's been claiming Gangnam Style as theirs ever since it became a hit ㅋㅋㅋ



  1. so where can we hear that song?

  2. Yup, its noise marketing indeed.

  3. I thought up the horse dance when I was trying to hold my pee in 1st grade. I better go claim my lawsuit on that dance before PSY keeps earning money off my original idea. |:

  4. well ballad? can't imagine how it sound

  5. For some reason this reminds me an episode of the japanese drama 'legal high' in an episode there's a punk rock band who claims that their songs have been plagiarized by a popular ballad artist, but no one believed them because at first listening it doesn't sound the same at all, lol.
    They should check the sheets music.

  6. Ive been waiting for a gangnam style plagarism case as soon as the song came out, but it never happened.

    Whenever I watch "Showtime," a Filipino noontime variety show, the DJ would always play this one song whenever something funny happens (before GS came out), and the beats and sounds are similar to GS, I hope any filipino showtimers, or TFC subscribers know what song it is, because I dont know the title of it:(

    GS and that song sounded so similar that when GS came out, the DJ would actually mash the songs or play it right after the other, and it blended in so smoothly.

    They dont use both songs anymore, and use new ones now.

  7. Gangnam Style ballad, really?

  8. Korea is becoming the next China!
    Now they even want to plagiarized "Harlem Shake" with whatever "Shake".

  9. Ugh Filipinos can be so embarrassing sometimes. Do you have to mention/make reference to Filipinos with every comment you make? :| I'm Filipino too and I'm proud to be one but I don't feel the need to make it apparent all the time. Srsly, parang epal lang.
