Hyomin clarifies plagiarizing Zico's lyrics


Article: Hyomin opens up about her plagiarism controversy, "I contacted Zico and got his help"

Source: Mydaily via Nate

1. [+640, -8] She talked about the song as if it was her first ever lyrics written and left out the part about Zico entirely but now that people are calling her out, she thinks she can get away with saying "I got help from Zico ^0^"... She knows all the ways to get people to hate her.

2. [+566, -7] Hyomin never talked about Zico in her interview ㅋ Only until she got caught did she finally admit it.

3. [+327, -7] She completely ripped off Zico's lyrics only to turn around and say she got help but what's confidently written on the credits is "lyricist Hyomin, composer Hyomin" this sex machine is even lying to our faces now!!!!!! tsk tsk

4. [+19, -0] The lyrics were not simply written with "help" from Zico... You completely copied his lyrics. How is that him helping you? Did you do it on purpose? To get in the headlines? ;;;

5. [+17, -0] Then don't say the song is a self-composition. Add Zico to the lyric writing credits. You copied and pasted his lyrics and call it your own work? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+16, -0] First of all, it's not plagiarism because Zico agreed to his lyrics being used... but it's quite obvious that Hyomin's attempt at creating a singer-songwriter image for herself backfired. And copyright law states that Zico needs to be credited since his lyrics are in the song. Since she also mentions many hpeople helping her, I doubt Zico's the only one who participated in this. Can you really call a song worked on by the hands of many as your own creation?

7. [+15, -0] This is straight up plagiarism ㅋㅋㅋ She said so in her interview that she never received influence from anyone but only until the plagiarism controversy erupted did she finally admit to it ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Just screw off already, will you?

8. [+11, -0] Move the copyright to Zico, he did not help you at all, you straight up copied his work

  1. Well, Zico is Taewoon's brother. Taewoon and Hyomin are pretty close

  2. Is Zico still dating HwaYoung?


    If he still does, then it's so awkward.

    Taewoon, Zico's brother helped her apparently and they asked Zico for permission.


    I don't really see a problem

    ReplyDelete
  6. Zico also tweeted about this and said that he gave Hyomin permission to use his lyrics, so that's done with - but why did she not give him credits for his work? That's just unfair.

    ReplyDelete
  7. apparently it was just a rumor lol, it was neither confirmed nor denied so i don't think it was true :L

    ReplyDelete
  8. People too busy with Park Bom, to worry about this haha

    ReplyDelete

  11. Mercury & PerfectionJuly 1, 2014 at 8:33 AM

    Not even in her album?

    ReplyDelete
  12. This whole debut is a mess

    ReplyDelete
  13. If he's still dating HwaYoung, then the bullying rumours might not be true?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Apparently not; that's why Zico also tweeted about it (to say that yes, he did give her permission) because people were accusing her of plagiarism.

    ReplyDelete
  15. if zico wrote this damaging filth i have to say i'm disappointed

    ReplyDelete
  16. maybe that's why he didn't want the song to be copyrighted to his name.

    ReplyDelete
  17. What is Zico's original song called?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I don't think he cares cause if he did, he would have insisted that they credit him.

    ReplyDelete
  19. i like hyomin so much (female kris! female kris!) but this song has the worst message ide

    ReplyDelete
  20. she copied lyrics from 3 or 4 zico's songs but talked about every line came from her own experience LOL

    ReplyDelete
  21. Mercury & PerfectionJuly 1, 2014 at 8:39 AM

    Ah well as long as Zico is fine I still don't really see a problem.. even though they should've given out proper credit

    ReplyDelete
  22. she copied 4songs..and woo brother had to apologized for it

    ReplyDelete
  23. SIGHSIGHSIGHS

    ReplyDelete
  24. she said she sorry about that and Zico gave Hyomin permission to use his lyrics. "Overcome" use few lyric in Zico's song not all, i really love this song

    ReplyDelete
  25. Well She need to credit Zico and Taewoon even if they gave her permission to use their lyrics.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hyomin and her Company is the one need to apologies

    ReplyDelete
  27. brilliant is, movie's over, dead leaves, god answered

    ReplyDelete
  28. Pretty sure that was just a rumour made up by allkpop, but correct me if I'm wrong^^

    ReplyDelete
  29. It's look like her Company trying to cover up using Zico & Taewoon

    ReplyDelete
  30. she mention Taewoon in her album

    ReplyDelete
  31. no, she copied his lyrics from 4 songs

    ReplyDelete
  32. because lyics are an important part of a song??Don't you know that many times lyrics are the ones that make a song good and that most non-title tracks depend on the lyrics' power??It's not only about catchy tunes.

    ReplyDelete
  33. She even said it her own song. Not copied anyone lmao

    ReplyDelete
  34. she mention Taewoon in her album, u can see in allkpop that he help her

    ReplyDelete
  35. /rolling my eyes so hard it comes out from its socket

    ReplyDelete
  36. Her fan like "zico should be honored hyomin liked his lyrics" WTF

    ReplyDelete
  37. does anyone have an english translation of this?

    ReplyDelete
  38. "his sex machine is even lying to our faces now!!!!!! tsk tsk"
    What did you expect? She's got no shame or morals, after all she's in KKS's T-error group.

    ReplyDelete
  39. how is sex machine an insult

    ReplyDelete
  40. this song is Overcome not Nicebody

    ReplyDelete
  41. It doesn't matter if he doesn't care. CCM should've credited Zico out of respect for his work.

    ReplyDelete
  42. If Zico don't care why do you care?

    ReplyDelete
  43. did Zico write the whole song or some part only ?

    ReplyDelete
  44. If you are a public person in conservative and always butthurt Korea then yes. In that case yes.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm not her haters, but BOOO.. thumbs down for her. If she got help by zico, she should give credit to him.

    ReplyDelete
  46. who said that, im T-ara fan but i dont see anything like that

    ReplyDelete
  47. I think even she didn't credit him in her album, at least she should mention him in Thanks to.. Did she?

    ReplyDelete
  48. he didn't write the song, hyomin did but she copied his lyrics from 4 songs but didn't give credit nor mention it

    ReplyDelete
  49. OMG . really ?? that's wrong -..-

    ReplyDelete
  50. it's not about whether he cares or not lmao
    -> even if he gave her permission, unless it was written and formal, she's opening herself up to a lawsuit
    -> as an artist i have to take offense that an artist's work is being used with NO CREDIT, let alone no compensation. that SUCKS.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Kid,he gave her permission to copy doesn't mean he don't want the credit. Who do not want credit for their work?

    ReplyDelete
  52. Where you expecting anything else apart from failure?

    ReplyDelete
  53. why are people using that fact as a point?? By that logic Zico's friends, Taewoon's friends, the son of the neighboor whose mother is friends with Zico's mother, everyone should copy Zico and not give him credit!!!!Makes perfect sense!!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. this person right here https://twitter.com/beautifuIsniper/status/483789778622873602

    ReplyDelete
  55. Yes, Hyomin's partly at fault. But the problem isn't that big since Hyomin and Woo brothers already worked things out, they have good relationship so there's no need for fans to "claim justice" here. Case closed.


    Not related but I found a nice photo of Kidoh that Taewoon retweeted. Really miss the guy. Wonder if they are close...

    ReplyDelete
  56. she did gave him CREDIT in HER ALBUM

    ReplyDelete
  57. This is K-pop, everyone cares about everything, it's the number one carebear genre of the world.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I can't believe I made an acc for this...
    BBC just pointed out Hyomin's lyrics from her 'self-composed' and 'self-WRITTEN'. it wasn't even a similar line but LINES. she purely copy pasted it.
    then taewoon tweeted that he helped hyomin and zico already gave permission.
    what make bbc made is that she didn't put any credit of zico's work. inspired or whatever she copy pasted HIS LYRICS.
    then zico confirmed it (dunno if taewoon texted him or what) he said it was true he gave permission for her to use his lyric and sorry for not informing in advance (cause it wasn't his duty after all)
    then taewoon deleted his tweet.
    then hyomin tweeted her apologize.
    then taewoon tweeted that he has nothing to do with hyomin's song.
    bbc already forgot about that thing (zico said to just focus on upcoming album)
    but then they just needed to tweeted about again with a loooooong and confusing explanation (typical ccm)

    ReplyDelete
  59. That funny, everybody say that "Nicebody is nice song but lyrics is worst message so i dont like it ". if music not good that song is not good. im not Korean so i dont know Hangu, feel music first than see sub

    ReplyDelete
  60. She should at least thankful to him, and mention his name, don't u think so?

    ReplyDelete
  61. Because the reason Hyomin is being accused of plagiarism is because she did not credit him. If she (or CCM) had included Zico's name in the credits, this wouldn't have been an issue.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Old timer.. How do you know he wasn't compensated other ways? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  63. That's like saying should be honored that I like him/her. Wow.

    ReplyDelete
  64. She didn't only after people pointed it out.

    ReplyDelete
  65. cause this article wasn't about nice body

    ReplyDelete
  66. the song's title that she copied is overcome

    ReplyDelete
  67. How do you know he wasn't compensated?

    ReplyDelete
  68. it's not Nice Body, it's Overcome

    ReplyDelete
  69. Why are you being so ignorant? It's common courtesy to acknowledge help when you receive it. NOT crediting people for their work is plagiarism, and that's why Hyomin is being bashed.

    ReplyDelete
  70. "Zico is Taewoon's brother" that should make sense

    ReplyDelete
  71. Who cares.. It's between them. Maybe he was paid already..

    ReplyDelete
  72. lol he's clearly not bothered by this so stop whining

    ReplyDelete
  73. Apparently she did not. I don't know because I didn't check her album.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Payment isn't the damn issue here.

  76. yes, her mistakes is not metion Zico but if Zico dont feel uncomfortable why BBC act like she is evil. Zico said OK

  78. This is news? YG artists have been pretending to write and produce their own music for years. I think Sunny Hill did too when they'd say Janghyun produced all their songs despite all the tracks sounding exactly like Kim Eana and Lee Min Soo compositions lmao. 95% of idols either lie about self-composing songs, or they exaggerate their input. I'm sure G-Dragon has input in the songs he makes but I don't believe for a second he does any of it from scratch since they all somehow sound exactly the same as Teddy's productions, meaning that Teddy probably does the bulk of the work then slaps BIGBANG member whoever's name on it so YG can media play that their roster are 'artists' not idols. This is pretty common in pop music everywhere. It's just Hyomin that's been busted for it since people hate T-ara so they're always looking for new scandals to make around the group. Not excusing Hyomin (I don't even fully understand the scandal, if she copied lyrics or just didn't credit someone or just received advice or what) but just sayin' she is not the only one to bullshit about writing and composing.

    ReplyDelete
  79. He didn't write it. Hyomin just took several lines from his songs.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Umm... Didn't Zico clarify it himself, that he did help her, and it wasn't a problem? I think he twitted about it...

    ReplyDelete
  81. and then ccm told the press "It was the fault of the netizens who pointed out the lyrics even when they didn't know anything"

    ReplyDelete
  82. Because as a BBC, I find it unfair that Zico is not being credited properly for his work. Writing lyrics isn't easy and takes time, so I think that Hyomin (or CCM, whoever was in charge of this) should've at least have the decency to acknowledge his help.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Wow that Company did their thing again. Blamed on KBBCs and Zico wow

    ReplyDelete
  84. Wow, did CCM really say that?

    ReplyDelete
  85. Get over yourself.. You are getting all worked up over other people's business..

    ReplyDelete
  86. He did, but the problem is that they didn't credit him.

    ReplyDelete
  87. close or not it's copyright we talking here... maybe a little credit or thanks to?

    ReplyDelete
  88. How about using ghost writer?

    ReplyDelete

  90. that was my bad, i thought she had stolen his lyrics for nice body (IT HAS BEEN A DAY AND I AM STILL ANGRY ABOUT THIS SONG), not whatever this other one is.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Ah, ok. That makes more sense. Because BBC's are genuinely the nicest fandom I've ever seen, I was confused about the outrage. Thanks for clarifying.

    ReplyDelete
  92. If it bothers you so much you should sue Hyomin and CCM on behalf of Zico.. :/

    ReplyDelete
  93. I mean, honestly, how hard is it to add an extra name to the credits?

    ReplyDelete
  94. rly ccm??

    rly??

    well, for YG's album, they did give credits to other producers tho which is different in Hyomin's case. We all know other YG composers help GD but a lot of BB popular songs's main producer is GD but he mostly has others make arrangement for him.
    Not saying that Hyomin should get cursed and bashed but I do think that CCM should credit Zico in the album.

    ReplyDelete
  96. do you think why did zico clarify it? because taewoon is involved here. he was in the middle of his work. not bother to checked internet I bet. then he tweeted just like what the heck was this shit let's just focus on block b upcoming album.
    it was her 'self-composed' song. she shouldn't claimed it like that if taewoon and zico help it

    ReplyDelete
  97. Your ignorance is making me speechless. Do you really not see the problem here?

    ReplyDelete
  98. From Taewoon's twitter @bkgo123

    "While we were working on the song ‘담’ that was released yesterday, I was checking the rapping and the lyrics while coaching and giving advices. And as I was helping, noona had some parts from my brother’s songs that she was inspired from, these parts are ones that we proceeded with after I called Zico and told him about it. Sorry for not saying this in advance. “

    ReplyDelete
  99. Her and her Company not even bother to credit Zico. They only did after the scandal broke out

    ReplyDelete
  100. It's because she acted like it was self written, and didn't give credit to Zico. He said it was okay for her to use his lyrics, but she still has to give him credit.
    The song isn't self composed (by hyomin)

    ReplyDelete
  101. the lyrics are from Overcome

    ReplyDelete
  102. WTF CCM not say nothing like that, Im T-ara fan and i know everthing in this issue. it all about Hyomin, Taewoon and Zico. CCM dont say anything like that not in Twitter, facebook, no acticle

    ReplyDelete
  103. "inspired"

    http://www.reactiongifs.com/r/2013/08/air-quotes.gif

    ReplyDelete
  104. Nope.. The only problem here is a crazy BBC fan who can't except that Zico is ok with this.. I'm not even a T-ara fan and I can look at this situation objectively.. If Zico has a problem with not getting credit I'm sure he will take care of it without your help..

    ReplyDelete
  105. Norimix seems like a troll, just let it go. The person is trying to get you angry. Don't feed the trolls.

    ReplyDelete
  106. No..CCM never release that kind of statement...=.=

    ReplyDelete
  107. I read it somewhere. just copy pasted it like someone

    ReplyDelete
  108. Because it's against the fucking law! I am doing my thesis in university and all of my professors keeps reminding me again and again about this problem. If you put another person's work in your work, you have to properly citing him (and in this case, Hyomin needs to credit Zico), otherwise, you'll be considered a thief and violated the intellectual property law.
    Basically, what CCM just did is illegal, and we have all the reason to be bothered by it.

    ReplyDelete
  109. girl you know you need to calm down when you care more about stuff like this than your fave aka the person who's actually INVOLVED.

    ReplyDelete
  110. How do you know that Zico is okay with this? Did you talk to him personally?


    Even if he WAS okay, not crediting people for their work is plagiarism.

    ReplyDelete
  111. How are people not getting that it's a matter of principle?
    It shows humility and thankfulness.


    Though Zico doesn't seem too bothered, doesn't make it wrong on principle.


    Maybe Hyomin forgot, being caught up in the frenzy of her debut. But now is the time to reprint and give credit rather than just say he let me copy it so that's done and dusted.

    ReplyDelete
  112. How am I a troll? Is everyone who don't agree with you considered a troll? Lol

    ReplyDelete
  113. even if zico allright with it, doesnt mean i didnt detest her act..why is it so hard to mention his name..like its only just putting an additional two korean syllables in her album..

    ReplyDelete
  114. her song is totally awful. she should've at least gave some credit to zico.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Doubt it. He wasnt even acknowledged for taking part in her song on paper how would they split royalities with him lol?

    ReplyDelete
  116. lol u like hyomin so much ? yea rite .......

    ReplyDelete
  117. Any man would wish for such a woman
    Any man, as if they're all the same, love pretty women
    Every man thinks about sex at least once
    If only they were thinking about me, would be great if it were me



    Lyrics from her song Nice Body--
    utterly bad song.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Yeah, completely valid source.


    Learn to not take everything posted on the internet as fact. I read somewhere Block B are murderers, just copy and pasted here. Are you capable of understanding why it's wrong when your bias is involved????

    ReplyDelete
  119. By the same token how do you know Zico is not ok with this?

    ReplyDelete
  120. do u see ".." huh~ gonzi copy from someone, who want trouble

  121. if he's not okay sith this, he should speak up and sue them. it's his fault if he chooses to remain silent.

    you were obviously trying to defends you idol by putting tvxq&shinee down. first you said only 1 or 2 members can sings and now suddenly all of tvxq & shinee members can sing ? lol fyi tvxq and most of suju members training on the same years in SM so you can't exactly say suju weren't made the best out of the best. i bet you never followed tvxq & shinee since their earlier days,they were improving through years. and your last sentence sounds like only suju & soshi worked hard to be good singers while shinee&tvxq be like "oh.. we're already great, no need to practice anymore" >.>

  124. It might not be tax evasion, though. My mom is an accountant, and she said that this tends to happen to large corporations on a fairly normal basis, as tax laws are finicky things with far too many details, exceptions, and loopholes.
