“Potential Plagiarism Lawsuit Looms for Jungkook’s ‘Seven’ Despite Big Hit Music’s Denial”

On August 23 KST, a media outlet reported that Big Hit Music, the agency behind BTS, may be facing a plagiarism lawsuit over alleged similarities between Jungkook’s solo single “Seven” and Fin.K.L’s “Time of Mask”. The accusations came to light on August 22 KST, with producer Yang Joon Young of Fin.K.L personally raising the allegations. However, it was revealed that Yang Joon Young initially did not want to publicize the issue, and had forwarded a file comparing the music scores to HYBE Labels in early August for discussion. After a delay due to chairman Bang Si Hyuk’s overseas business trip, Yang Joon Young did not receive any updates for over two weeks. An image of part of the file was also revealed, showing the adjusted tempo and key of both songs to compare the note sequence.

After the plagiarism allegations surrounding Jungkook’s “Seven” made headlines on August 22 KST, HYBE Labels’ risk management department took swift action. Only then were producer Yang Joon Young’s files examined by HYBE’s legal team. Later that day, Big Hit Music released a statement denying the accusations, but a legal firm criticized the language used, suggesting it may be more favorable in a lawsuit situation than resolving the issue and prioritizing the entertainer’s image. Some in the industry believe there is still a chance for Yang Joon Young to pursue legal action. More updates to come.
