Recently surfacing through YouTube, a video titled 'KH Stars - Ring Ding Dong' has been gaining the interest of netizens. The video reveals a 5-member Cambodian group performing a song very similar to SHINee's Ring Ding Dong. From the song to the choreography, the Cambodian group is seen trying their best to copy SHINee, but one can notice right away that the quality isn't as great as the real version. Netizens have shown their opinions, commenting things such as, "Their group's name is even 'Ring Ding Dong'," "If you're going to copy, at least do it well" and "In 2009, they copied Wonder Girls. Now it's SHINee." Regarding this issue, a representative of SM Entertainment revealed on the 7th:

We have never received any notice from them asking if they can use the song. This is definitely an illegal action. After confirming the details, we will take appropriate legal action.
Furthermore, SHINee in the past on February of 2010 performed in Cambodia. It was their first time visiting the place, and the country's reaction was great. Meanwhile, SHINee recently finished their SM Town's Live Tour 2010 in L.A, and they returned to Korea on the 6th. vs
