On July 28, about two months after the release of "Mistake", Irish indie rock band Two Door Cinema Club posted to Twitter referring to the song. Two Door Cinema Club wrote, "Nice to see we've inspired someone," adding a link to Drug Restaurant's track.

Netizens are now comparing "Mistake" to the Irish band's songs "Someday" and "What You Know" as there are similar guitar riffs in the tracks. Drug Restaurant have denied that they've plagiarized Two Door Cinema Club, however, stating, "The overall planning and vision of the song was by member Jo Dae Min, who really respects Two Door Cinema Club. The song is influenced by them, but it's not plagiarism."

What do you think?

    Not just these but some other songs like OMG got some rifts that sounded like Good Charlotte's Like It's Her Birthday (jap edition ft. Miyavi). And JJY's Teenager beginning was exactly the same as M-flo and Dragon Ash's Way U Move. Not sure if M-flo's one was the original or they sampled from other song. But uh, to what extend is the similarity considered plagiarism, that's the question.

    I'm a JJY fan but was just wondering is it just me or others find these similar too, that's all.

    When I herd the song I automatically thought about jpop. If they are plagiarizing then heck lets go after the jrock industry. Megamasso is the first group some of the rifts remind me of. September love being top. Had this discussion on youtube and the list is crazy so chalk it up to style they went with.
