A group called M4 is under fire from netizens for reportedly stealing iKON's B.I's arrangement to popular Disney song "Let It Go."

The group was on an MTV show, and they sang a version of "Let It Go," rearranged by B.I. and originally performed for Mnet's survival program 'Mix & Match.' 


Though the group's performance of this version aired about a month ago, netizens took notice more recently. Under the video clip of the performance, they wrote: 


"Hanbin work hard remake this song! Why don't give credit to Hanbin? [sic]


"A complete plagiarism of the Mix&match version, completely shameless." 


"B.I work so so hard for this song!!! give credit to him !!" 

"What the hell? this was just a copy and paste. Woah I'm angry rn. Think about how hard Hanbin worked to produce the song and this trio comes up and steals it. shame on you. [sic]" 


"i came here thinking they'd only use the same music arrangement but everything is exactly the same even the adlibs??wow i see zero creativity here the fact that the only thing they did was change the lyrics to chinese, there isn't even a bit of originality in it, not even the way they sing it. all the hard work hanbin did for this song can't even deserve a credit here? [sic]" and many more comments which expressed similar sentiments.

    NOT COOL~ it's nice to perform it or a had cover but make sure to credit. It would be better to credit the owner. Even a small caption will do.
