Recently, fans noticed that the tracks "Dhamki Marr" and "Baby Kanipinchav" used for 'Kannayya' sound greatly similar, in fact, almost exactly the same as EXO's "Growl" and "Baby Don't Cry," respectively. Many grew furious at the plagiarism and demanded SM to take action.


On February 17, a rep of SM Entertainment spoke up about the issue and stated, "The controversial songs by the Indian artist are clearly plagiarized. We're planning to take action after discussion with the composer and the publisher."


Stay tuned for updates.

Man, I feel bad for the Indian Exo-Ls. This is so disappointing that KPOP in general is being plagiarized a lot and no one is confessing to it. Just be truthful and don't steal other's hard work. How long did it take for you to decide to use their work and say it was yours?

What's done is done. Either way, SM should seize the opportunity to strike a deal with that film company for their artists to promote in India.

navdeepak is right u know, india is a very very big country. they are two differrent film industries. the ones who plagiarized are located in southern india- making movies in a regional limited language and audience, they are not bollywood. although that is no excuse for the wrongdoing some people from india did. sadface
