VIXX's Ravi spoke up sternly against the Chinese singer who has been accused of plagiarizing "Beautiful Liar".


The song "一人饮酒醉" from the Chinese movie '父子雄兵' has been accused of sounding exactly like the VIXX LR song, which was composed by Ravi. The singer has denied that the song is plagiarized, and the song has been removed from YouTube.


Ravi himself spoke up on the controversy, saying, "When I say 'I want to become a trend', I didn't mean to take my music, copy it, ignore my fans and hurt them. There is a definite difference between taking a song as reference and inspiration, and just copying, and there is also a difference between being confident and being blatant. You can experience your words not matching your actions as a creator, and you can be proud of your work, but I believe that how you say things makes a big difference. It's very distasteful to see your actions ignoring and hurting the fans who love and support both me and my music. Even when people said there was plagiarism, I tried to think of it well by thinking we influenced someone, since we also gain inspiration from others. I hope everyone who is influenced by our contents think well, and don't hurt our fans or us."

Jellyfish Entertainment said, "We are very disappointed to see that a creation by our label artist and composer has been used without permission. We have requested a check for plagiarism to the Korea Copyright Commission. We will be taking strong legal action according to the results."


Check out the comparison below. Do you think they're similar/?

Whoever plagiarizes should be banned from appearing on Chinese TV shows. Shame on you MC Tianyou and Dong Chengpeng! It's because of you, creative Chinese artists do not get the chance to be recognized!

JUSTICE FOR VIXX! HONESTLY IM DONE! This group is so original and talented and their fanbase is nice, Many other kpop groups are friends with them but others love to steal their art. WHY !

Nobody is gonna talk about how Vixx stole their name from the cough syrup? Half the kpop ballads I hear sound like Ravi's song so is he plagiarizing those songs? Like Daesung said nothings a 100% original.

And that composer (or should I say, plagiarizer) and his wife even fought back. This is what the wife said (photo). My God, her neurons may have been degenerating. Of course, Starlights would lash out at her husband (and her, maybe, idk). VIXX has been plagiarized almost every month. January - The Voice Turkey contestant using the instrumental of Dynamite, February - TVBOYS copying VIXX's entire performance and not giving credit, March - Jung Wonchul (from Produce 101) copying N's performance without credit, April - Reda Mandor plagiarizing Dynamite, and now this. VIXX and Starlights have all the right to call out these plagiarizers. But what's funny (and infuriating) is that this couple believe they're right, they could've just admitted their fault and issued an apology (and take down the song bc it's rubbish lol sorry not sorry but let's pretend you didn't read that) like that Produce 101 contestant.

Yaas! When I read abt the 1st year anniv I was like, "who tf cares and what does it have to do with the issue?" lmao Sorry, I don't know the singer's name, but the composer's name is Liu Xin (based on what I've read)
