Mnet's upcoming variety show 'Idol School' has been accused of plagiarism.


The variety show recently released the MV to "Cause You're Pretty", the theme song for the variety show. However, viewers noticed that the MV was very similar to a Japanese CF. The MV and CF share identical scenes such as water coming out from the roof, the position of the girls, as well as the angle of the shots.

Mnet denied the accusations, saying, "The program is based on a 'school', and space where many students can dance in a school is limited to the gymnasium, classroom, hallway, rooftop, etc. The water being sprayed during the dance scenes is a method already used in many movies. The similarities between the two contents are because of the limitations of the space as well as because of filming method that is widely used. It just looks similar because of the necessary limitations."


What do you think of Mnet's statement?

Side shot-0:45, dancing open space shot-0:56 onwards, not exactly a rooftop but many people at upstairs shot - 2:18 onwards

Honestly the concept and angles of the video are really basic, I doubt they plagiarized

It seems that everyone has nothing to do with their super pathetic lives.  The show is definitely 100% original and that's just it.  So therefore, those people really need to take a got damn chill pill and at least give the show a chance to grow on them.

Everyone seems shocked when I said this show is so japanes-ish, just see that now. The last trend in Korea, is to see young girls in uniforms school competing between them. I don't know if Mnet recruited a japanese producer but Produce 101 and now this show : they really want to have their korean version of Morning Musume of AKB99999. Kind of weird because koreans always mocked this kind of japanese shows.

It's always been like that. Boy groups were copied from j-pop and went in Kpop all the way to cpop. Even most Korean dramas are remakes of Japanese drama

Honestly the Japanese CF looks like excerpts from a horror movie. The colours used........ it looks unhappy ahhaha
