J.Y. Park and Kim Shin Il to continue their legal battle over plagiarism controversy in January

allkpop



J.Y. Park will be returning to court again next month to continue with his appeal against the original ruling of the plagiarism case.

He had previously lost the case as the judge ruled that J.Y. Park's 'Dream High' OST, "Someday"had plagiarizedKim Shin Il's work,Ash's "To My Man", a song composed back in 2005. J.Y Park appealed the sentence, stating that the measures in question could be found in his previous works as well from before 2005.

A hearing was held on December 12th again, without the presence of J.Y. Park, where both sides once again argued their cases. J.Y. Park's side argued, "Excluding the chorus, it's a completely different song. This melody and harmony was used by J.Y. Park first in other songs. The repeating of the chorus can also be seen in song such as 'Nobody', 'One Candle', and 'Hands Up'."

Kim Shin Il argued back, "His other hit songs may be plagiarized as well. Upon research, I found 6 songs including g.o.d's hit song "Mother" that were originally under J.Y. Park's name have been changed so that they no longer list his name as the composer."

The argument went back and forth for an hour until the judge called for the session to come to a close and decided to resume next month on the 23rd.
