Indonesian 'You Who Came From The Stars' revealed to be plagiarism, not a remake


It has come to light that new Indonesian drama 'Kau Yang Berasal Dari Bintang' is not a remake of the Korean hit series, 'You Who Came From The Stars,' but rather a plagiarized version. 

A rep from SBS Contents Hub revealed to media outlet TV Report, "The drama was created without the obtainment of legal publication rights.  You could view it as plagiarism."

The Indonesian television network RCTI aired a drama entitled 'Kau Yang Berasal Dari Bintang,' which was very similar to SBS's 'You Who Came From The Stars,' grabbing a lot of attention.  According to a Chinese media outlet, the drama aired its first episode on April 28 and followed practically the exact set up and storyline of the Korean drama.

The SBS Contents Hub rep said, "While we were in the process of discussing the sale of legal publication rights with another Indonesian enterprise, this drama came out.  We are in the midst of finding what course of action to take."
