Taiwanese artist plagiarized iKON's song?

iKON
iKON is mired in a plagiarism controversy again, but this time, the boys are not the ones being accused of plagiarism. Rather, netizens speculate that a rising Taiwanese artist by the name of Du Tian Hao (Calvin Tu) plagiarized "Rhythm Ta," a song on iKON's album 'Welcome Back.'



One netizen shared the full version of Calvin Tu's song and the full MV to "Rhythm Ta" as well as a short clip which combines the songs from both artists.


Calvin Tu's Song:


Rhythm Ta:



When you play the clip which combines the songs, you can hear that though distinguishable, the beat and melody bear close resemblance.


Others who saw the post generally seem to agree that Tu plagiarized the song. They commented,"Lololol I was listening to the Taiwanese version and I can tell which parts of 'Rhythm Ta' were plagiarized. The beat is exactly the same," "The whole song was copied;;," "Is YG not going to say anything about this, are they sleeping, can they hear me," and more.
