Following the group's plagiarism controversy, B.Heart will continue to promote their new song regardless of the issue.

A music professional stated, "Apart from the fact that the two songs are similar, the way that the song is executed vocally draws a lot of similar elements."

B.Heart's agency reported, "To say that it is plagiarism is a stretch, in that, the song doesn't even use the same 8-beat.  We will resume all promotion activities as planned."

I feel bad. Three of the members came from RoadBoyz, a rookie group that just disbanded. I hope they do continue to promote and find room for them to shine.

I don't see whats wrong with people doing their job. They need as much money as we do. Did people like VAV stop promoting? No, they kept on going. We need to remember that these idols work as hard as any other idols we've witnessed.

Of course they can still continue promoting, beast don't take this legally and they don't have that 8 bit as it said. But the problem is the composer and the company never apologizes directly to the original composer for dragging them into this mess. And that composer hv been told beforehand, he should revise the song first if he has respect for fellow composers. I pity the boys so much, beast is a sunbae. It will be hard on them to great beast backstage because of this. The company should handle this wisely, for a better image for their singers. But they choose different way.

Being a b2uty this whole situation is a great disgraceful for us fans as well as our boys. I have no hate for the rookie boys because I can understand they are bound to do whatever their company tells. But whatever the company declared by saying that calling the song a plagiarism is a stretch and the song doesn't even use the same 8-beat and will continue to promote 😐 man that's just heights of lies and disrespect . They are takin it so lightly when it means a huge thing for our boys and their fans. It takes lots of hard work to compose one song and arrange music and even if they say they are inspired by them then why don't you just admit it. Not only this shows unprofessionism you are risking the rookies career at sake. I really wish good luck and best wishes for the rookies and hope their company get some courage to admit their mistake and make their own creation for boys rather than being inspired by them and copying their music.

They're rookies. They're being told what to do. I'm not gonna fault them but rather their company.

I just feel bad for the group because I don't think they asked for this. They weren't the ones who composed the song nor created the choreography. It's the people behind them that thought being "inspired" by b2st would have been a good idea (clearly not), but it's their names and careers that are getting ruined. Pitiful. :c

"To say that it is plagiarism is a stretch, in that, the song doesn't even use the same 8-beat.  We will resume all promotion activities as planned."Yeah it's not a plagiarism alright, the composer (if he even can be called one) just got a LOT of inspiration from Beast.And guess what? the choreographer also coincidentally got a LOT of inspiration from Beast.Not to mention the stylist also got a LOT of inspiration from Beast stylist as well.

Tenshio Tuesday, January 31, 2017

Maybe it's better to say that B.Heart is inspired by Beast or smth in that content rather than denying things, it just make the company looks unprofessional and there will be a backlash to the new boygroup.

Tenshio Tuesday, January 31, 2017

It's better if a group found their own color, their own music. Sure, everyone starts by referencing to someone but not to this extent. If going by the company statement then I can be a composer too, using their instrumentals, mixing them up, adding similar sounds, remaking the sounds using similar notes or maybe just cut up some parts and made the beat slower.

Tenshio Tuesday, January 31, 2017

What would they feel if someday someone or some group did this to them? Especially if the said group just started new. I bet they will be furious or at least disappointed, what will their fans feel? Happy that someone try to copy their group when they just got out with a fresh start?

Tenshio Tuesday, January 31, 2017

Personally I don't expect or demand B.Heart to stop promoting, I just wish the company will start admitting and graciously stop being a pompous company. Even the manager mocked Beast by posting B.Heart and Dojoon picture at his personal social media, I don't think that's a good move from the company staff. Well-- I believe in karma and we don't know the whole story since the only one who knows are themselves. We'll see how it turns out in the future. I wish all the best for B.Heart though, I love following new groups, but I'm not sure I can enjoy this music.

You're absolutely right. I just feel so awful for the boys, because this could (and potentially already has) ruin their careers, and will most likely follow them forever. They had no say in any of the choices, and took no part in developing the music, choreography or the look for this concept. But they of course will take the brunt of the hatred, it's a shame.
