Poong Entertainment spoke up about the plagiarism accusation concerning rookie group B.HEART and B2ST.
Many are claming B.HEART's debut track "Realistic" is too similar to B2ST's "Ribbon". In response, Poong Entertainment stated, "It's unfortunate how B.HEART's debut song that has been carefully prepared over a long time is involved in a plagiarism controversy. 'Realistic' is not plagiarized. After carefully examining 'Realistic' and B2ST's 'Ribbon', it's true that they may sound similar depending on the person listening, but it's difficult to define it as plagiarism."
The label continued, "It's not plagiarized, but we apologize for causing public concern and the fans of B.HEART. Please refrain from spreading baseless rumors and assumptions."
Listen to the two tracks. What do you think of the plagiarism accusation?
