Media Muse apologized for copying ''The Closer'' by VIXX.


Following the September 20 airing of their online talent show titled 'Twitch Show', many viewers pointed out one of the songs by the contestant sounded greatly similar to the song by the boy group. 


Contestant's song:


VIXX's "The Closer"



Two days later on September 22, Media Muse admitted the song was ''accidentally'' copied and posted an apology on their official social media account. The apology stated, 



 "Hello, this is Media Muse. The song called 'You'll Be Sorry', which was performed by one of our contestants, is originally a song titled 'The Closer' by VIXX and it was remixed by the participant and presented with a new title.


The contestant notified us of the original track and the remix, however, the incident occurred after our production team confused the title of the original song with the remix. 


We apologize for concerning the fans of VIXX with the producers' mistake. A clear statement and apology will be aired on the live streaming of the 'Twitch Show' on the 22nd at 10 pm.


Once again, we apologize to VIXX and their fans."
