MAMAMOO's 'Gogobebe' accused of plagiarizing Marshmello & Anne Marie's 'Friends'

AKP STAFF

MAMAMOO's producers are facing plagiarism accusations again.

The issue surrounds MAMAMOO's latest track "Gogobebe." Netizens are claiming the song sounds extremely similar to "Friends" by Marshmello & Anne Marie

"Friends" released on February 16, 2018

 "Gogobebe" released on March 14, 2019

It's claimed they also plagiarized the MV, from the party scenes to the smiley face mascot.

"Gogobebe" is also accused of plagiarizing a part of Kim Gun Mo's "Jjang-ga."

This is not the first time MAMAMOO's producers came under fire for plagiarism. In the past, "1cm" was accused of copying "Under the Influence" by Eminem, "You're the Best" was accused of copying "Happy Boys and Girls" by Aqua, and "Starry Night" was accused of copying "Prayer In C" by Lilly Wood & The Prick and Robin Schulz

The producer behind the controversial songs is Kim Do Hoon, also the head representative of RBW Entertainment.


Netizens commented"They sound so similar," "I immediately thought of 'Jjang-ga' when I heard 'Gogobebe.' I thought it was sampling," "This is so plagiarism."

I just looked up the credits for the album, Kim Gun Mo is actually listed as one of the composers so it would appear that he is aware of the use of his song. I can't speak for the other though since I don't listen to Marshmello.
