Daniel Chen has come under fire after it was revealed that scenes from his work in Taiwanese artist Elaine Ho's music video for "To Love or Not" copied scenes from Korean director Lee Rae Kyung's work. An apology was posted to Elaine Ho's YouTube page after reports and netizens led to a flood of criticism and it reads as follows:
"I'm sorry for the inconvenience caused by this. We referenced a variety of different images while making this music video, and among them, we included scenes from Lee Rae Kyung's 'Palette' music video. We didn't mean to plagiarize. Our ideas and the parts that we thought of looked similar. If there was a scene that offended you, I apologize. I am seeking your forgiveness. Your work is perfect."
