    I saw something while surfing. And they said that EXO plagiarized Fifth Harmony's Song. At the intro of the song, the beat of clapping.
    Look at this:




    Well, I don't think this is plagiarized, some songs can sound the same by the beat.
    And if they did, EXO are not at fault, it's their producers.


    Electric Kiss is such a bop. This should be their new title track for a Korean Album.

    Personally, I don’t hear it but the beginning has the same elements like the clapping. At most though it might have sampled.

    They sound very similar in parts.

    Very similar claps/snaps, bass, trumpets, rhythms, etc.

    of course they don't sound 100% the same, hopefully SM wouldn't be paying producers who couldn't add, change, rearrange and hide things properly but you can definitely tell Fifth Harmony's song was the base inspiration for huge chunks of the song.

    Well, the beginning is the very very very similar

    not sure how much seconds need to pass to call it "plagiarism", i think more than that, but intro was copied/or bought

    The very beginning with the clapping is the only thing I hear....but I don't think clapping can be considered plagiarizing
