The Jungkook’s ‘Seven’ Plagiarism Controversy, Big Hit Responds, Billboard Triumph

On August 22, plagiarism accusations regarding Jungkook’s solo single ‘Seven’ came to light as a result of an exclusive report by Ten Asia, drawing attention to the fact that Producer Yang Joon Yang of Fin.K.L’s “Time Of Mask” had personally raised the allegations. He cited “Same Scale Sequence” as his main reason for the plagiarism claims. Yang Joon Yang had requested an evaluation of suspected similarities between their song and Jungkook’s ‘Seven’.

In response to the allegations, BTS’s agency, Big Hit Entertainment, denies allegations that Jungkook’s “Seven” is a song made by five overseas composers in collaboration. They continued by saying, “We would like to inform you that it is only a one-sided claim that does not meet any criteria, such as creation that is completely unrelated to the songs on the domestic album from 24 years ago, and practical similarity or legality, which are the standards for judging plagiarism.”

On the other hand, Jungkook’s “Seven” continues to perform strongly, topping both the U.S. Billboard Global 200 chart and the U.S. Exclusion chart. According to Billboard Social on the 21st, Jungkook’s “Seven” topped the “Global 200” and “Global” charts as of the 26th.

This is the second time this year that a song has topped the Billboard chart for five consecutive weeks since “Flowers” by singer Miley Cyrus. Following Jungkook, BTS’s “V” is also drawing attention as their pre-released songs “Love Me Again” and “Rainy Days” ranked sixth and eighth, respectively, ahead of the release of their solo album.
