BTS’s Jungkook has responded to the plagiarism controversy surrounding ‘Seven,’ countering the allegations

On the 22nd, BTS‘s agency, Big Hit Music, stated to Exsports News, “The claims of copyright infringement related to Jungkook‘s ‘Seven’ are not true.”

The statement continued, “‘Seven’ is a collaborative song created by five overseas composers, and it is entirely unrelated to the song from a domestic album 24 years ago that is being claimed by some. We want to emphasize that the unilateral claims of plagiarism based on criteria such as substantial similarity and reference similarity, which are the standards for judging plagiarism, do not apply in any way.”

On the same day, Alpa Economy reported that Jungkook’s ‘Seven’ had directly borrowed significant parts from the song ‘Mask of Time’ by Fin.K.L, released in 2000.

According to the report, Yang Jun-young, the composer of ‘Mask of Time,’ had sent demo materials containing audio sources and score sheets to Hive’s main producer, referred to as Person A.

Meanwhile, Jungkook’s ‘Seven’ has been gaining global popularity, topping the U.S. Billboard charts ‘Global 200’ and ‘Global (excluding the U.S.)’ for four consecutive weeks, and entering the UK Official Charts’ ‘Single Top 100’ for five consecutive weeks.
