TVXQ, “It’s Neither A Remake Nor Plagiarism”
October 4th, 2008



Dong Bang Shin Gi’s new song, ‘Spell (MIROTIC)’ was criticized because of plagiarism.

When Dong Bang Shin Gi’s new album with the title track, ‘Spell (MIROTIC) was released, netizens simultaneously began identifying the similarities between their title track and German pop singer, Sarah Conner’s song, “Under My Skin.” Various arguments erupted with netizen’s stating, “This is plagiarism,” and “This is a remake.”

Dong Bang Shin Gi’s company spoke to the press on the 30th to clear this issue. “The composing team of Remee/Troelsen who composed BoA’s American debut song, ‘Eat You Up’ gave Dong Bang Shin Gi and Sarah Conner the same song” and that, “While Europe receives the rights for Sarah Connor’s version, Asia get’s Dong Bang Shin Gi.”

Furthermore, “when we first received the song, we knew that they were the same,” stated a spokesperson. “Sarah Conner made her version public last month but Dong Bang Shin Gi had finished recording in June.”

DBSK already has talent why would they need to copy other people.
If people think they are copying they must be crazy.

DBSK finished recording in June so those netizens who accused DBSK of plagiarism should shut their mouths up. It is not DBSK's fault. It is the composing team's fault.

I'm so mad at the people who criticized DBSK!

I watched the "euro" version. It's alright. I'm not saying that because I'm a DBSK fan. Her voice didn't seem to fit the song well, the beat was a little muffled by her voice, and well her little "talk" part of the song really was weird. It was almost pornographic.. XD Not my thing. Maybe if it was done by someone else like um.. Christina Aguilera, who's voice is strong enough to convey the the song's meaning... Even Pink would have been better.. *lol*

*rambles on*... DBSK korean version was better executed.

I cannot believe they are talking about plagiarism!!!
Clearly, after seeing the video (It wasn't even near TVXQ's awesome video...it sucked!!! And there are portions that I think should be censored... ), the lyrics didn't match anyway....
The only thing similar would be the beat and tune of the music but I've heard a lot of songs with similar tunes.
TVXQ's Mirotic is undoubtedly better. I'm not saying this because I'm a fan but because it wasn't really great compared to theirs.
TVXQ fans should not get worked up about it especially over something that's obviously worthless.....

PS. If it were a remake, which it isn't, then it's an amazing one.

TVXQ's verison is actually more pleasing to the ear in my opinion. Even though bother versions have the same basic beat and both make use of Reverse Beat even though technically they are the same song; TVXQ's version is more fuller and rounded almost. Plus the vocal arrangement fits better with the instrumental arrangement, verse, chorus, bridge, etc...

I'm not saying I don't like Sarah Connor's version though, I just prefer TVXQ's version. Musically it makes more sense to me.


And the video is better. *cough*
