IU has been addressed with a plagiarism issue with her recent release “The Red Shoes.”
Netizens deemed it extremely similar with Nekta‘s 2009 release “Here’s Us,” and the issue is now extremely hot as “IU The Red Shoes plagiarism?” is high in search term ranking.
However, LOEN Entertainment replied,
“We are releasing our official response after reviewing the opinions of ‘The Red Shoes’ composer Lee Min Soo and other music experts. A portion of the melody for ‘Here’s Us’ and the melody of the second measure [B part] in ‘The Red Shoes’ sound similar but the chord progression of the two songs are totally different.”
“‘The Red Shoes’ uses a B-flat minor scale chord progression with a B-flat minor-bm7-cm7-cm6-f7sus4-f7 but ‘Here’s Us’ uses a dominant scale chord progression of B-flat major. Also, the chorus and first measure [A part], the song’s latter-half bridge part, as well as the overall melody, composition, and instrumental arrangement reveal it to be a totally different song.”
