“Infinity Challenge” has officially taken “I Got C” off the digital shelves after much scrutiny about if Primary from Team Geumary plagiarized dutch recording artist Caro Emerald‘s “You Don’t Love Me”. “I Got C” has found success on the digital music charts since its release but later struggled to pull itself out of the mud after the accusations.
An official message has been released by “Infinity Challenge” producer on the shows official website on November 13th saying, “Hello, this is ‘Infinity Challenge.’ I apologize for causing the viewers worry over the controversy that team Geumary (Park Myung Soo and Primary) has been swept in because of the song they performed at MBC ‘Infinity Challenge – 2013 Freedom Road Music Festival‘ on November 2. This year’s music show was the fourth festival ‘Infinity Challenge’ has held, and all of the cast members and musicians have worked in teams to produce songs through a chaotic and stressful process, having the theme ‘Music is not war. Music is joy.’ in mind and trying to express it.”
He also said, “However, after the broadcast we faced a problem we had not expected, and even though we are listening to both parties’ opinions hoping solve the situation carefully, in the end we have not been able to offer ‘joy’ to our viewers. Thus, until this problem will be settled, we have discussed with Amoeba Culture (Primary) and reached the decision that we will stop the distribution of ‘I Got C’ through digital music stores. From now, we will try our best to become ‘Infinity Challenge’ that responds to any problems in a more rapid and mature matter. Thank you.”
