Taiwanese pop star Show Luo has been accused of plagiarising K-pop star G-Dragon in his new music video, “Let Go”.
As reported on Mingpao News, the new music video, directed by Muh Chen and released on 26 October, has an anti-bullying theme that Show hope can be used as an encouragement to victims of bullying.
However, several Netizens who watched the MV was quick to accuse him of copying the Big Bang rapper’s own MVs, mainly from “Coup D’Etat” and “Heart Breaker”.
Among some, Show allegedly copied a scene from “Coup D’Etat” where he was standing in front of the firing squad, as well as a piece set consisting of a wall filled with white masks. His dancers also wore a white mask similar to GD’s “Heart Breaker” song.
Although Show’s fans dismissed the similarities as mere nitpicking on the haters’ side, this isn’t the first time his MV director Muh Chen was accused of plagiarism.
Previously he was accused of copying TaeTiSeo’s “Twinkle” video for Jolin Tsai’s “Play”, although the similarities were only minor.
Show’s comeback album, “Reality Show”, will be released on 20 November.
