Following the reports that YG Entertainment whose artists include G-Dragon and 2NE1 has received notification letters concerning infringement of copyrighted materials from a local copyright holder, Teddy (HongJoon Park), the composer and producer of 2NE1’s “I Don’t Care,” had an exclusive phone interview with AM 7 on the 24th to express his position on the issue.
Whenever there was a dispute over plagiarism, it was usually the label (who has the neighboring copyrights) who released statements to acknowledge or deny the accusation. This is the first time that the composer, the copyright holder, has spoken about his position.
In the interview, Teddy said firmly that he did not plagiarize, responding to the claims that there are similarities between the chorus parts of “I Don’t Care” and “Just Go” from Lionel Richie’s album released last year. He said, “I did listen to the Lionel Richie song following the controversy over “I Don’t Care.” You can’t say it is plagiarism just because the feel, not the melody, of the two songs are similar.” He stressed, “Two people living on the opposite sides of the world could have similar facial features. It is not right to say it is plagiarism just because the feel of the songs are similar. “I feel frustrated that some people are convinced that I used the Richie song as a reference, if not plagiarized,” he added.
Teddy is a member of the hip hop group 1TYM and has been with YG Entertainment for over 10 years, writing and/or arranging most of the hits by YGE artists. He arranged Se7en’s “I Know” (2006) and Big Bang’s “Sunset Glow” (2008) and wrote and arranged TaeYang’s “Look Only at Me” (2008), Um JeongHwa’s “D.I.S.C.O.” (2008), and 2NE1 and Big Bang’s Lollipop (2009).
He says, “When you write a song and if that song is similar to another song then it is the composer’s responsibility to make changes. However, as far as this song (“I Don’t Care”) is concerned, Heaven knows and I know that I have absolutely nothing to be ashamed of so I will not discuss it at length.“ He added, “I have absolutely no interest in either lawsuits or plagiarism accusations.”

We were all informed about KBS2FM boycotting YG Family and now it has been announced the boycotting has come to an end.
The whole controversy was about the matter of G-Dragonbeing a guest on Super Junior’s Kiss the Radio. Supposedly, YG Family did not know G-Dragon was going to appear on the show when KBS2FM announced he was coming on the radio show. When G-Dragon pulled a no-show, both sides were angry about the situation.
KBS2FM was mad at the irresponsibility of G-Dragon and his representatives. They thought it was disrespectful and that they had to talk to YG before figuring things out. YG Family stated that they never confirmed his guest appearance on the show and that something went wrong in the communication.
On a phone call with Newsen on the 25th, YG Entertainment expressed, “It was all a misunderstanding so we personally talked things out.” It has also been confirmed that KBS2FM will now start playing YG Entertainment’s songs again.
Meanwhile, Yang Hyun Suk, president of YG Entertainment, has released his side of the story on the plagiarism accusations against his artistes.
