Junsu’s song “I’m In Love” in his 2nd solo album was remade by Lee Seungchul for the OST of the SBS drama, “You’re All Surrounded”. On the 29th of May, this permitted remake was featured on the drama for the first time and released as a single on the 5th of June, however there had been no mention of how it was actually a remake of Junsu’s original song, “I’m In Love”. Thus, Junsu’s fans started questioning why Junsu had not been properly credited for the song, which then soon turned in to a heated argument on whether or not it was intentionally not credited.

"I’m sure you are all very exhausted due to the issue with Junsu’s fans about the remake. It has always been a conventional practice to not include the original artist’s name on a remake song. There’s no respect for an artist at the age of 50 who has been in the industry for 30 years."

Furthermore, Lee Seungchul also mentioned this issue on a radio program, in which Junsu’s fans were very unhappy with Lee Seungchul’s attitude on approaching the issue. Thus, Lee Seungchul further tweeted “To those who are angered by what I said with a smile. Who are you actually agitated for? It’s like you’re trying to stop me and Junsu from ever meeting again.”
