Ravi has a stern word for the Chinese musician who plagiarized ‘Beautiful Liar’ + Jellyfish will be taking action
VIXX’s Ravispoke up sternly against the Chinese singer who has been accused of plagiarizing “Beautiful Liar”.
The song “一人饮酒醉” from the Chinese movie ‘父子雄兵’ has been accused of sounding exactly like the VIXX LRsong, which was composed by Ravi. The singer has denied that the song is plagiarized, and the song has been removed from YouTube.
Ravi himself spoke up on the controversy, saying, “When I say ‘I want to become a trend’, I didn’t mean to take my music, copy it, ignore my fans and hurt them. There is a definite difference between taking a song as reference and inspiration, and just copying, and there is also a difference between being confident and being blatant. You can experience your words not matching your actions as a creator, and you can be proud of your work, but I believe that how you say things makes a big difference. It’s very distasteful to see your actions ignoring and hurting the fans who love and support both me and my music. Even when people said there was plagiarism, I tried to think of it well by thinking we influenced someone, since we also gain inspiration from others. I hope everyone who is influenced by our contents think well, and don’t hurt our fans or us.”
