An exclusive investigation by Ten Asia on the plagiarism claims involving Jungkook’s “Seven” highlighted the fact that producer Yang Joon Young of Fin.K.L’s “Time of Mask” had personally brought up the charges. The “same scale sequence” was the primary justification given by Yang Joon Young for the allegations of plagiarism.

According to a recent Ten Asia report, Yang Joon Young initially had no desire for the situation to be exposed by the media. In reality, it’s said that Yang Joon Young sent a file comparing the musical scores for “Seven” and “Time of Mask” to a producer at HYBE Labels around the beginning of August in an effort to allay the rumors.

Yang Joon Young did not hear from HYBE Labels again for more than two weeks following the temporary response that “there is a delay in addressing the matter due to chairman Bang Si Hyuk’s overseas business trip”.

Ten Asia has published a photograph of what is thought to be part of the file that Yang Joon Young provided to HYBE Labels below. Both songs’  tempo and key were changed to compare the note progression of the two melodies used in “Seven” and “Time of Mask”.

But as soon as the plagiarism scandal hit the press on August 22 KST, HYBE Labels’ risk management division came to action. According to Ten Asia, it wasn’t until this day that HYBE’s legal team reviewed and examined producer Yang Joon Young’s files.

Big Hit Music issued a formal press statement that denied the claims of plagiarism against Jungkook’s “Seven” in the late afternoon of August 22 KST.

One law firm commented on Big Hit Music’s statement, saying, “Rather than delivering a political decision on the issue, the statement utilized language that seems favorable in the events of a lawsuit.”

The legal firm added that The possibility that HYBE Labels missed its golden opportunity to arrive at a resolution which would have prioritized the image of the entertainer in this case cannot be ruled out at this time.

Some industry affiliates are of the opinion that the window for producer Yang Joon Young to pursue a lawsuit remains open.
