[news] 2PM ‘Again & Again’ plagiarism known late?

It has been about 2 weeks since JYP performance group 2PM ended their 2:00PM Time For Change minialbum, netizens have become interested in the title song ‘Again & Again’ all over again.

A netizen posted up the video of singer Envy’s ‘Shawty Dangerous’ and points to the accusation that 2PM’s ‘Again & Again’ is a plagiarism of the song.

It has also been said that Envy’s ‘Shawty Dangerous’ was released in February 2009 while 2PM’s ‘Again & Again’ was released in April 2009.

Some netizens just found the background rhythm similar while others thought it is plagiarism. Fans are also responding on noticeboards discussing this to protect the boys.

    i understand the background music is the same, but how often do artists use the same background beat? and the beat isn't used throughout the whole song, just in the beginning and the end. come on!

    yup, this is plagiarism definitely but regardless of who released first, the two sides clearly needs to settle the issue...who stole whose work? One of them is the thief.

    if you listen carefully only part of the background is the same. like with the other song it repeats the first part of the background yet again & again's background differs...
