    Yeah… they do sound similar!

  2. Meg says:

    Yes, they do sound simliar however “Someday” is sung better and it is the better song between the two.

    Old news but the whore IU and the fugly ass gorilla JYP plagerized

    • winterLei says:

      That comment of yours is quite offensive
      don’t blame IU for singing a song that she didn’t even know had the same tune
      blame the company who has her contract
      its very shameful that you lead a comment that has no thought of a different alternative to why these songs are similar like I said its the company’s fault

      • Cottage Pie says:

        winterLei, you should defend your K-god to the best of your ability and try to absolve her/him of any blame in order for them to remain pure and godly in your S. E. Asian eyes.

        • liz says:

          well, cottage pie, are you denying what winterlei said then? so now you’re saying that iu WROTE the song and totally approved of it before she sang it, with entire knowledge of what the tune sounded like, is that what you’re saying?

          i think winterlei is just trying to make the point that to start meg did some serious and extremely vicious hating, and that iu doesnt choose or write the songs: the company does. so stop being so sarcastic and consider a different viewpoint.

          • Cottage Pie says:

            iu is just a stage monkey. She doesn’t think or chose anything or write twatters, this is all done by the entertainment company. Her true ego is surpressed and replaced by one which the entertainment company find bland and palatable, in order to make her look pure and innocent for the ajhussis.

            Any thought that she has a personal input into this is just ridiculous. Any thought that koreans have an original thought in their big round heads is ridiculous.

          are you stupid or really stupid? oh, you’re stupid. no wait, you’re just an ignorant sob. it doesn’t sound like winterLei is ” trying to defend” IU in any way. read that comment over and think about it. if nothing comes out, then i guess you don’t really have a brain, do you.

    OMG! It does sound similar!!

    I knew something was going on…
    Because when i first heard Someday by IU, it sounded so familiar to a song that i heard a long time ago…

  5. dolphin says:

    both these songs sound similar to a song (english) i heard a few years ago. i can’t just play it in my mind because i’m not familiar with the song.

  6. nikki says:

    They NEVER learn do they…In my opinion, the singers themselves need to take SOMEKIND of responsibility in these kinds of things.

    • Cottage Pie says:

      The singers don’t have any brains, they’re not very intelligent and a bit lazy… so what do you expect from them?

      • liz says:

        ha. clearly you do not have any respect for them, so why are you even on this website? no one wants to hear how stupid you think they are… not everyone is born with brains, and its not their fault, so why do you hate the stupid ones?

        • Cottage Pie says:

          I don’t disrespect them, I just know how the division of labour in the music industry works. These people like iu are just attractive façades to a big organisation which churns out palatable bland pop, there is no reason to respect them as they are just inert.

  7. jUniooOr says:

    yeah… it sounds similar, but I think IU’s version is better and even if the tune sounds alike, I don’t think they must blame IU for that…

  8. Potato says:

    Koreans plagiarising things?!?! Wow.. that always never happens.

  9. marie kilbane says:

    can’t believe they save that old sweatshirt

  10. Lynn says:

    I say let the lawyers have it out. I just want the record player in the picture and not either song. 🙂

  11. blanznist says:

    The company controls the theme, beat and most the song sets for the poppy singers. Should do like Younha and leave that company and write her own stuff and not get into this mess to start wtth. Not her fault though.

  12. I love ? says:

    yea they do sound similar but still they are different so im on IU’s side

  13. j3shika says:

    I can’t say for sure.
    There are little to no changes in the composing of the songs.
    The only difference is that the lyrics are different and the singer.
    HOWEVER, just because the composing of the song has been “copied” does not neccessarily mean it was plagiarized,.
    ” According to the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary, to “plagiarize” means:
    * to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one’s own
    * to use (another’s production) without crediting the source
    * to commit literary theft
    * to present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source.”
    So we all don’t know if it has been plagiarized unless the composer of IU’s song stold without permission and/or did not credit the original. The companies are the ones with the information.

  14. JJ07 says:

    are you kidding me? plagiarism? if the song is old enough, you can use parts of the song without permission. it wouldn’t be considered plagiarism. and if it’s not old enough, im sure that they got permission. don’t worry about it people. IU is still wonderful. come on, anyone have any idea how many tunes from songs are taken and turned into a masterpiece these days. gosh, there’s so many people waiting to criticize everyday.
