The final annual K-Pop awards ceremony ended, and the Kings and Queens of the GAON Chart K-Pop Music Awards of 2016 have finally been crowned!
The world’s most famous and impressive artists gathered to celebrate the crowning of the hottest acts of 2016. Led by Lee Teuk and MAMAMOO’s Solar, the Jamsil Stadium was packed with performances, awards, and general celebrations for the closing of 2016.
A piece of horrendous news became a hot topic of conversation among K-Pop fans. This news concerns two popular boy band names from two different agencies, namely BTS and BigBang. BTS was lined up as a performer at the 2016 Gaon Chart Awards. Their action is very spectacular and makes fans hysterical. But behind the euphoria, there were protests posted by netizens, especially BigBang fans.
VIP accused BTS of plagiarizing the concept of the stage of T.O.P from BigBang. Before starting the stage action, the giant screen on the stage shows the ‘No Signal’ sign with some additional effects. This intro is at the heart of the issue mentioned by fans and one of YG Entertainment’s production staff.
The reason is that the concept has been used by T.O.P in the 0 to10 BigBang concert in Hong Kong which also recently took place. Significant similarities have led to a number of debates on social media.
Although it has not been proven to have been plagiarized, a number of BTS Army sent an apology for the incident. VIP, the name of BigBang’s fan club, responded cynically to this incident. But some are also patient enough to wait for clarification from both Gaon and Big Hit as the agency overseeing BTS. Next is the video of BTS’ appearance at the 2016 Gaon Chart Awards.
