STAYC Is The Highest-Selling Girl Group Debut Act But Is Under Fire For Plagiarism Suspicions
With 4,300 sales, STAYC has become the highest-selling Girl Group to debut this year.
The netizens are loving their debut with "So Bad," and the six-member girl group under High Up Entertainment is the only rookie to debut on Genie real-time chart as well as Bugs real-time top 20.
However, the netizens have noticed that the set for STAYC's music video was identical to Miley Cyrus' music video for "Midnight Sky."
They pointed out that the disco ball, plants, sparkling balloons in the group's mv are almost the same as Miley's set. Also, the netizens claim that the vibe and overall theme are similar between the two music videos.
They are pointing the blame towards the video producer whom they found out was Ringend Films. The said video producer was also accused of plagiarism on their previous works such as (G)I-dle's "Oh My God" music video.
STAYC is under High Up Entertainment, which is a subsidiary of CJ E&M and is produced by famous Black Eyed Pilsung duo who were the brains behind Twice's Hits such as "Likey", "Cheer up", and "Fancy."
