Well chop off my legs and call me “Shorty”, because it looks like the insane legion of K-pop fans have found yet another issue to rant about.
According to reports, an obscure video recently came to the attention of K-pop fans. The song, called “El Patron“, is a clear cover of T.O.P‘s “Turn It Up“.
Check out the train wreck below:
Yeah, okay, that shit sounds the exact fucking same as T.O.P oppar’s song. But, let’s get a few things straight here first:
1. This “artist”, who goes by the name Alabama, seems to be a nobody in the music world. This is an obscure video that has just been brought to light, and all of a sudden this guy is getting an army of K-Nazis knocking on his door and shitting on his front porch.
2. Sure, it’s plagiarism, but who the fuck really cares? This guy is not going to make any profit off this song, because in all honesty, the original song fucking sucked balls in the first place.
3. The comments about “true artists” coming up with their own original material is just rich, considering just a few years back this failed attempt came into being:
4. Briefly running through the comments section of the video reveals the ugly face of the K-pop fandom once again. Insults, derogatory put-downs, and racial slurs abound; they are basically treating this guy like dirt. And for what? Doing a shitty cover of an already shitty song.
I’m sure oppar would be proud of you guys.
