EXO “Ko Ko Bop” accused of plagiarizing David Guetta “Light My Body Up”, producer denies

In the latest round of K-pop plagiarism accusations, netizens are claiming EXO‘s “Ko Ko Bop” sounds like David Guetta‘s “Light My Body Up” because … sure.

Uh, okay.

I’ve written over and over about how these accusations are usually bunk because people have no idea what they’re talking about and I’ve generally been right taking that path, so I don’t see any reason to stray from that with this accusation either.

Furthering my belief in that is a clarification made by the producer of “Ko Ko Bop”, Paul Thompson, in which he says that this song was made long before the other was even released.

Sounds like a reasonable explanation to me, especially since this doesn’t seem much like plagiarism anyway.
