B.A.P Copied Shinhwa? Take A Listen And Decide For Yourself
By Staff Writer | August 10, 2013 02:01 PM EDT
It seems like each time a new song is released it is painstakingly ripped apart and challenged as being unoriginal or worse, plagiarized.
Music has been around since long before any of us were around, so it is only natural that as time goes on, there will be some similarities in terms of beats, melodies, or chord progressions.

What's more, an older track, "No Mercy" has been brought back out and is also said to have copied the melody from Shinhwa's "Young Gunz."
Take a listen and decide for yourself.
A few additional points about the controversy.
B.A.P's "Badman" was composed and produced by Kang Jiwon and Kim Kibum. Kang Jiwon also worked with Shinhwa between 2006 and 2009.
Whether the similarities were intentional or not, fans on both sides of the argument, have been very civil (for the most part) and now that concerns have been raised, many are waiting for an official response from both TS Entertainment and the Shinhwa Company regarding the controversy.
