Usually copying is a form of flattery, but in this case, it is just down right plagiarism. Netizens are in a complete uproar over this Chinese broadcasting program for taking this hit Korean TV programs concept as their own.

'Show Me The Money,' a popular Hip Hop and Rap survival and elimination program, has been gaining mass attention since its release back in 2012. The show is notorious for having wild stage sets and rap battles, showcasing some rough and tough rappers as well as featuring some familiar faces, such as Jay Park and San E, exclusively as judges. The show is already in its sixth season.

Now, netizens are angered over the shocking similarities that can be found in this new Chinese program called 'The Rap of China.' A netizen posted side by side photo comparison of the two programs and just how they mimic each other so perfectly.

Fans felt angered and upset leaving comments such as, "Crazy Chinese.. All they would ever do is copy", "Having 10 billion in population is useless when the ethnicity itself is savage", "They should be embarrassed", "Nation of fakes", "They wouldn't have anything to watch on TV if it weren't for Korea", "Seriously, stop copying." Pretty harsh, huh? The Chinese received even more hate after they were caught imitating another popular program as well.

Although 'Youn's Kitchen' aired a while back and only had one season, it didn't stop fans from becoming angry by their blatant plagiarism. The only reason some fans said they enjoyed watching 'The Rap of China' is simply because it features EXO's Kris as a judge. What do you think of China's constant concept stealing? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
