Koyote’s Kim Jong Min was Happy about ‘Happy Mode’ Plagiarism Suspicions

Koyote’s Kim Jong Min was Happy about ‘Happy Mode’ Plagiarism Suspicions

Despite suspicions of plagiarism for one of his songs, Kim Jong Min stayed optimistic, saying that the issue actually made him happy.

In a recent recording of MBC’s Radio Star, Kim Gu Ra brought up Meghan Trainor’s All About That Bass, which was under the suspicion of plagiarism with Koyote’s Happy Mode.

Kim Jong Min, who was a guest on the show, put a smile on his face and said, “I liked it because I thought that someone abroad could hear my voice and find a use for it.”

The guests and panel then listened to the comparison of the two songs, to which Shin Bong Sun made everyone laugh by saying, “The vocals [in All About That Bass] are more refreshing.”

The episode will air on September 17.
