U-Kiss’ new song 'What Did You Say?' plagiarized from SHINee?

U-Kiss’ follow-up song 'What Did You Say?' plagiarized SHINee’s 'Amigo'?

During an episode of God of Cookery Expedition that aired on the 9th, U-Kiss members Soo Hyun and Ki Seop briefly performed a preview of What from their latest album Only One.

The track, which is to be used for the boy band’s follow-up promotions, maintains the same trend of an electronic sound and synthesized vocals from their previous songs, Man Man Ha Ni and Bingeul Bingeul.

As they unveiled the highlight of their choreography on the show for the first time, comedian Kim Shin Young teased that the song bore a resemblance to SHINee’s Amigo. The U-Kiss duo weren’t very amused with Kim Shin Young’s snide remark, but quickly laughed it off as Soo Hyun jokingly declared, “U-Kiss fans, let’s defeat Kim Shin Young!”

Although Kim Shin Young was only messing around, let’s hope U-Kiss doesn’t receive too much criticism from plagiarism accusations. They haven’t even begun promoting What yet.

Apart from the three words, What and Amigo sound nothing alike.
