*Sorry, I know this does not directly involve Rain, but it is follow up to what has been happening with the plagiarism of MBLAQ’s song that we posted not too long ago:
Ecuadorian singer Andrea Bucaram has been under fire from A-Plus‘ around the world for her copy of MBLAQ’s song, “Oh Yeah“. She’s devoted the better part of her tweets from the past 24 hours responding to fan criticisms, though much of it seems to have been edited.
Andrea’s defended herself by saying that “It’s obvious that it’s the same song. It’s a cover. I never said that the song is mine. I have not profited from this.”
On her personal Facebook page, she posted “I love Koreans and I am also a fan of MBLAQ and want them to come to Ecuador.”
Shortly after, she posted that, “You only get one life, enjoy it. Chinese Ecuadorians are throwing bombs at me. I love the world, my friends, and those that want to hurt me, I wish you the best, my happiness is mine.”
The issue has gained so much attention that a media outlet covered the controversy and interviewed the singer. Bucaram spoke out on the issue, saying that she was a fan of MBLAQ. But MBLAQ fans were quick to point out that they felt her fan admission was false after they saw her make a grave error in an interview.
The singer said that she didn’t know “MBLAQ had existed for 6 years and that Korean people spoke English as their first language.”
