[Interview] 4Minute Hyuna is Happy about Chinese ‘Bubble Pop’ Copycats
4Minute’s Hyuna said she’s actually very happy about the plagiarized Chinese music video of Bubble Pop,
Hyuna recently met with enews at the CJ E&M Center in Sangam-dong, and when she was asked if she saw the plagiarized music video, Hyuna replied, “I only heard about it. But doesn’t that mean they liked my video enough to copy it? It makes me really happy.”
“In the past, there was an incident when 4minute’s Musik was also plagiarized overseas.” She added, “Every time this kind of thing happens, it’s so fascinating. Like our company CEO, Hong Seung Sung, says, it’s like the world is becoming one and an Asian star is becoming a world star.”
“Now that I know that more and more people are paying attention to our music, videos, and performances, I realize that we need to put more effort and care into our activities.” Hyuna said, “I will do my best to show you better performances.”
Recently, a Chinese female singer released a music video for her song No No No, which completely coincided with Hyuna’s music video for Bubble Pop, creating controversy on the internet.
Starting with the lip in the beginning, the music video showed similarities with Bubble Pop in more than one area. The singer and dancers also arrived, wearing white tank tops and blue hot pants as Hyuna did. The only difference was that a car is introduced in Bubble Pop while a helicopter appeared in No No No.
