Khmer version of Nobody by Cambodian quartet RHM, originally sung by Korean pop group Wonder Girls. Not only did they copy (without permission) the song, the choreography and outfits are almost identical too…
JYP Entertainment has confirmed that it’s plagiarism and is now seeking legal actions against the copycats. It’s said that there are other pirated versions in Chinese and Thai… but the Khmer version is the only one I found on Youtube.
Most netizens, presumably K-pop and Wonder Girls fans are bashing the Cambodian act. Blogger Brian shared some different thoughts though, that Koreans themselves are questionable for their copycat works over the years.
Set the legal issue aside, I actually giggled watching the video… not sure why.
