Jolin Tsai, a popular Taiwanese singer, is being accused of plagiarizing Girls’ Generation sub-unit TaeTiSeo‘s “Twinkle” music video scenes.
On November 6th, it was reported by Chinese media outlets that Taiwanese singer Jolin Tsai’s new song “PLAY” has garnered suspicions of plagiarizing TaeTiSeo’s “Twinkle.” In the music video for Jolin Tsai’s “PLAY,” scenes of Jolin Tsai dolled up with hair rolls are said to be similar to the style displayed in “Twinkle.” Additionally, scenes of Jolin Tsai appearing on the red carpet are also said to show resemblance to TaeTiSeo’s “Twinkle” music video scenes.
In response to the suspicions, Jolin Tsai’s agency has officially rejected all the allegations, saying, “There has been no plagiarism. Taiwan is creative enough to not copy such trivial things from Korea.”
