[SPECIAL] SS501 song producer “Steven Lee” answered MarinaStory’s Question about SS501 plagiarism rumors![DO NOT POSTED ELSEWHERE]

Posted: June 1, 2010 in album, info, Music

One of TripleS informed me, about how SS501 new songs “Love Ya” sounds similar to “Let me love you” sung by Michael Angelo. And, SS501 song “Let me be the one” sounds similar to Andre Mieux’s song with the same title.

I heard the audio of those 2 persons mentioned on YT and yes  it is the same, the different is the songs are in English.

As I checked on Daum (since I have not received my CD from Korea) I see Steven Lee’s name in both songs.

So, I contact Mr.Steven Lee  and asked him directly about the truth behind all of this.

Being kind, this talented producer spare his tight schedule to reply my 2 e-mails.

Read his replies and my 2nd e-mail to him under the cut! [Click the image for clearer view]

His 1st reply below!

Then my 2nd mail to him is as below !

Mr.Lee 2nd reply!

So, there’s no such thing as plagiarism by our boys ^^ The writer/producer/composer of the 2 songs has confirmed that ^^ SS501 fighting!

Special thanks for Mr.Steven Lee for answering these questions!

    SS501 LOVE YA!

    • Imuyachan says:

      so u already posted it? u posted it as a post or u put my blog link in the comment box in some SS501 post?
      emm, can u give me the link in AKP? just to make sure that everything is posted accordingly..thx

  40. Joanne says:

    well actually i just explained about the song being original etc. and i put your link to your blog and i credited you. but i didn’t post up the email pics.
    i went to check again just now but the comment where i explained isn’t there yet only the comment where i mentioned to ask permission from you b4 reposting any info. so that means the comment with the explaination and your blog link isn’t posted there yet..i’m not sure why…maybe it’s bcos it isn’t moderated yet or something…
    sooo sorry for telling you late after i posted..really really sorry 😦 you can go see now and maybe check tmr if my other comment with the explanation is there tmr. really really sorry for telling you late.

  41. Joanne says:

    if you still can’t view the comment on AKP maybe i can send what i wrote to you by email?

  42. Jenny Lim says:

    Oops, I didn’t know this song caused so much problem, but I believe a mature fan will not say bad about other groups, if you don’t like particular group, just don’t watch or leave any bad comments, every group have their speciality, I believe you also don’t like someone bad mouth on your ideal group, right?

    SS501 is the group that lead me to study Korean (so I can sing their songs in hangul), for 44 years I didn’t watch any korean drama or listen any korean song before but Boys over flowers + SS501’s songs brought me to know this wonderful language. I appreciated this opportunity. So SS501 – Fighiting & 사랑해요 ☆

  43. y0shiHana says:

    Thanks for answering my confusions! I’ll try to spread this info to other TS.. (i’ll post in link form), and hope it’s ok.. Thanks again!!
