[Trans] 110922 High Kick 3′s Plagiarism Controversy.. It’s Similar To An American Sitcom And A TVXQ Fanfic?


MBC’s new daily sitcom ‘High Kick! The Counterattack of Short Legs (High Kick 3)’ has begun its 120-episode journey but has already been swept up in a plagiarism controversy.

Though only three episodes have aired since it began on the 19th, the sitcom is being attacked by netizens who have made claims that certain aspects of the show are similar to other productions. One netizen said, “The show’s copied the main flow of the famous American sitcom ‘How I Met Your Mother (HIMYM)’.”

The scene in question is the very beginning of the first episode, where a 70-year-old Lee Jeok appears on a TV program and talks about his book ‘High Kick, the Counterattack of Short Legs’, reminiscing about his past. A variety of issues are shown, including the Japanese earthquake, the democratic rallies in the Middle East and Africa, the death of Bin Laden, Twitter, Hyun Bin, the audition craze and Ahn Cheol Soo. But the part that is being criticized is the introduction that attempts to deduce who Lee Jeok’s wife is. The claim that this is exactly like the concept of ‘How I Met Your Mother’ has been shared by many netizens on Twitter as well as the viewers’ thread on the ‘High Kick 3′ webpage.

Also, in the drama, Baek Jin Hui witnesses a crime in a somnambulant state and is chased by a gang without knowing why she’s being chased. Some netizens have claimed that this is similar to Jennifer Connelly’s ‘Phenomena’ while others are claiming that it’s similar to the TVXQ fanfic ‘Happy Together’. In this piece of fanfiction, Junsu witnesses a murder in a somnambulant state and though he doesn’t remember anything about that night, he’s chased by the mafia and is later found to have multiple personalities.

Regarding this, the production company Green Snake Media stated in a conversation with Kuki news, “This is the first time we’ve heard about these plagiarism claims,” and “The happenings that go on in ‘High Kick 3′ change every day as it deals with what people go through in their daily lives, and we have a total of 240 happenings that will occur in the sitcom. We believe it would be impossible for there to be no overlapping themes with other productions with so many happenings planned.“

They also added, “There were many instances in the first and second seasons of High Kick in which similar situations were set up as parodies,” and “We just starting airing the show, we think judgment should be made after watching the show for a longer period of time.”

But some netizens have been sending online news sites material that they say is proof of the plagiarism in ‘High Kick 3′ . A representative in the broadcasting industry stated, “It would be harder to find a drama that hasn’t been swept up in plagiarism,” and “Most of these instances are small happenings or things that are only slightly touched upon, making it hard to say that they are instances of plagiarism.”

[NEWS] 111001 What Made ‘Protect The Boss’ so Popular with Viewers?

SBS‘s ’Protect the Boss‘ seemed to come out of nowhere with its strong popularity, and many viewers who had no expectations were ultimately surprised by its quality content. But what made this drama stand out from the rest?

‘Protect The Boss’ was a feel-good drama that didn’t have any negative elements of an affair or a broken family; it also lacked a character that you loved to hate. The way that the characters caused problems in the story were endearing in their own way, and when the characters plotted against each other, the situation turned out pretty comical in the end.

For example, there was potential for ‘Cha Ji Hun’ (Ji Sung)’s ex-lover ‘Seo Na Yoon’ (Wang Ji Hye) and ‘Noh Eunsul’ (Choi Kang Hee) to get into a messy rivalry over Cha Ji Hun. But the two didn’t try to make each other’s lives miserable, and they become close friends.

Meanwhile, Cha Ji Hun and ‘Cha Moo Won’ (JYJ‘s Jaejoong) were rivals for a long time; instead of competing intensely against one other, the two fought like grade-school students. They would say things like, “I really don’t like him“, and get into scraps with one another that made the audience laugh. In reality, the two seemed like childhood friends rather than enemies.

‘Protect the Boss’ broke the mold of traditional Korean dramas, as the audience was able to relate with the more “average” and down-to-earth characters. Those who appeared to be the “bad” guy in the story actually wasn’t some horrible, irrational demon come-to-life; in the end, they were individuals who made some bad decisions, but ultimately sought happiness. The fact that these characters were relatable made the audience fall in love with the drama.

But the characters weren’t the only aspect that helped ‘Protect The Boss’ gain popularity. The main issue in the storyline didn’t lie with the characters’ conflicts with one another — it was in trying to disprove the stereotypes of being rich.

For example, Cha Ji Hun has a panic disorder, and although he is the boss, he cared very little about his job. He became a better man after meeting Noh Eunsul, but still had no ambition to take his father’s place in his company. He doesn’t want to inherit his father’s wealth, but even so, his colleagues called him mocking names like ‘Papa’s boy’. The story follows the hardships he endures before he could successfully break free from his situation.

‘Protect the Boss’ was comical and funny, and it also deconstructed the stereotypical ‘Cinderella’ story. Devoid of melancholy, excessive love, and senseless hatred, the story simply told of a person’s journey to find happiness in a relatable way.

[NEWS] 110930 B2ST’s Kikwang & Doojoon Remind Junsu of the JYJ Members?


JYJ‘s Junsu recently revealed his close friendship with B2ST members Kikwang and Doojoon, on Twitter.

On September 30th, Junsu tweeted Doojoon stating, “Doojoon-ah~ While I was looking at you and Kikwang today, laughter came out for some reason.” To which Doojoon replied, “Father’s laughter?” Kikwang, seeing the exchange between the two, chimed in, “Why laughter? How come I’m the only one who doesn’t understand?” Junsu then replied, “You two just… how should I say this… remind me of my members?”

Seeing the friendly Twitter exchange between the three, Netizens commented, “B2ST and JYJ seem good together. But, who is Jaejoong and who is Yoochun?,” “Junsu always had a cute image, so it’s a little awkward to hear his laughter referred to as ‘father’s laughter’,” and “It’s nice to see such a warm sunbae-hoobae relationship.”

Junsu, Doojoon, and Kikwang are currently members of the same celebrity soccer team, FC MEN.
