[NEWS] 091120 Cassies' 'Love Melody' is So Good, but It's Stolen?

Cassiopeia is the official fan club of TVXQ / DBSK / Tohoshinki and the biggest in the world according to the Guinness book of world records. Around late October, some Cassiopeia members in Korea released a song titled "Love Melody." The song was made for members of TVXQ who are going through tough times. The fans apparently wrote the song, the lyrics and sang it themselves. The song had impressive quality for something done by amateurs, so much so that a Digital album was released and the song began selling on various websites / portals. Cassies said that all the proceeds would go to charities. So basically, Fans make a song for their beloved oppas to cheer them on during their hard times and they donate money the money from the song to charity, what can possibly go wrong with that?

The problem is the fact that Love Melody is accused of plagiarizing another person's song. A person named Shin, who writes songs / music for a hobby, had posted a song titled "Cause I want you" on a song writing community on the web and was contacted by Soh, a Cassie who was involved in Love Melody project. Soh told Shin, "I came across this song and I love it. Do you mind if I use this song so I can give a little gift to TVXQ? We're not doing it to make money." Shin happily agreed to this, but a month later he found out that the song which copied the melody of his song was being sold online. What enraged him further was the fact that Cassies posted the songwriter as "Eun Hyun," not giving any credit to Shin.

Shin contacted the Cassies who led this project, and said that he doesn't care whether they sell the song for money or not, he just wanted himself listed as the songwriter. He contacted Soh and Soh responded by telling him not to falsely accuse Cassies, and even said "We revised the melody and it's just sampling, why are you making such a big deal out of this" and "Go ahead and sue us, lets see who gets hurt."

Love Melody has already been advertised as a song written and sung by Cassies and Shin has no doubt suffered damage from this situation. Will he be able to hear any word of apologies from the biggest and most powerful fan club in Korea? We'll see but the song writer seems to want justice. With TVXQ going through so much drama, it seems their fan club can't escape it as well.
