Netizens were surprised to discover that several of f(x) songs were remakes of English pop songs that originally didn’t get a lot of exposure. As well as f(x) songs, there are many other Korean songs that were created as remakes of English songs.
At firs some artists were accused of plagiarism but it was later discovered that the tracks has been purchased and remade, NOT copied without permission. Buying of old songs of foreign artists is common among Korean record labels that believe that they can turn that track into a hit. In these cases, many K-Pop songs were bought or sold in order to create the tracks today. How do some of there English version compare to the Korean versions?
