Composer Bahnus Vacuum has been arrested for providing Lee Hyori with plagiarized tracks.
On the 14th, YTN News reported,
“The Seoul District Public Prosectuor’s Office has arrested the 36 year old composer, Lee, for intentionally giving Lee Hyori plagiarized songs and earning thousands of dollars in profit.”
Bahnus Vacuum had fooled Lee Hyori and Mnet Media into thinking he composed songs written by other American and Canadian artists when he heard she was looking for songs for her 4th album. He earned $25,021 USD in profit.
Lee Hyori already acknowledged the plagiarism accusations on her personal fancafe on the 20th of June and put a halt to her promotion cycle. In July, Mnet Media, Lee Hyori’s former agency, also charged Lee for obstruction of work. Lee was subsequently investigated and will now face the charges.
