Scandal of All Members of D-Crunch

Accused of Plagiarizing

Although D-Crunch already has a lot of musicality, there were still some rumors said that they plagiarized work from other boy-groups, and even girl-groups. First, they were said to have plagiarized from the boy-group Seventeen by using diamond imagery, which Seventeen used during their debut era, and also by using the phrase “boom boom” in the group’s introductory greeting.

Not only Seventeen, but they’ve also been accused of plagiarizing Pentagon, according to K-nets and Pentagon’s fans. The first instance is with their album poster, which uses the same theme of having them on a rooftop.

The second instance is with a hand signal that D-Crunch used. It was pretty similar to what Pentagon did before.

D-Crunch was also accused of plagiarizing the girl-group CLC, as they used a similar template for their song. Many people defended them this time, one saying “Some concepts are recycled. I have now seen THREE groups do the same “group stands under a big blue sky with scrawled white writing” concept. Which wasn’t new to begin with!”

Facing so many accusations of plagiarism early in their debut isn’t a nice way to begin. D-Crunch talked about these issues during the showcase for their first mini album, M1112 (4Colors). Hyunwook explained, “We know that we were suspected of concept plagiarism. We were taken aback when we first heard it. Ever since we were young, we had been dreaming of becoming singers and practicing by following our amazing senior idols.”

He continued, “Of course, we want to follow our seniors. We want to become like them. However, that’s all. It has only been three months since we debuted. We are still in the process of finding our colors. We are sorry for the controversy that happened, but we hope people will look at us with an open mind.”

It’s a little harsh to bully them by accusing D-Crunch of plagiarizing the other group’s concept, since they already worked hard to make their debut happen. Let’s support D-Crunch with an open heart and mind!
