It seems that the popularity of “Man from the Stars” gets to be a case of plagiarism.

SBS Contents Hub, which takes the publication rights of “Man from the Stars,” stated, “The drama has not been made after acquiring the legal publishing rights. It can be considered to be a plagiarized version.”

The Indonesian drama “Kau Yang Berasal Dari Bintang” has been under fire for a similar content with the drama and SBS’ “Man from the Stars.” A Chinese media outlet reported that the setting and story have been almost identical to “Man from the Stars.” It premiered last April 28 on the local channel, RCTI.

“We are currently in talks with another Indonesian company regarding the official publishing rights, but this drama has begun airing. We are looking for a way to take action against the drama,” SBS added.

“Man from the Stars” played by Kim Soo Hyun and Jun Ji Hyun had received much love from Asian fans, thus, making it one of the popular dramas.

Since the drama is so popular, is it fine to copy the plot and the setting?
