Kim Tae Woo, member of the group g.o.d, has then issued an official statement with regards to HyunA and BTOB Hyunsik’s plagiarism issue of g.o.d’s song “The Reason Why Opposites Attract” in HyunA’s new  track, “From Where and Until When.”

On Julu 31, a statement by Kim Tae Woo’s agency Soul Shop Entertainment, “We’re grateful for HyunA and Lim Hyunsik‘s homage (to our song) with Hyunsik’s self-composed and written song, but it’s very unfortunate that we came to know of this belatedly and we weren’t consulted nor did they get consent from us beforehand.”

“Although we’re left with the regret that it could have been a better picture if they only consulted us ahead of time, we will take this incident well as it has the intention to honor and congratulate g.o.d’s comeback,” which Kim Tae Woo added in the statement. “We hope there will be prior consultation in the future,” he emphasized.

In line with the news, following JYP Entertainment‘s statement on the issue, CUBE Entertainment’s President Hong Seung Sung has then released his statement through the agency’s official Twitter account, which states an apology for HyunA’s “From Where and Until When,” which has been under fire for its lyrics that lifted parts from g.o.d’s “The Reason Why Opposites Attract.”

“We apologize that we weren’t able to inform the concerned parties about the song that these two artists (BTOB’s Hyunsik and 4Minute’s HyunA) have written and composed as an homage to producer Park Jin Young and their seniors g.o.d,” the statement said. ”We recognize that there was carelessness on our part for not being able to carefully supervise the technicalities concerned with the intentions of our artists.”
