On August 27, Jay posted a short video on his Instagram, revealing a 25-second instrumental teaser of his upcoming song.
However, four days later, Korean netizens started accusing Jay of plagiarism.
대만 가수이자 영화배우인 주걸륜님이 인스타에 업로드 하신 신곡 프리뷰가 인피니트의 줄리아 도입부와 너무 유사한 거 같아 표절 의혹 제기합니다 pic.twitter.com/wHCtS5T5Jn— 곽묭팔 (@myxxgvly) August 31, 2021
According to these netizens, Jay’s teaser is remarkably similar to the opening of K-pop boy band INFINITE’s song 'Julia'.
'Julia' was released in 2011 and was included in INFINITE’s Over The Top album.
However, Jay has spoken out against the accusations.
