Did Philippine DOH Plagiarize F(x)'s "Rum Pum Pum Pum" KPOP Song for an Anti Teen Pregnancy Campaign?
|GABO stands for "Gaga Girl" (Bitch Girl) and Bobo Boy(Stupid Boy)|
A more than 3 minute video features a pep squad dancing to the upbeat tune to reach out to the teens. We all know that teens like to listen to upbeat music and cheerleading is indeed a good way to get their attention. However, the beat of the song did not slip through the ears of the K-pop fanatics in the Philippines because it was identified to be a rip off of a Korean girl group f(x)'s Rum Pum Pum Pum song. Although the message of the songs are completely different, the beat and the rhythm are very similar.
K-pop is growing in the Philippines and it influences even the Original Philippine Music and the taste of the Filipino youth in terms of music. Eventhough they could not understand the lyrics of a Korean song, Filipinos are adapting the Korean music because of its unique beat and the artists behind the song. Any attempt to copy the rhythm of any Kpop song will surely be identified by the Filipino fans and this DOH Anti Teen Pregnancy campaign is not an exemption.
Be the judge if the DOH Anti Teen Pregnancy campaign plagiarized F(x)'s
Rum Pum Pum Pum.
Here is the music video of F(x)'s Rum Pum Pum Pum:
