Imitation Is Not The Best Form Of Flattery For Cambodian Shinee Copy Cats
A few months ago nn youtube, a video called ‘KHStars – Ring Ding Dong’ was uploaded. A 5 membered group from Cambodia did an imitation of SHINee’s ‘Ring Ding Dong’. Both singing and dancing.
They tried doing Ring Ding Don’g hip dance and even tried MR removed but the quality is noticeably different. Netizens commented “The group name is Ring Ding Dong too? If you’re gonna copy them, at least do it well”
The big problem here is that SM representative , after seeing the video commented “Even if they tried to be similar to SHINee, we never got any notification from Cambodia that ‘Ring Ding Dong’ would be officially used.
