Legit the only part that sound the same is like 10 seconds of the chorus. They should have kept woozies name on the credits. This just makes then look guilt and imo, they aren't. I can guarantee you the song by coldplay was sampled just as the majority of edm is.

I'm sorry if this happened they should just admit and face the consequences, if no then just leave it and move on. Some times composers try to listening to other songs to find inspiration, maybe they heard this song and end up making it too similar, it can happen, people are humans and can make mistakes. Just move on.

Side note as a fan: Do you even know what a hardworking producer Woozi is, he stays up every night for their music and he has sacrificed a lot for the group. I'm sure he wouldn't do something as stupid as that

dude wtf this issue was already clarified last year. They added the names of the artists because the staff didn't want the producer (member Woozi and labelmate BUMZU) to get bashed. But they clarified that the music was an original piece from their producers. Why are you even using a picture of their recent comeback. This is so old news already. Why are you bringing up the past.

Am I the only one that doesn’t see any resemblance? But either way all EDM sounds the same to me so that’s probably why.

Literally all EDM sounds the same so I’m not surprised that an edm inspired song would sound similar to another...

Uhhh I mean as long as hey give credit to them it's fine it's just sampling music tho so many artists had done this and they don't get accused if they give credit to the owners. Btw Chainsmokers sampled many other ppl' work so it's no big deal
