Big Bang and IU are April’s most pirated artists

25 May

Big Bang and IU were the most pirated singers of April 2011, according to a report released by the Korean Copyright Commission.

There were 4321 total known cases of piracy of Big Bang’s music, and 3874 cases of IU’s. SG Wannabe came in third with 3366 cases, CN Blue had 2313, and 4minute had 1502.

The most pirated song was IU’s “Good Day”, with 848 cases. Next came Mighty Mouth’s “Tok Tok” (789 cases) and Big Bang’s “Tonight” (779 cases).

Big Bang just wrapped up a tour in Japan, and IU is currently appearing on variety shows such as “Kim Yuna’s Kiss and Cry”. In the past, IU’s fans have come together to combat piracy, which is credited for the steady decline in overall sales of music in Korea.
