Suspicions have been raised that Singer Hong Jinyoung's master's thesis at Chosun University could be plagiarism.


According to the Kookmin Ilbo's coverage on the 5th, Hong Jinyoung's master's thesis on trade at Chosun University, which was obtained through a public interest reporter, recorded a 74% plagiarism rate according to the inspection of the plagiarism review site "Carpikiller". According to Copykiller, Hong Jinyoung's master's thesis confirmed 124 identical sentences with six of the 556 sentences matched, while 365 were suspected of plagiarism. The copy killer is a representative plagiarism inspection program in Korea. It is gaining public confidence with more than 6 billion big data cases.

Hong's agency, IMH Entertainment, said, "It was not plagiarism," adding, "We went through the confirmation process on our own due to several previous allegations, but the figure fell short of the average plagiarism rate." The agency requested its own investigation data, but has not received any reply so far. In addition, the agency said it decided to deliver the contact information of the professor who reviewed Hong Jinyoung's master's thesis, but the professor retired and his number changed, making it impossible to reach him.

- 74% are a bit...


- There was no copy-killer in 2009? I think it was in 2013, but I don't even give that back in my thesis, but I do have to my undergraduate thesis.


- Wow, that's a big deal.


- Why would you want a master's degree?


- 74% is like no shield.


- As expected Hong Jinyoung ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 


- What do you mean shielding this?ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 


- When I do my homework, I don't control over 10 percent.


- Wow, even if I put it on somewhere else, it's 20 percent, but 70 percent is over.
