CNN airs the Taiwanese version of "Bo Peep Bo Peep", controversies arise

The U.S News channel CNN reported on the popular Taiwanese singer Lotus Wang (42)'s new song 'Bobee', but has been controversial amongst Korean fans.
CNN and MTV introduced Lotus Wang by mentioning how she has sold more than 100 million records and started a worldwide craze over YouTube with her latest song 'Bobee'. They also gave her high praises, comparing her to Beyonce.
However, after it aired, it appeared on various online bulletin boards and received many complaints from Korean fans on how 'Bobee' wasn't the original, and how they did not even mention T-ara's name.
In fact, Lotus Wang's 'Bobee' was a remake of T-ara's Bo Peep Bo Peep' and was reproduced with the permission of agency officials and the composer.
Netizens said, "They aired a parody instead", "It's a remake, right? It's not plagiarism?", "T-ara's music videos have much more hits on YouTube. They do not even know what they are reporting," and were very bitter.

CNN,you should have mentioned T-ara's name,"South Korean's Group" is certainly not enough!
