F(x) song "Rum Pum Pum Pum" plagiarized in Philippine teen pregnancy ads
Well, this is really awkward and weird. According to reports, SM Entertainment is taking legal action against the Philippine Health Ministry for allegedly plagiarizing the single "Rum Pum Pum Pum" by their girl group f(x). The allegedly plagiarized song has been used for the background music of public advertisements involving teen pregnancy that have been criticized for their use of "inappropriate words."
A representative for SM stated, "After the original publisher checked in regards to plagiarism of 'Rum Pum Pum Pum,' the music that was used in the Philippines' public advertisement turned out to be 'Rum Pum Pum Pum,' and we've been informed that they began taking action regarding this."

There are two issues here: Plagiarism and f(x) being connected to a subject with which they have no association, so either way they're getting the short end of the stick. Which of these two issues do you feel is worse for the group?
